Member Since: 8/26/2006

SparkPoints: 8,987

Fitness Minutes: 2,015

My Goals:
I want to lose at least 100 pounds. I will know when I get there if that is enough.

I have lost 26 pounds since I crawled back on the wagon again and I am praying I can stay on the right track long enough to lose the other pounds ... 1 pound at a time.

My Program:
I am using the food tracker religiously, increasing water intake, and really working on increasing my activity level.

Personal Information:
I am a wife, mother of four, and grandmother of eleven.

I am newly retired and working to adjust. I miss teaching, but I am renewing old hobbies and I have more time to concentrate on getting this weight off.





Other Information:
I love heirloom sewing ... I could spend hours with this hobby (if I had them to spend). I also love to read and I am afraid I spend too much time surfing the web.

Thanks! I am close, but it gets frustrating that I just can't seem to get there. This time I will. I think my reward for getting into "Onederland" will be a massage. Sounds like a great incentive.

Have a great day, you are determined, and you will get there!

How ironic!! I started cleaning out my piles and piles of books that I buy and never get a chance to read. So, decided to read them one at a time and get rid of a majority of them. Sell them on line or at a garage sale.

Anyway, the one I am reading is a really old books called "Think yourself Thin" It's all about the psychology of loosing weight. One of the things I was reading on the way back from working out was how we rationalize reasons to eat (whatever or vice is). It also talks about projecton, (it's outside forces fault) Fantasy, (once or dreams come true everything will be fine and the weight will just fall off). That's as far as I got.

The book is by Dr. Frank J. Bruno. Not sure if you could find it anywhere, but it is really hitting home for me. I know that the articles on SP say pretty much the same thing but for some reason this book is just clicking with me.

Went to work out at the gym. On the way home the first bus stop is right by a Taco Bell, I so wanted to go in, then realized is was rationalizing and walked away. Get off the 2nd bus and there is a Jersey Mikes Sub shop, a L & L Barbecue, a frozen yogurt shop, a Subway and a Little Cesear's Pizza. Again started to rationalize, but say the bus coming and get on quickly before I gave in.

We can do this together. emoticon

Thanks for stopping by, hang in there you can do this.

I also am 62, and beginning to have some health problems. I have had several Dr. appointments these last few weeks. Like I mentioned before I've been under a lot of stress this past school year, and I knew it was really getting to me emotionally. But after these Dr. visits, and until I got some of the test results back I didn't realize how much all this stress affected me physically as well.

I'm doing much better with the eating. Finding it easier every week resisting the "Sweets" I still have an occasional treat. I'm just now working on getting that daily exercise in.

Remember we are all here to help you! Let me know how I can support you in this journey.

I hardly browse SP anymore. Going to start working with a local group here so I can stay on track. Nice to see you are still tracking and working toward healthy goals!
