I don't have a goal weight

I am a recovering dieter. I realized some time ago that my measure of success is not about the scale as much as it is about how I feel about myself emotionally, and how I'm feeling physically. I want to feel happy, strong, and energetic, and I want to keep my migraines and hypothyroid symptoms under control. By itself, the number on the scale is meaningless, so I hid my scale away.

I created quite a mess of my body and mind by years of crash dieting and no physical activity. Through weight training, a bit of cardio, recreation, positive affirmations, and a focus on eating lots of whole, mostly organic foods I am attempting to create an environment that promotes a healthy body and mind.

My Goals:
My New Year's Resolutions
2008:
-Be more choosy about food quality
-Pack lunch at least 2x/week
-Stick with lo-carb/paleo
-Train consistently
-No measurements

2007:
-Take the train to work once a week
-Stop using the scale
-Try a new recipe each week

My Program:
Exercise: I like to get some movement in every day if possible. High intensity as well as low intensity movement is important for me. Physical activities I enjoy include
daily morning walks, yoga, pilates, swimming, rowing, basketball, hiking, weight training, plyometrics, elliptical machine, biking (indoor and outdoor).

Nutrition: I don't count calories or weigh and measure foods. I try to eat a nutritionally balanced diet composed of minimally processed, mostly organic foods whenever I'm hungry. I also make room for conventional sweets and processed foods when I want them.
