Day Five, Year Two

Well I'm trying to follow my new Isagenix system to a 'T'. But separating my food and eating habits from my life is difficult. It is amazing how much we celebrate food. Social gatherings, birthdays, holidays all center around food. Tons of BBQs, picnics and potlucks. I don't think I ever really get invited to do too much that doesn't center around food. Leads me to believe we need to invite people to play at the park, camp or hike more often. Focus on inviting people to active, healthy activities, instead of hotdogs and hamburgers.

Good news is, even with straying a few times, I've already lost 4lb... IN 5 DAYS! And I feel good, lighter, more energy. I haven't even felt like taking a nap in the afternoon. It's been stellar. Today I have an uber-busy day and I'm hoping to get in a light work out. But I'm also doing my first cleanse, we'll see how it goes.

Thanks Peeps and Good Luck!

Day One - Year Two

I spent the last year sweating and watching what I eat. Working out 4-7 times a week, sometimes twice a day. I've gone from 225lb size 18 down to 175lb size 12, in the last couple of weeks I quit smoking and gained back 15 lb and now a size 14.

Today I started my Isagenix program today. I'm hoping that it will help push through the last 25-30lb that I have been fighting with for the last 5 months. The hardest part is the first 30 days. My very first full body cleanse. All the toxins will be flushed from my system making my body able to flush the fat instead of storing it to protect itself.

I am also participating in the 2009-2010 weight loss challenge. See what I can take off in the next year and keep off. I would love for you to join me. It would be great to have more accountability buddies.

So here is where I start:

Arms: 14 in
Chest: 44 in
Waist: 39 in
Hips: 43 in
Thighs 27 in

Total Inches: 167
Weight: 188

Total Weight Loss to date 37lb

Every Day is a New Day,
