Taking a Stand

Here I go! I'm about to lose it. No, no; it's a good thing. I want to lose 50 pounds by the time I turn 50. That's a little over a year, February 17, 2011. I've told some ladies at church, some friends at work and home, some of my family, and some of my demo friends. Now I'm telling you.

How am I going to do it? I will confess I don't know exactly. It won't be shots or shakes. I applaud those of you who can make that work, but that's not for me. It will be sensible and slow. It will be vegetables and lean meat. I know myself well enough to know that's the only way to go for me. I also know I won't eat after 8 p.m.

Baby steps.

I'm going to go ride my bike now. I promised Jacque that I'd do that for at least 15 minutes a day while I try to decide what other exercise I can do.

Wanted to put this out to the universe and garner your support, recipes and great ideas.

Go me, take state!


  1. Go Bonnie!! You had us in stitches at the Perth Regional this year - can't wait to see you 50lbs lighter next year! Good luck with your journey - and remember exercise is the key. It doesn't have to be heavy - walking, swimming, biking - but it does have to be consistent!

  2. Yay Bonnie I'm proud of you!! And you are inspiring me...must consider my own goal. But for now definitely TAKE STATE! :)


  3. Bonnie! You KNOW I'm behind you 100%! You can do it - and what a fab idea to have a community of online friends to help! xo Lynsay

  4. 49! You don't look a day over 21 :) Good for you Bonnie....So proud of you my friend. xx
