Here We Go Again

About six years ago, after many years of resisting most popular diet programs on the grounds that I already knew what to do but just hadn't managed to do it yet, I finally decided I needed help and joined Weight Watchers, where I had an excellent experience.  I lost 30 pounds and developed far better eating and exercise habits than I've probably ever had. I met and exceeded my goals and felt fabulous.

You would think after a mountaintop experience like that I'd do everything in my power to hang on to my improved health, but after a couple of years of strict maintenance I gradually began to backslide, and here I am now wanting to drop 20 pounds and overcome a lot of aches, pains, and other physical limitations again.

One of the great lessons of my Weight Watchers experience was to be mindful of the way I think as well as the way I eat and move. This new blog is a way for me to pay more attention to my thinking about health and fitness as I adopt better eating and exercise habits. I invite you to join me on the journey.


  1. Lenora! As you can tell from my two other comments:) Love your new blog adventure! I have been blogging for four years now and taking the time to document my little life has been amazing:) I hope you find that as well.

  2. Thanks so much for your encouragement, Cynthia! So far, I'm finding blogging to be a little intimidating, but I'm definitely enjoying it and think it will be a good thing for me. I really appreciate you taking the time to read and comment and am delighted to hear that blogging has been such a great experience for you!
