My goals: to turn around my eating habits once and for all.
My interests:I love running, yoga, my horse, weight lifting, my children (and husband), a good book, and not necessarily in that order.
I decided to join this site because apparently I can't keep myself motivated alone any more. 5 years ago I lost 100#. Then a few pounds crept on...not to worry...then a few more....starting to sweat....now up to about 18, and I am very unhappy with myself. I don't have family support and none of my friends has ever been thru this, so I am on my own. I was actually doing good - the pounds were coming off and it looked as tho I had a good handle on it - then I got sidelined with a serious stress fracture in my foot. Bye-bye activities......you runners will understand that one. And nobody I am around 'gets' how incredibly stressed-out I am by having to be more or less a couch potato. Over the past year it has been one injury after another. Up til this point I was able to fill the gap with another activity. This time I cannot. I have finally reached a point where I need help from other like-minded folks.
When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you. --Lao-tzu
