Here we go again...

So folks, I'm ready to embark on the weight loss journey once again. 
Last year, I did the Nutri System program and lost nearly 30lbs with the program.  I went off the program this past September when I was planning a trip that would make it not possible to eat the plan food and I didn't want to spend money on something I wasn't going to be using. 
Then, 2 weeks after returning from my trip...I was in a car accident.  To consider that accident life changing would be an understatement.  It changed me, not only physically but also emotionally and spiritually.  It re-defined life for me.  I went with the mantra of, "Life is short", so why not indulge in the things about life that I enjoy...Well, that includes food.  So, I have now put back on every single pound that I lost.  But, I am no longer in the post-accident haze of indulgence and am in a post accident swing of realizing that, "Yes, life is short".  Why waste it by being unhealthy, without energy and yes...unhappy? 

So, just moments ago...I re-joined the Nutri System family.  It worked well for me before and I have no reason to believe that it won't work again.  I also just purchased Tony Horton's 10 minute trainer.  He is the maker of the P90x and insanity workouts.  While we have P90x and I know it would work...It's just not for me.  So, I will throw myself into the 10 minute trainer workouts that are specially designed and "stacked" to include a fully body workout in only 10 minutes.  I will also continue to go on frequent walks with my dog and once I start dropping some weight, I will begin the "Couch to 5k" trainer program as well. 

I can and WILL make this work for me...
I will take before and after pictures so once my journey is done you can see how far I'll have come. 
I'll post on here as frequently as possible about my journey...The ups, the downs, the achievements and disappointments (hopefully not too many of those...). 

Stay tuned...A new me is on the way.
