After a lot of starts and stops I got into this year at goal and stayed - even with 3 weeks of travel and the annual holiday bash of parities and challenges. Went to my local meeting and made it for the 3rd month in at goal weight. It is good to be here ! I know it's only the next meal that will determine weather I remain on this path or go back to the old one.So I just focus on the next meal and doing what I know will benefit me and not break me down. Hang tough - it's worth it! Happy 2014!

My Goals:
I want to take the time while I'm at home to improve my health and start out my retirement in good health and with a lifestyle I can sustain and keep off the pounds.

Pounds that have always sought me throughout my life.

My Program:
Walking seven days a week with my small dog two times each day and 3 days a week I'm weight training and twice a week - a 20 min. elliptical sprints. I also line dance about 3 hours a week.
I think I've found what works for me.
When I can I work in a swim.

Food is a bit more tricky and I'm now working with my personal trainer from many years ago when I lived in Riverside. She's the best.

Personal Information:
My name is Deborah- I live in Ventura, Ca. retired.

Other Information:
I love to read, movies, and to nest. I participate in helping others and studying the bible in small groups. My kids are out and in college so it's me at home with hubby who's working and a small dog named Bruiser. We've lived in Ventura, CA just six and a half years and love it and hope to retire here if we can swing it.

    Thanks so much for your comment on my page and the sparkgoodie!! It's great to finally be at goal but I'm finding to that it's challenging dealing with the splurges and emotional eating days to. So it's not like you get anywhere but a number. Eating healthy is a way of life. Every day is a fresh slate and yet new challenges to overcome. I'm glad to have support from people like you who can help me balance myself out so I don't get discouraged beyond repair on a bad day and give in to much! Thanks again! :)
