2015 - Ready to hit maintenance!

UPDATE 5/30/2015: I did it! I landed at my goal weight (actually just a bit below) on 4/7/14!! I have managed, despite a lot of emotional upheaval, to stay within about 1.5 lbs of that weight I hit since then.........staying still below my "goal weight" by 2 lbs. Maintenance has been a rocky road, and given all that has happened just since Jan. 1, I'm rather proud that I've been able to maintain where I am despite some glitches in my "food plan".

My dear Mom died on April 26th and that has been the biggest challenge for me personally in both learning about myself AND in my eating habits. I'm a stress/emotional eater from WAY back and this truly has tested my limits. I'm doing better than I expected in a lot of ways, and not as good as I'd like to in so many - both in my response to my stress AND in my emotional self. I'll get there.............I keep learning and growing, and I hope as I do that, I'll be able to pass along some of my own lessons to others.

It truly IS a journey..........and adventure!!!!

I am able to finally start a new year with a very positive statement: I hit the goal I set for myself and am under 170 lbs as of 12/31/2014! I finally feel like I have the mindset I have needed to find to make weight loss successful and have around 15 lbs as I write this to reach the weight goal I've set for myself. I know the last few pounds will be the toughest to lose, and I know I still have bumps to get over to get there. I plan, however, on being at my goal and trying to maintain by the end of 2015.

I AM DETERMINED!

My Goals:
1. Learn to rely less on "numbers" and more on "look and feel"

2. When looking at numbers, be realistic in what I can attain and maintain and still feel healthy.

3. Maintain some kind of exercise program.

4. Stay active and healthy so I can play with The Princess and The Little Dude....and camp......and bike......

My Program:
Weight Watchers, portion-control, and increasing exercise are things that are working well for me as long as I do them! I need to incorporate more ST in this new year...........

Personal Information:
My name is Linda, and I live in Central Ohio. I'm 59, I'm a nurse, and have finally learned to appreciate my own health. I am learning to say no, and I'm learning to put myself first in the "healthy" department. I'm looking very forward to seeing what 2015 is going to bring my way!

Other Information:
I love to travel, love to camp, and love to bike (as in the pedal kind!). I also love to read but don't do nearly as much of it as I should!

Thank you so much for your message and the goodie! In Athens it is 22:00 o clock and I am out of the house from 9:00 in the morning!
Today my daughter (my baby) moved to her own home. We worked hard for this about 10 days and now it is done!
I hope you understand my emotion, fatigue and my joy at the same time!
Tomorrow I will have a rest day and a lot of time to chat and know better my team.Give me some time please and some understanding, because I have an empty nest now! emoticon
