About chocolate. There is another thing I could give up, maybe forever. Now..... I don't mean chocolate cake. No way, I'm not giving that up. But chocolate candy? Yes.
What is this conspiracy that makes women think they must worship chocolate to be real women?
When I was *trying* to lose weight, I would allow myself one square of dark chocolate at night. But I don't really like it! That was dumb.

- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.
