Sweaty proof that I'm working hard to get rid of this double-chin and the love handles!










The lumpy backside that I am committed to change. No looking back...(pun intended)

Today is Day One

"Remember: All that counts is how you do today. Take it day by day and those days will add up in the long run."

I'm focusing only on being good to myself TODAY. I know if I am patient and put forth an effort to change for the better what I do TODAY, I will meet my end goal, no matter how long it takes!

My coping mechanism (eating) needs to be changed; the resulting fat hurts me, both figuratively and literally. Overeating has me 60 pounds overweight as of Jan 1, 2014.

My Goals:
Lose 60 lbs of fat.

Friday is my weigh-in day, so my weeks are broken down as Sat - Fri.

Yearly Summary:
Jan: -8.6 lb, -6.75"
Feb: -4.6 lb, -3.25"
Mar: +1.4 lb, no measure
Apr: No idea. Probably gain.
May: No idea. Certain gain.
Jun: gained.
Jul: gained.
Aug: gained. Back to where I started + 5. :-\
Sep:
Oct:
Nov:
Dec:

My Program:
My program is a sound one: Tracking what I eat, paying attention to serving sizes, focusing on eating whole foods instead of processed/pre-packaged foods, and exercising regularly. So why is it so hard for me to follow my own advice?

Personal Information:
I'm 43 and too young to be old and fat. I want to be a confident strong woman instead of a woman withering inside an overweight and unhealthy body.

Other Information:
I must remember to pray every day for God's strength to get me through. I am taking action to restore the athletic body He blessed me with.

There is always plenty of room to get back on the wagon!
I fall off, get on, sometimes three, four times a week.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my page to let me know that you liked the status update about women carrying extra weight living longer than the men who mention it. Certainly, if our eyes truly did shoot daggers, I know many of us would be widows!

I haven't been on SP much lately but I'm trying to get back into it, using the features of the site I find helpful and ignoring the rest. The community is the best part (for me) so it was nice to hear from you. I really liked your status update about not having to do something for the rest of your life; you just have to do it for TODAY. Great stuff!

I hope you are having a great weekend and that you have a terrific week ahead!
