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 commenting on my blog. Yes, it is difficult to do activities with back pain. Each day is a little better. Thanks for the support.

From a fellow emoticon
Thank you so much for the bloglove on my Itty Bitty Steps post. I'm flattered that this touched you. I've had 2 days of eating with tiny bites and so far it's been pretty easy - but then - I have all these people cheering me on. I really feel their support and now, when it could be getting hard to stay enthusiastic, I can remember you and buoy up my efforts. so - emoticon too!

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog and for your ongoing support! emoticon

I too used to follow the Discovery channel and the challenges they hosted with Dr. Peete, I have a book by her. And she calls the area, the
"menopot".... she also suggested a technique that I was looking for to determine what is subcutaneous vs. visceral fat.

How have you been doing?... what type of nutritional and fitness regiment are you following? Are you making the progress?

Well, time to get to work... talk to you later... ~ Dee emoticon

Just saw the comment that you left on my spark page. Yes, it is frustrating when younger people lose weight so easily and we struggle for every pound. But when we were that age, we did not have all this knowledge and our weight probably fluctuated a lot too. Now we have more control over our lives and our life situations. It is better for us to be fit now as opposed to then because it matters more as we get older. I think it is better to end up fit than to start fit and end up a mess. Keep at it! You can do it! I just saw your status from 2 hours ago about having a big appetite today. I have had one lately too! Water water water! Veggies and anything high fiber, apples or whole wheat pastas! I heard that you lose more weight too if you eat 60% of your entire's day eating BEFORE 3 p.m. (Dr. Oz show). Good luck! I am rooting for you!
