Something "catchy"...

Every year, I find some sort of "catchy" phrase that I use throughout the year...

Shine in 2009... Thin in 2010...

I was having trouble thinking of something that rhymed with 2011...

211 in 2011 kept jumping out. It's not really a catch-phrase, more like a goal weight. I was sure I could think of something better... until this morning.

I am starting over today, using my Isagenix products and cleansing. I weighed in, to assess the holiday damage, and to get a starting point. Again.

My new EatSmart (more about that later) scale says I weigh 311.6. Not good, but better than my pre-surgery weight.

After thinking about it, I think I WILL use 211 in 2011 as my catch-phrase/goal this year. That's a 100 lb weight loss. Which is doable... less than 10 lbs per month. I can do this, I know I can. 211 lbs will put me even lower than my pre-baby weight in 2005 (239), which has been my goal for a while.

I can do this, and I'm ready. No time like the present.

I like it!! :) At this point, mine would be Sanity in 2011. Doesn't rhyme. Not catchy. But totally where I am. Hope you're recovering well!

At the risk of sounding like a creepers, I started reading your blog on Thanksgiving from the beginning up to now and I am SO glad I did! You motivated me to face up to the truth and get serious.

Thanks Hollie :-)

I started using Roca labs but it didn't work out. Maybe if you will do a natural work-out you will not waste your money from it.
