A Journey

I'm hoping to get down to 150 and have made it to 189 so far. Up to this point I've sporadically counted calories and exercised through running or other various activities. I've been a member of sparkpeople for almost a year now. I do not use their calorie tracker just because I have a notebook that I use and don't want to be on the computer everyday (my work involves enough computer usage).
The reason behind this sparkpage is to motivate myself and begin blogging to keep myself ...

Thanks for adding me as a friend!

I read your profile statement and have one humble suggestion: instead of thinking about getting to 150, think about learning how to enjoy eating less and moving more. Even though there are hard parts to eating less, parts of it can be very enjoyable, too! In fact, if we don't find that we actually enjoy our lives more with new habits, we won't keep them.

I've been at this four years, and am now in my normal BMI range. I still overeat sometimes, I still have to exert effort to ignore fake hunger, but bottom line is that life, no matter how difficult or stressful it still is-and it is-, is better when I eat moderately. That is experience you can get only by living it, though you also have to have faith to begin.

I used to be 5'6"! I found out last year that I shrank an inch, which is common as you grow older. I had weighed as much as 200 lbs., but was at 185 when I had my turnaround. I wasn't sure I would lose weight; I just knew I wanted to eat more sanely. Once I was eating better, it didn't matter to me so much that I wasn't thin fast. I just felt so much better and enjoyed my eating so much more that I realized if I tried to go faster, it would probably backfire. I had seen so many people aim to get to a weight as fast as they could and then try to live there- and not be able to. I'm not as thin as many women here on Spark would like to be, but I don't fear gaining weight back. This is just the way I live now. It's pretty cool! emoticon
