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: 159,299

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).

    Yes Veronique, I am eating. In fact I been delving in some of that delicious Halo brand Ice cream lately....My mom use to get stressed, she would lose 10 pounds in a few days. I am the same way. My metabolism must speed up when I get that way.....I am concerned about Lucy Lou and to wait until next Wednesday is a total drag. But that is when the Surgeon is in so I just got to bite the bullet. I asked Lisa to come over tomorrow to help me bathe Lucy Lou...she needs a bath desperately. And yes, I do sense something is not quite right with that leg of hers. I have no idea why she is holding on to Lucy Lou.....I might approach this subject with her tomorrow. I just don't get it. Lucy Lou gets all the love and care she needs with me. I just hate to rock the boat.
