- 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.

Visualize Whirled Peas
One of my biggest weaknesses is wine. I had gradually slipped back into a daily glass. While it is not a ton of calories, daily booze is not a great weight loss tool. Then I realized that as much as I enjoy drinking the wine, envisioning having the glass beforehand is as big a draw for me. So now in the morning I put a giant glass of water with lemon slices in the fridge. On the way home from work, I visualize that water, and it is pretty appealing.
