Keep looking ahead, but remember the lessons of the past. Forgive yourself for your failures and setbacks, pick yourself up and move on. Everyone faces challenges--everyone. One of mine happens to be a life-long struggle with my self-image and my size. I can change, I can work, I can succeed.

Member Since: 1/3/2010

Fitness Minutes: 10,268

My Goals:
1. Achieve and maintain a healthy BMI.
2. Incorporate cardio and strength training into my life at least 5 days a week.
3.Focus on my goals as an entire person, and not fixate on my weight.

My Program:
At this point, I am:
1. Starting fresh. You can never start over, but you can start from here.
2. Setting short, medium and long term goals.

Personal Information:
Last year, I took a major leap of faith and moved 1300 miles from Wisconsin to Texas. It has been a great thing for me--but I love the Tex-Mex food a little too much. Before I moved I adopted a rescue dog, and we walked and walked; I walked off 30 pounds. After 15 months here, I have regained 13 of those pounds, in spite of still walking the dog. I hit my 10,000 steps on my Fitbit about 5 days a week. I know that it is time to take things in hand and concentrate on the things I know how to do: set and achieve small goals, track my food, and measure my servings. Once again, here we go.

Other Information:
I read, play music, quilt a little, scrap and to cook, hate to vacuum. I am the organist at the Methodist church here in town, and direct the choir and the bell choir. I do enjoy small town living, and am trying to adapt to the heat here in South Texas.

    Thank you so much for the lovely compliments on my sampler quilt. I am pleased that you like it. It just took a first place at our Portage County Fair in Ohio. Welcome to the world of quilting. It is a wonderful hobby. I call it "my therapy"....cheaper than a psychiatrist and you end up with something beautiful. I began quilting long ago when most everything was done "by hand". You are beginning at a time when there is so many aids to help. The video tutorials are wonderful and so are the gadgets to help in construction. I wish you good luck with your granddaughter's quilt and many happy hours making it. MJ

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog, "Is This How It Ends?" All encouragement is always appreciated.

    I hope your dad was very proud of that gold star on your forehead. Created quite the image!

    I agree in part with what you said: Sometimes behavior modification is all that is needed. But I think in order to enter and stay in MaintenanceVille, I think some deeper introspection is in order. I am certain that we both had SP buddies who posted many, many pictures of their weight loss, just to come back eight to 12 months later having regained the majority of that. So why then? I don't think it's merely "slipping back into bad habits". I think there is an underlying current to the behavior. But that's just me.

    Congrats on closing in on your goal! That's wonderful!

    All the best as you continue on your journey to better health,
