Did you notice the new image to the right? Move More, Eat Well. It is an online class - I have never taken one before! I embarked upon the task of losing 70 pounds two years ago and did a good job of losing it. That was my first goal with another 10 pounds to go in the back of my mind. Technically I was good at the top part of my weight range because that gives me a BMI of less than 25. However I wanted to be in the middle of my weight range to look a little better in a bathing suit since I am in one for 4 months of the year. I have only been at the bottom of my weight range when I was much younger and actually was very ill and didnt know it and that is why I managed to be so thin! That is another conversation I will spare you :) Anyway I "know it all" when it comes to eating, food, diet and exercise. I have lost 50 pounds or more at least 6 times, worked for weight watchers for several years and I read articles every single day about all of the above. I can say this much, yoyo dieting does make it tricky to lose weight. That is why I want to break the cycle, stay fit and eat well. I have done that for the most part but I am finding a few pounds creeping back on so I must stop it now. The funny thing is I saw this on another blog, looked into it and because it is scrapbooking related decided it would be a good way to keep this front and center in my life this year. I watched her video and other than smoking (never have) we have the same story becoming a runner and all! So I ordered my notebook and page protectors, printed out the first steps and am really looking forward to this adventure. All except the measuring part :) (She did say this was optional!) The picture of the shoes is the first thing she had us do - take a picture of our exercise shoes. Why 4? Well three are the shoes I have worn out running and the other are my Zumba shoes so that's what I wanted in my notebook. I might share a bit of it here and there but for the most part, back to card making. Thanks for reading my little story! May you Move More and Eat Well this year.
