Last 10 pounds to lose

Sunday, December 02, 2012

It has been quite a journey. I have gotten fit and healthy before, but somehow this time it was different. I am trying to figure out why. Part of it is the impetus--my DH worried about me and my health. Part of it is that with my challenging work/life balance and weekly travel schedule, I have no choice but make smart choices for myself. The German cuisine I am surrounded by during the workweek has inspired me to make healthy eating an important component of my life. And now that DH has also decided to eat healthy and get fit, I feel like we have something real and sustainable.

The last 10 pounds. Everyone wants to lose those last 10 pounds, right? I believe that I can do it. I also believe that if I continue measuring myself--food diary, daily weigh in, tracking exercise--that this can be life changing. I want to lose these last 10 pounds, and then never have to lose them again.

There are so many inspiring SP stories, I hope that mine can be one--that I am able to make this change permanent.

    emoticon emoticon I was always a yo yo dieter and could never keep off what I lost, but I have been at my goal weight now since May of 2010. Being on this site tracking and blogging has made the difference. Without the support I have gotten here and the focus on lifestyle instead of weight loss, I would not have maintained the loss. emoticon I recently started to slip again and started to be more active on this site again. I feel so much better when I am living my healthy lifestyle and SP is the support I need to maintain it.

    my sister lost 105 pounds at age 63 by walking 15000 steps a day.

    i lost 44 pounds by giving up grain products and sugary products at age 60.

    i use a salad plate as a dinner plate; i eat with a childs fork. takes your brain 20 minutes to tell your stomach your full. it works.
