I've changed my LifeStyle, for the Better and lost Weight, through a 5% Challenge, and you can too!

I took a 5% Challenge this Spring 2014, and am I ever glad I did.
I lost 10% who wouldn't be happy with that?
I began Tracking my Nutrition, even before I knew how to use the tracker, same for my Fitness.
I began to WANT to track my calories, to see if I actually could eat 1200 to 1500 Calories, in order to lose a pound or two a week.
Who knew it was possible to be full, and happy with what I ate to stay within that range.

Plus I was seldom hungry. Except for the joy of being hungry and planning my next meal. Not top loading calories, on a full stomach. Who knew I could change old habits. Or stop mindless grazing?
It can happen for you too.
Join me, as I Journey to SlimLand. It is possible, even for you. If I can do this, and I never thougth I could... then YOU CAN TOO!

Thank you for your kind thoughts Carrol.We are very close so I have been making meals and taking them over As you said it is not the natural order of things for the child to go before the parents.Wes loved dogs so I am sure my dog True that loved him so much was waiting for him at the Rainbow Bridge and hopefully they are both restored to health and running and playing like they did years ago !

Thanks for the comment on my blog, Carrol! I pick one room of the house to concentrate on each week. Some times I actually accomplish all the goals I set for myself with cleaning, but most of the time......uh, I might hit one, two, or even three and that's it. That was this week. All I did was the refrigerator. So today I decided to get up and do EVERYTHING I had left undone this week! It wasn't all in the kitchen, either! LOL!
