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.

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.

Fitness Minutes: 135,792

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:
-10 pounds: new workout shoes and socks on 5/16/15
-20 pounds: new book (an essay in French) on 7/25/15
-30 pounds: Christmas music CD on 12/5/15
-40 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.

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).

I love the word "spectator!" That fits the description of letting go, sitting back and just watch the show! Well not exactly but I am sure you know what I mean. Veronique, you are one heck of a strong lady. And a beautiful one at that. Much love and hugs, fredie
