Five years already!

It has been five 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?

Rewarding myself:
-10 pounds:

-50 pounds:

My Program:
- Eat balanced meals, not too restrictive calorie-wise.
- 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.

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).

“Have you started already? Keep it up! Are you getting tired? Don't give up! Did you quit? You can start again! Great accomplishments do not come with big steps; they come with little steps taken in regular installments! Do it and do it again and again!”

En fait, c'est tout l'été qui a été pourri jusqu'à présent ! Nous n'avons eu qu'une seule chaude journée à Paris, et énormément de journées pluvieuses. Presque chaque jour ces temps-ci, une averse est à craindre, ce n'est pas facile de s'organiser pour les randonnées... J'espère que de votre côté l'été est plus clément.
Merci pour l'information concernant les colchiques, je l'ignorais complètement.

"Your body is not an enemy to be conquered and wrestled into submission.
Eat well and exercise because you deserve to be strong and healthy.
Self hate is poor motivation.
Be patient and kind to yourself, for that will carry you through discouragement and frustration."
-Go Kaleo
