In all the years I have spent here on Spark, I have finally learn one thing : being kind and forgiving to myself is the way to finally lose the weight and keep it off.

Not putting so much pressure to be perfect makes it easier to climb back on the horse.

Fitness Minutes: 47,718

My Goals:
I am making small changes. I want to lose pounds and never come back here (here being weighing 275 pounds)

My main focus is being in control of all those wonderfull fast sugars.


My Program:
- eat as much veggies and fruits as I can in a day
- Make sure I get plenny of protein in my breakfast and lunch
- walk as much as possible (try and improve total distance walked each month)
- keep a positive attitude
- Be kind to myself and not make myself feel guilty

- I also instated a cash reward program for myself. Cash that I can spend on myself without judgment. No need to ask if I should, if I really need it or if I may have something at home that could do.

When I weight, for 4 consecutive days :
- under 270.......... $40.00 - Done Jan 19th 2019
- under 265.......... $40.00
- day 1 : March 8th 2019,
- day 2 :
- day 3 :
- day 4 :
- under 260.......... $60.00
- under 255.......... $40.00
- under 250.......... $70.00
- under 245.......... $40.00
- under 240.......... $80.00
- under 235.......... $40.00
- under 230.......... $90.00
- under 225.......... $40.00



Personal Information:
I am 54 (not for long) married with 2 grown girls. Soon to be a grandmother
I am a developper who still goes to school to improve my craft. Will probably have my Bachelor's degree in IT Engineering by the time I am 60. who knows I may go for my Master's! before I'm 70? We'll see...

If anything, I have learned to appreciate what I have and not worry so much about things I can't control.


Other Information:
I like renovating, sewing, music and baking. But right now School is my hobby.
the dresses on the wedding pics where made by me.
It was a big project. 4 dresses, 4 pants and 4 shirts. But it was worth it!
