Marine Mom: I may look harmless, but I raised a Marine.

1/2/16. Revisit and time to reclaim this acronym=focus on goal. -10 pounds...firm up...stay in 25 point WW active
Will be back in February to update progress

3/25. Fluctuate between 130.5 and 131....need to stay on course with my plan. Today 130.6. Goal is 125. I think I have been comfy with this weight loss...feel healthy...clothes fit so much better...if not baggy :). But I want to be at the low end of my weight range and lower my BF before turning 50 and on upwards. Will report in a couple weeks. .no booze...log each bite...stay low end of calories.

Sept 7. 117.2!! Did whole30 ...weigh in after :). Great results :) in clothes that would not fit , other clothes less snug. Will try to continue with W30 90% of time:)
Well sticking to w30 90% of time didn't work. I did do well until December. Not sure if I felt left out. But I have ate everything. Some weight has come back but not as bad as it could be. Jan 1st I will begin w30 I like it a lot ...feel better and definitely enjoy that I can eat a lot :). Just not junk.
I also plan to buy a heavier KB and heavier weights for my barbell. I am loving squats and the changes I am seeing with my backside. I don't want to be skinny.. I want to be strong and fit.

I know how to find the word impossible in the dictionary. I just choose not to use it in every day life. Why??? Because it gives me the excuse to never try.
