My goal for 2020 is to lose 20 pounds. In 2019, I lost 30 pounds before falling off the wagon. I gained back 11 pounds, but that means I had a 19 pound loss for the year. That's a Win. Imagine where I could be in 5 years if I lost 20 pounds a year. I'd be at my goal of losing 100 pounds. Would I like to lose all the weight sooner? Of course, but if it takes me 5 years, I'd still have all the weight gone. So, I'm going to focus on losing that first 20 pounds.

"I will not feel deprived when I turn down junk food. I will feel empowered that I made the healthy choice." ~Unknown

"The more consistent you are, the quicker you will lose weight." ~Linda Spangle

"When done correctly, healthy meals can taste even better than full-fat restaurant meals." I've always known this... now it's time to get cooking and find healthy recipes.

Remember the opening song on the Mary Tyler Moor show (1999)? "You can have the town, why don't you take it. You're going to make it after all." Hat thrown in the air. That's my theme song for 2017.

Focusing on good habits: Fresh and healthy food, accompanied by vigorous exercise, water, sleep, fresh air, and FUN!!

    Yeah! Fitbit Challenges with your Sisters! Awesome! We are doing the best we most I hope! We have been trying to prepare meals using whatever in "in house" because we honestly talk ourselves out of Going Out for Anything. God Bless, Stay safe, stay healthy and we will get through this.

    You're right...I would wear a hazmat suit to hold Brody if I needed to! We're staying in and are safe. How are you all doing? How's Zach? Is he staying safe? It's already April...Brody is already 3 weeks old. Let's have a successful month!
