Enjoying my New Lifestyle

Please note, I am eating healthier, keeping my portions smaller and losing weight. You can see daily updates on the right side of the page and my weight loss progress at the bottom of this blog. We are working on another video, but are both really busy with work and every day life, so it's taking a little longer than expected. I am also working on a separate page, which will include healthy homemade recipes that I've been cooking and preparing over the last few months.

In the meantime, check out these websites I've come across recently and the websites listed on the right side of this page, as well:
  • I'm strongly considering joining OverEaters Anonymous, but shhh...please keep it between you and me as it's anonymous.
  • There has been alot of talk about plastic water bottles not being environmentally friendly lately, so I started researching alternative solutions. Check out this site for a water bottle made from PLANTS: Primo Water

Moving right along...

Sorry for the delay in posting my next video, but we have been working on a new one that takes a little more work to complete.  Please check back over the next couple of weeks, because we will have a video posted soon...

In the meantime, check out a few updates on the right side of the page and here's a video of me about 15 years ago.  My friend, Denise, is actually singing the song.  I like looking at this video to inspire me to be thin again.  Believe it or not...I actually thought I was fat.  

I've been moving right along, although I haven't lost any significant weight in the last few weeks, due to a busy schedule and being sick, which has led me to a few fast food places.  The good news is...I haven't gained weight, so it's not too bad.  In the last week, I've been bringing my lunch to work and cooking healthy homemade meals every night, so I'm getting back on track. 

I've read and been told by many to join a class or team, so you feel obligated to go to the scheduled class and hopefully enjoy the class or team you've joined.  So I listened and joined a Zumba class (a form of Latin dance) at the local Community Center.  I'm really looking forward to the class beginning in about 2 weeks.  

I also received my first subscription of CleanEatingMag
and love it!!  I highly recommend taking a look at the website to get an idea of what it's all about.

My friend asked me to join a 6.25 mile walk starting in Vasona Park (right next door to where I live) for March for Babies on April 26th.  March for Babies is a non-profit organization, which helps new born babies live a healthy life.  

See this video for more details:

Also, check out this website and my sponsor widget on the right hand side of this page to donate to this wonderful cause:

Here are a few other websites, which I found helpful and thought you may too:

Keep coming works ;)

My journey has begun...

So far, this has been quite an endeavor. I just want to say, "Thank You" for all of the advice, comments and tips and I'll try to reply to them all over the next couple of weeks. I've listed a few recommended sites off to the right-hand side of this page from my friends and please be sure and check them out.

I downloaded the Audiobook, "You: On a Diet" and listen to it on my iPod at work and before I go to bed. It's very motivational :) Also, another friend sent me this site: and I'm definitely going to subscribe. It's a great site and appears to be following the exact plan I'm on right now. Be sure and check out my Weight Loss Ticker at the bottom of this site too. I'll be updating it weekly.

Dave and I are planning another video, which will most likely be posted the weekend after Valentine's Day (maybe earlier)!
We are also working on a Podcast discussing different subjects, as they relate to Natural Weight Loss, so please...stay tuned!

First Video for

My goal is to post new videos bi-weekly. I just returned from Cabo last night, but my husband and I recorded this last week, before I left.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) Mexican food did not agree with my stomach, so I'm sure I've lost some weight since last week, but not the healthy way. So, today...I begin my quest to get healthy and fit in 2008.

Check out my first video and please add comments below, as I would love for this to become a community oriented site:

We are also working on an Audio Blogcast with all the latest updates, debates, ideas, short comings, successes and responses to comments, which will be posted on this site.
