The final 20... or maybe 30...

OK... Time to get serious about these last 20 pounds.
I have been at a plateau for over a year now and I am done!
I am ready to get serious about this.

I know I am healthy! Even though my BMI is still overweight - I know I am healthy. No one would look at me and say, "Wow, she's overweight." but I have my own goals...

I want to feel good in my skin.
I want to try on clothing withour fear of having a total meltdown in the dressing room.

SparkPoints: 51,020

Fitness Minutes: 70,877

My Goals:
1) Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day (or water equivalent... LOVING decaf green tea!)
2) Exercise even when I only have 15 minutes!!! Usually I say, "What's the point?" NOT a good attitude!
3) Stay healthy!!! Don't overdo it. Stay within doctor's recommendations for exercise.
4) Stay in control of my goals when I want to grab a snack... Do I REALLY want that?

My Program:
Taking it day by day - tracking food, exercising, not expecting too much too soon. I'm trying to be more kind to myself this time around! :-)
Things I do every day:
1) Track my food!!
2) Go for a walk - inside or outside, depending on weather.
3) Continue with Yoga & Pilates. They have repaired my body over the past few years & I want to keep moving forward with it!
4) ZUMBA!!! I LOVE it! It doesn't even feel like exercise!

Personal Information:
I am a 41 year old Mom of 3 wonderful children... 2 boys & a girl. I have been married for 17 (WOW) years. I live in The NYC area with my husband - BEST guy in the world - & kids. Grew up in NYC & LOVE being here! There is nothing quite like the energy of the city!

Other Information:
I am a very open person, but prefer to remain anonymous on this site because of various factors in my life. I hope that doesn't turn you off. I take being a Spark-Friend pretty seriously... I don't "collect" virtual friends. I want to develop a circle of mutually supportive people on the site & if I have too many friends I won't be able to give the support I want to give!

the remainder of the baklava still calls my name today but I will eat it only if I have calories and I will consider it a treat later in the day. The toe thing is weird....it kind of feels like a sprain or something but the kind of bouts of intense pain are odd for that. Well, either way I think I just need to rest it!

Bananas are so good for you and I do like the taste......BUT.....I am allergic to them! What a bummer right? I developed the, what I can only guess is an allergy, later in life. It kind of feels like someone has punched me in the stomach when I eat one lol.

Thanks! It was definitely a funny situation! I'm excited for this to become a habit because it's another way to get enjoyable exercise into my day!

Oh goodness it did feel great to get that dress altered! I bought it probably about a month ago and ended up in a size 14. The size 12 they had was waay too tight but the 14 was just a hair too big. I knew I would need alterations but my oh my! There was a lot of material she pulled back there. It is ending up being taken in a fair bit.

I was surprised at how cute it looked when she pulled the bits and pieces in. It is a one shoulder strap with lots of rouching throughout and it is meant to be kind of a sheath. It's just one of those dresses that emphasizes the natural waist!
