Here's my updated goals: Set January 24, 2012
1. Peddle while I watch TV for at least 30 minutes every night.
2. Water jog or swim at least 3 days per week.
3. Eat 4 planned meals a day (No grazine all day.)
4. Make sure there is at least a 3 hour window between meals.
5. Eat no white flour or sugar.
6. Treat myself with love and kindness.
7. Enjoy life.

Learn it! Live it! Love it!

Lose enough weight to fly on an airplane without getting charged for 2 seats so I can go on a trip to California:)

I'm a person who has dodged seriously taking control of my weight all of my life. I recently decided to make this the best year of my life and that means taking care of my weight loss and reaching a weight and lifestyle goal.
I am looking forward to my life being happy fun simple and abundant. I enjoy intellectual conversations, reading, television and an occasional movie.
I have a private practice and instead of calling myself a therapist I think of myself as an empowerment navigator. I'm always looking for good compass graphics to put on my web pages.

I got a digital camera for Christmas and I'm old enough that I get a little intimidated by new technology so I haven't quite taken a picture or put anything on the computer yet. But, my goal for next week is to do just that.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog...its even more frustrating because even though I am married my husband has a social phobia of talking on the phone so it falls on my shoulders to handle these things which is why when I had a hard year last year it fell apart. We are finally current on our house payments and will be current on our car payment by April and have payment plans in place for our electric and gas bills but its the idea of having another payment coming out right now that is overwhelming and I feel just not right. I know I made mistakes with the way I handled things but I cannot fix them if I dont have the money. We only have 3 credit cards w/ about $3,000 we owe on them but its other things that we have that make it so much worse. I'm going to be calling a local credit counseling group over lunch and trying to figure out what they can help me with. Thanks again for your encouragement it really helped me.
