Fitness and well being are the effects of habits. I should know. I have lots of habits. Many of them are not particularly skillful. This takes time and patience and practice. I have plenty of time. Not too bad on patience. And the leisure to practice. Besides...this is fun.

Member Since: 3/1/2008

My Goals:
Goal:
Lose 5 pounds.
And then lose 5 pounds. And then lose 2 pounds. And then celebrate!











My Program:
1. Eat in the Mediterranean style
2. Plan all meals and snacks and say No Choice to anything unplanned
3. Schedule shopping and meal prep. Be prepared. Make it a priority.
5. Eat sitting at the table.
6. Log fitness and track nutrients in Spark trackers
7. Use distractions to manage cravings.
8. Weigh every day
9. Read my list of reasons why I want to lose weight every day
10. Exercise every day



Personal Information:
I lost 30 pounds using Spark tools and kept most of it off though I never reached my desired goal. Recently I started to creep back up. So I looked up Cognitive Behavior and weight loss and up popped the "Beck Diet Solution". It is a perfect fit with the Spark tools and the Mediterranean plan. And I am having fun. Fun is very important to me. I live on Outer Cape Cod and part time in the hills of Western Massachusetts. I love being surrounded by natural beauty. I left a successful career protecting land and helping people appreciate and enjoy nature. Now my time is my own to pay attention to wellbeing and fitness when and how I wish. Luxury!


Other Information:
I love companion animals especially my current dog Lilly. My husband is plenty cool too and is supportive of my losing weight. I love the beach and my favorite exercise is swimming outdoors or walking on beautiful beaches with my pooch.

    I will look for one of those frisbees when the pet stores open again -- but gotta say, no matter how many toys Henry has, he likes the ones he finds for himself the best (much like a little kid playing with the carton that the toy came in . . . )

    May your DH return home soon, without running into the virus or a quaranteen!
    Stay safe!

    I HAVE tried filling up the "used" bones with peanut butter etc. . . . but I'm afraid that Henry is able to get it ALLLLLLL out in about 3 seconds. PB may work better in one of his kongs!!!
