A New Year and a New Journey.

I had big dreams for the past number of years of just losing one little measly pound.  Success?  Not really.

At my last TOPS weigh-in in December I was 247.2 pounds.  Another year, irretrievably gone, and no success in this area of my life.  It is damn frustrating.  But, it is also my responsibility.  I can pass the blame to no-one.  I made the choices I made, putting other things ahead of my health, and this is the reality I bring to 2015!

Because I went into Christmas knowing that number, and wanting to lose weight over the holidays, I did make some decisions that were helpful to me.  I actually missed a few eggnog lattes (and retained my Christmas spirit), didn’t overeat too often, and even managed a few visits to the gym.

I did do a lot of geo-caching in the fall and winter, so I will end this first post of the next phase of my journey with a photo of one of them!

About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking!
