welcome to the journey

Thanks for stopping by!

I am excited that I weigh 30 pounds less than this time last year. But my habits still need much work... still struggling with eating when I'm not hungry, especially in the evening. It is so important to me that I continue to drop weight, because, for one thing, I am still in the obese category. And it is a dangerous thing to just fluctuate up and down, because it means I am not focused on eating properly. That's how I gained so much weight in the first ...

I am a music teacher that loves to sit at my baby grand piano to play and sing.

I love reading other people's blog and spark pages. They are so inspiring!

My Program:
I started on 9/9/10 with using the nutrition tracker consistently. It helps me plan out what I am eating, and what I need to add or subtract from The Plan. I have seen that I sometimes don't eat enough protein, for example, but the fat grams are never a problem! This has helped tremendously. I also exercise regularly, either walking or doing The Firm DVDs.

Other Information:
All things are possible through Christ who strengthens me.

Thanks for your good wishes!! Open House was great---only half the parents came but the ones who did stayed almost the whole time! It was a long day, though...13 hours on your feet causes back pain and more!

Thanks for your comment on my page!!! You're so sweet! I'm glad you like my blogs- I love writing them. :)

Congrats on the 30# loss so far! that Rocks!! I understand your struggle with the night-snacking, as I think a lot of us do here. A big part of it for me is the "relaxing" in front of the TV I like to do at night after dinner, and THAT'S when I get the munchies. TV watching is VERY much associated with snacking for me. So, maybe when you start getting the itch to munch, but you KNOW you shouldn't and have already tracked and consumed your calorie quota, then get up and brush your teeth. Maybe switch what you're doing to relax-- spend some time on Spark, or reading a book instead of TV. Do some stretching or yoga, or even go for a walk around the block.

I still need to keep practicing these tactics, even in maintenance. It's all too easy to slip into mindlessness when we're "relaxing" and get feeling like eating!!

Have a great week, friend!
Whit

How sweet of you to give me the massage Goodie! It's been a trying 4 months and I'm starting to get back into some kind of routine...my daughter and an older neighbor just said for me to think about biking, and I saw the contest and thought I'd apply!

Thanks for your comments. And my favorite bible quotation is also yours!
