1/7/2017: Back for another challenge. This time as a cloverleaf. I'm trying to focus on health, contentment and happiness. I fell big time when I lost my Mom this summer. I soared into what I believe might be a mid-life crisis. Now I'm standing back and trying to sort through it all.

9/20/2012: I've joined the 2012 Fall 5% Challenge
I've got the excercise commitment down. Although I've been neglecting the strength training again, so I'll commit to two sessions of strength training a week, I'd like to get three in, but I need to allow for the busy schedules that interfere.
I commit to find a plan & follow it. Just not sure what that plan is yet.

1/8/2011: Had my 1st WW weigh in of the New Year today. It wasn't pretty, and I'm changing my ticker to be accountable to it.

1/3/2011: I'm determined to hit my goal weight in 2011. I have a full year to find what works and what doesn't and make lasting changes so that I can maintain my loss.

10/13/2010: I'm going to keep asking myself: "Am I giving my goals my best effort?"

I have hopes of reaching my longstanding weight goal on or before my birthday which is exactly one month from today. I am 8.5 pounds away so it is doable. However, although 8.5 might not sound like a lot to lose for me it is, I have to fight for every ounce of weight loss. I need to reach for the goal, but remember that this is not a race and I'll get there, but accept that it may not be by the 13th of November, if it happens then great.

3/4/2010: I responded to a question from a friend today with this, I realized this is my ultimate goal:

To drop thirty pounds, and tone my body during the process. To boost my metabolism to a point where running three days a week and strength training two days a week is enough for me to maintain that weight loss along with eating nutrionally sound 98% of the time

Updated 12/22/09: Now I'm 44. I have been a member of Weight Watcher since September 13th and a member of the 25 pounds by Christmas team which is wrapping up this week. It looks like I'll have lost 20 pounds since starting this challenge and I'm very proud of that.

I've learned that running in the dark, at night, in the cold and in the rain are not things I want to do. I will continue to run, either indoors or when weather permits outdoors in the brilliant sunshine.

I'm a 44 year old mother of four children. The only time I haven't dieted is when I was pregnant. I want to be in a place where maintenance is my life, not dieting.
