I quit smoking two years ago and since that time my weight creeped up and up and I was already overweight at that point. time to get control! I began my healthy eating journey on Friday, March 8th. Once the weather improves a bit more I will get back to walking and plan to incorporate some yoga into my life. That's it for now.

My Goals:
Ideally I would like to reach a weight of somewhere between 145 to 155.

My Program:
I love fatty foods, fried, buttered, sauced...you name it. I have said bye bye to these foods and am working on convincing myself I hate them. Yuck, blech, ewwww! Eating lighter and healthier and keeping my calorie intake to 1200 to 1500 per day. Plan to start walking and doing some Yoga.

Personal Information:
I'm from Ontario, Canada and hate Winter...go figure. I want to live in a jungle.

Thanks everyone for reading and commenting and thanks for noticing that Luisa lol. I do think I will keep it at 195 though because if I kept it in kg I would contstantly be having to google the conversation. People can just think I carry my weight extremely well emoticon

You don't look a 195 kg, I think you mean 195 lbs! :D
Believe me, living in a paradise island is not all is supposed to be! (I have been living in one for the past 17 years and I expect to go to live in Ontario by mid summer...)
Good luck on your journey
