Hi, my name is Sucatha. I'm 48 years old, happily married to the most wonderful man, and the proud mother of three amazing boys: William, 29, Justin, 25, and Stephen, 23.

I have been overweight more than half my life. As a young girl, I wasn't overweight, I even modeled for a time. It was during my pregnancies that I started putting on weight and never took it off, only adding to it.

I have tried over the years to lose weight and get fit and I've had short term success, but nothing lasting. But now, as I look at my life and where I am physically and emotionally about my body, this is my breaking point, this is my line in the sand. I have made a decision that this is where the rubber meets the road. I'm not focusing on my long term goals of getting to 135 lbs with 18% body fat. That's overwhelming. Instead, I'm going to focus on taking the every day steps, making the daily choices that will create a snowball effect and build momentum to propel me towards reaching my goals.

I invite you to come along this journey with me as I make my daily choices to reach my goal.

    I've always liked this quote, it's so very true. I had a really relaxing weekend, hope you did too. But today it's back to the grind. Let's don't forget to get our bodies moving. I'm going to try for 15,000 steps today, join me if you dare.

    Hope you have a fantastic Monday, Sucatha!

    This is so true. I've adjusted my attitude and I'm hoping this will bring me the results that I'm after. One change at a time. NEVER GIVE UP, WE ARE WORTH THIS FIGHT!!
    Sucatha, I hope you're having a wonderful week.

    “Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” ~Mark Victor Hansen~

    Did really good with my steps last Thursday and Friday. (not so good on the weekend) Gonna kick it into high gear today, I'd like to get in 10,000 steps every day this week, and I'm challenging you to keep up with me. emoticon

    Hope you have a marvelous Monday!
