Beautiful rainbow last night. Even though it didn't rain yesterday. Weird.

Sun came out, beautiful day!

Hi, my name is Liz and I am working my way back to a healthy way of life. Having been overweight all of my adult life, I have decided that the now or never time has come. I am striving to be a better me in all ways and have fun in the process.

I've been very lax in my eating and exercise habits fo awhile now. I've gained back about 40 of the 60 pounds I had lost. I've had some physical problems, back and other things that have made it difficult to get moving again. But I am ready to go back at it as much as my health will allow at this point. I've dusted off my food scale, found the dreaded weight scale and have gotten rid of most of the junk food in the house. I feel like I've reached a now or never point in my life. I want to be healthy, I deserve to be healthy, I WILL get healthy and stay there.

I look forward to sharing my renewed journey with my spark friends.
Together we can do this, get healthy, live healthy, stay healthy.

My Goals:
My goal is to get moving again. Last year I tore 2 tendons in my foot which led to surgery in June 2015. A long recovery led me to much inactivity. While I still have to be careful, it's time for me to move again!

My Program:
I am learning that I like/love exercise along with counting calories and using portion control.

Personal Information:
i'm approaching the BIG
6-0 this summer. A good time to reevaluate where I am in my life.

Other Information:
i am a huge dog lover. My last fur baby passed about 2 1/2 years ago and there has been an empty space in my heart since then. My hubby & myself are avid campers, enjoying the great outdoors. I love to read... Pretty much anything I get my hands on.

    "I've never heard of protein powder and baking soda in yogurt before. It grows you say? Does it affect the flavor at all? This may be something I'd want to try. "

    The baking soda gives it a fizzy taste, (1 tsp) but helps with balancing the alkaline in my system (I use aluminum free baking soda) .. so it's medicinal as well -- I have tried "protien powder", and it's tough to mix in, but I use my "fiber powder", and it adds (obviously) more fiber in my eats .. :) Greek yogurt has enough protien (for me) .. :)

    and yes -- the baking soda makes it grow .. :) and the only real taste that I've come around is it tastes "fizzy" .. :) and has the texture of Mousse .. :) I love it as a treat .. :)
