Ready to do it again!!!

OK... I know I can do this. Unfortunately, I really do know I can, because I did it before. I lost 65lbs when I was in college, and kept it off for years. Now, 16 years later, I've allowed 30 of those pounds to creep back on. I am ready to do it again...


UPDATE: I did it again!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I lost those 30 pounds, and then some more! Now I have to practice keeping it off...

My Goals:
To banish blob-ness from my life!

I hope to get into a healthy lifestyle that I can maintain, that doesn't feel restrictive.

My Program:
Well, I put everything I eat onto my nutrition page, to keep myself within my daily calorie/nutritional limits. I am having a hard time keeping my carbs down, and often don't get enough fat and protein. I occasionaly allow myself to go a little over my calorie-limit, and have a couple beers (mmmm, beer)... I am also trying to eat very healthy... all whole grains, lower sodium, with more organic fruits and vegetables. I ate pretty healthy before (being a vegetarian)... volume and sodium were my biggest problems.

I also have been exercising... walking, exercise TV on demand, cardio dvds, using my exercise bike, and using hand weights.

Personal Information:
I'm happily married, and live in cool and historic Salem, MA. I've been a vegetarian for 21 years, and I LOVE animals. We have 4 furry children, 2 cats and 2 dogs... so our house can be a little chaotic.

I enjoy reading, listening to music, and used to be really into art and poetry. I am trying to bring these things back into my life to increase my overall happiness, and increase my mental as well as my physical health.

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my SP page!

To answer your question about the pounds lost graphic and my photo -- I had to do that in Photoshop. If you're not a Photoshop user, you could send me your photo and I could do it for you.

Have a great week!

Hi Debbiejoe,
Thank you so much for leaving a comment on my spark page.
I am so close to goal and have been oscillating back and forth with this winter weather and trying not to catch the virus that has been running through our area. lol!

I really believe once the sun shines again, I'll be getting to that goal. You appear to be right there beside me and I'd say your doing a great job yourself. Sometimes that last lb or two can be tricky but I BELIEVE we can do it! Great Job! emoticon

Wondering where you have been. Hope all is well. Stopping by to tell you I bought myself a mini-trampoline! Thanks for the goodie way back when and the inspiration to get one. emoticon emoticon
