Okay, ready to give this another try, without joining all the "clubs" or getting involved in all the drama. I'm here to track my food/exercise/habits and encourage others. period.

I will try to get on here at least semi-regularly, but don't look for me to strike up all the old (toxic) relationships i had before. I'm running under the radar here, folks.

And now, for a few PERSONAL words (for ME ... but if you like 'em, good going)

Today WILL be a good day. i will get things done. i will plan my meals and snacks. i will remember to take my meds. i will MOVE. i will clean house. just a little, but i'll do SOMETHING.
Hey, YO, G: just get up and DO IT. You know the steps, get up and DANCE. Life is WHIZZING by ... USE it.

Fitness Minutes: 850

My Goals:
I want to weigh what my driver's license says.

Seriously, I just want to be healthy ... for the first time in my life.



My Program:
I'm back for more ... withOUT the drama & getting involved WAY over my head in other people's "stuff". I'm here for ME ... if some people absorb some of the stuff I've learned by osmosis. good. I've already made drastic changes in the way I eat and my head is in a much better place.



Personal Information:
I'm now live in Bangor, Maine. I like the weather MUCH BETTER here. It is SOOO nice to have four seasons.
Of course, in Maine, 4 seasons means Winter, Mud, Tourist & Leaf.


Other Information:
I'm a Cajun, originally from Louisiana, transplanted to Maine. Hence the name. I also spent 15 years living/working in NYC ... so yo, fuhgeddaboutit!
(and i KNOW "cajun" is misspelled in my screen name - that's for privacy sake!)

    I am glad you have made a lot of changes already. That is great.

    I hope you are able to relax and be aware of your health and love of yourself. I hope you take time during the day to give to yourself. Often we get so involved in listening to the negative self-criticism that we don't need to go anywhere to find someone to abuse us, because we do that job so well ourselves. Spend time in quiet time. You have strength inside to reach any goal. Nurture yourself with positive thoughts.

    If you are an emotional eater, read "SHRINK YOURSELF" by ROGER GOULD, M.D. on how to stop the cycle. He has interviews at YouTube if you do a search for him there.
