Yuck! I am turning 50 this year, just quit a 35 year smoking habit (good for me!) but now want to lose some of this weight. Everytime someone takes a picture of me, this chubby older woman jumps in front of the camera. I am going to my niece's wedding in Costa Rica in October, and I would like to be down to 165 by then.

My Goals:
1. 165 by October 1, 2008, then reevaluate
2. Begin exercising, and make it part of my life again
3. Eat better every day, so that I have more energy and don't feel deprived, or like I am dieting.

My Program:
I really am just focusing on staying in my calorie range for January.
My exercise is still very hit or miss, and I want to address that more seriously in February.

Personal Information:
From Western Mass, where it is cold and days are short this time of year!

Also have an "extra" kid with us, my son's friend who is 19 (family problems, and he now is with us). My hubby is 50 and fabulously fit, a distance runner.

Thanks for the nice comment on my page :)

You can do this... instead of focusing on your final goal of 165 right now, you might want to consider setting a small goal, like losing just 10% of what you weigh now. You'll hit that first goal a lot more quickly and that will help to keep you motivated. Just take it one day at a time, keep exercising and eating well and the weight will come off!

Thank you for your kind words....I think anyone who has been through it recognizes the slow loss and the accompanying pain. I find I always cry the day I say goodbye, then get back the strength...I still say, I'll take her anyway I can have her! They've been great parents, and no matter what their condition, they are mine. I count every day I have them a blessing....
