About me... I've been an active SP member since July 31st, 2006. I have developed some great friendships and learned so much!

I will be 54 in September 2020. I have struggled with maintaining a healthy weight for most of my adult life. I lose the weight and then it comes back. With COVID-19 and working from home, I decided it was time to try medication to support me in my transformation. With a history of depression - I finally see that this was a great cause in my going to food and alcohol for self-medication. I started a new regime/meds on Monday April 20, 2020 and I've been feeling so much better! I've been consistently journaling and working out 5 to 6 times a week since June 8, 2020.

My greatest barrier to reaching my health goals has been alcohol. I lead the group Cutting Down the Booze (Calories) here with SP and also lead a group on Facebook (Lose 'da Booze 100 Day Success Group and another group for those age 50+ wanting to live more AF - alcohol free). I continue to strive towards leading a sober life (having achieved my longest consecutive streak of 277 and working to being 100% AF). I blog about my journey on my website www.losedabooze.com

****************************************
AFFIRMATION FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE! (taken from my The Secret Dec 31, 2008 calendar page):
"In the new picture of coming years, I see my life growing and expanding in everything: in health, youth and unlimited energy at all times and in all circumstances. I see myself in complete freedom. I see unlimited growth in my personal capacity, mental power, and intellectual brilliancy. I see constant improvement in all elements of my personality and my body. I see daily growth in my wisdom, understanding, insight, and realization. I see myself in peace, harmony, love, and joy, and I see my character expanding to be stronger and more beautiful. I see the never-ending betterment of friends, associations, and environments. I see myself in everlasting joy and infinite bliss."

Personal Information:
My name is Helene. I live with a loving spouse and have adult children (and one daughter who suffers from severe mental illness). I work full time working administrative assistant at a children's hospital, a volunteer workplace wellness advocate and a Certified Holistic Wellness Coach with the International Association of Wellness Professionals.

I am an advocate for sober living and help others who want to cut out the habit of alcohol that has taken too much space in their lives (and minds).


Other Information:
I'm big on motivational quotes/mantras but ACTION is what gets you to the other side!

I have ups and downs like everyone else - but the important thing is to keep moving forward and not look back. Sometimes things don't always go the way we planned but we get there... and that's what counts! I'm a believer - ANYTHING is possible once you put your mind to it!

I am a firm believer in daily personal development.

I believe that we must continually strive to live in the NOW, without fear or worry of what is to come. Each Day is a NEW Life!
