Carrie is a verb, a verb is an ACTION word

Sometimes it stinks to have a verb for a name. You hear your name all the time. But now, I embrace it. A verb is an ACTION word. Like an Action hero, or "lights, camera, action!" I'd rather be run, or fly, or jump, but Carrie will have to do. Now that I have successfully reached my goal, I can carry a lot more than that weight around!

A very wise man once told me that I needed to stop carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders. For a large part of my life, I did carry a lot of emotional baggage. As I freed myself from it, it allowed me to free myself of the extra physical weight I carried as well.
I spent the majority of my life at a healthy weight. My 80 pound weight gain began 11 years ago when my husband and I moved our family back to our hometown and our extended families. It was made worse by a skiing accident which shattered my leg and left me in a wheelchair for months.
I lost 40 pounds in a neighborhood weight loss challenge in 2010, but the weight loss stalled. Finally, in January of 2012, I decided that I was punishing myself far more the way that i was living than any diet had ever punished me. I went to Weight Watchers, and over the course of 6 months, I lost another 50 pounds to reach my goal weight. I continued to lose for a few months before settling at 130 pounds for a total weight loss of 100 pounds. I have maintained this weight, +/- 4 pounds, since then.

My Goals:
Now that I have achieved my weight loss goal, I want to maintain it. I realize that this can be as hard as losing it. I will be diligent. I will monitor myself carefully. Monitoring my behavior and weight is a lot easier than monitoring blood sugar and blood pressure -- which was my future without weight loss.

My Program:
Continue to exercise and eat healthfully. I will now be setting fitness goals so that I continually have something to work towards.

Personal Information:
I am a former financial professional. I retired 17 years ago to raise my son and 2 daughters. After choosing to marry my husband 23 years ago, it was the best decision I ever made! My kids are the greatest bonus I could have ever received!

I read your bio, I started at 227#, today 202. I'm walking my weight off, eating healthy and trying to stop looking back at my terrible childhood. I am 65, time to grow up and realize that what is ahead of me us more important.
