10/13/18 - 200.8
10/4/18 - 201
9/26/18 - 201.8 It is such a struggle to get back down to 199. I thought I would see what would happen if I ate intuitively. Well I found out I need to consciously plan my eating for the day or I will fall back into the unhealthy habits that made me get to 257. Maintenance means continuing with my healthy eating habits for the rest of my life if I want to stay healthy, which I sure do!

9/12/18 - 202.8
9/1/18 - 211.4 - well I have to get back to reality

12/5/17 - 200.2 - I feel like I'm back on the road to my goal of 199 by 12/31/17. I want to start off the 2018 New Year weighing less than 201.2!

12/2/17 - 203.2 disappointed

9/22/17 - 199.6
9/1/17 - 205.2 It is shocking I bought a new accurate scale. I checked my records of weight loss and gain for the last 34 years since 1983. I have had 17 years in which I lost weight from the beginning of the year and 17 years in which I have gained weight since the beginning of the year. From 233 in 1983 up to 257 in 2005 then down to 183 in 2011 and this year I'm back up to 208.6 . That is 25 pound gain after having lost 74 pounds. If I can get it back to 199 by the end of 2017 I'll be happy!!!
I can say I'm maintaining since I've kept off 19% of my body weight but 23% would be better!

3/29/15 - 189.4 - i feel so fantastic! I'm not giving into my self sabotaging. This lose has come at the perfect time before Easter. It gives me strength to resist the candy. I am going to ignore the silliness my husband has of buying the Easter bargains after the regular Easter to give them to the grandchildren on our Orthodox Easter. I'm not going to buy anything myself - nothing!!!

10/31/13 - 190.4 is this awesome or what?
10/29/13 - 192.6 I am where I want to be.
9/27/13 - 195 - eating to live
9/17/13 - 196.2 I'm working toward getting back to my favorite weight.
8/11/13 - 200.4 - Reality check - having too much company for the last week and just eating what everyone else does: not being able to exercise in a pool and being too far away from a Curves.
7/1/13 - 196.2 - my temporary goal is to stay under 200 while I am, cooking, cleaning and entertaining the whole family and guests at our beach house.
6/15/13 - 190.4 - I reached my favorite weight 189.8.6/13/13
6/9/13 - 194 - I am struggling just to stay below 195 now. My maintenance anniversary is coming up on 7/2. I'm not even staying the same as when I started this year. I am 7.6 lbs. more already.
5/11/13 - 190.8 - I am learning how to use the new I-pad my children have given me for Mother's Day tomorrow. This way I will be able to log onto spark-people more often and remind myself of my daily goals.
1/25/13 - 191.8 - My 6 year anniversary with Spark people. On 1/1/13 I weighed 2.2 lbs less than I weighed on 1/1/12 - I achieved my goal for 2012. Now in 2013 I want to stay the same.

10/26/12 - 191.8 - I have joined the Maintenance and Transition to Maintenance team to get help and advice on how to stay at my original goal of 187. It has always been hard for me to keep the weight off once I got to the point where I was aiming for. 183 would be ideal, but I will be happy to stay anywhere in the 180's. That is the idea to finally be happy with what I weigh for the first time in my 65 years - 51 years have been spent "dieting" to get to this achievable number on the weight chart according to my height and frame. Enough already! Stop the insanity! 187 is my personal happy balance point.

9/17/12 - 194.4 - I am going to get back to my daily routine after having a fun summer. I want to at least weigh the same as when I started 2012 not more.

5/22/12 - 183.5 - This is the lowest weight I have been since 1984 when I was going to Diet Workshop.

1/1/12 -189.6 - I want 2012 to be a positive year for me. Being positive about my weight is something new to me. I changed my Spark ID to NEWNANCY 2012 so I can remind myself everyday I have reached my goal. Now comes the very hard work of keeping it there. It has taken me 4 years with Sparkpeople to reach a weight that I am comfortable with. By keeping track of my weight daily, monthly annually and writing down my private feelings in a journal I can look back and see where I am, where I was and where I want to be.
