Hi,

My life was out of control and it seemed easier just to coast along than to change anything. I turned 40 this year and finally realized it was time to stop living life in limbo. I made a really tough decision to break up with my long term boyfreind and cleared up some financial matters that had been stressing me out for a long time. Now that I have shed most of the emotional "weight" it's time to shed the physical and become healthy all around!

I'm on my way and even if I have some bad days I'm not going to give up!

My Goals:
The last time I can actually remember being below 170 I was about 25 so when I get to 169 I will be ecstatic!

My goal is to try to lose 2lbs per week.

My Program:
I don't have consistent exericse days but try to fit it in an average of 4 days per week. Mostly I do various videos at home and sometimes go for fast paced walks - I might try working in some running intervals soon.

For my diet I just try to stay within my calorie range and limit the amount of processed food that I eat. I used to eat fast food a minimum of twice a week but with eating more cleanly I don't crave it anymore.

Personal Information:
I live in Victoria, BC

Hey girl, thanks for your support!

I'm still struggling with how much to tell Chris. I'm increasingly mentioning how I'm working on improving my fitness and trying to eat healthy. But, I haven't come right out and said that I've lost a significant amount of weight, or that I'm really working on still losing. Since he had listed "overweight" as a "can't stand" on his eharmony profile, I'm honestly still scared about how much to reveal. But, certainly, ,the longer we're together, the more reasonable it seems that I should be able to share my "real self" including my struggles. I think I'll continue slowly opening up - hopefully it'll continue to happen naturally, rather than as some shocking big revelation!

Hey, first walk/run, eh?? Good for you!! Is that a C25K walk/run?

I, too, struggled over the holidays! And I'm still trying to get away from the treats that crept into my diet over vacation. This month (since my bday was in January, prolonging the "holidays") I've been working on transitioning. So, instead of shooting for 1200-1400 (which was a 2lb/week weight loss rate, back when I was managing it), I've been following my sparkrange (1340-1690), allowing myself to eat at the higher end if necessary. That range allows me to still eat "treats" (like today, I had FIVE dove chocolates, 200 calories! eeks!).

Deciding to shoot for a higher caloric goal is letting me not feel guilty about little splurges, which is giving me motivation to keep tracking rather than feel guilty and give up. That, in turn, helps me keep the indulgences "little" rather than letting them spiral out of control! (If I feel like I've "really blown it" then it's hard for me to even make myself track! And that just leads to bad places!). Also, I'm telling myself that my plan all along was to lose more slowly as I got closer to goal. The 160s are a little sooner than I had been hoping to switch to slower loss, but heck - if it's all I can manage this month (or this year!), then I'm going to take my 1lb/week and hope I can keep running with it!
