I was lucky as a child. I could eat anything, and I was "just the right size" After I had my daughter, my body changed. Each corner I turned, there was an extra pound. Now, at the age of 59, I am 100 pounds overweight.
I'm losing the weight for me. For my health. I am tired of feeling sick and tired. I'm tired of my knees hurting, tired of not being able to touch the floor, tired of not being able to bend over. . .
Each month I will strive to lose 5% of my body weight. My first goal is 15 pounds.
Walk at least 10 minutes 4 times a day.
Make better choices when eating.
To exercise on a regular basis.
To sleep at night, without the use of medication.
Like many overweight people, I have a problem monitoring my intake of foods. . and exercising. I know that when I am bored, I will eat more than my weekly alottment!!
I am single, live in West Palm Beach, FL.
Have a 34 year old daughter and three beautiful grandangels!
I love to read. . murder mysteries are my favorite.
I am an avid card maker. . love to make cards. It's a good feeling when friends and coworkers enjoy my work.

Keeping a food journal isn't just about the food. It is also about how you are feeling through out the day. Are you happy, tired, feeling down or how are you feeling about your progress overall. This is just as important as what you are eating.
If you know why you are eating a particular food, then maybe you just might not want to eat that food again. It might loose it's appeal to you....
By drinking water before, during and after a meal you aid your body in digestion, appetite suppression, and a feeling of fullness. Not to mention you will feel more satiated after a meal.
This too is important with filling up our plates with veggies, they will fill you up, not out.
As important as protein is a single serving is only about the size of a deck of cards. And you will want it to be a lean serving of fish, poulty, beef or pork. Some of us like to vegan, so think tofu, lentils, beans, ect.
And last but not lest, I cannot stress this enough.... Get up and Move, Move, Move that booty!! Even if you are on the phone, walk and talk.... try to commit yourself to no less than 10 minutes daily of some type of exercise.. Do not get married to your couch, favorite chair or lounger.... this could mean a death sentence for you.
I know this first hand. My sister in law passed away from obesity. She just gave up. No one could get her out of the house. And I am sad to say I didn't even go and try.
That is why I am here! Now let's get up and ROCK THIS LIFE CHANGE TOGETHER!! MOVE IT!! MOVE IT!! MOVE IT!!
Are you with me?
