The weight's been creeping back on, particularly after I had my gall bladder out last summer. Time to stop gaining and move the extra off before it gets too settled and happy.

update 1-19-2013
Again. I'm back at a point where the extra weight is very uncomfortable. I have tried eating mindfully without careful watching, but that only works for awhile for me. So I guess I'm back watching carefully, stopping when it's time to stop and really, I need to pick up my exercise program again. My experience is that I need to do both food management and exercise for successful weight management. I just have to do it.

Update 1-3-2010 -- My weight loss has been stalled for a while now, so it's time to get back to concentrating on eating carefully and making sure I get my exercise in. I've joined the bootcamp team for the January bootcamp and I am ready to roll. My first goal is to track my food, even the foods I don't want to admit that I'm eating and to get my exercise. Then I will fade the foods I shouldn't be eating as much of.

Update 7-8-2009 -- since January (before I joined SP) -- I've lost 10% of my body weight! I still have 12 pounds to go in my current goal and I'm going to do that, but I do feel better and my clothes fit better and I know I'm heading in the right direction.

About my dog, he's a Welsh Corgi. He has a tail, so we pass him off as a Cardigan. But since he's a rescue, we don't know for sure -- he could be a Corgi-Corgi mix. He's a great walking partner. And those are my hands and legs in the background -- I was quite a bit thinner then than I am now.

My Goals:
I'd like to lose 30 pounds. I've weighed less and I like the look, but maintenance was fiercely hard.

"If it is to be, it is up to me."

My Program:
I'm eating less and exercising more. I've cleared all the foods that call to me from the kitchen. I work out at the gym, I walk to work when I can, I walk the dog. I'm trying to eat real food and less processed foods.

It's working for me!

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I lost 90 pounds during 2002-3. In 2005, I hurt my back and my exercise program came to a halt. I was just building that up again when my gall bladder announced it was full of stones. Post surgery, I put on about 15 pounds (ok, maybe 20 pounds). So now, I want all that gone. And then some. Life was more comfortable when I was thinner.
