Cheryl,
You have made so much progress. You are extremely insightful and that is one of your greatest characteristics in helping you to achieve and maintain your goals.
You have reminded us of some of the keys to living a healthy lifestyle. You don't have to do it alone, and although reaching out, when you are usually the go to it person is difficult it makes it much easier to have the support of those who understand the journey. Yes, it is possible to eat pretty much what you want in a mindful and purposeful way. (portion control).
Exercise is something that often needs to be experimented with a bit, but after a time it seems to grow on you like the proverbially moss.
One of the keys to success is "going with the flow".
Keep doing what works, and re-evaluate periodically as needed. Your attitude is a good reminder for all.
Fluctuations will occur. It is a natural process.
Do what works and you will continue a healthy track.

Teresa

IRISHEI,
emoticon Tracking isn't easiest at the best of times. Your determination to remain accountabile through some challenging times is fantastic. (personally, I put the tracking off until the very last thing. Officcially. I note what I eat, but it is one of my challenges to actually enter it into the trackers)
emoticon You have learned one of the most important components of a healthy lifestyle. You can, within reason, choose to eat anything you would like. It is all in having the discipline to maintain the portion control. You are doing a great job!
I am glad to learn that your sinus infection is better, and you are getting back to your routine.
Have a good afternoon!

Teresa

I have learned so much in the last few weeks, since I joined this team.
1. I am convinced that without the help I received I would have been headed for the yoyo yet again.
2. Learning what to say and being prepared with healthy foods, I can go to a party and still be comfortable with my nutrition choices.
3. Eating healthier foods is a lot more than just counting calories. Choosing a healthier lifestyle helps me feel so much better. I feel my body is getting the proper nutrition's, to help me stay healthier and stronger.
4. Traditions, like Christmas, are harder for me to eat healthy, it's hard for me to pass up the traditional foods that I have had for years..I have learned I can take a bite of something instead of filling my entire plate.
5. Exercise, is good and something I have learned to love.
Plateau's.. it's not as important to learn how to break it as it is to learn how to maintain what you already have.
Most important..it is ok if I fall off the wagon from time to time, I know I can pick myself up and climb right back on.

Of course you can! Your mind set is excellent.
Please just remind us when you reach your goal weight, and we'll celebrate it big!


I've learnt not to worry about things I don't have control of.
I also learnt that I'm in command of my healthy choices.



I'll celebrate 10 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2014!

One thing I learned is I could track my food, even on Christmas eve and day. I just kept my little paper in my purse and marked it down and then transferred it to my 3 month ww tracker and spark nut. when I had a chance those day.
I only had 1 cookie (shock to me) on Christmas day.
That night attending another family function, I did
have 2 small little tiny, cookies there and only water to drink. (-: So, I found out I could do this.
The only thing lacking in the past week was my exercise routine, which was way down. Having a sinus infection and laryngitis zapped me of the energy I normally have and use.
Today, I am back to my fitness after 50 class and hope to MOVE and get back to normal if I can. I CAN and I will do it! Off to class now. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
