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.

Hang Loose

I used to love to wear oversized t shirts, to get that feeling of "hiding" my fat. No more! Even around the house, I now feel terrible in t shirts that are too big. I feel sloppy. I went to Target and bought some new sleepwear -- definitely comfy and casual, but the right size, NOT a size that will drown me.

I had a great exercise weekend, but even though I did not go hog wild with food, I ate a lot of salt, and the scale reflects that. I am looking forward to a good week ahead.

Great site! I'm trying to find an email address to contact you on about possibly adding a link to my website on your page. I would be so grateful if you email me back so I could tell you more about it.

Thanks and have a great day!
