Lose The Weight
Using Lean Cuisine & Skinny Cow
The beginning of a new year. The goals we make. One of mine is to get healthy this year. I feel yucky! I am way too heavy (heaviest ever) and I am totally out of shape.
I lost 47# in 2008, but I’ve put it all back on, plus about 3 pounds – but it has come back on worse. I don’t know why? Menopause maybe? But I didn’t use to have the fatty arms and my hips and thighs are bigger now, than they were (and that was when I was still even under my previous high weight) Ok…. this is a killer and I hate to admit it, but because my “Lean 11″ are being so brave, I will be too. I am 199.5 # on 1/1/11. I am 5’10” and would like to weigh 145. I actually hit 201.5 about 3 weeks before Christmas, so I’m happy that through the worse of the holiday season I actually lost a little (lol.. I know..it is so sad) and I didn’t gain.
I love the sweets… and I know I have to get off them.
There are a couple things I am going to be doing this year. One is to be working with Lean Cuisine/Skinny Cow through Collective Bias. I am the community leader for the new #31 challenge. There have been 11 bloggers who are going to be documenting their struggles and successes during the month of January. They will be working on a whole lifestyle change. They will be using Lean Cuisine and Skinny Cow products to help them achieve their goals. They will not be eating these food exclusively though.
Even though I am running the group of “Lean 11” and I wouldn’t really have to do it with them…. I want to. I NEED to!! I am real excited about how excited they are. I think we are all motivated to feel better, exercise and eat right.
Here is a list of the Lean 11 and their blog links. (great idea ladies… I’m copying it!)

I have 55 pounds to lose in this next year. Another goal I have is that I want to run. I have never been a runner, I have problems with my feet and I don’t know that I’ll be able to… but I want to try.
You know.. I watch those people on The Biggest Loser. I think to myself, they HAVE to be in pain, they HAVE to have sore feet and bad knees etc… If they can do what they do on that show, then there is no reason that I can’t have the goal to run 1 mile this year.
I wanted to do it before I turned 50, but I didn’t succeed. But that doesn’t mean I have to give up either.
I am also using the Genesis Today products again. I felt so good while I was drinking them last year, and have no excuse as to why I stopped. They are so healthy for you and since my goal is to have a healthy lifestyle …. I will be using those products this year too. (they are not part of the 31 day challenge)
Disclosure: I am being compensated for being the community leader of the Lean Cuisine/Skinny Cow group for Collective Bias. All opinions and the picture (sadly enough) are my own.
