Though I am on a plateau, people are starting to see the weight loss and asking me how are you doing it?
Fun to reply... hard work in the garden this summer, hard work in the kitchen learning to leave sugar alone and eating more fruits and veggies ... basically eating Mediterranean without the grains [for gluten free for celiac] and emphasizing the Eat to Defeat Cancer foods. Now am developing a plan for hard work on the treadmill and elliptical for the winter months in the cold northern part of Washington state. Next goal is 9 more pounds gone by Christmas morning then an additional 5 pounds by Feb 11 - my 65th birthday. Sharing goals keeps the accountability ever present!

I am motivated by finally feeling weight going - clothes getting looser and then finally NEEDING to get new smaller ones.

I am motivated when I see others who are extreme obese and so ill...I don't want to be sick!!

I am motivated by being with Dear Daughter who is struggling with weight but has overcome her celiac when at home and eats "safely" and has begun walking and doing 5K and just walked her first 1/2 Marathon so now to adjust the eating to Mediterranen Diet which is her Dr's orders. So we read and shop and talk about better eating, Amazing to watch her fill a grocery cart with produce.

The rain has meant no gardening today- so I hit the weights and did some Pilates and then called it an "active rest day"

clothes are getting smaller. need to get back on a diet and start exercising again. Stress has been a major factor in my bad eating habits. I tried on 2 dresses I bought last summer. One was ok, but would look better if I lost a few pounds and the other was way to snug. :(

What motivated me today? Hmmm... so many to choose from. *S*

My furbabies, my SP friends, and then myself. Summed it up quite nicely. *S*

I had a sore throat today. Ugh! I ate a good meal and prayed I wouldn't get worse and then sick. I figured if I go swimming I might raise my immune system. I swam 16 laps. Now I feel really good. My throat feels better. I ate an apple and I'm ready for bed. I had a good day! There's nothing like a good day to motivate oneself.

I hope you all have a great day tomorrow emoticon
