I have started and stopped...and restarted and stopped...and restarted again...and stopped. I think I'm finally tired of this song!

I am restarting...again...this time with a better idea of what I'm doing and what to expect; this time with a clearer plan for reaching my goals; this time, for the last time...because there is no more stopping/quitting.

I guess people really do become sick and tired of being sick and tired...I know I have! And I know I can do something about it. This time I mean business!

My Goals:
I actually have goals this time! Yeah...I started this the first time with NO real goals in mind...imagine that. No wonder I didn't get anywhere!


My overall goal is to lose 90 lbs.

My mini-goal is to lose 5lbs/month for 18 months. (I know I am capable of losing more...but I decided to keep the goal manageable.)

Once I meet my ultimate goal in 18 months (or less), I plan to reward myself with a cruise! (I think maybe the cruise is the ultimate goal and the weight loss is the proverbial icing on the cake...I'm not sure yet!)

My other secret goal...the one I have been afraid to say out loud (or write)...

I want to train like a boxer. I don't actually want or plan to box...let some chick hit my pretty face?! Please! I just want to know it feels like to be in THAT kind of shape. Maybe I'll go for it...Maybe.

My Program:
I actually have a plan to meet my weight loss goals this time, too! No, I didn't have one before. Say it with me..."DUH!"

I joined the fitness center at work earlier this month. My son takes classes that go until 5:00 p.m. and I get off work at 4:00 p.m. What could I possibly do for that 1 hour everyday? You guessed it!

A) I plan to go to the fitness center at least 4 days a week. To start out, I will walk on the treadmill for 30 - 45 minutes. Once I become a little more comfortable, I plan to add some strength exercises. There is also a Zumba class on Saturday mornings that I plan to try out. There is also something called Holy Yoga that I plan to try out, as well.

B) I also plan to follow Weight Watchers. My health insurance pays for my participation, so I figured why not. I know I need to make some manageable and LASTING changes to my eating habits and I'm hoping that this will prove to be a valuable & useful tool.

C) Of course I plan

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. Believe me, before I shed 80 pounds I was doing the yo-yo dance. Then, just like you said in your intro I just got sick and tired of being sick and tired. So I did something radical. I changed my lifestyle instead of going on another diet. OK, so an "eating plan" and a "diet" are similar, but with one huge distinction. My eating plan is delicious, sustainable for the long term and the healthiest way I have ever eaten. Whenever I'm tempted to stray I remind myself of the health benefits as well as the weight loss. I have lowered my cholesterol and blood pressure, healed my fatty liver and my acid reflux, and my acne and sore joints. I think that's why I didn't really notice the emerging slender woman... because I was focusing on my health.

    You can totally break your yo-yo cycle. If a former binge eater like me can do it so can you! You've got this.

    Have a beautiful healthy day.

    Our higher power speaks in ways we don't expect, in voices we don't know... sometimes even our own. Thanks for stalking where YOU need to, and finding what your HP has to say to you, in whatever voice!
