I'm thinking...I'm thinking!
I feel very elated to have reached my SP goal weight, and have been maintaining at or just below goal for some time now.
But I feel kind of at loose ends. I don't want to slog around with no where to go...no definite path to follow. So I felt I needed some help for a new goal plan.
I've had at least two helpful responses so far on my call for help.
First things first and probably most important was submitted by SUZ (SUZWARNR): To Maintain. Yes! Of course. But alas, easier said than done...and a lifetime road map is needed.
Linda (RAYLINSTEVENS) asked how I felt, since weight is just a number on the scale. Yes, I'll have to think about that some, since I've never been exactly at this point that I can recall. Elaborate, Linda or someone.
I'm also thinking about my BMI and where I stand on that. Seems I am on the high end of Normal Weight (24.9) Getting to midway would surely be a logical and feel-good goal. Right?
I really want to tone up more...I think I am doing pretty good as my fitness minutes are at least presentable for someone my age: If necessary, I could do more, I'm sure.
Most days (except Sunday) I do from 30 minutes to 1 hour of fitness. My program:
*Kettlebells/sculpt/cardio mix twice a week
*Walking and machines at the Y several times a week
*Water Aerobics,Zumba and Yoga sporadically as it works into my schedule.
My smaller wardrobe of clothes is definitely fitting nicely...but I still have a couple outfits that I'd like to fit better. And how about some new clothes? Now, that could be a goal!
But there must be more to it than that.
All suggestions and advice are on the table.
Still, I'm thinking. Am I over the top?

Michael flew out from Little Rock to Guanajuato, Mexico on Saturday. The last of our four children to leave, whose visits over the July 4th holidays couldn't have been more wonderful. Two others left earlier in the week for Dallas and OKC.
What would warm the hearts of parents more, whose grownup and mostly far away children return home to mom and dad for that special time --- so that we all could be together again in one place at one time?
Three sons and one daughter with their spouses (except for one) and three grandkids, were here for fun, food and festivities. So here they are:
Seated: Son-in-law Mike, son Dan holding Pierre, grandson Elliott (with the face)
Top: Son David, Dad, son Michael. (Grandson Joe not pictured).
Seated: Granddaughter Evin between daughters-in-law Rhonda and Vicki.
Top: Daughter Debra and happy Mom
How did my food and fitness challenge go? Well, while not perfect , with more than a little tweaking on my calorie range and doing some exercise most days, I weighed in today just a few ounces above goal---almost the same as before the July Fourth celebrations began over a week ago.
