Spring Into A Slimmer Summer

Welcome Spring!! Looking forward to summer! I am ready for change. I keep failing at reaching my weight loss goals, but plan to change that this spring and summer!

Hi. I'm Melissa. I am blind, but don't let that little inconvenience bother me, well not too much at least! I am ready for the Spring 5% challenge and the BLC 25 so I can get help reaching those important goals that will get me to that slimmer summer!

My Goals:
My goal for my Spring 5% Weight Loss Challenge is to lose 9 pounds in 8 weeks. With BLC 25 I plan to lose 12 pounds over the 12 weeks. This should not be a problem, but it has been for me time and time again. I have new plans and strategies this time!

My Program:
I am going to employ cognitive therapy techniques to help myself think myself thin. I do believe that changing the way you think will change the way you feel and act. I am going to use cognitive behavioral techniques as outlined by Judith Beck. I also will:
*Get my 8 cups of water in daily
*Go to Curves 3X/Week unless I change gyms and then I will go to the gym 3X/week
*Get my 5 veggies in daily plus 2 fruits
*Keep within my calorie range
*Truly employ the techniques I learn from Judith Beck


Personal Information:
I am totally blind as a result of Type 1 Diabetes and living the wild life in my younger days! I celebrated 44 years of being diabetic this May. I live in lovely South VA and have a wonderful husband and anew puppy named Sassy. She is a handful, but I know it will all be worth it!

Other Information:
I love reading and especially enjoy psychological thrillers, mysteries, stories featuring dogs and the occasional occult novel like Stephen King or Dean Koontz. I was an avid belly dancer, but have only recently started to dance again since my mother's death! I enjoy water! I love swimming, water aerobics, water jogging and more! I walk a mile with leslie Samsone everyday and sometimes more. I actually enjoy exercising! I love summer and am and anxiously awaiting its return!! But, I can do my water aerobics and aqua Zumba at the Y! I also try to make it to Curves at least 3 times a week and do the Curves Smart program which pushes me to improve my workout each time! Plus I am an avid follower of Jessica Smith's video workouts!

Melissa - I just love your dog pictures. I have 2 grand dogs that live upstairs with my daughter and her husband. I certainly understand your comment about the work involved in a new puppy. Our one and a half year old Golden is just starting to calm down and act responsibly.

Thanks for stopping by my page to read my blogs. I was looking at your pictures, it looks like you have a couple of special friends at your house too (the four legged kind). I like Jack, the lap dog. I don't think dogs have any concept of size, I once had a German Shepherd that thought he was a lap dog too. Ours now are pretty little but think they're as big as anybody. Today we went to a dog park and ended up in the big dog area instead of the little dog area because there weren't any other little dogs there for them to play with. They sure didn't care that they were the littlest ones there.
