    emoticonI'm soooo glad you're here!!!

May I give you a hint that has worked so well for me? And I've lost a LOT of weight. Work on what causes you to eat while you're losing. The mental work is as important or more important than the scale work in my book. When I didn't do it, I kept regaining what I'd lost. I'm finally back at goal, down 155 pounds, and I feel better in control than I ever have in life. BUT! I've regained and lost so many times the last 40 of those pounds. I had to do a lot of work to figure out why I was eating and learning how to have better ways of managing my stress.

YOU can do this too!!! YOU'RE soooooo worth the effort!!!

I worked out on the eliptical!!!

Sunday, April 04, 2010

I got on the eliptical for the first time 3 weeks ago, when I started working out and lasted 3minutes (and I was dying). Friday I was on for 15 minutes after 35 minutes on the treadmill. I am so proud of myself. Monday I am going to start with the eliptical for 20 minutes and then go to the treadmill.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon - I love the elliptical. I usually start out with it first then do some other cardio. You will definitely rock it, starting it first.

My New Life, Finally out of Darkness

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Nine months ago I walked out of a horrible situation. I left my husband of seven years with nothing but my kids and our clothes. I was scared at times and thought I should go back. I was afraid I made the wrong decision. My self-esteem and confidence were so low from years of being neglected by my husband and verbally & emotionally abused. I had such a hard time even giving eye contact when talking to people. I was sad all the time. But I am ready for that to change.

I want my happiness back. I have to wonderful kids, a relationship with God that is getting closer every day, a career that I dreamed of since childhood and finally a peaceful household. I have been trying to take better care of myself physically, mentally and spiritually. Finally I think my life will be on the upswing. I want to smile and laugh again.
