At goal and setting new ones!

Been maintaining for a while, but ready to work towards a new goal. Always learning and working towards a healthier me!


Almost to goal update

I've been 5 lbs from my goal weight for a while, but have accomplished so much! The biggest things that have helped me to get this far is eating the best that I can, tracking everything, and daily walking.
Here to lose weight to feel better about myself and be healthy. Been down this road before and really don't want to do it again so I am working very hard to make better choices when it comes to food and exercise.

My Major Motivation Points:
Personal Appearance: I want to:
�Wear a swim suit on the beach (and look good in it!)
�Firm up what I have
�Keep my thighs from rubbing
�Look better naked!
�Have my clothes fit better

Health & Fitness: I want to:
�Live longer
�Have more energy
�Climb stairs without being winded
�Not feel/get sick all the time
�Feel and be stronger

Friends, Family and Social Life: I want to:
�Play and be active with my kids
�Stick around to see my grandkids grow up
�Do more active things with my spouse/siginicant other

Everyday Signs and Situations: I want to:
�Be more confident in myself, with better self esteem
�Prove to myself that I can do it.

    Have you been able to get your numbers back to normal with your food plan and exercise? That is my biggest concern...bringing those crazy numbers down and put this thing in remission!
