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?

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:

-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).

"My will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no one's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."
-Elaine Maxwell

What a beautiful thing to say. You are also a beautiful wild flower in a field of weeds! hey that's the best I got, yours just couldn't be toped! God loves you also, and all of us should remember that always, because we don't always act like we deserve love. So love yourself always, because you are loved too. eva

Actually it is best to trim the roses when the sap is still in the roots, before the weather warms. Thanks for visiting my blog! HuGS.

"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it all you might.
Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality.
Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your objective. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
