wish me luck...






My online class starts tomorrow....it's one I'm taking to help with motivation, but it's creative too...pretty cool huh?

My battle with weight has been a long one. Started in college, got worse after mom died. Thyroid disease doesn't help....nor does depression, or poor self-esteem...
Done just about everything....Weight Watchers (3 or 4 times, maybe), Jenny Craig, High Protein/Low Carb, Vegan, no dairy, Slim Fast, should I go on? Also done Jazzercise, Curves, the gym, videos, walking outside.......just can't seem to stick to anything for longer than a few months.
In 2008 I worked with a Dr.'s program: virtually no carbs, weekly B12 shots, appetite suppressant, etc. and was fairly successful....down 35 lbs. I've kept off 30....and need to lose another 30+....
SOOOOO....here we go again! I love that this class lets me have a creative outlet, inspiration, a support group and motivation all in one....PLUS, I know I'm the most successful when I feel GOOD about me, when I'm loving toward myself, and remember all the positive things about me....and love all of who I am and am becoming.
I'm excited! :)

I hear ya sista! Why is self care so dadgum difficult? Got the t-shirt. I thought about doing this class too, but I'm crazy busy with work this week and then next week I'll be in NYC and The Poconos. So I felt like I'd be too far behind. Does is last for the whole year or just the month? I'll check it out again. --lisa
