Here we go again

I did well before on my weight loss journey and lost 89 pounds but as you know sometimes life happens. Some major upheavals with foster kids, a new job, nearly losing our home in a natural disaster, have been stressful and the old patterns of eating for comfort came roaring back into my life. I gained back nearly every pound. :( My doctor gave me the speech about shortening my life, worsening health issues, etc. I don't want that! I have 2 lovely little girls in my life, my granddaughters ...

Some major upheavals with foster kids, a new job, nearly losing our home in a natural disaster, have been stressful and the old patterns of eating for comfort came roaring back into my life. I gained back nearly every pound. :( My doctor gave me the speech about shortening my life, worsening health issues, etc. I don't want that! I have 2 lovely little girls in my life, my granddaughters and things are looking rosier all the time. My husband is joining me on this journey which should make it better. With luck I can find a new TOPS group for support. The old one folded, but the old group of ladies still get together once a month.

My Goals:
Be healthier and enjoy the time I have left on our pretty planet. Also I would like to do some of the stuff on my bucket list- like learn to drive a motorcycle, climb a couple mountains, and surf again.

My Program:
I still count weight watcher points because i find that easy and fast. Overall I eat a high fiber and protein rich diet with lots of fruit and veggies. Carbs are usually my downfall. I try to exercise regularly and keep track of how many calories I burned.

Thank you for spending the time to read my blog - I think having just put that blog together - the first time I have actually put the developing story together like that and now the penny has dropped - and I am beginning to realise what I have done!! So - I'm just a bit slow in the uptake!! LOL!!
However it has proved one thing to me that if I can do it anyone can do it and you will find that the results are way beyond your wildest dreams!!

Thanks! I let myself give in sometimes, but it usually is with something less heavy. I have to do better :(
