10-9-13 WOO HOO! I reached my goal! Hard to believe I would ever get here---it's been a long time coming. But OH so worth it!

7-13-13 Feel so great as a result of all my hard work and support from family and SP! I can sure feel it when I walk up the hill to my house. So worth it.

5-6-13 Ready for the next challenge! I'm going to rock this thing. Yep I'm losing the weight. I certainly need to do it and it feels great. I feel confident I can do this. Keep going!

3-28-13 Feel like I need to update this story. For the first time in a long time I'm making it happen. I feel like my head is in the right place to make the necessary changes in my life. Moving forward! Stay tuned.

2-20-13 Still here. No great successes yet but thinking about making this next challenge great. Getting my head in gear.
Have discovered some sure-fire hunger curbs. (grains and protein) more later.

10-28-2012 Since this will be a long haul, I thought I'd post more often. This will provide perspective over time. Here we are on the Fall Challenge. Boy--hunger seems to be evident every day! I can usually curb it with protein. If you read this and have any great ideas pass 'm on. Thanks.

Ok. So I haven't won the lottery. (Actually I don't buy tickets.) But I can lose weight, get fit and feel great! Unlike the lottery it's an ongoing process. I can keep winning! As long as I keep moving in the right direction that's all I need to do.

Look at each challenge and figure out how to handle it better going forward. Keep a positive attitude. That's what I'm going to do.
