While I've always been healthy and active (I love to dance and I walk and do yoga ) I've also been overweight (and occasionally obese) nearly my entire adult life. Finding Spark People in 2008 was the start of my journey to losing and (mostly) staying in a healthy weight range.

I have no desire to be skinny -- I have always loved my curves and being a woman of substance! -- but I do want to be sure I stay healthy and that I can move my body in ways that I enjoy.

My highest weight ever was 194 (that's considered obese). I started Spark at 184 -- and lost 26 pounds. My lowest weight was 158. I am now in July 2012 at 168..and I want to get back into healthy BMI range. I'm aiming for staying between 160 and 165.

I know how to lose weight and to maintain a healthy weight. I know what foods are healthy for me -- I enjoy eating healthy foods and being active!

Namaste, everyone.

Fitness Minutes: 25,232

My Goals:
Goals as of 1/3/11

* Find an alternative to African dance class this semester. Continue yoga and belly dance.
* Track food.
* Enjoy the pleasure of walking around in a healthy body.
* Drink water! Lots of it!
* Go to bed by 11 p.m..




My Program:
Recording my food, and getting my activities in! Eating mindfully and enjoying what I eat. I aim for eating local, whole, and organic foods. I tend to eat vegetarian, but am not averse to eating locally raised chickens and other meat. I use sugar addictively, so I'm shying away from it. I'm finding that once I'm "off" it, everything else tastes plenty delicious!

Personal Information:
I'm a dancer and can be persuaded to try just about any kind of dance. I do contra and square regularly, swing now and then, and cajun and zydeco when I can. I like to walk and swim, although it is not nearly as much fun as dancing! I also play stand-up bass and rhythm guitar when I get the chance. I'm a communications and conflict resolution consultant and trainer.

Other Information:
I read a lot of nonfiction, primarily books on spirituality and conflict resolution. Books currently by my bedside are The World Without Us, The Biology of Belief, and Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington.

Thank you for noticing my fitness minutes. I have to laugh, because I never realize these things unless someone points them out on my feed.

Yesterday I decided that I had to go back to basics. I am working to get my attitude back to where it was when I first began this journey. My change yesterday was that I would eat only when I was hungry. I could eat what I wanted, but only if I was hungry. Also remembered that when I began, I allowed myself something sweet every evening after dinner, and made a place for it in my calorie count on my tracker.

Going to work on only that for awhile. Also getting more exercise, but I kind of view that as therapy for my knees at this time.

Wishing you a great and happy week.

God Bless my friend.

Bonnie

Good to see you. You are absolutely right, this weather seems to sooth my soul.

I am having a lot of trouble with food, have been for a couple of months, but am hopeful as the days go on and I am recovering from the winter depression with the lovely spring sunshine and warmth, that I will get back in the groove.

I have realized lately that I have gotten back into the "diet" mentality. I have forgotten all of the small changes I had made before all of the surgeries, and pain, and am trying to find a way to begin again to make one small change at a time, one day at a time.

Wishing you a lovely week

Bonnie

Thank you. I am very blessed with family and friends. Quite frankly that is the only reason I don't move to a warmer climate. I just can not give up all of the people here that I love.

Hope you are doing well. God Bless and have a wonderful day.

Bonnie
