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?

Fitness Minutes: 123,822

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:
-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).

Veronique, thank you for being one of my Friday regulars at my “Friday Happy Hour” blog, and for making them a regular part of your Friday afternoon routine.
I am so very happy that they bring a smile to your face, and a giggle from your belly! That is precisely the intention for which they are created, and I welcome and love reading every single one of your comments and feedback. As long as you keep coming, I’ll try my best to keep you rolling on the floor with laughter! I’ll see you next Friday!

Merci Véronique ! J'aime bien aller dans cette région près de Beauvais car elle est très facile d'accès pour moi (je n'ai pas besoin de contourner Paris, je prends simplement la N1 en sortant de chez moi).
Oui, le moustique-tigre est présent en région parisienne. Je dois dire que je ne m'en préoccupe pas trop car je n'ai pas de moustiques chez moi en règle générale (je vis en appartement). Avec ces changements climatiques, c'est fou l'évolution des insectes et des maladies... préoccupant !
Bon dimanche, et bravo encore pour votre perte de poids ! emoticon
