I ate a piece of Peanut Butter pie, I did not regret it, I did not feel guilty, I got right back on program with my Nutrtion and my Fitness.

Interesting side benifit regarding my fitness and weight loss journey. I now have a life and am finding it difficult doing all the documentation regarding the journey.
I feel better than I have in years, I still have stiffness and pain but have found out the exercising, particularly Tai Chi has helped ease it some. I am rarely hungry, in fact I have to remind myself to eat!!! This is particularly important because I take insulin.
I have had some bad experiences along the way, formerly I would turn to my comfort foods but instead I do something positive that makes me feel great about my self. If I can do it, you can do it.
Here is what I will look like when I am at maintenance! It is My head from my 70's birthday grafted on to Elizabeth Taylor's body. She has always been a hero of mine, not her lifestyle (didn't like that)
, but the fact she has "material things and wealth" but still had a weight problem, just like us "normal folks"

I have always considered my self optimistic, but when I listen to my self talk, I realize I am only talking the talk, not walking the talk. Now is the time to change, forget about the past, dear and move forward, there is no way to change the past but you can and you will change your self talk about it. All the mistakes and shoulda, coulda, wouldas are over. Plan for today and the future. Live in the now. This will help to change your nightmares also, the past is OVER.
I will practice positive self talk and quit beating myself up for things that I can't control or do over. You are a beautiful person, who is kind, considerate and empathetic. Your mission is to continue to help others, but put yourself first. If you do not have the energy and motivation, there is no way you can help yourself, let alone others.
Be kind to your self and continue your highly motivate journey and continue to have fun on the way. Look at this time as a beautiful journey and you will come out way ahead of where you are now. This can be done and you will do your maintenance with dignity and grace.
I love you Edna,
Thank you for starting the journey and smell the roses along the way.
This is how you will look! For my 70th birth day my nephew gave me this picture, he photo shopped my head onto Elizabeth Taylor and for my 75th birthday (or long before) I will thank him for the motivation to start my positive journey. Hey I can look like this, it is possible.

I have given this a great deal of thought and I still believe it is to get healthier, I have many chronic diseases and I just want to feel better and look better. I have been heavy for a long time and had almost given up the idea of loosing weight, all my doctors nag and nag at me, and I do need to get the weight off of my bones and muscles, in order to try and walk better. I want to be able to give up my wheel chair and control my pain, I have been to the pain management people and they have stuck so many needles and injected my spine and did Radio Frequency to ablate a lot of the nerves to my back, they have worked so hard, so it is time for me to do my part. I am still working the whole program, eating better and exercising a lot and am still only down 3 pounds in 5 weeks, I think it should drop more, but I am not giving up this time. I will prevail until I get to maintenance, then I will work hard not to gain any back.
