Since June, I've made progress and part of me finds it hard to believe. I've dropped 27 pounds, but now I've stalled and have returned to some on my "stress" eating. Yet I've learned a few things over the last months - one being that I don't feel well when I overeat. Another is that only the first couple of bites of a food I desire really tastes great and after that I'm just stuffing, trying for those first few stimulating flavors. With that understanding, I'm able to eat a whole lot less! Also, during the time I was doing so well, every day I read my cards which detailed my motivations and ideas. This gave me hope and sense of control.

Member Since: 12/29/2005

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
I'm looking to lose 5 pounds - then to reward myself! It's strange though - I don't follow through and get that reward. I promised myself a pricey new lipstick, then a manicure - I'm ten pound behind on getting my rewards.


My Program:
This has been years of making changes and now that I using the Beck Diet book, I'm finding more success. I started with using WW points, but having lost my oomph, I may need to go to a back up plan.



Personal Information:
Mid-50's; mother of two, one still at home; great relationship with husband - we still know how to have fun together; career I love which takes a great deal of my time and energy; growing in faith which is helping me with the needed changes to get healthy


Other Information:
Love to travel and visit family; love to read; enjoy my dog; love my job; have great friends - wish I could see them more often

    "Even if the challenges are immense and the obstacles are many, step forward and live the life you choose to live. Your dreams are worth every effort.
    Even if you get knocked down again and again, get right back up and get going. With enough persistence, any goal is within your reach.
    Even if you can’t see all the way to the end of the road, go ahead and take the first step. Each time you make some progress, you’ll find new ways to make even more.
    Even if your results fall short of your expectations, keep making the effort. Each new day brings you more experience, wisdom and effectiveness.
    Even if you’ve been deeply disappointed in the past, focus on the positive possibilities. For your future is what you choose to make it now."
    — Ralph Marston
