Slowly Losing Weight and Getting Healthy


I'm making this a lifestyle change not a diet!

Dieting always leads to NOT dieting which equals gaining it all back. I am done with that!
It took years to develop my bad habits and I expect it will take years to develop my healthier habits.
I am working on it! I will never give up!
I will get down to a normal weight!

In 2013 I will weigh in EVERY Wednesday.
I will try to lose every week. It's OK when I don't!

I am enjoying hiking most Fridays with my hubby. We are doing about 4- 12 miles each time. We have explored some amazing places!

I go to the gym twice a week. Most weeks.

I have a chronic bladder condition that sometimes limits my activities. I will not let it stop me!

Veggies have become a much bigger part of my diet and hubby, who does most of our cooking, is on board with this change. He has perfected a yummy garlicky veggie mix that we have most nights with dinner and I have in my lunch the next day. Now I am mixing them in with scrambled eggs too.

I still struggle with junk food, especially in the evenings. I need to work on that!

I like to explore, hike, garden and travel.

There are many wonderful hiking trails not far from my home in Tacoma that I visit often.
I also hike at Mount Rainier every chance I get.
Now that fall is here we are hiking around North Bend. We are loving exploring the trails there.

I don't use Facebook anymore, so the link you gave me won't work. Do you use Flicker?

Thanks for the goodie for my birthday. I see you on the friend feed every once in awhile and wonder how you are doing. Still hiking, I see and that is great. I miss the pictures though. Why did you cut back on SP?

I know sometimes I felt like it wasn't helping and I was just wasting my time here, but I remember when I quite because of a job that would not let me come to the site and there just wasn't any time to get here. My stress was way high and I was eating junk and so I quit and for some reason, I did not gain my weight back but I didn't lose any either. I got a lot of crap from the people that worked there and absolutely no support unless you call the negative side of it support.

Now I have a job that is very active and I am losing about 1 pound a week and I'll gladdly take it. The people are great and I am real happy with it. I came back to SP when I left the last job I had a long time ago. I was so glad to be away from the negative attitudes and games of it all and just be away from the 9-5 world and SP was my ace in the hole.

I am 10 pounds short of onederland and am working to lose it as fast as I can. Going to see the doctor on the 26 and don't expect to have lost that 10 pounds but sure would like to. Its an aim for sure.

Hope to see you around more soon. Have a great one. emoticon
