My 49th year is now upon me and I have spent more than half of my life struggling with weight. It''''s exhausting and I want to be done with it for good. I am here to look for help, support, education and hoping to create my own ''''''''''''''''lightbulb'''''''''''''''' moment.

Update June 16th 2016 - I have to start practicing 'one day at a time'

Reduce alcohol by mixing in water in between

Tracking as much as I can
Increase nutritional value of food I am eating - healthier snacking

I love being in and around the water so enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling and boating. Love walking (aka strolling!) the beach with my dog Dexter.

    "The best things in life aren't things."

    There's nothing wrong with having nice things but the nicest are those relationships we build with others, the love we're able to give and get back freely from those who are dear to our heart, the positive impact we make as we continue to inspire and encourage those around us.. and those who inspire and encourage us back.

    Thanks for being a positive impact on the firecracker's team. Have a great week!

    emoticon Your comment about the peas made me laugh! I am not having a very successful time on my trip, but I'm trying not to go too crazy. I'm sure my weigh in on Monday will reflect my choices emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Endurance isn't just the ability to bear a hard thing but to turn it into glory. - W. Barclay

    We're almost at the halfway point on the 5% challenge and a couple days till we begin racing towards St. Louis, Missouri. Let's stay focused and continue being the fabulous Firecrackers that we are! Have a healthy weekend and a great weigh in.
