I'm 46, married, and have 3 kids. My weight is something that is constantly on my mind. I want to lose the weight and make room for more positive thoughts and experiences in my life.
I lost 40 pounds with Weight Watchers several years ago, but gained it back once I went off the program. I'm hoping that I can make some steady progress and get back on track.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago and went through surgery, chemo, and radiation. I am now two years cancer free. This year, I hope to make good progress towards freeing myself from this cumbersome weight. Here's to a wonderful year!!


I keep trying to lose weight, but it keeps finding me!! ~ author unknown

Gluttony is not a secret vice. ~ Orson Wells

Obesity is a mental state, a disease brought on by boredom and disappointment. ~ Cyril Connolly, The Unquiet Grave..... Maybe this is controversial, but I know in my case I am often eating because of boredom and disappointment.

If you have formed the habit of checking on every new diet that comes along, you will find that, mercifully, they all blur together, leaving you with only one definite piece of information: french fried potatoes are out. ~ Jean Kerr

Obesity is really widespread. ~ Joseph O. Kern II

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat are really good friends. ~ Author Unknown

My Goals:
I want to get down to a healthy weight. My hope is that I can become healthier, be around for my children, and provide a better example for them than I have in the past.

My Program:
I am mainly trying to eat more fruits and veggies and make smarter, healthier choices. My goal is to stay between 1500-1600 calories a day and drink plenty of water. I'm trying to increase my activity level, but I still have a long way to go.

I'd like to learn not to eat late in the evening, but so far that's been a major struggle.

Personal Information:
I live in NE Ohio.

Other Information:
I am trying to reevaluate my life. I want to learn to do the things that give me great joy and not put them off one more day. Who knows how many days any of us have left? My first love is art: drawing, painting, etc. I also love to read, especially mysteries, and have a deep longing to someday be an author. I have a passion for genealogy research , as well.

    That's a great idea. I've heard of people creating a motivational
    wall of pictures, or something similar. I think I will do that. Thanks for the tip!

    Thanks for accepting my friend request! Don't beat yourself up about your pictures, use them to start (or add to) a motivational poster for yourself. I'm preaching to myself here, too. If you go to my page, you might notice I don't have ANY pictures of myself.

    I'm telling myself not to look back to condemn myself but to see how I can use them to improve.

    Heyyyy girlie!!! Thanks for the comments on my page :)

    I see your status that you're struggling not to backtrack more. Hmmm...maybe set a 10% goal for now. Once you get up and over the crest of the hill to get going-- I think you'll be fine!
