Do Something Today That Makes You Proud of Yourself.

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.

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, or thereabouts.

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.

Personal Information:
I'm married to a wonderful man and we have 2 adult children and 2 teenagers. We live in Arkansas. I'm 5'7" tall.

Other Information:
I love...
-my Lord and my family
-beaches & the ocean,
-horror, fantasy, & sci-fi genre of movies, tv shows, & books
-painting, drawing, art, crafting, art journaling, writing, being creative

thanks Renee, for the goodie emoticon and the well wishes

I hope you don't feel forgotten or neglected but could hardly blame you if you do. Trying to keep up with "Life" and my Spring BLC team has kept me really busy .... plus, I just flat out need to organize my time better. If you have any suggestions, feel free to drop them on my Spark page.
