Visualize Daily:
Imagine life...
...having energy to spare
...having the drive to get out and do things
...being able to find clothes that fit well
...being able to put lotion on my own feet
...being able to get up from the couch in one movement
...being able to "stand around" without sweating
...being able to go all weekend without NEEDING a nap
...being able to think clearly
...being able to remember recent events clearly
...being able to get through a work day without feeling EXHAUSTED.
...being able to keep the house clean
...being able to focus on making/keeping myself healthy
...being able to live without weekly injections
...being able to come off all the meds
...having my blood pressure under control without meds
...being able to wear shorts
...having the energy and interest in taking the dogs out

Initial steps to get started on this mission:
1. Making meals at home - less dependent on pre-made, processed, food. Limiting eating out to once a month.
a. menu planning.
b. grocery shopping
2. Tracking the food I eat.
3. Try one new healthy recipe each week.

Obstacles to be prepared for, and overcome:
1. PMS - raging sugar craving
a. allow one splurge day to satisfy the sweet tooth.
b. monitor w/ calendar to validate the cause of the sugar craving.
c. when craving starts, do something hands on to distract.
2. Charles
a. be strong and review vision list to remind myself why I'd rather not eat what he eats.
b. remember we're doing this to be here for him, and allow me the ability to care for him as we age.
c. remember we're setting a good example for him to follow.
3. Craving for "unhealthy food"
a. when craving starts, do something hands on to distract, go for a walk, work on a scrap book, read, clean, etc.
b. think about what's going on, what's triggering the craving an journal about it.
c. allow one cheat day per week, Saturday. If I still want it on Saturday than it shall be.

My Program:
************************
Past:
I've changed my eating habits. I make sure I get my 5-9 fruits and veggie servings every day, low fat meats/proteins. Calories are kept within range, carb - whole grains and such - limited to 210grams per day.
I try to do cardio 45 mins 3x's/week and strength training 3x's /week.
My original weight was 289 back in Oct. 2007, as of 2/17 I was at 261.2 and still don't feel like I'm dieting. I don't miss anything I used to eat that I've cut out!
