A New Me!

I have been battling my weight and some health problems for quite a few years. The weight was really not a reason for the health problems, but it did make it worse. I've tried reading all the books...tried diet pills once...but could never get it all together..either I exercised like a crazy women or I did really well at eating a balanced diet, but not both at the same time. I've lost the same 10lbs multi times!

Finally decided it was time to get serious and make myself a priority.
I've taken care of my Dad the last few years, but with his passing this last January I don't have that pressure.
I've been babysitting 3 grandchildren under age 5 off and on for 3 years...that's done too.

I hired a Nutritionist/Personal trainer, who has also been a friend for the last 13 years.

We have a plan...workouts...eating style!

I start tomorrow:

Daily food/exercise journal
Eating every 2-3 hours for 3 meals & 2 snacks
Workout each day

I've included some photos (since I'm a visual person) on this post of what I think healthy and beautiful looks like for a women.

Health and happiness, here I come!

Good luck with that! Glad to see you are getting serious. I have weight/fitness issues too and it is uppermost in my mind at the moment. I will take inspiration from you!
