As happens to many, I have fallen off the healthy lifestyle bandwagon more times than I care to count. But this time I am more determined than ever before and am changing the way I live to be what I want it to be rather than what it has been for the last 25 years. This is definitely a life journey that has roadblocks and setbacks. But, I refuse to let the idea of permanent obesity rule me.... I am loving my new more-active lifestyle of exercising nearly every day and eating to live, rather than living to eat. I have a good start behind me and know that I have a long way to go, but I feel better and am happier than I have been in a long time. I look forward to seeing how far I can go!!!!

My Goals:
My main goal is to stay healthy and fit into the kinds of clothing that I like. However, I also want to be entergetic and active as well as a good role model for my three daughters.

My Program:
My program involved exercise at least 6 days per week. I am currently running and/or walking 4 miles, 3 X/week , I lift weights and then walk 2-3 miles, 3X/week. Now, due to the late sunrise, I am doing it all on treadmills at our Local YMCA. I am also eating eating a balanced diet with focus on fruits and vegetables. I allow myself my favorite foods, but in moderation.

Personal Information:
I am from upstate New York and have three very active, athletic daughters who run track and play soccer. My husband is a weight-lifter /former semi-pro football player who stays naturally in shape.

Other Information:
I spend most of my time supporting my children's athletic goals and helping them to reach them. I am just now starting to focus a bit more on myself.

    I saw your November 2013 posting about the trackers and just wanted to pop in to see how you're doing.

    I just joined the 2 trackers and am enjoying the change. But, I am still trying to stay at the lower end of the calorie recommendation.

    That said, I have increased my daily calories about 400 calories and the weight is moving again. I came to let you know that it is working for me.

    You still must do whatever works for you. I go under the thought that the high-end is the max I can eat without gaining? I could be wrong, but at least it gives me a viable calorie range.

    Good Luck to you! You're doing great!
