Shrinking Otter

Hi! I lost 65 pounds on Weight Watchers about 5 years ago, but have gained most of it back. So I'm back at SparkPeople trying to get back to where I was -- and then continue losing because I have a really long road to travel. I'm tweaking my strategies, too.

My Goals:
I have lots of weight to lose. I didn't gain it overnight and I won't lose it overnight. My main goals are to "regain control", get healthier, more fit, to feel more energetic and self-confident. I want to reduce the stress and wear & tear on my body, particularly my knees and feet. I'm confident that weight loss will effect some positive changes in other areas of my health as well. I'm trying to work with a short term weight loss goal by Thanksgiving. After that, I'll set a new short term goal, etc. I am re-thinking how aggressive my goals have typically been, and how I've failed to achieve them. I need to be realistic, but I need to move forward!

My Program:
I have to get back to committing to track my food, and continue to get to the gym 3-4 times per week.

Personal Information:
I live in rural Connecticut.

Wow! You have still lost a lot of weight and that last 15 # can be a bump to some people. There are some that are afraid of succeeding and try to hide behind the fat with excuses. I don't see that happening to you. YOU WILL SUCCEED! emoticon emoticon

You are really getting around here pretty good these days... Too bad you're not into blogging. I have that problem too. It looks as if you are almost at your goal. Wow! I hope you don't forget about us.... emoticon emoticon

Hi. Thanks for your comments. All the best to you with Spark. I too like the calorie and nutrient checking as I log in to record meals. It makes it easier for me to watch my sugar intake and cholesterol amounts. Hope it goes well with your program and it motivates you. WE CAN DO IT and we are worth it.
God bless.

Hi, just wanted to thank you. I see you lost with WW too and regained. I can relate to that. Been to WW several times over the years. Lost 25# one time and 40 another, than seem to lose motivation. Gained weight back and now am trying something new. Hoping I do better and tracking seems to be a must for me. Have a beautiful weekend.
