Hi, I'm Diane and I have battled my weight since I was a teenager. My obsession with my weight began the summer before I turned 17 and it has fluctuated between 113 and 240-plus pounds ever since then. Twice I have lost over 50 lbs. and probably 5 times I've lost 30-plus; I've never managed to keep it off, though. I'm trying again!

Please feel free to add me as a friend here on sparkpeople or on facebook, where my name is Diane James Storman. Thanks for visiting my page and have a healthy day!

Member Since: 5/14/2008

Fitness Minutes: 19,952

My Goals:
My long term goal is to weigh 140 pounds and to stay there!

Work out for at least half an hour, five days a week.

Take a walk, even if it just around the block, 6 days a week.

Stretch every morning; it is a good way to wake up the body and feel better throughout the day.

If I want a snack, make it mindful. Put it on a plate, sit down and enjoy it. Don't just pick and pick like I'm prone to do.

Work on being more social this year. Attend at least 3 San Diego sparkteam get togethers. Get together with a friend at least once a month.

Cook dinner at home at least 3 nights a week.

Continue to pay off credit card debt. (I made great strides on this one during 2010. Yay!)

My Program:
My goal calorie range is between 1500-1800 calories. This is a bit higher than some who stay within 1200-1500, but I've discovered that range makes me feel deprived and that only leads to overeating. I made a conscious decision to have a higher range and to exercise more and so far that has worked for me!

Personal Information:
I have lived in Cardiff, CA, near San Diego, with my husband and son for over 18 years. We love it here. My son graduated from high school last year and is in his first year of college.

Other Information:
I love to cook, swim, hike, read and play on the Internet!
