My family and I are serving the Lord in Wittenberg, Germany. We are active in starting new churches in the former Soviet Union.
Though we live an active, fairly healthy lifestyle, I have a lot of embedded attitudes towards food and eating from my youth that I need to overcome in order to be healthy and keep the weight off. I have watched as unhealthy lifestyles have robbed my children of their grandparents and I don't want to do that to my children and grandchildren.

I am revisiting my goals from the past that aren't quite habits -

1. Being faithful to take my vitamins every day. Without them, I don't get the magnesium or Vit D that I need.

2. Get my cuddle time in daily with my kids. When they grow up, they won't remember how much I weighed nearly as much as they will remember how much time we spent together.

3. For the next 8 weeks, I will give 100% compliance to the MyLine eating plan.

4. I will attend the gym at least twice a week and put money in the piggy band each time that I do so that I will have some money set aside to buy new clothes at the end of summer.

I will be following the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan and have just started learning about T-Tapp.

Personal Information:
I grew up in small-town Ohio, married a guy from small-town Iowa and moved to Germany. We now live just south of Berlin in Wittenberg, the hometown of Martin Luther the Reformer. We are enjoying the adventure.

Other Information:
I just read a book entitled, "How to be a Kraut". It is a "must-read" for anyone moving to Germany. Hilarious!

    Great job finding an opportunity to exercise Saturday night! Choice by choice, more movement here and there, just as you described....that's how we will build healthy habits and reach our goals.

    I'm glad we're on this quest together!

    Thank you for the goodie! I am on high alert for a few days, not to fall of the wagon, because my 12-week "Biggest Loser Challenge" has just ended. It was very productive and motivating; I lost 20 pounds and 6 total inches. Now I am determined not to slump just because that structure and competition is missing. I am focusing on 2 goals with Conserv. Chr. Ladies' Tea Time team (8 cups water, which I tend to forget/procrastinate if it's not on a challenge count) and taking my morning & evening vitamings, which is a habit I simply must establish now.

    I am excited to hear about your specfic goal, and I will definitely keep praying for you and for your family.

    Thanks for cheering me on about my chocolate and binge-ette blog. Identifying it and naming it made me feel powerful; talking about it is also very freeing!
