Re-Committing to weight loss/maintenance

I am doing a re-start. I have been slowly gaining weight and weigh more now than I have in several years--I am over 160. This is a number I did NOT want to EVER SEE AGAIN. I don't want to be here--so am going to get serious again. I am doing the 5% Challenge for the Spring--I know that the challenge helps me! It will start March 26 but I am not waiting for it.

My goal for 2016 is a theme--I want to look good and feel better (continuation of 2015) AND I want to be more mindful so will do meditation and maybe yoga. This hasn't been going well so I will also recommit to the meditation--I think it WILL help.

I know I am more toned than I was -- I am in size 10 instead of 14. I am going to get back down to 152. I will try to do no sugar/cookies/baked goods,/candy but that IS really hard for me. It is also hard to have just a little bit--so I need to try "cold turkey". I have stopped with the alcohol, less bread, etc but it has not been helping. We go on vacation Saturday and I will enjoy vacation--and will exercise but I'll have my drink if I want.

I am RE-COMMITTING to my health and well being!!

Member Since: 6/19/2009

SparkPoints: 259,390

Fitness Minutes: 105,201

My Goals:
to get back to 152--or even 145

to look and feel much younger than my years!

to motivate my husband to join me in exercising

My Program:
I am doing a class 5 days a week (2 are focusing on ST). I commit to 7K steps but will work to get 10K if I can.

I am tracking my food and learning more about what to cook and how much! My "diet" is lots of veggies, protein and complex carbs!

Personal Information:
I live in NJ with my hubby of 36 years. I have 3 DDs.

I ran 2 5Ks in 2014--that was my goal and I met it! I don't know if I will try a 5K this year--my knees are getting a bit unhappy when I run.

Other Information:
I skied for a week in Feb with one DD and will see the other two for Easter. I love to read, do a little sewing and will be focusing on going through things to down-size in the next year or 3.
