It's My Time: DON'T DELAY-2014

12-30-13 "Improve the present time without delay. If you delay more time is lost -- DO IT NOW!" (quote from my pastor's sermon on 12-29-13) It is time for me to get serious and stop rationalizing and thinking that I will lose this weight some day. THIS YEAR (2014) is the year and TODAY is the day - I need to keep that in mind every day this year. I WILL be in Onderdland this year!!

THIS YEAR (2014) is the year and TODAY is the day - I need to keep that in mind every day this year. I WILL be in Onderdland this year!!


Oct, 2009 - I have struggled with my weight all my life. I actually had reached my goal weight for a short time, then got pregnant with my 3rd child. That was 20 years ago. I have been yo-yoing ever since. I am now over 100 pounds above my goal. I realized this week that it has been 20 years of diet after diet with no success. I NEED to stop fooling around and take this seriously and have a healthy lifestyle not a yo-yo lifestyle. I have two granddaughters. I want to be around to see them grow up. I am over 50 years old and it is way past time to really get serious about losing weight. I had a goal of being at my weight loss goal for my 30th anniversary and 50th birthday, but failed. I don't want to fail again.

From "My Goals" when I first joined SparkPeople:
My first small tiny step towards my total weight loss is to lose 15 pounds by the end of 2009. - didn't make it.

2/19/2011 I am starting anew and ready to make it this time. I have been active on SP, but my weight hasn't changed much. So I need to figure out what is broke and fix it.

1/3/2012
I lost 20 lbs by Aug 2011 and gained back 10 lbs by the end of the year. My daughter will be married on Aug 11th and I want to lose 50 lbs. I know I can do it IF I stay on track with both my eating and exercise. Exercise isn't the problem - my snacking is.

I chose for my background today of Winnie-the-Pooh stuck and his friends helping him. This has always been a favorite story of mine. Thanks to all my SP friends for their encouragement and support. I will REACH my goal.

1/1/12 = 231.2
2/1/12 =Goal Weight: 224. Actual: 222.75
3/1/12 =Goal Weight: 217. Actual: 219.5
6/1/12 =Goal Weight: 196 Actual 228.75
6/22/12 Well I didn't make any of the upper goals again. :(
8/11/12(daughter's wedding) =Goal Weight: 219.5 - didn't make in fact gained - actual weight 237.5 on 8/14

2013 -- I had a rough fall and just below at my heaviest. This year I WILL stop this yo-yo pattern and begin a healthy lifestyle. I have stopped focusing on the 149 goal weight. My big goal now is to reach 199. To do this I need to lose 4-5 pounds a month. So doable. ------ 12/30/13 Again I didn't make it. I did have a 5 lb loss for the year.

5% Challenge Commitment:
I will do the workouts given to me by my trainer -- strength training 4 x's a week and cardio every day. I will follow my PT's nutrition plan and watch the calories and portion sizes. On my Team page I will record my daily exercise and Living the Good Life Points, and on Saturdays I will weigh in and record it. I will check in with my team daily and leave a comment on the Discussion Board. I will read and comment on blogs as I have time. Signed....
