Blog Hop post

Welcome to my tour. Here are the questions I was asked to answer. Because I am limited to the account of time my foot can handle at the computer, this will be short and sweet.

1~Post a before picture.

2~Post your most current after picture. Actually I have lost 15 more pounds since this photo.

3~State the amount of weight you've lost. 50 pounds.

4~If you are on a specific eating/exercise plan, what is it? I am doing WW. And I ride the exercise bike everyday most of the time for at least 45 minutes.

5~What is your favorite healthy snack? (share a pic if you have one) Skinny cow ice cream sandwiches.

6~What is the biggest life lesson you’ve learned on your journey? If I set my mind to something I can do it.

7~What is the biggest strength you’ve discovered about yourself? I have a will power. And I am not addicted to food.

8~What has been your toughest struggle? The number on the scales. And not being able to walk/run because of my MS.

9~Who has been your biggest supporter and why? My husband who always is so willing to fix my meals and reminds me that I need to eat.

10~When you get to goal, what will you do next? Hopefully I will have learned that I can eat like this forever and I wont have to track everyday. Go on a trip as a reward to celebrate my victory. I think we are going to Hawaii.

11~What do you wish someone had told you when you first began? That I would be required to eat even if I wasn't hungry.

12~Share any other words of wisdom you want to share. Sometimes even if you think you have done everything right the weight will not show on the scales but will in your clothes.

13. MOST IMPORTANT: At the end of your post, link to Karen from .
