Hi - I'm determined to do it right this time. This time my weight loss story started in July 2010. Although I've dealt with my weight on and off all my life. This time I'm determined to find a good weight for me and keep it there for the rest of my life. No more yo yoing for me. Like many others in my youth it was all about looking good, as I've aged it's also about staying healthy. This is the year that I am going to make things right. I'm working on my self inside and out. I'm even working on getting credit card debt free. I'm happy to report that I'm on target to achieve my goals in all areas.

Believe me this takes a lot of discipline and a new outlook. I know that in the long run I'll be so much better off. What I do today will influence what I will be down the road. So I am paying attention and working on it. That doesn't mean I don't enjoy the finer things in life. On the contrary I am enjoying it more now than ever. I eat the best food I can afford. I deserve that. And it makes choosing to eat better more enjoyable because I'm eating quality foods. I am an optimist by heart. I love life, enjoy family, friends and the simple joys of life. In July 2010 my doctor told me to lose weight or risk becoming diabetic. I'm happy to report that my lab tests are now in the normal range thanks to my efforts. I now watch my carb intake as well as my sugar intake. This resulted a 41 lbs. weight loss so far. The Sparkpeople website has been a good source of inspiration and motivation for me. We all need support and this is where you can get it. Best wishes to all of us on this journey. And thank you to all those who have helped me along the way.
