Thank you Vikki for my next weight loss Challenge! I finally got started over on Spark People at the beginning of January (Spark Your Body Challenge)and then ran across her Summer Challenge blog here and followed it to the Fab40 & Beyond & Fighting Flab group back at Spark People.  

I got a good start with an 8 lb loss and then ended up gaining 1.5 lbs back when my momentum wained a bit. Some of my changes have been.....gave up my wine, turns out I didn’t miss it as much as I thought I would. Started exercising for about and hour a day, and working on improving my eating habits. The worst one I have is night time snacking. That has been a struggle and when I fell a few days ago, that was the area that I landed on my “knees“, or maybe I should say my “face” in, with the bit of a gain.

However, today I’m jumping back on the bandwagon and getting on with it. At 45 it is TIME to start taking care of myself. I want to feel better, look better and get out of the general rut my life has been in since turning 40. So as “they” say (whoever “they” are) is the first day of the rest of my life!!!  

So this is how it is.....I need to lose about 40 more lbs before July 2010. I’ve set my Guy’s family reunion as my goal date, which is actually the 2nd weekend of July (I think). So SUMMER HERE I COME, BETTER THAN EVER!!!

I still need to get a before picture up too. I’ll try to get that done before the end of this week.

Are you with me Ladies!?estatic
