Get Fit Grace!

Hello, I'm Grace. In one month, I'll be 34. And in my 34 years, food has been a friend, a foe, a confidante, my biggest source of happiness, and my biggest source of pain. I've been thin, I've been fat, and everything in between.

There is sadness when I think of the years I've spent watching the scale march up, then down, then up again, hating my body, wanting to take back control, sometimes succeeding and inevitably being scared--lured--back into medicating my happiness and ...
Hello, I'm Grace. In one month, I'll be 34. And in my 34 years, food has been a friend, a foe, a confidante, my biggest source of happiness, and my biggest source of pain. I've been thin, I've been fat, and everything in between.

There is sadness when I think of the years I've spent watching the scale march up, then down, then up again, hating my body, wanting to take back control, sometimes succeeding and inevitably being scared--lured--back into medicating my happiness and sadness alike with food.

I have to believe that all of these years, all of these lessons, don't need to be in vain. So here I am again, making a commitment I have made a thousand times before, and hoping this time it is for keeps.

And maybe the key to success is making the commitment a thousand more times, every day, until I am where I want to be, in a place that this time, I will appreciate, and will not take for granted.

And once I'm there, making the commitment a thousand more times, recommitting to myself, so I don't forget that it is easier to keep going than it is to start all over AGAIN. That I'm worth the commitment, that while food can be a celebration, it is not a suitable substitute for love, for comfort, for friendship or support.

So, that' s it. That's why I'm here. Thanks for checking in!

My Goals:
7/14/2014

Current Weight: 148
Goal Weight: 135

Fitness Goal: Increase cardiovascular fitness and reduce overall body fat.

My Program:
Diet: I follow a low to moderate carb diet with lots of lean protein, vegetables and fruit. Limit sugar and refined carbs.

Fitness: I'm an enthusiast cyclist, an occasional runner and a weight-lifting wannabe. Oh, and an avid walker!

Personal Information:
I'm a 30something gal from the Midwest who loves her husband, her dogs, and her work. I love the summer, swimming, cycling, gardening, flowers, reading, running, cooking, deck cocktails and laughing.

I do not love chafing thighs, muffin top, bra bulge, crying on the inside, skipping social events because my pants are too tight, wondering if my husband is embarrassed of me like I am embarrassed of myself, humiliation over eating in front of anyone, eating my feelings, and constantly, constantly saying tomorrow.

And that's why I'm here.
