Retired Graphic artist, from Springfield Oregon. Truly loved every minute I worked. Have been overweight most of my life. Tried and succeeded to lose weight many times, only to gain it back. I am 71. Mom of 4, gramma of 15, great gramma of 7, (twins born February 1) I expect this journey to "take" this time, my mindset is so different. I am sure not getting any younger, and I want to be and feel healthy and enjoy life. February 4, 2016 I've been at a standstill weight wise the last couple of months. It's ok though, I haven't gained, still eating healthy, still feel motivated, still getting exercise. Getting ready to go on a 3 wk vacation to Hawaii. I'm so excited! March 23, 2016 Had an amazing vacation in Maui and kauai. Tracked my food and didn't gain or loose. Very happy about that. Since then I have gotten off track and slacked on my exercise. Today I'm going to start fresh and continue on my losing journey. I can do this! July 29, 2016 I've not tracked in a long time. I don't want to weigh myself. I have no idea how much I have gained, 5lbs, 10 lbs, ?? I've been struggling to get my motivation back. Started tracking today. I'm willing to get back on track. Feeling depressed over the whole eating thing.

My Goals:
My goals are to live a healthy lifestyle, and have it become a totally new way of life. I would like my old ways of emotional and compulsive eating to become a way that is in my past.

My Program:
I will track what I eat and exercise, in order to be accountable to myself. When I find myself craving and/or binging, I will look inside to find out why. I will seek support and advice whenever I need to. I want to do my best.

Personal Information:
Originally from southern California, born in Pasadena 71 yes ago. Moved to Springfield Oregon 47 years ago. I am retired from being a graphic artist, still like to be creative in my every day hobbies.

Other Information:
I struggled with addictions most of my life. I have been clean and sober for 26 years. I have been in recovery from gambling for 5.5 years. My life has changed for the better through the years, now I just need to focus from compulsive eating. Its about time, I'm not getting any younger.
