About 8 years ago, I lost 45 pounds. I needed to lose 45 pounds. I worked out 2-3 hours a day. I cut out sugar and flour and anything fried and felt like I was starving most of the time. But I lost 45 pounds.
I’ve since gained that 45 pounds back. Plus a few *cough* more.
Revolution #2. Stop talking about it and Just Do It (thank you, Nike…) I don’t have the time to work out 2-3 hours a day anymore. I can, however, cut out sugar and flour and everything fried. Oh, and the wine. Time to cut out the wine.
So, come January 1 (no…this is not a New Year resolution), I will tackle the beast; jump on board; get on it; Just Do It. I have more resources than Carter has Liver Pills. I love that expression…my mom always used it. I would imagine she learned it from her mom, or maybe Aunt Flo. Sounds like something Aunt Flo would say. One day I looked up Carter’s Liver Pills. And…you’re welcome.
I do have more resources than I can count. My poor family, they don’t know what’s coming. I’ve been doing tons of clean eating research. I have Made to Crave next to my bedside and I am ready to dig in with highlighter and pens. Healthy cook books, exercise dvd’s, my treadmill, my workout buddy, Annette, and weights…all at the ready.
None of which really matters. (Except you, Annette…I think you are my best hope for actually doing this!)
I don’t have an actual time frame/weight loss schedule. My goal, really, is to eat more healthy, eat more cleanly, get stronger. I’m hoping the whole lose weight thing will just tag along for the ride.
Love you guys. See y’all soon.

You are motivational. I need that. I can do this too.
Girl, I have “Made to Crave” at the ready myself. Time for me to stop making excuses and dive into the life that God has planned for me…and I do believe that part of that is for me to have a healthier body and lifestyle. You go, girl! You are not alone in this!!
Glad to have you BOTH aboard! Let's do this!
Can I join?
