ultimate goal - i don't have an exact final weight in mind, but i know i want to get to at least 25% body fat, and i'm guessing that will put me at 165-175

i'm a 43 year old woman living in seattle. after a lifetime of obesity, i decided to do something about it and lost 125 lbs between june '03 - april '05. since then, i've regained half of that weight and it's time to get my focus back to where it needs to be... a happy and healthy me!

i KNOW that i will achieve my goal of being a healthy weight for my body type!! i LOVE how i feel when i'm eating well and exercising, and i make time to do those things!! it's time to focus on getting so solid with my healthy habits that they truly become second nature. exercise will be something that i just do, not that i have to try to talk myself into. food will be something that i eat solely to nourish my body, not to satisfy an emotional need. these changes that i'm making will be with me for the rest of my life. it's not always going to be easy and i may even have setbacks... but i WILL REACH MY GOAL AND NEVER GIVE UP!!!

I re-commit to my healthy lifestyle today. I believe that I can accept and complete my challenge and reach all goals that I set for myself to the best of my ability.

I realize this is work and accept the self-care price I must pay to achieve my mental and physical transformation.

I commit to keeping a journal that tracks my progress and forgives my slipups.

I will expect and adapt to adversity and see tough times as learning opportunities.

I will strive to take action and not to bitch, moan or whine.

I will be self-assertive and fight for the right to take care of myself.

I will acknowledge and reward myself for my achievements along the way.

and i'm doing all this for very simple reasons...
i love myself, i am beautiful, and most of all, I AM WORTH IT!!

Hey, what you up to? I'm FINALLY losing again, and think I've officially found my spark :-D Hubby has been dieting FINALLY too, and it's helping SOOOOOOO MUCH! I'm down 8 unofficially, 6 officially, and he's down 10 - but I swear, it's amazing what happens when you stop eating everything in sight! :-D Just wondering about you - hope you're still doing well.
