Reminds me of the Miss Piggy diet quote, "Never eat more than you can lift."

I have 10 pics in my gallery



Nameste' Is a Buddhist term. It means "The light in me acknowledges the light in you". In this case we'll amend it to be a "spark Nameste'" it means the "skinny in me acknowledges the skinny in you."

My Goals:
My 50th birthday is February 18th. I will work to lose 5 pounds by then. My next goal will be to lose another 5- 10 by May 29th (my oldest sons 31st birthday), just in time to be slim for summer.

My Program:
Yoga 2-3 times per week.
Zumba at least 2 times per week.
2-3 mile walk once a week.
Eat healthy and track my food. Eat at home most of the time, and out only when I have control over the restaurant.

Personal Information:
I had been in my correct weight range all my adult life. After remarrying 8 years ago- the weight gain started. For the first time in my life I dislike picutes of myself not because I'm too big of a cheeser (smile way too big), but because my lower half and bust look sooo big. Cameras don't lie- so time to get a grip on this eating thing!

Other Information:
I believe mindful eating is the key. The one time I lost a lot of weight in my life I was not actively dieting. I had made a lifestyle change and the wieght just disappeared. I need to find that change again. That weight stayed off over a year- until my lifestyle changed again and all the weight plus some came back. The key of course is permanent change of habits and like all things in life awarness of what you are doing and why.

The weather WAS warmed up here. Now Mother Nature lost her mind and dropped it back down to 40s in the morning (high of 50) and it's projected for the whole week. The weekend was downright miserable and I FROZE on my ride this morning! I swear it's one of the craziest weather years I've ever seen.

Your path to work sounds dreamy! I ride just shy of 5 miles one way, all of it on the streets and and about a third in heavy-ish traffic. I'd like to force myself out to ride more just for fun. ("Force" and "fun" in the same sentence? What's up with that?!) My nonbike goals involve getting back to ST, and finally doing Pilates and yoga, perhaps some tai chi and/or chi gong. Not enough hours in my life! emoticon

Hey, is the weather letting up for you yet? It finally is here - and then I got a flat this morning on the way to work. Gah.

I'd like to be your bike buddy! What exactly did you have in mind?
