THE TIME IS HERE TO START OVER AND NEVER TURN BACK!

Hi Everyone! My name is Linda and have 122 pounds to lose to put me in a normal weight range. What the final weigh loss will be depends on how I feel & look. The most important thing is I must be comfortable with myself. I guess my title page says it all. I have been a member off and on for a few years now. It is time I hold myself accountable and get serious about losing weight. I am tired of yo yo dieting. I am really tired of the way I look and feel. I am fearful of developing heart ...
Hi Everyone! My name is Linda and have 122 pounds to lose to put me in a normal weight range. What the final weigh loss will be depends on how I feel & look. The most important thing is I must be comfortable with myself. I guess my title page says it all. I have been a member off and on for a few years now. It is time I hold myself accountable and get serious about losing weight. I am tired of yo yo dieting. I am really tired of the way I look and feel. I am fearful of developing heart disease or diabetes which runs in our family. I lack discipline, self control and perseverance. But that is O.K. I am here to learn. When I think of my goal it puts a BIG SMILE on my face! I know when I lose the weight I will have more energy and my self esteem will soar! I know it's going to be a long road but I AM GOING TO TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME! I'm in this for the long haul. Their seems to be so much help on the site that I know in my heart I will succeed! My short team goal is to leave Twoterville & enter into Onederland by the end of July 2015. I can do it! I will do it! I believe in myself. I'm not a quitter!

10 days and counting until grandkids are gone. It's been the most challenging time fixing 3 meals plus snacks day after day. I was 205 then 206.8 one day and back to mid 205 this morning. I should have been 3 pounds lighter by now, but I try not to think about that. I can really feel the difference when I get my calories from processed foods, almost instantly. Then I go to bed hungry and wake up hungry and my joints hurt. What is keeping me in the green is the time I spend in our pool with the kids. I make sure I stay moving.
I hope you are doing well!!!

Hey Linda! It's all good. You're still progressing and that's what matters! I think you will def make to 180'ville by Christmas. No doubt! I believe in you! Thank you so much for always supporting me and checking in. It means a lot. :) I have a whole new way of thinking about life in general and therefore weight loss. It's all in the mind! I just wrote a blog about it actually. But I am excited. We can do this! I am going to do some 'before' pics soon and put those up so I can show my progress as it happens. :) Hope you're having a good day. :)

Thanks for adding me to your friends, and for the nice comments on my page! Strangely, beer is what 'sparked' the realization that I had to cut grains from my diet. I had started out losing pretty well from Jan-Mar, but had a period where was trying to just 'eat healthy' (whole grains, low fat, low calories). I started having a beer or two a day with my husband, and even though I was adjusting for the calories, the weight started coming back on instantly. Even worse, my sciatica, joint and back pain began ramping up. I had been looking into a paleo/primal template of eating (no grains, clean food sources and healthy fats) and decided that I would take out the grains and see what happens. It took less than two days for me to realize that it was the answer my body needed!

I love a good micro brew, and they can actually be healthy too, in great moderation, but I just don't drink them anymore. Now, if I choose to drink, it will be a mixed drink like tequila or vodka with mineral water and lime. But I find I feel much better without alcohol. I wish this could be a journey my husband and I take together, but he's very receptive when it comes to walking & hiking with me (which makes him also very aware how uncomfortable the beer makes him!), so maybe he'll come around...

As for comments - I'm beginning to chalk it up to insecurity (on their part, not mine). I think people are either too worried about offending, or too worried about their own weight issues to want to broach the subject. I don't stress it - I literally think of it as a contest: who will be the one?? Lol! I know, looking back at pictures, that I look the healthiest and thinnest that I have in more than 10 years, so it's good enough for me!

Congrats on reaching Onederland! I'm working my way down that road and will be showing up right after Becky! Let's get to where we're going, and have fun doing it!!

Hey! So happy for you about Onederland! It's a great feeling isn't it? I'm back! I regained all my weight. But I'm not whining about it, nor looking back, only living in the here and now and moving forward! How are you?
