Do Something Today That Makes Tomorrow Better. One Day at a Time.

What's in the past is the past. I will only look forward, with a bit more wisdom and a lot more determination. There's stuff I want to do and places I want to go and I don't want my weight impeding anything I want to do or my enjoyment of it.

I am now 50 years old, and I'm ok with that, but unfortunately, I did not get fit by 50 like I always intended to do. :/ Intentions are great, but it's the consistent DOING of the right things that count, that, and not pushing away feelings of ...

I am now 50 years old, and I'm ok with that, but unfortunately, I did not get fit by 50 like I always intended to do. :/ Intentions are great, but it's the consistent DOING of the right things that count, that, and not pushing away feelings of stress and anxiety with food, nor letting Little Debbie be my therapist.

I have been heavy all my life. Not always obese like now. I was actually at a healthy weight once (age 21, 143 lbs), but still thought I was fat. Boy, do I know better now. I ride the weight loss roller coaster and it's making me very weary.

I have been on SP since 2007 and in all those years I have lost and gained 30 to 50+ lbs several times. Time to stop that cycle. I'm going to lose this weight forever.

Fitness Minutes: 19,059

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to be healthy and happy and feel great being me, no matter what the scale says.

But, what would I like the scale to say? Well, according to the BMI chart, I should weigh from 118 to 158. That's quite a spread. Smack in the middle of that would be nice, 138, but for me, 158 would be much more realistic. So my goal is 158. Once I get there, if I feel I need to lose a little more, I will.

My Program:
Lots of veggies & fruit.
Moderate amount of lean meats & poultry.
A little bit of dairy.
A little bit of whole grains.
A little bit of dark chocolate.
Keeping calories around 1200 or so.

Lots of water

Hula Dancing
