I started this journey countless times in the past. I'd lose and gain and every year it seems I gain a few extra pounds for good measure. Well, this year is different. This year I am confident I will reach my goals. This is the year I am going to understand and accept myself. As a result, I look forward to feeling lighter, smiling more, and inviting more joy and live into my life. I'm 48, live and work in New York City and am determined to have a good year in 2016! ***********************************
*** Whenever I think of the total amount I want to lose, I get overwhelmed. So let's not think about that! Instead, how about focusing on practicing healthy behaviors: -track all but 3-4 meals a week -exercise regularly -leverage shrink yourself to insert thought -follow my plan with conviction; avert the agony Start: 222 1/1/16 Goal: 180 10/25/2016 (my 49th birthday present!) 1/1/16: 220.0 1/8/16: 5 pounds down milestone 217 --- massage 10 pounds down milestone 212 ---sagura pedicure 15 pounds down milestone 207 20 pounds down milestone 202 25 pounds down milestone 197--bra shopping at Selfridges! ******************************

My Goals:
My overall goal is to slowly and permanently incorporate healthy eating and exercise into my daily life. I hope to lose about 60 pounds, lose a lot of aches and pains in my knees and back and gain lots of energy in the process.

My weight loss goal is in 5 pound increments . I plan to be well out of the 200's by my 46th birthday on October 25th.


My Program:
1. Preparing: I am stocking my fridge/freezer with healthy meals each week. Simple preparations, using local, seasonal ingredients from the farmers market.

2. Track Without Obsessing: I am planning and tracking everything that I eat daily. Still going out but balancing it with my own meals. When I go out, I'll be enjoying a delicious meal with no more than 1 drink and passing on dessert so that I can enjoy the first 2 courses thoroughly.

3. Reduce Eating: I am keeping within 1850 calories (more if I exercise). Goal is deficit of 500 per day which nets out to losing a pound a week.

4. Dealing: I am dealing with emotional eating issues using the sparkpeople coaching program and outside coaching.

5: Exercising: I am doing 30 min of cardio 3x per week; 25 min strength training 2x per week; and 3 yoga classes per week. If the weather cooperates, I'll soon add a weekly long distance bike ride and/or tennis match .

6. Support: I hav

    I loved your reminder to ID_Vandal to take the weight loss 5 pounds at a time. I actually started doing this in January and it's made all the difference in the world. In fact, my goal for April was 155 and I made 154.5 this MORNING! So I feel good I've already made my 5-pound April goal. Not that I'll slack the rest of the month...I need to get a jump on May's goal!

    It's amazing how much difference setting a small, attainable goal has made for me -- and YOU TOO! You have done a great job this year as well! Let's cheer each other on as we BOTH make 2012 the year we hit our goal. emoticon emoticon

    You are so right - debate does take more time and energy - and muddles things up. Decision with conviction is a great way to go.

    Beck has great suggestions; some of them we can learn ourselves too, if we pay close enough attention.
