I live in Ontario, Canada with my hubby, cat and dog. Our two daughters have just recently moved out. I work out of a studio in my house and sculpt multimedia fantasy and other figures. I have gained weight steadily since my youngest (now 25) was born, tried many methods to lose, and am determined that this will be the answer!

I'm going to start listing some quotes here that I feel are excellent:

"I answer to myself and no one else. The person looking back at you in the mirror is the one you have to answer to every day." Dr. Wayne Dyer

"Don't let an old person move into your body" - Wayne W. Dyer

I am still writing every day... just a "check in" with myself to see what I need, what I think I should be doing (apparently if you write that enough times you will be more likely to do it eventually), and trying to eat clean. The big thing for me right now is not feeding my food monster crap. I'm trying not to snack at night either. No diet still. Probably never that.. just cutting out the bad behaviours. You will figure things out.

I did it! REached onederland! I've actually seen 198 but this morning it was back up at 200. Woo hoo! I changed a few of my foods and cut back on snacks which sounds easy but was NOT EASY. I'm doing The Writing Diet and blogging every day and trying to eat "clean" with no white sugar or processed foods. Anyways, I don't see any new blogs from you. Let me know how you are doing.

Just coming by to say hi. Ah... I have had some challenges lately. The old habits want to creep back in. Fortunately I'm not the same person and I know what to do.... just make one good choice.. and then another... and then another. It is not about perfection. It is about slowly working in the direction of my goals. Hope the summer is going well. I have not been consistently on line although I am still plugging away at healthy living. Cheers, Justyna
