Alone Again...Naturally!

Here I am, once again, losing weight. I had lost down to 115lbs. and was able to maintain my weight between 115 and 120 for over four years. Then, I got married. My husband was overweight and very threatened by my thinness. He was constantly putting me in a position where I ate unhealthy and was unable to maintain my exercise program. I'm not blaming him (not totally, anyway!) I allowed him to control me and did not stand up for what was important to me. Now, I am divorced, unemployed ...

I'm not blaming him (not totally, anyway!) I allowed him to control me and did not stand up for what was important to me. Now, I am divorced, unemployed and, of course, overweight! I weigh 139lbs. I am trying to find a new job, but all my work clothes were bought for a 115lb. person. I cannot afford a new wardrobe and I will not be "fat and happy." I have done it before and I will do it again. It is just harder this time-I'm 43 years old! I just need some guidance and encouragement. I just need to know what to count, how much it should be, and what foods are best to reach my goal. I am back to exercising (walk/run, workout tapes) and I just need a little bit of help!

P.S. I didn't have room for all four of my kids on the main page so I put my grandkids on. My kids are in my photo gallery, though!!

My Goals:
To lose weight, establish a healthy lifestyle, and be happy with my self image.

My Program:
I was trying to keep my calories between 1,200 and 1,300, but the eating plan is 1,200 to 1,550. I have found when I go on the higher end, I actually lose weight, so...And I am exercising four to five times a week. I walk/run and do exercise tapes. I have also added strength training to my program.

Hi,
you have 4 beautiful children and an adorable grand-daughter! You lost 13 pounds already, you left 130 Ville, and are only 6 pounds away from your goal! You have so much to live for and be happy, right now! Congratulations! Try not to let the past get over you: there was something in there for you to learn, so now that it is done, let's turn the page and read the next chapter, ok?
You deserve a Goodie!
Cheers,
Annie ;-)

Yes, Boston's are the cutest, once you have one you'll never want another type of dog. Good luck on the weight loss, isn't it just so frustrating, when you wait a whole week to get weighed, following your food intake and exercise as you should, and that scale says no change??? GRRR Someone told me I wasn't eating quite enough, so I upped it a bit, and it didn't help, LOL emoticon
