I have so many times started and quit. In the last three to four months I feel my health is slowly heading south. I am trying to find a balance in a world of unbalance. I have decided to start with three goals for the next four weeks. Once I... Read more

Well on day Tuesday, week 2 of my program. I have lost two pounds even though the last four days were more of my old ways but with added veggies. I am seeing some progress. My stomach looks flatter. It may just be water but I will take it. ... Read more

I am finishing week 1 of Lifefit by Denise Austin. I am so tired and frustrated of being on this hamster wheel of dieting and being overweight. I am trying to retrain myself to eat for my health and body and not out of pleasure. I love food a... Read more

As I go on this journey (again), I realize the reason I keep failing. It is not a two month or three month process but a life process. My health and the health of the ones I love does not end in two months but continues. I was not seeing this... Read more

I do not know why but I have always seemed to hate to measure or weigh. I do know why. For years I have hovered around the same weight and no matter what I do it never decreases. I had decided I am satisfied with my weight. Then I noticed my... Read more

I am starting this journey again. I seen a picture of myself and was so disappointed. I am bigger than I thought I was. The truth slapped me in my face. I know that is what I needed but it is so hard to see that reality. I heard a quote fro... Read more
