...of great health and liking what I see in the mirror. You know how New Year's Resolutions work- get started when the motivation is high, give up when the motivation wains. I decided to be in the 8% this year and see my resolution through for an entire year. It is sometimes easy and sometimes an uphill battle. When I am focused and mindful, I make steady progress. When I am neglectful, the progress stops. It's that simple. I still have work to do, and habits to work on. I know I have to stay diligent, keep doing the things that are working for me, and keep building more healthy habits...one at a time...

6/1/16: 159.9 (lost 41 lbs when focused and purposeful)
1/1/16: 198.8 (no one likes where they start)
