Looking for the body that I found at 50.... then lost again. I'm now 60 and need to lose 100 pounds again. Things are going well since January 1st. Joined a gym, tracking on my Fitbit (thanks Santa) and working with a nutritionist. Lost 10.4 pounds in January. I set a 25 pound initial weight loss goal. I plan to attain that by March 5. Came close- I was 206.8 yesterday morning, 20 pound loss (March 9). New goal is 199 by March 31. It's March 31st and I just weighed in at 197.6! Next goal is 180 by June 6. It's June 6 and I'm at 184. Didn't make my goal- but made progress! Going for 174 by July 4! August 13: 172 pounds. Steady progress- 56 pounds gone 😊 150 by my birthday in two months is probably a little unrealistic. But I'm going to try! September 10: been a little less focused. Weighed in at 171.2 today. Time to focus! Almost my birthday... weighed 164 today (October 15), down 64 pounds since Christmas. It’s New Year Eve and I’m still 164. Time to kick it up a notch or two in 2018. February 14, 2018- wore my 21 year old red dress- 157 pounds It’s July 12, 2018- 152 pounds. Much healthier! November 10, 2018- back up to 158. Still have 20 pounds to lose 😩

My Goals:
My goals:
1. To feel and look better!
2. To sleep better at night because I don't have to wake up to turn over.
3. To reach my goal weight by September 2015 and then STAY THERE for the rest of my life!

My Program:
I'm eating three balanced meals a day and two small snacks, five fruits and veggies, calorie range of 1200-1500 and doing some kind of cardio EVERY DAY! I still need to get better at strength training- so I'm thinking about joining a gym.

I'm from NJ. I've been married for 39 years and I have a fabulous 30 year old daughter (and now a son-in-law) and I love baseball (Go Yankees!) and ballet.

    Thank you for reading my Obsession blog. I am glad you enjoyed it. Wishing you the best on your journey. We know we can do this because we are smart celery sticks. I was going to say cookies, but I am avoiding those right now!
