Wow.... I was really doing this and doing it good !
On April 14, 2018 I decided to give myself a year to change.
Instead of going on a diet I decided to make a lifestyle change.
And it was is working great.

When I started I could only walk 10-15 min before cramping up. But with some help from a chiropractor I got to the point of walking 10K on my 1 year Anniversary!

But late spring outside circumstances created emotional stress in my life and I stopped focusing on me....on top of that a trochanteric bursitis stopped my walks and this combo led to a 15 lbs weight gain over the summer!
My hip still is not ok but today, September 15 2019, I’m starting over with major focus on my Food!

I am truly a work in progress and while I am keeping my eye on the final goal, I will take it One day at a time, and make sure I celebrate every lbs lost and focus even more on non scale victories
