AggieTerr's Journey to Fitness

I am 45, married, and have battled my weight since I was 5 years old. My goal is not so much to 'get skinny' , but to get healthy. I need to get off the yo-yo express of gaining/losing. My biggest problem, as I see it, is that I get busy during the day and don't eat at all, or pick at an unhealthy choice, then, when I get home from work in the evening, I am starving and binge. I am also a emotional eater. A dear friend introduced me to SparkPeople -- what a great place!

Wow! ...

Wow! 4 years ago today I joined SparkPeople. What a great decision that was --I got to my 7th grade weight and fit into my prom dress and have finally been able to maintain my weight and get off the yo-yo. Now I am ready to venture into unknown territory.

Hi! I noticed your weight tracker on the Living Low Carb message boards and was amazed that you started out about where I am and have almost reached your goal weight. It motivated me so I thought I would add you as a friend. :)

Hello Weekly Challenge: Breakfast participants,

Iíve had some great responses to some of your breakfast ideas. Please stop by and update your post with any additional healthy breakfast ideas you have.
I came across this one and will be trying it soon:

Cranberry Muesli:

Ĺ C low-fat plain yogurt (Iíll be using Greek)
Ĺ c unsweetened or fruit juice sweetened cranberry juice (how about pomegranate, blueberry or even tart cherry juice?)
6 Tbls old fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking or steel cut)
2 Tbls dried cranberries (or there are many other possibilities here as well)
1 Tbls unsalted sunflower seeds (I will be using dry toasted almonds)
1 Tbls wheat germ (how about flaxseed?)
2 tsp honey
ľ tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt

Combine yogurt, juice, oats, dried fruit, seeds, wheat germ, honey, vanilla and salt in a medium bowl; cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours and up to 1 day.

This recipe looked good and the different possibilities are endless.
Have a wonderful and healthy rest of your week!
