following: My own diet
performance: losing 0.9 lb a week

Oct 2012- At 42 years old, I find my self starting over. Trying to find out who I really am, who I really want to be, and where I really want to go. I have spent the last 23 years being whatever everyone else needed me to be, never stopping to wonder what I wanted out of life.
I have recently seperated from my husband of 13 years, and am in begining stages of getting a divorce. Prior to that I was married for 10 years. All in all...I have never really been on my own.
For years I have been trying to loose this weight, but was so busy taking care of my family had no time for me. Now that my daughter is almost 19 and my marriage is over, I feel that its time for me. So from this moment on, for the first time in my life I am going to be selfish. Its my time....and I plan to make the most of it!!!
So....wish me luck, here I go!
***UPDATE-OCT 2013 I have survived the divorce and found a wonderful man to spend the rest of my life with...its amazing how differant things can be when you finally find the right person...
Now we are both trying to get healthy, eat better and start exersizing.
I am happier than i have ever been, sold the house, gettting ready to move and start this new chapter of my life...What a differance a year can make!!

My slightly overweight Weiner Dog, Angel. She weighs 20 lbs. I sure love her but glad I am not carrying that around anymore!!!

I usually try for a gallon a day. It is a lot of water, but really flushes you out and keeps you full.
