I had to stop and read my page to remind myself why I am here.

My weight is out of control and I need to put my foot down once and for all.

I have dedicated my life to others, with no regard to my health or appearance. It is time to make myself a priority. I want to live a long, healthy life filled with love and adventure. It's time to live!

There is NO time like the present ... today is the only day that matters. Yesterday is history, you can't change it no matter how much you want to (now forgive yourself and move forward). Tomorrow, who knows what you will do. TODAY - What you choose to do today ... carries great consequences.

"To Thine Own Self Be True"


My Mantra ... (repeat 10 Xs each morning):

I am ready to embrace a fit future. To bring balance and contentment into my life. I am ready to achieve this goal I have set for myself. I am ready to keep my word to myself. My body is primed to release the extra weight I am still carrying. I will not abuse my body any more. I am ready to let my inner Goddess out ... I deserve to be happy and enlightened.

    Hi Christy! It has been a long time! It's good to see you! That's great you're working and finding a new house. Where are you working and living? How old is Riley now? She must be well into high school by now?

    So sorry to hear about your struggles! Have you tried eliminating allergens, like grains, dairy, soy, etc.? Just a thought.

    I am doing pretty well, struggling to stay on track and do what I have to do. I do well for a bit, then I fall off track and have to get back on. I have managed to maintain a 10# loss since the fall, but struggling to keep losing! I have been playing with my ratios too to try and find what works. I even plateaued on low carb! I know I do not follow my diet/exercise 100% of the time but it still seems like I should be doing better than I am.
