- 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.

170's, here I am
Today I woke up to 179 on the scale. I am very excited by that. After I had my first son, I was appalled to weigh in at 175 (this was the year 2000). I lost a little weight but then gained it back, plus more.
Now the only way is down! And because of working out, I think I look better on the way down, than I did on the way up, at the same weight. Either way it is a good way to end 2010. 36.5 pounds lost.
