Have you seen my self-discipline?

Hi - I'm Debbie and I'm looking for the self-discipline that I seem to have misplaced sometime in the last couple of years!  I'm a cooking teacher and there has obviously been too much taste-testing going on!  I've been part of SparkPeople for less than a week but already I feel a little self-control returning.  I need to lose about 12-15 pounds, total, and I would really love to have my warm weather clothes fit if, and when, the warm weather ever returns to the midwest!  I'm tall (5'10") so ...

SparkPoints: 20,246

Fitness Minutes: 49,841

My Goals:
My goals are seemingly simple.  I would like to be a healthy weight, be fit enough to burn calories effectively, and to fit into ALL of the clothes in my closet.

My Program:
I'm staying in the 1200-1500 calorie range recommended by SP, logging my minutes of exercise (every day) and doing the strength exercises recommended on my fitness site.  I love my treadmill.  I also participate in a dance class twice a week.

Personal Information:
Born and raised in the South (VA).  Moved to the midwest(brrrr!) as a newlywed and have stayed here.  I have two adult children, a step-daughter, daughter-in-law, son-in-law, and two grandchildren.  I also have the most amazing man in the world as my husband.  There is no one kinder or more supportive than he.

Other Information:
I am a movie lover, a book lover, a cook and a fan of people in general.  I have some lovely friends and a wonderful life.  I love to travel - my husband and I get to Napa Valley every chance we have and are learning a lot about wine.  I teach cooking classes at the local Technical College and struggle during taste-testing times!

Thanks, I'm not sure why i have been feeling so introspective lately but I decided it was a good thing to go after since it's never too late for self improvement and it is true that when/if I ease my own mind and forgive myself then maybe those other relationships will become easier too. It's worth a try anyway.

When you love to cook, there really is joy in the process isn't there? And when someone loves it enough to ask for it....it's a double joy!
