It's 1.1.19 and I'm making a commitment to lose the weight, again.
I'm heavier and less fit than ever and need to make a change just to continue working and hiking. My sugar addition is slowly killing me, therefor I'm starting by giving up sugar, again.

Today, 1.1.18 I am starting over again. My first mission is to eliminate sugar. That takes away most of my favorite goodies and forces me to eat healthier things.

In 2017 I continued to eat too much junk....I gained back all that I lost in 2016 and 5 more.

In 2016 I lost 40 pounds by 9.1.16. Then I celebrated with some of the goodies that I hadn't had for eight months. I tried to stop but kept on eating those goodies. I gained back so much that my total for the year was just 23.5 pounds.

January 1, 2016 I started making the effort to lose weight again! I am staying away from sugar and flour almost completely. That eliminates most of the things that I love to pig out on and forces me to eat much healthier.
It seems that as soon as I stopped having sugar and flour I stopped having the insatiable cravings for cookies, candy, ice cream

My hubby got me a Fitbit for Christmas 2015. It is motivating me to walk more everyday. I am determined to beat my step goal everyday!

In 2016 I will weigh in EVERY Wednesday.
I will try to lose every week. It's OK when I don't!

I am enjoying hiking most Weekends with my hubby. We are doing about 2- 8 miles each time. We have explored some amazing places!

I have a chronic bladder condition that sometimes limits my activities. I will not let it stop me!

Veggies have become a much bigger part of my diet and hubby, who does most of our cooking, is on board with this change. He has perfected a yummy garlicky veggie mix that we have most nights with dinner and I have in my lunch the next day. Now I am mixing them in with scrambled eggs too.
