Like so many others, over the years I have let the weight creep up on me. I have been a yo-yo dieter for the last 15 years and can't count the times I have lost weight only to gain it back. I have let myself become addicted to junk/fast food, to the point that eating healthy food is not appealing. I know my tastebuds have to be retrained to enjoy healthy food, and with the help of Sparkpeople I AM GOING TO SUCCEED!!! I especially love the Nutrition Tracker. You just don't realize how poor your nutrition is until you see it in a graph right before your eyes. I was eat up with perfectionism--if I couldn't be perfect in sticking to a plan, I just did nothing. WRONG thing to do. FORGIVE, FORGET AND FORGE AHEAD!!! That's my new motto, and I CAN AND WILL DO THIS!!!!

Member Since: 1/4/2010

My Goals:
I want to feel good again, have more energy, less aches and pains, and lose 40 pounds. I want to break the fast food habit and train my body to CRAVE healthy foods.

My Program:
I am trying to live by the rule "If you bite it, write it, if you nibble it, scribble it" to keep myself accountable for what I eat. I am moving more and doing strength training a minimum of 2 days a week, trying to get in cardio on at least 3 days a week, more when I can.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I'm tired of feeling older than I am. I want to feel younger, have more energy, be able to play with my grandchildren and feel good while I am doing it. I want to eat to live and not live to eat. I have been a yoyo dieter long enough and want to rid myself of that black "need to lose weight" cloud that is aways hanging over my head.

    OK, got my work-out in today, although late. I like working out better in the morning, but my schedule will not allow that right now. But at least it's done. It feels good afterwards.

    What a nice little surprise to find your message--the notice was in my e-mail. Had to chuckle about your haircut. Patience my friend; it will grow. Thanks for the nudge! emoticon

    ........I told my hubby to just stay clear of me for awhile because I was very very grouchy. :( emoticon emoticon

    Today is "Faturday", the one day a week I allow myself to go out for dinner and eat what I want. Not in excess, but what I want. The last 2 weeks it has been Mexican. Tonight, it might be Long Horn for a Flo's Filet. Depends on what my tastebuds are doing at 6 p.m. :)

    If you have not tried butternut squash fries, you are missing out. I have butternut squash from the oven just about every day. I love it!!! Cut it up like thin french fries, spray with some olive oil, add some pepper (I like red on mine) and bake. Dip in catsup for the full feel like eating french fries effect. Sometimes I dip, sometimes I don't, but if I do, I use a measured out portion of catsup. Less calories than sweet potato fries.
