My Health Journey

**After surpassing my goal, I have now gained back EVERY bit of weight I lost and more.

I'm working on taking better care of myself again. My goal is to be as healthy as I can. It's frustrating to be back at the larger size but I know that I can do better. I've got to manage stress better and make the commitment to consistently CHOOSE health over comfort.

Trying to make lasting changes in 2014.

Thank you for commenting on my blog and showing me that you are glad that I am feeling better. Positive energy is what fuels me. You are so right about getting nutrition down as a must in weight loss. I see now that I can go a little while without exercise, but I really need to pay attention to my intake if I want to lose weight. It was a hard lesson to learn, but I think that I get it now! Thank you for always being a source of support and inspiration for me! emoticon
