It’s been a long journey, but it’s almost over. Maintaining a gluten-free diet for the past two years has really made a difference. I cannot say enough about green juice. My juicer once sat in the back of a cabinet gathering dust; and now it has a permanent home on my kitchen counter. 3 months ago
I joined a knitting group to force myself to set aside time to knit. Once a week I meet up with the group for two to three hours. I’ve started making a headband style ear-warmer for the winter. It’s also great to see knitters for every level and have them share their stories. It is encouraging to hear the other knitters talk about their early experiences. It reminds me that even the most skilled knitters had to start somewhere. 6 months ago
I have been with my partner for over ten years. When we first started dating, I thought it would be me and him against the world. In the spirit of compromise, I put my hobbies on the back-burner; until I was no longer doing things that once gave me joy.
It took me a long time to figure out, it is a lot to ask one person to make you happy all the time. There is nothing wrong with having multiple outlets for your interests. 7 months ago
I’ve lost twenty-five pounds. As a reward, I tried on clothes in my closet that I haven’t worn in years or still had the tags on them. It gave me the determination to keep going. 13 months ago

I’m not able to do all the positions just yet. My hamstrings are very tight. Most studios have a policy that you have to attempt all the postures to get credit for the challenge. 20 months ago
Today is day one of a fourteen day fast. I’ve mentally prepared myself for this by looking toward to the end results: being closer to my goal, finally being able to wear clothes with the tags still on them and all around feeling better. I hope to lose at least ten pounds on the fast.

Today is the culmination of a ten day juice fast. It was easier than I thought, though there were some rough patches. I’m seven pounds lighter and I feel great. I want to incorporate juicing into my regular diet. I was thinking either 1) juice for breakfast every morning. 2) Juice one day a week. 23 months ago
I’m five days into my ten day fast. It is going well. I don’t feel hungry or weak and I lost four pounds. 23 months ago
About to start a ten day juice fast. I’ve tried all other conventional methods of weight lost and have lost four pounds in two years. I’ve weighted and measured my meals, counted calories; I’ve given up soda, gluten, dairy, sugar and eggs. My exercise regimens have ranged from pilates, circuit training, yoga, weights, walking, and cardio. I feel I need to restart my body. 23 months ago
I dress up for myself. When I only dressed up for special occasions, it was too much pressure and very daunting. I would over do it.
It does not matter if your wearing a thousand dollars in clothing and jewelry; if you are not confident it will show.
How I did it: I had come back from vacation and when I started to go through the photos I had taken, I don't like the way I looked. I looked frumpy. I wanted to do something about, but I was not confident in what to purchase.
Through mostly trial and error, I learned what looked best on me. I got rid of the clothes that were ill-fitting or out dated. Read how I did it… 23 months ago
I’ve been attending Birkam yoga classes for the past month. The moving mediation was very soothing and relaxing for me. 2 years ago
