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 am experiencing a setback. I am up 3 lbs from my low weight, but it is not really a matter of numbers, it is a matter of mindset. I have lost focus, and it shows in my lack of progress. To reflect this I updated my myfitnesspal weight, not because 172 is so different from 169, but to move forward I have to be honest with myself.

My first big goal was to reach 165. I know I can achieve this this summer if I don't cut corners on my eating plan. I have been working out, and have achieved some personal bests with running, so I am satisfied there.
