I'm ready for a change, I need to get my bad eating habits under control so here I go... God give me strength to succeed. I know the road is tough ahead of me because I have been here many times before, but I will not give up no matter how many times it takes me...I am determined to get this unhealthy weight off of me! So my journey begins again Today. :)

My Goals:
It's time for me to succeed in living a healthy life! I need to take things one step at a time...and fully commit to changing my eating habits. So I will take baby steps...slow and steady wins the race! First increasing my water intake and eating at least every 4 hours.

My Program:
The biggest thing that helps me is eating at least every 4 hrs. Followed by eating a good high fiber breakfast.
I have increased my water to at least 6 glasses a day.
I also LOVE chocolate, so I have a little each day...I have found a dark chocolate that really satisfies me with just having 2 TBSP. I add some raw almonds or raw peanuts and I have a heart healthy snack full of mono unsaturated fat that takes my cravings away. If you love chocolate like I do, just knowing I can have some each day and still lose weight is AWESOME!
Another thing I have started is to stop eating at least 2 hrs. before I go to bed. I need to start introducing a exercise plan in the days to come.

Personal Information:
I'm a Proud & Happy mother of an AWESOME son, Cody...he's my life!
He is now attending college for Mechanical drafting. I will be celebrating my 26th wedding anniversary with my hubby, Dale. I have a spoiled puppy who thinks he's the ruler of the house... Oliver!
My family means the world to me and we have so much fun together from friday night game nights to popcorn and movie nights...life is good!
My mom is my best friend and we love shopping and craft fairs and spoiling people with our kindness...she has always been there for me and I will always be thankful for a great childhood.
I work as a school bus driver... which I love.
My favorite past times are camping, cooking, the beach, and collecting cookbooks and I just really love life! God has Blessed me with some many wonderful things!
