My five year maintenance is coming up in August 2018!

3/2018 First page update in a couple years: two biggest changes are going vegan (2/2017) and beginning travel nursing (11/2016)! Big changes and the traveling makes it so fun trying new gyms all over the country and getting to spend times in more health minded communities!

"Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow." --Unknown

I am done being unhappy with my (physical) self. I'm doing it the right way this time, seeing the results, and ready to keep the lifestyle that keeps the results. There is a right way and many wrong ways to lose weight, and I'm doing it the right way this time. If it's not something you can do for life, then why do it at all?

    Saw your post on the community feed. Travel can be challenging. I'm not a total vegan, but do eat high starch, lots of WHOLE grains not usually available "out there," beans with all kinds of flavorings. With COVID, I've been able to be very focused. I miss the social aspect of eating out but not dealing the narrow vegan/ non-lethal starch choices! And the wheat. Yada yada. Poor me, huh? Best wishes for your renewed lifestyle. Maybe see you on the vegan team.
