Working towards healthier habits

I had Weight-Loss Surgery in 2005 (after reaching my highest weight of 315 lbs), and lost about 140 pounds (down to 175). Unfortunately, I got into some really bad habits and regained about 60 of that. Clearly, I needed to get back on track.

Currently, I have lost about 80 lbs since August 8, 2011. Ultimately, it's been about eating less and exercising more, but the devil is in the details. I write ...

Currently, I have lost about 80 lbs since August 8, 2011. Ultimately, it's been about eating less and exercising more, but the devil is in the details. I write down everything I eat, and track it on sparkpeople most days. I have made exercise a priority, and actually enjoy it now!

Eventually, I want to get down to 155 and have my BMI under 25.

Thank you for the sweet note and spark goodie. Just an update: My mom has a UTI and had to get some antibiotics. They are rescheduling it for next week.

A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.

Whatever is beautiful.
Whatever is meaningful.
Whatever brings you happiness.
May it be yours this weekend
and throughout the coming week.
