What little lies, or big fat lies, do you tell yourself?
All these years I have been telling myself how much I LOVE food, as if I love the taste of it more than other people do.
I have found in the past few months that I really don't love it as much as I thought I did. I guess I loved shoving it in my mouth when I couldn't think of what else to do. Many times recently I have been hungry and cannot think of one thing I really want to eat. I don't mean one healthy thing, or one low calorie thing. I mean one anything. It's just food.
And as of today, I am 1 lb away from 15 lbs lost.

- 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.
