Love food... But. Love. Me. More!

In 2007 I lost 63 lbs by paying attention to what works for me. Since then I've often lost my way, and I've spent too much time listening to what works for other people, and not enough time thinking about what works for me. As a result, when things didn't quite go to plan, well we all know the story there!

Fast forward to March 22nd 2014 (the day I wrote this). It's time to focus on my physical and emotional needs (eg, stress). Let's see what happens now, shall we?

My Goals:
To Weigh:
Under 300lbs - 07/07/07
Under 290lbs - 28/07/07
Under 280lbs - 07/09/07
Under 270lbs - 27/10/07
Under 260lbs - ?

My Program:
I began losing weight on my own. Occasionally I've also tried various diet clubs. I am presently relaxing the rules...

I simply track what I eat, and keep in mind that I have an issue with eating too much. So I watch my portion sizes.

Other Information:
My ultimate goal is to reach 160lbs and finally sit in the "Healthy" section of the weight table.

I know how you feel about 'listening to others". While advice is good, and welcomed...we all have to do what works for us. Lost 74 in 2010 , and back here to get the 50 I put back on.. OFF! Good luck! emoticon

Learn from yesterday... live for today... hope for tomorrow... The important thing is not to stop Learning... and to not give up... Keep Going... Go... Go

*~ * ~ *~ * emoticon *~*~*~ *~ emoticon *~*~*~ emoticon

Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear... If we believe that tomorrow will be better... we can bear a hardship today...

*~ * ~ *~ * emoticon *~*~*~ *~ emoticon *~*~*~ emoticon

You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world's problems at once but don't ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.

Let your hopes... not your hurts... shape your future...

Feel a Little Good... awhile eating something you shouldn't...
Feel A lot Bad Later... with eating something you shouldn't...

Feel a Little Bad... before or during work out...
Feel a lot Good Later... After working out...

Why not focus on what youíre doing right instead? If you take a step back, learn from it and take two steps forward...

Persistence is key. Accept the fact that you might not make it ~on the first try. In a recent study, only 40% of people who successfully followed New Year's resolutions did it on the first try; 17% of resolution achievers took six or more tries before they got it right Ė but they did get it right...

DO leave room for failure. DONíT expect perfection....

We do this together. I'm hoping to drop 10 lbs this month with simple prayer, eating right and light exercise. Do this with me. emoticon
