How to Eliminate 100 (or so) Pounds...

Welcome friend!!
Here's a little about where I've been and how I got here.

I think my first diet started at about age 9. I remember going to Weight Watchers meetings with my mom as a kid. Then I joined WW at 13. I was an on-off member until probably 2007. Through the years I've tried a multitude of ways to lose weight- pills, liquid diets, Atkins, NutriSystem, strange sounding made up diets, Jenny Craig, Noni juice- if you name it, I've tried it or I know someone who has! ...
Welcome friend!!
Here's a little about where I've been and how I got here.

I think my first diet started at about age 9. I remember going to Weight Watchers meetings with my mom as a kid. Then I joined WW at 13. I was an on-off member until probably 2007. Through the years I've tried a multitude of ways to lose weight- pills, liquid diets, Atkins, NutriSystem, strange sounding made up diets, Jenny Craig, Noni juice- if you name it, I've tried it or I know someone who has!

At the end of 2007 I stumbled across the You on a Diet book. I got the book and loved it! I started walking once a day even before I finished it. Then I injured my IT band (a muscle attached to the knee). The 20 or so pounds I'd gotten off came back on and I slowly packed on more weight. My highest weight was 255.

In the fall of2009, I was laid off and really decided to do whatever I could do on the treadmill and slowly get back into working out. Then this spring, I entered a weight loss challenge with friends and it gave me the motivation to get on the ball with my workouts AND my eating. They also told me about Spark People!

So here I am: healthy again, moving again, and I'm taking care of that IT band so that it won't get in my way again.

I am sure that we all do things slightly differently from one another. It matters not what road we take to achieve our goals. I am well on my way to living the life Iíve always wanted to live. I hope to make some new friends here to take on the journey, and learn from other and about myself!

My Goals:
To live the life I always wanted... starting NOW!

A life of balance, fun, and one where my body, spirit, and mind get what they need.

How? Good friends, fun hobbies, some alone time, and yes- good food!

To start off, I'd like to...
--Release 25#s by August 15.
--Release at least 3 inches from my waist.
--Be faithful to my plan for movement- walk 30 mins. every day- no excuses.

My Program:
I am following the eating and exercise plans outlined in: YOU ON A DIET: THE OWNERS MANUAL FOR WAIST MANAGEMENT.

What does that mean?
- I walk at least 30 mins/day- every day!
- I do 60 mins/wk of weight training.
- I do 60 mins/wk of cardio.
- I eat well, often, and mindfully!
- I weigh/measure myself once a month- and that's it!

Personal Information:
Hmmm....
- I'm a Pisces, 5'4 & my name is Selene.
- I love container gardening
- Like everyone else in Atlanta, I grew up in Queens, NY and moved to Georgia in 2000.

- Fun goals for me... Someday soon I'm going to:
* Start taking yoga again.
* Start belly dancing again.
* Learn to swim.
* Run... yes of my own free will!
* Do both a 5K AND triathlon before I'm 40!
* Skydive (woohoo!)
* Visit Hawaii.

Other Information:
WORDS MATTER! When you say something like "I've been fat all of my life" what does that mean? What are you damning yourself to in the future? Is that really what you want for yourself?

CHOOSE WORDS CAREFULLY in your thoughts as well as speech. Thoughts become things!

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
