I Don't Feel Like "The Fat Girl" Anymore

This past spring I created a new user name and a new Spark People account; I'm starting over with the goal of getting healthier and more fit. I've been on a couple of "successful" diets before (losing 65 and later 40 pounds) but haven't been able to keep it off. I'm not "dieting" this time; I AM tracking my food and making more healthful choices. I'm making slower, smaller changes with the intent to keep it off, and it really does feel very different this time around. I am also fortunate to ...
This past spring I created a new user name and a new Spark People account; I'm starting over with the goal of getting healthier and more fit. I've been on a couple of "successful" diets before (losing 65 and later 40 pounds) but haven't been able to keep it off. I'm not "dieting" this time; I AM tracking my food and making more healthful choices. I'm making slower, smaller changes with the intent to keep it off, and it really does feel very different this time around. I am also fortunate to have a WONDERFUL OB/Gyn who's following my progress; I couldn't wish for a better mentor for accountability and non-judgmental goal setting.

Fitness Minutes: 7,817

My Goals:
Ultimately I'd like to lose about 100 lbs, but my goal right now is (was) to go from 266 to 250 per my OB/Gyn. [edit: done! goal 220 by my 2nd f/u--done!; next stop: ONEderland--done!; goal 185 by next f/u!]
I want to be healthier, to fit comfortably into seats in theaters, roller coasters and airplanes, and never have to worry that I'll need a seat belt extender. I want to shop for clothing in the Ladies' section. I want to order clothes and bathing suits online. I want to participate in things WITH my family, not near them. I want to make my family proud.

My Program:
This is important: **I eat whatever I want, I just budget the quantity and calories.**
I track my foods religiously while allowing myself occasional off-plan indulgences. We plan ahead and shop ahead whenever possible.
I target total calories over everything else, and try to stay balanced (50%Carb / 30%Fat / 20%Protein). I eat out a LOT but with planning I stay on track.
I go to the gym 5d/w for a short 30-min elliptical, rowing or treadmill workout and do 10 mins of strength work 2-3 d/w.

Personal Information:
I'm from the Virginia Beach area currently living in Phoenix, AZ. I've been happily married for almost 23 years and we have a wonderful, studious, articulate, polite, empathetic and all-around-terrific teenaged girl (yes, really!)

Other Information:
My favorite quote has always been "Stupidity Should Be Painful", but I've coined a new one all my own to live by: "I can't get there from anywhere but here".
My newest one: "Failure is a bruise, not a tattoo." ~Timber Hawkeye (Buddhist Bootcamp)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
You have accomplished a lot since joining SP! emoticon
I sometimes go to bed early to avoid the temptation to eat at night. My greatest challenge is eating after 7pm. One bite of even good stuff sets me off. The battle for me is definitely more in my mind than anything else...
Tracking and planning are part of the solution!
