starting all over AGAIN!

Well....i am having to start all over again.. am up to right at 230! My highest weight ever!

I have had three surgeries in the past 4 years...maybe 5. I can't count...and now I have two "slipped discs."

Hopefully, I will not need another surgery. I am starting all over again...but this time I do have motivation....I am feeling stronger willed than I have in a long time. The body might be weak...but really it is the will that keeps us going anyway.

I am beginning to feel more compassion towards myself....starting to finally love myself to any degree.

I am lucky...because I have a lot of good friends here on Sparkpeople and also on www.schizophrenia.com that are very supportive of me.

My Goals:
My goal is to eventually get down to 125. And then I would like to stay between 125 and 130. I weighed around 127 in high school when I wasn't dieting and around 117 when I was dieting. But overall, I am looking at this as a lifestyle change, not a diet.

My Program:
I am eating around 1,200- 1,600 calories a day. I actually lose weight more when I eat around 1,600 calories. I guess my body goes into starvation mode a little early.

I enjoy yoga and try to do yoga every day. I try to do two hours of yoga every day. (Although this week has been a bad week for yoga...husband wanted the house cleaned instead..lol)

Hi Lois, I need to get out more....it's just so hot.....I live in Florida and have since the year 2000 but before that I had lived in Tennessee all my life... starting out in Farragut......then Knoxvile...then Chattanooga....then Ooltewah ( a little bitty town by Chattanooga) and then Maynardville before moving down here.....

I need to get my butt in gear and go walking, etc... I'm sure I'd feel a lot better. I'm scared of walking alone.....especially since I can't turn my head and see if someone is following me or something.......

I do so miss the changing of the leaves...doesn't really happen here.....
I love the Smoky Mountains and used to take my now grown children there all the time....every fall we would hike around the Chimney trail..... mostly we played in the creeks at the bottom of the trail...but I have been to the top many times.......

I haven't hiked in 15 years and I miss it..... we are going to visit my first grandbaby in October probably...after he is born and maybe I will get a chance to go to the mountains for a day..... also we are visiting my husband's mother.... I adore her. I don't have a good relationship with my Mom........which makes me very sad.

thanks for posting to my page! you have a great day too!

Hope you are having a fantastic day and one without pain. I enjoyed using my walker and spending time overlooking the woods and stream behind our house. The cool breeize, gently falling leaves, birds chatterings, and squirrels crunching the leaves nearby.

I live in East Tn and hope to see an awesome fall of chaning leaving blazing the mountains seen not far from my window.

Have a great day,
Lois
