Years ago I stumbled across Martha Beck's book "Finding Your Own North Star". I loved everything about the book, and could not get enough of her writing. Fast forward to 2012 when I decided to enroll in Martha Beck Life Coach Training, where I learned amazing things and met fabulous, smart people. I am still not certain that life coaching will ever be my full time career, but I am having fun playing around with ideas about life coaching people who are struggling with weight loss and wellness, as well as parents of children with learning disabilities -- situations with which I am well familiar. At some point I will have my own website, but in the meantime, I have created a Facebook page where I plan to post all sorts of random thoughts. You can find it here.

- 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.
