About Me

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.

I found out yesterday that I am on the testing list for karate. I will be testing for my green belt. So there is pressure, of the best kind, to prepare for the test. Just 10-15 minutes a day will make a big difference.

No weight loss this week ... 4 days in a row of off plan eating does not make for weight loss. No, I didn't gorge, but at this point I don't have a lot of room for error. Losing weight at 175 lbs is going to be harder than losing it at 215 lbs. I feel fairly confident about the long term though, and I know I am not going back.
