Shrinking Otter

Hi! I lost 65 pounds on Weight Watchers about 5 years ago, but have gained most of it back. So I'm back at SparkPeople trying to get back to where I was -- and then continue losing because I have a really long road to travel. I'm tweaking my strategies, too.

My Goals:
I have lots of weight to lose. I didn't gain it overnight and I won't lose it overnight. My main goals are to "regain control", get healthier, more fit, to feel more energetic and self-confident. I want to reduce the stress and wear & tear on my body, particularly my knees and feet. I'm confident that weight loss will effect some positive changes in other areas of my health as well. I'm trying to work with a short term weight loss goal by Thanksgiving. After that, I'll set a new short term goal, etc. I am re-thinking how aggressive my goals have typically been, and how I've failed to achieve them. I need to be realistic, but I need to move forward!

My Program:
I have to get back to committing to track my food, and continue to get to the gym 3-4 times per week.

Personal Information:
I live in rural Connecticut.

Hope you had a Happy Easter. emoticon I did and it was 72 degrees too. So pretty and had my heat off and doors open. Today it is cold,windy and raining again. Oh well, still Spring and we are lucky for the sunny days.
I had been sick with Bad sinus for 4 weeks and thank goodness that is all better. Hope you are well. Do take care. God bless. emoticon
hugs, Ei

You are doing Super on your weight loss and activity. Good for you. It is a wonderful feeling when it starts to show up isn't it? We can do this and we are doing it. emoticon
Thanks for your support and all your comments on my page when I lose or keep active. I appreciate it. emoticon
Seems like I have not been in touch with as many people since I am at the gym 5 mornings a week and time is so busy. It has become my priority and good habit to make it to classes there and also to walk the track and use the stationary bike too. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Keep doing what you are doing. It is Awesome. Have a wonderful rest of the week. God bless. hugs, Irish Ei
