AM I FOOLISH?

Am I foolish for thinking that I will be at a healthy weight again?

I don't think so!! Life is made up of ups and downs - that's a fact. Will I give up if I gain weight? NOPE! I'm never giving up!! I know that the road was a long one when I put on all of this weight, so it's going to take a long journey to take it off and learn proper nutrition and fitness again.

Can I do it? Mama didn't raise no fool....of course I can!!

Can I do it? Mama didn't raise no fool....of course I can!!


What I've learned:

1. Find foods you love that are healthy - they will feel like treats and leave you satisfied!

2. If you are craving a certain fattening food - have it! BUT only once in a while and split it with someone!! You'll still get the satisfaction from it, but with a lot less calories!

3. Treat yourself to something besides food for good behavior! It's not all about eating!



STAYING WITH THE PLAN.....

**I'm eating lots of low-fat, high fiber foods, while substituting as much as I can with whole grains

**I'm using Nutrisystem right now to get me on track

**I'm logging my food

**I'm going to exercise daily

**I'm drinking at least 8 waters daily

**I'm going to bed earlier with my family and getting 7-8 hours sleep

**I WILL NOT eat out of control because of emotions (boredom is my usual problem)

**I WILL NOT eat fattening foods with someone out of guilt

**I WILL NOT blame others for excuses as to why I'm not losing weight...I'm choosing my behavior and it must change in order to lose

I can do this....I WILL DO THIS....I HAVE TO DO THIS!

"The difference between try and triumph is just a little UMPH!" - Marvin Phillips

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." - Thomas Edison

Fitness Minutes: 74,183

My Goals:
I'd like to lose my weight and keep it off, plus be able to get off of most of my medicines. I love Sparks....it keeps me on track and motivated!


My Program:
Low carb, low sugar, low fat diet. Making sure that I'm within range for carbs, fats, protein, fiber - so I get a balanced diet.

Personal Information:
SW: 272
Goal: 150

I'm 54, and have been married for 34 years. We have one son, 26, who is a Graphic Designer and just got married!

I love to travel, paint (water colors right now), swim in our pool, go to movies, read, knit/crochet, and have fun with family and friends! So much to do....so little time!!

Other Information:
I've been a stay-at-home mom doing volunteer work since my son was in school. Now that he's an adult, I have to find things to do that keep me active! I've been overweight most of my adult life due to health issues, and have yo-yo dieted without much success. Now I'm taking the time to do something for me! I'm here to get healthy, look better, and have some fun in life without a struggle!
