here I am again, 7 months later and still no progress. It has been so hard to get motivated again to be a healthier me!  Seems like I take the proverbial "one step forward- two steps back" so much.  I have days that I am walking over 6000 steps (3 miles) and other days I do good to walk 1000. (I have a nifty app on my Galaxy S4 that measures my footsteps)  My Fitness Pal reminds me every day that I have not entered my breakfast... or my lunch.. or my dinner! 

But in spite of all of this, deep down, I still recognize the need to live a healthier lifestyle. I know that the older I get, the harder it has become. I have been reading testimonies by others who have lost weight and are living happier and healthier.  Some testimonies, I know for sure I could never follow. And that is ok. I want to find out what is the best route for me to take and then get on that journey for the rest of my life. 

So maybe if I can write more and share my small steps it may encourage someone else and help me at the same time. 

Enjoy the magnificent colors that will be soon upon us by going on a short hike. That is my plan. Sometime in the next 2-3 weeks.  Pictures will follow. 

God bless and keep you. 

Still Standing


  1. You can do it! Take one day at a time. Smaller portions, healthier choices, plenty of water

  2. So very proud of you. You will be able to do it. Ask God for the right keys for your body specifically. x
