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?


Member Since: 1/18/2009

Fitness Minutes: 139,332

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 use to be a rebel, but in college I "straightened out," became a "sorority gal," and ENDED UP MARRYING A JEWISH GUY!!!! And he was from San Francisco too! My parents thought our wedding was the "wedding of the century…" little be known, I was not sure I was making the right choice in the whole matter of matrimony! !9 years later, the divorce came….

    I have done a tremendous amount of inner work on myself Veronique, for many many years. And I reached a point in my 62 years of age, that little makes me very happy. I have condensed my world to what I want it to be like and right now it is right on target. I don't expect it always to be in line, but I am enjoying the moment and that is what works for me. Hugs my friend, fredie
