- 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.

Who's that girl?
Tonight we went out to dinner and I overate. Nothing like in the past, but still enough to feel uncomfortable. And I hate that feeling. But quite honestly I used to like the feeling of being overly full. Now it not only means a negative impact to weight loss, but also my exercise plan. It isn't guilt that I feel, just awareness that when I overeat I am acting like a person I no longer am.
