Starting over again. Not sure when I wrote the words below (at least one year ago), but they sound familiar.......however, I am STILL not giving up. Today is 1/20/14. I pray this truly WILL be my year to get healthy!

Here I go again.........I figure I have lost and re-gained hundreds of pounds over the past 20 years. Ugh. What a waste. However, I'm choosing NOT TO DWELL on this! Instead, I am going to focus on staying positive and never giving up! I have learned that when I am using SparkPeople, tracking my food & exercise, I see positive results! It is up to me to put in the time and make the effort. I don't know of anyone who has lost 100+ pounds, and gotten healthy by sitting on their couch. So, what am I waiting for? Seriously.... I am not waiting any more! I can do something positive for my health each day.

My Goals:
A few of my goals/motivators for getting healthy and losing weight:
being around to see my daughters get married, possible grandchildren, going ice skating, horseback riding, amusement park rides, body surfing in the ocean & gulf of Mexico, get off blood pressure medication, not be afraid of the camera, buy "normal" sized clothing, not have to wear a bra with ten rows of hooks in the back, I could go on and on....

My Program:
First and Foremost: having God in my life and doing His will. Including: lifestyle changes--healthier food choices, portion control, walking and Celebrate Recovery to deal with emotional eating issues, co-dependency, and all the other challenges that come my way!

Personal Information:
