Hello to anyone out there that may still be reading or checking in on me. I've gotten a few messages lately and it really encourages me to keep fighting the fight! Last year was stinking hard with losing BOTH of my parents whom I was VERY close to. I did gain a little weight, but that's ok, most of that has come back off. I'm working it and eating well and I'll get back where I want to be. I know I will with His help! You may or may not be wondering what I'm doing now. Of course you're wondering or you wouldn't be reading. Right? I'm still doing the FIRM, currently mostly Firm Express. I love how they are 20 minutes and get it done. I do probably 4 or 5 workouts per week. I'm back into my clean eating mode as I LOVE how full it leaves me feeling. I enjoy feeling full. That might sound crazy to some people, but to someone who LOVES to eat it doesn't. I like to eat volume! I also get my best results when I reallyl watch the junk. This year marks TEN YEARS since I started my weight loss journey. It's weird that I don't really recognize my former self. It was like it was another life. I NEVER want to go back there, however if I' honest with myself I know it would be sooo easy to. Remember....I LOVE to eat! There are times when I enjoy a workout, but for the most part I do it because I HAVE to. I feel so much better when I do. I'm less stiff, I can think better, I don't feel fluffy, most of all I don't feel guilty when I know I'm doing what I NEED to do.
I keep myself out in the public eye for two reasons. 1- it helps ME. It keeps me accountable! 2- I truly DO want to help you and show you that it can be done. Wait there are 3 reasons. I hope that I can lead someone to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ! Without Him I would have quit a long long time ago.
I am on facebook and have a small check in group if you need accountability. Just shoot me a message and I'll add you if I think you're 'Ok". I probably will never update pics on here, but my girls post pics of me all the time on FB, some very unflattering ones! LOL! If you'd like to see where I am currently.
Oh, and here's a neat site I found lately www.dashingdish.com has some GREAT recipes. I haven't tried one that I didn't like. Her protein peanut butter cookies are really good! I used Kroger chunky natural in mine.
