Well I have purged my kitchen of unhealthy choices, bought a new pedometer, picked up my Mayo Clinic diet journal and my refrigerator is stocked with fresh pre-measured portions of healthy fruits and vegetables. Tommorrow is day one of the "Lose it" phase which is 14 days long. I have read the book and set my goals, taken my measurements. I had a lot of false starts last year, do good for a week or two and then...fall back into late night snacking and other bad habits. Menopause hit me like a ton of bricks a couple of years after the quitting smoking weight gain and wa-la I find myself 50 lbs over weight and I cannot get out of my own way. The increase of weight is starting to give me joint issues so thats enough of that. Anybody out there want to join me, I love to hear from ya!
