Well, I'm a year behind schedule. I was to have been at my goal by now, but all that has happened is that I gained ALL MY WEIGHT BACK !! - and I'm back at the beginning of my journey again. Somewhere I made a U-Turn and couldn't find my way back to the good habits I was developing.

I'm sad, disappointed in myself and disgusted. I have no one to blame but myself. I guess I still haven't learned that food is NOT a substitute for dealing with my emotions and I guess I truly am an emotional eater.

SO - I need to be done beating myself up and START OVER again. I have alot to look forward to - two new grandbabies this fall -- I want to be around to enjoy them as they grow up. I want to feel better about myself. I need to be strong.

I vow to start tracking my food again and to re-start an exercise program. I will be mindful about what I eat and not give into temptations.

Crossing my fingers and making a wish...........HERE I GO !

Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
Dance like nobody's watching.
Sing like nobody's listening.
Live like it's Heaven on Earth.

My Goals:
I want to:
Live Healthy
Live Longer
Look Better
Love Myself
Be more Confident
Love my life
Laugh more

My Program:
Using a combination of healthy, low calorie foods and exercise to improve my life. I'm trying to eat a well blance diet and pay attention to things like sodium. I've never been that aware before of exactly what I am eating. I realize that balance isjust as important as counting calories.

Personal Information:
I'm living in Minnesota, retired since June of 2004. Married with three grown children. Gardening keeps me busy in the summer and scrapbooking is a fun project for the cold months. I've been overweight all of my life - never finding the key or understanding to be a thin healthy person. Emotions ruled my eating. I am now trying to deal with emotional issues directly and not covering up and numbing myself with food. I'm feeling better already !

Other Information:
I am trying to be patient and not in a hurry to lose all of this weight. One pound at a time will work just fine. I am making changes that I want to last for a lifetime as I look forward to a better future. My husband and I want to travel and have fun with our retirement. I also want to be healthier to enjoy the grandchildren I hope to have one day.

    I’m the new proprietor at the “150 or Bust” team diner. I’d love for you to stop by and visit. Maybe you’ve been gone a while. Come on in and have a cup of coffee and get to know some old friends, maybe make some new ones. Hope to see you soon!

    Nancy, welcome back!! I've been at it a year and still haven't reached goal. So stop beating yourself up and take it one day at a time. You know that you'll find plenty of support here. I just can't seem to lose the last 10 lbs. So I know that you are hurting. Just keep your chin up and you'll make it. Glad to know that you are back. Pat

    Hi, Nancy, just wanted to see how you are doing. Are you still active in SP? Haven't seen you post any lately or maybe you are posting on different threads. Any way, hope you are doing OK.
