It has been over seven years that I stopped smoking, and decided to work on my excess weight.

I have been very successful with the no smoking part, but not so much with the losing weight... I keep losing, then gaining back. And the cycle starts again.

It is time now to re-evaluate what I am doing wrong. I think I stay on a diet that is too restrictive, and when I allow myself a little "break", this turns into several months of over eating.

Raising a handicapped son all by my myself is stressful, but I tend to use this as an excuse to over eat.

So, let's pick up the momentum and see what we can do to get back on track, shall we?

Fitness Minutes: 158,417

My Goals:
Lose weight s-l-o-w-l-y while continuing to stay smoke-free (N.O.P.E = Not One Puff Ever).

Rewarding myself - all new, starting in 2017-
-10 pounds:
-20 pounds:
-30 pounds:
-40 pounds:
-50 pounds:


My Program:
- Eat balanced meals, not too restrictive calorie-wise.
- Watch my afternoon snacks
- Increase my vegetable and fruit consumption.
- Exercise every day, even if this is only 10 minutes a day. I need to keep moving because of arthritis that is getting worse when I am inactive. My new Fitbit will help with this.



Personal Information:
I am originally from France, but now live in Virginia. We go every year on vacation on Lake Superior (in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan) and we love it there!


Other Information:
I recently joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and it has brought wonderful changes in my life.
I love to read (theology and history books) and I listen to classical music (J.S. Bach is my favorite composer).

    Not yet. I have contacted a broker but haven't heard from her. I need to remind her.

    Yes, you did mention to me about your home insurance being cancelled. Were you able to remedy that with another company?

    $400.00 out of pocket expense for the damage this person did. I am bring the car in July 10th for the repair. I am not going through my insurance because it is a high deductible and because I don't have the name of the person who hit me, my insurance will probably go up because they will blame it on me. I hate insurance companies.
