Starting over. Again...

But that is OK. I've come to realize that losing weight is not going to be easy and that my "plan" doesn't have to be all or nothing. Even modest changes in diet and exercise will make a difference in improving my overall health.

Since leaving college and starting a family, I've gained a considerable amount of weight. After giving much of my time to my family and work, I've decided it is time to focus on me for a while. I know that sounds selfish, but I need to find "me" again. I guess I've found my spark again.

    Hi Ami! emoticon What's new with you? You haven't been around in awhile emoticon Hope everything's been going great! I'm almost done with the 90 program, and I've seen huge changes in my body but not nearly enough on the scale, so I'm going to give it another try, but this time focus on the food portion too, so today I'm pulling out Tracy's book and checking out her food plan again. But I'm also contemplating the 17Day Diet and looking into the Eat to Live program. How do you like that? Wish me luck! Anyway, Hope you have a great week! Miss you!

    emoticon to the Tracy Anderson Metamorphosis team! It's a tough workout, unlike anything I've done before, but I LOVE it. I never thought I'd say that. When I first tried it I HATED it. emoticon emoticon Congratulations on finding your Spark again. Good luck working toward your goals. And I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing, and perfect Mother's Day tomorrow.
