Following Kim's advice...

And I'm going to have my own Healthy Thinking Thursday!  My goals are to stay between 1200 - 1300 calories for the day, walk 1 mile while I'm at work, and do at least 30 minutes of weight training when I get home.  I'm going to try and avoid any sodas and drink lots of water as well.

My inspiration photo for the day is from a few years ago.  This is one of those "if I knew then what I know now" kind of pictures...!  The weird ear that you see on the right-hand side belongs to a friend of mine that I cropped out of the picture - lol ;)

I'm doing it too! I want to go down about 20-3- lbs. I'll know when I'm where I want to be. I started last week. I've done great until last night. I ate pizza at church!

I wish you much luck in your weight loss efforts. I don't know if you've seen my posts on clean eating, but it might be something you'd be interested in. I've been clean eating for almost six weeks now and I feel better than ever with so much energy! The book I'm following is 'The Clean Eating Diet' by Tosca Reno (not really a diet, more like a lifestyle) and I also love 'Clean Eating' magazine. It's full of wonderful inspiration and tips and also has a two week menu plan in each issue, which is what I've been following . . . it's a no-brainer! LOL!

I love your new blog look and will come back later so I can spend more time going through your posts . . . right now the birds are bellowing to be let out! LOL!

Thank you so much for the award! While I don't post awards on my blog anymore, I truly appreciate your thoughtfulness!

BTW, you're beautiful no matter what your weight . . . but you'll feel so much better just getting into a healthy lifestyle.

Hugs,
Teresa
