Time to get back to reality

I joined SP three years ago and while I had great success in the early days, I fell off the wagon - so now it is time to climb back on!! Ready to be challenged and ready to get serious again. I am fairly fit (Zumba four times a week plus other activities) but need to be in a controlled environment and also focus on my diet, which I now know needs to be geared towards lowering my cholesterol.

It is early days yet but I am finding SparkPeople so useful and motivating, with so many great resources at my fingertips.

Fitness Minutes: 28,476

My Goals:
My main goal is to be at 150 pounds or less by my 50th birthday in January 2011. I am going to set myself goals and rewards in 10lb chunks (appropriate word, lol). At the start of the year I was setting myself a time frame of 10lbs every 10 weeks but I have soon come to find that this is not realistic, and only adds to the stress of trying to lose weight. And we all know that stress has the opposite effect! So time to step back and just lose as and when I can and not put so much pressure on myself. Just look forward to the rewards.

My Program:
So here is my plan - to track my nutrition and fitness every day on SP and to compete in SP challenges to make myself accountable. I will not deprive myself and will allow treats (such as wine with dinner on Saturday, chocolate a couple of times a month).

My REWARDS for meeting my GOALS for 2010.

SW (Jan 2nd 2010) 189

180 reward - manicure (DONE! May 21st 2010)

170 reward - pedicure

160 reward - spa day

150 reward - new wardrobe

And then decide whether to maintain or whether I need to lose a bit more.


Personal Information:
I am English, but have lived in Bermuda since 1994, when I applied for a job (I am in IT) which was supposed to be for two years but here I am, still here!

Other Information:
Love to read(crime thrillers, murder mystery type of thing), cook and travel.

Have also just discovered how much I love to exercise, although I think I knew deep down, Just never committed much time to it until the last few months.

Hi Jackie, How have you been. I was gone for a long time partly due to my computer dying and I had to save up for a new one. Any way I was hoping to touch base best wishes emoticon
