My name is Emily, but my family and friends call me Ema.  Ema is a nickname I got in college, it stuck and I love it.  I'm a wife, dog/cat mom, sister, daughter, aunt and friend.

I am on a mission to improve my health habits.  I am trying to make permanent changes in my life that will result in weight loss.  I have finally reached a point where I don't consider myself "on a diet".  I am making better choices and watching how they result in great changes.  I have seen it work before.  The hurdle I am conquering now is making the habits stick.

I know what the habits should be, I've lost 75 pounds before.  However, over the past few years I have gained about 52 of them back.  I admit that and I am no longer going to cry and eat about it...I am going to do something!  I re-joined weight watchers and I am tracking all my food.

Luckily the one habit that has stuck over the past 4 years of my journey is exercise.  Now to tackle the boredom, emotional and snacky eating habits!  I don't see certain foods as forbidden and I think of the word diet as what I eat daily and not what I am restricting myself to right now.  I am on a quest to make good decisions and watch them change me into the person I want to be.

I love to cook and be creative in the kitchen.  I see recipes as idea suggestions more than directions to follow.  I don't think I have ever followed one exactly unless I have been baking.

I hope you find some fun things here and possibly an idea or two.  If you have comments, questions or feedback please let me know!

Thanks for stopping by.
