It is worth it & still at goal. WooHoo

Hi: I'm Irene and I started my journey on the 12th of February , 2007 and reached my goal weight the 15th of November 2007.
My missionary work calls for some traveling and I actually lost weight on a 4 week trip. We can do it.
I live on the Mexican border after living in the country of Mexico for 20 years and have worked with the Mexican people since 1962
Plan to keep the weight off as I gave away all my big clothes. My reward for reaching goal was new clothes.
P.S. ...

P.S. Did gain about 10 pounds back although lost some inches and my bmi improved after I started exercising. Now need to lose the pounds I gained. I have begun losing it now. I can't let it creep up on me little by little.
UPDATE On the 9th of September of 2010 I hit my goal weight.
Now I plan to keep it off and go a little lower.
I am so happy to be back down there and each time you gain I understand your body makes more fat cells and it is harder to lose the pounds you gained.
YOU CAN DO IT TOO.
It has been possible to maintain my goal weight or under since then which is a little over a year now.
Well, this is April of 2012 and I have still been below my goal weight.
It is not so easy to maintain since I retain fluid but not impossible.
I'm doing it again without exercise since I hurt my knees at the gym.
Am now praying to not have knee replacement.
As you know in 2013 I had 2 knee replacements.
WE CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS US.

My Goals:
Maintain my goal weight or under for a year straight. I did it, now on to my second year.
Be sure and drink my water and eat my veggies (which I do).
Encourage others as much as I can.
Keep a smile on my face and know God will help me do what I can't when I have done all I can.


My Program:
I have reached my goal. I watched my portions, chose nutritional food, pushed my plate away when full if at a buffet and asked for a carry out at other restaurants. I eat out at least once a day and you can do it.

Personal Information:
For over 50 years I have been a foreign missionary after ministering in the US for a few years.
Recently I had knee replacement. (March 8, 2013)
Now I am getting ready for the next knee replacement.

Thank you for your comment on my blog. My daughter is smart indeed, but she also got lucky she found out about blood sugar. I so wish that kids (of all weights and sizes) were tested routinely every year. It would save so much heart ache for them.

Glad you found the answer about the bank. What a nightmare.

I gave all my clothes away so everything I have now fits and I like what all is there. It's a good incentive to keep on track so I don't gain any wt. back. emoticon
