VegLilsMoM's Gonna' Do It!!

I am VegLils' mom and we're both working towards losing weight, getting in shape, and improving our health.

In my lifetime, I have lost 70+ pounds at least 5 times, but each time I gain it back. For this reason, it's important that I make a lifestyle change rather than just diet. I started out at 286 pounds, depressed and feeling hopeless, so I joined Jenny Craig to get me back on track since I couldn't get motivated enough to do it on my own. I was about 1/2 way through my weight ...

I started out at 286 pounds, depressed and feeling hopeless, so I joined Jenny Craig to get me back on track since I couldn't get motivated enough to do it on my own. I was about 1/2 way through my weight loss program when I had to quit -- we just can't afford it anymore. In one year, I have gained back 40 pounds!! *ugh*

I just joined Weight Watchers last week because I can afford that at least. I'm hoping to get back on track.

Fitness Minutes: 791

My Goals:
My goals for 2011 are:

1. Continue losing 1-2 pounds per week
2. Increase exercise so I have enough stamina to ride 5-10 miles on my bike.
3. Eat healthier to reduce cholesterol by 100 pts.



My Program:
Food:
Track my food and water intake daily.

Exercise: walk 10-15 minutes daily and exercise on an elliptical 3-5 times per week.

Diet:
Reduce fat and/or replace with only healthy fats and oils. Cut salt intake at least 50%. Drink fewer diet sodas.

Personal Information:
I am 55 years old and realize that in order to live well into my 80's or 90's I must eat right and exercise to stay healthy.

I work at KCI as a Systems Management Server Administrator II (IT) and love computers, gadgets, gardening, Miniature Schnauzers, and cat. My husband and I have 5 children, 10 grandchildren, and our first great-grandchild is on the way.

Other Information:
My daughter is Lillie, who is better known as "VegLils" on Spark. She is AWESOME at helping others to reach their goals.

You know what I don't get? Why don't we see the emoticons above very often? I mean, I can't even tell you how often I have need of a mullet guy, a sandwich with a glass of wine, an ab roller looking machine, a dump truck and drama masks........ not to mention ALL of the international flags. It is pity we don't have any useless emoticons on here.........
