2013: I will not be very active on SP; I want to avoid the diet mentality and to learn to eat normally, trusting my body's cues.
2012: Followed WW, then low carb, then dieting 2 days a week (sometimes known as 5:2 diet), lost approx. 50 lbs
2010: In spite of being obese, my intent at this time is not to lose weight quickly, but rather to have a more normal relationship to food, to learn to recognise and honour the hunger and satiety signals my body gives me and thereby stop yo-yoing.
2013 - Learn normal eating (eat when I am hungry, stop when I am full). I am not trying to lose weight, but if I am successful, I expect my weight to go down again slowly.
2012 - Initially lose 10% of my weight, compared to my peak 2011 weight. Done.
Weigh less than 300 lbs. Done.
Lose 15% of 2011 peak weight (291 lbs) and 52 pounds in 52 weeks (290.5 lbs) by December 8, 2012.
Not done yet.
Monitor my food intake using Weight Watchers Points Plus.
Gradually increase the amount of exercise in my life; I dream of one day being able to do yoga again and to walk outside daily as I was able to do in my youth.
2010 -To cut my calorie intake by an average of 300 calories per day and possibly lose up to 31 pounds by the end of the first year. Once the weight is lost, to never, ever gain it back. To eat only when hungry, and to stop eating when full.
2013- Apply principles of Eating Competence.
2012 - Weight Watchers Points Plus
- Exercise at home: Stott Pilates matwork (easiest prep versions), exercise balls and Dyna-bands; armchair exercise.
I am French Canadian and I live in Ottawa, Ontario.
I have fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and am housebound almost all the time.
I love almost all healthy foods (yes, even tofu, flax seed oil and dark leafy green vegetables, I'm weird that way). I don't really like foods commonly known as junk food, I almost never eat them.
I am very interested in the traditional diets of the people of the islands of Crete (Grece) and Okinawa (Japan), where very many people become healthy and vigorous centenarians. They hold the secret to a truly healthy way of living.
I am an avid reader and greatly appreciate my public library's delivery service for homebound members.

How are things going with you? My trip was wonderful. Too much fantastic food, but it was vacation. Now real life is back, and I have been super busy. Hope it slows down soon.

Je me repose mais j'ai un peu de misère à ne rien faire - alors j'y vais beaucoup plus tranquillement, hahaha :)
Pour l'instant mes dents ont l'air de guérir, j'essaie d'y toucher le moins possible et de laisser mon corps faire le travail. Il s'en sort!
Et toi, comment vas-tu?
