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.

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).

Walk in wisdom this day. Pure wisdom leaves us with no question about whether it is a good thing to do.
Walk in wisdom this day, for wise decision, thoughts and actions bring peace to us.
Walk in wisdom, which practices gentleness even with oneself. Be good to you today.
Walk in wisdom, practicing sound reason in all things you face today.
Walk in wisdom that is full of mercy. Wisdom understands who we are, where we are, and the challenge faced in getting where we are going. It does not give a beat down, but lifts up off the ground.
Walk in wisdom. It produces good fruit, making a life of abundance.
Walk in wisdom. It is unwavering, removing doubt and fear.
Walk in wisdom that keeps us from a life of hypocrisy by stabilizing our course, making our path straight.
