New Year = New Me

OK, I am feeling motivated and ready to get the ball rolling again. Yes, I know, me and every one else in the world, right? There is just something about the beginning of a new year...the possibilities are endless!

What is my plan?

* back on Thrive! I am going to a meeting tomorrow morning. My sister (deathmetalmommy) is also going to join, which is going to help me out a bunch!

* I am going to do the Cave Spring 5k again this year. My goal is to beat my last years time by 15 minutes!

* I am going to start going to the YMCA 3-4 times a week.

* I plan to be down a minimum of 40 pounds by the 5k. I will put a ticker on my blog to show my progress there.

* I have been invited to join a "biggest loser" competition here in Rome. It's a friend of mine and her friends and family...costs $25 a person, lasts 6 months, and the biggest loser gets the pot. I think this will be an amazing boost of motivation!

So I know it's been a long time since I posted, but I'm back. And feeling good. :)

  3. Aww, thanks so much for that! It means more than you can imagine to think that I am motivating someone else.

    I did WW for a long time and had good results...it's a great program! I personally found, for me, that I do better just not having my trigger foods than trying to have them in moderation. Took a lot of years to figure that out, lol!

    Stick around and keep me updated on you! Do you do sparkpeople.com? It's a great site that I have started using...let me know if you do and I'll "friend" you over there. :) Have a great day!
