I need to get on board, hold myself accountable and just get on with life.

It seems that my focus on losing weight and all my talk about self care has been just that for so long now.

I did some soul searching, thought about why WW and LA Weight Loss worked in the past and decided accountability is a big part of their program.

My weekly blogs will be a stream of consciousness that I can look back on to monitor where my head was at in addition to see where the scale went ...up or down.

The blogs stopped but the accountability has not because the buck stops here. I can't go another month, year without getting closer to my goals because quitting is not an option.

My Goals:

My goal is to turn back the clock by losing 100 lbs. I realize now that a quick fix will not do but rather a dedicated and concerted effort toward developing a new lifestyle is truly the answer.

It requires dedication and consistency and maybe being a little easier on myself. One of my biggest problems is turning one mistake into a binge which makes it harder to get back on track. I think Dr. Oz called it a U turn but I would say it's more like driving right back out of the ditch you dug.


My Program:

Had success with Weight Watchers way back in the day and does anyone remember LA Weight Loss. The one thing they both have in common is counting exchanges which to me is a simple way of keeping track of your macros which seems to be in vogue. I started intermittent fasting but found it limiting and soon as I feel deprived I go on and on with a world tour, never ending last supper. Now I figure 12 hours without eating is a fairly solid effort in giving my system a rest.



Personal Information:

Fresh start #970...new chapter is my constant mantra. They say that has something to do with being a Scorpio. Live in Calgary, Alberta Canada

Refer to myself as Babe as it is an old nickname from childhood that my dad had for me and I joke that to claim it you got to name it......let's hear it for a self fulfilling prophecy.


Other Information:

"You have to stay in shape. My grandmother, she started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 97 today and we don't know where the hell she is."

    Yea!! I'm so glad you're in with the 28 day challenge. I start my day 1 on Monday.
    I'm totally going to make any of the aerobic videos all low impact. I can't do jumping jacks, so I'll be doing one leg out at a time with arms going over my head...low impact style jumping jacks.
    LETS DO THIS!!

    Happy Friday!

    A Neutron walks into a bar, and asks the bartender, "How much for a beer?"
    The bartender says, "For you? No charge".

    Why can't you trust atoms?
    Because they make up everything!

    Why are chemists so good at solving problems?
    Because they have all the solutions.

    I enjoy telling chemistry jokes, but only periodically.

    Where do light bulbs like to go shopping?
    At the outlet stores.

    Thanks for stopping by to say Hi, leave a goodie, or leave a note! I love them all, and thank you for your encouragement and support.
