I have been gone for a year and a half. I gave up. I let myself get overwhelmed with life and the things it can throw at all of us. And I have realized that I can let it keep going this way or stop. So, I am stopping. I can't control others so I am going to at least set some goals for myself and see what follows. And try and stay on top of the things I might be able to steer in a better direction. Good luck to everyone for 2012!

My Program:
Currently on 1,200 cal a day, 30 g carbs per meal. Walk 2x a day for 20 min. on a good day! Trying to follow a combination of superfoods, healthy, clean eating, green smoothies and raw. No specific "diet". With room for wiggle. So I don't feel guilty when I do "fudge". I'm a Flexitarian!

Personal Information:
Have 2 boys, 19 and 22. The 22 year old is now married so I have a daughter in law, 22. And, I am going to have a grandson on July 23. Been married for 22 1/2 years, have 3 dogs and a cat on 5 acres. I'm getting tired. I want to live in an all white condo. With flower pots!

Other Information:
"May there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us."
