Fitness Minutes: 30,748

My Goals:
I want to lose 150 pounds, get off my blood pressure and diabetes medication, live a healthier life and DANCE again.
June 2014
I have become a disaster - again. I need t0 find the motivation and stop this downward spiral

February 2, 2012
I will spend the next 10 months working toward my goal of 135 pounds which will be a total weight loss of 158 pounds. I will aim for 2 pounds/week weight loss to achieve this goal. My reward for reaching this goal will be a trip to NYC with my actress daughter.

My Program:
I am on a medically supervised Optifast rapid weight loss program through December 2011. Then the program slowly moves us to eating food in a healthy way. I have a pedometer and am striving to walk more every day. I am playing wii yoga, strength and aerobics each day and just got two chair exercise videos.

February 2, 2012
My meal plan includes healthy foods at an average of 1200 calories/day. My exercise plan includes 45-90 minutes daily of Wii & Chair exercise and 15-30 minutes walking.

Personal Information:
Single working mother of a recent college graduate.

Other Information:
Reading mysteries is a great way to keep me from obsessing about food. Reading anything is my primary stress reducer.

I love the theater, film, travel, museums and reading.

Can't wait to be able to dance again

    “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” ~ World Health Organization

    It seems like many of us face a continual battle to stay positive when little progress is apparent. We just have to keep in mind that we our efforts will result in a healthier life. We need to focus on how we are feeling and the energy we have to accomplish daily life tasks. I’m working hard to concentrate on my health rather than just on the number on the scale; to concentrate on non-scale victories to help me stay positive every day.
