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: 25,245

Fitness Minutes: 65,454

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!

It never would have happened if I tried to nag him into it! But he knows I try to stock the fridge with better choices whenever possible. LOL

Thanks for the Rock star! but really I was just being "mom" LOL

It's good to be back home though, I have been unaccustomed to carrying laundry up and down the stairs and doing a lot of other things the "hard way too" LOL

Isn't it wonderful to be able to really live "We aren't getting older, we're getting better!" That's the thought that kept running through my mind when I thought about what my fitness was in my 30's compared to my 60's...amazing and we know what it took to build this strength too don't we?

you and me both! But I know you're on our team in spirit and I can feel your arms around my shoulders. Raiden's in good hands I know and he's surrounded in love. That's the best we can ask for.

Good points echoing your own! LOL

I am just so aggravated with myself lately since I know If it's to be, it's up to me. And I just haven't been doing it. But This is it! right?
