Having been "chubby" all my life and following various diets to lose weight- always gaining it back, I want to quit dieting and be healthy. As an older mom, I am 53 and have two daughters- twelve and seventeen, I want to be around and very mobile not only when my youngest graduates college, but when they both have families. I know mentally that now is almost too late to take control, but I need to lose at least 15 pounds- for now- break it into small goals, and not let food and the scale ...

My Goals:
My first goal is to be healhty. With several of my family members diabetic, I want to lower my risks by eating healthy and live a life long enough to be active with my future grandchildren. Secondly, I want to lose weight, ten pounds at a time.
Thirdly, I want a body that "doesn't jiggle" when I walk (just remembering a haunting comment that a student made to me 40 years ago when I was in elementary school.) Amazing how those things stick with us.


My Program:
Try to avoid sweets and most white flour foods. Exercise walking with friends, and with Insanity. Be consistent with a weight-training program.

Personal Information:
I am 53, married, two daughters, 12 and 16. I am a teacher of high school students- Language Arts. I enjoy art on my free time- a commodity that I find rare- and need to devote more time to developing talents and less time grading papers.

I totally agree with your motivator for losing - being healthy to enjoy good times ahead with your children! That is a big one for me too!

Thanks, I did look up PBIS; I am sure there are ideas there- research the problem areas- that we could use.

I think that doing things like anti bullying in EVERY SINGLE classroom does have an impact. Have you looked into PBIS programs?
