I discovered hiking just before the temps hit permanent triple digits. Way to go, me. :-/





Time lapse, photo #1... 266#; my goal is to ditch 100#





About halfway to goal, almost 50 lbs gone. My MD wanted a before/after (well, during) picture. :-)



I have 10 pics in my gallery

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 ...

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: 6,982

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)

Thank you for the comment on my ID photo -- that kitten truly would win the heart of anyone, wouldn't she? Such a little cutie! Perhaps that is how my cat, Luci, looked when she was a kitten, she is 5 years old now and I have owned her for 2 years. I have never been lucky enough to own a kitten, but maybe some day. lol

emoticon Have a great December! Eve

It would be hard to be in OneDerland for your doctor visit as you have to weigh in with all your clothing on, even shoes!! I would assume you do not have that added weight when you weigh at home. I weigh in at about the same time each morning -- NO CLOTHING WHATSOEVER!

So count on about 206 or so at the doctor's. emoticon
