Well its the end of August 2012...I'm trying to get back on track and focus on my health/fitness and weight. I just updated my SP page and saw that the last and only Blog I have posted was about goals back in Dec of 2010...WOW! That's a long time ago. I don't think I accomplished any goals in 2011 or 2012 so far. How sad that makes me...

I'm 37 now and have been "obese" according to the body mass index for 15 years now. I hear the longer you're overweight the harder it is to get it off permanently. I don't want to be overweight like my mother and all the other women in my family...I used to be skinny (my whole life up to 22yrs old) and I want to be thin/fit and sexy again. I don't think my husband is attracked to me any more. We hardly ever have sex any more - part of that is that I have absolutely no sex drive - I need to figure out how to fix that too and my doctor isn't any help.

So my ultimate goal would be to weigh 145lbs again but I remember how hard it was just to reach 185 for my wedding back in '09 and I think my starting goal will be 217 down to 170 in 9 months and then we'll set new goals (that will be only 25 more pounds to reach 145...that's a very cool thought) Ok, back on track...current goal is to lose 7 pounds in Sept '12.

I rode my bicycle for the first time last night...I haven't ridden since I was a kid, probably 20 years ago or more (Ugh!). I only went 2.5 miles and thought I was going to die and my body is very sore today. I just have to keep on keepin' on and go work out anyway.

Thanks for listening to me ramble!

    That's a little over 5 pounds a month...slow and steady, very do-able. You can do this if you break it down into the steps you need to take to achieve it. You've done it before. Our bodies don't always lose on our command, but if you persist, it will happen. Persistence always wins.

    welcome back! I think you can stick with it this time if you figure out what is best for you. Small steps are still steps towards your new life journey!

    Welcome back! I struggle with so many of the same things. And while I don't have the issue of the hubby and I not spending any time in the bedroom, I feel constantly that he doesn't find me attractive and it's a terrible feeling. emoticon
    I found that setting small attainable goals has helped me, in fact I just recently started setting an actual 'goal weight' because I was so afraid of failure that I figured I wouldn't put it in writing. However, it's easier than I thought. Baby steps! Good luck girl, you can do it. Keep a positive attitude and that will get you far. Remember we're all here if you need and we're all going through the same or similar things! emoticon
