My Program:

*I refuse to eliminate foods I love from my diet.

*I try to get 8000+ steps a day, but it;s not the end of the world if I get fewer than that.

*My goal is to spend at least 10 minutes each day doing some physical activity that I enjoy (strength training, walking, Gazelle, trampoline).

*I take a rest day when my body tells me it needs it.

*I say kind things to myself and celebrate my successes.

Personal Information:

"Permanent weight loss begins with the acknowledgment that you want more out of life. You must decide that you are deserving of more happiness, more joy, and more peace. You want to return to the aliveness that you were born with. (Catherine L. Taylor)
