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.

Thanks for your kind & supportive words on my blog. Yeah, I keep telling myself not to do weight loss challenges, but then one pops up & I forget!

Hey hey! Thanks for the encouragement! I'm pleased with my 11 lbs lost, but as you've said, I'll "work that out" with strength training. I was going more cardio-heavy over the past couple of months to bring my weight down, so now I need to ramp up the strength side!

Happy Tuesday!
