My body renovation project--from 297 to......?

(08/24/2013) I turned 57 a week ago, which means my 50s are almost in the rearview mirror, with 60 approaching fast.

I've gotten to the point where I accept my size, and don't hate myself because of it now, but I would really PREFER to be smaller, just because it's easier to get around, fit into chairs and cars and bathroom stalls.

I also want to retain my independence and mobility as I get older--and I could really use some more energy too--so here I am, ready to ...

"The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
-Michael Josephson

Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback...it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you."
-Jillian Michaels

Thank you! Your page is so pretty too!

Congrats on the 10 lbs down, that's quite an accomplishment. 10 lbs is HARD. I keep thinking it will get easier if I get a few lbs behind me but it doesn't. Hang in there, you are going to AMAZE yourself!!

Welcome to Living Binge Free! Over three years ago, I recognized that bingeing was my biggest issue, as my meals and snacks were actually okay. I concentrated just on reducing bingeing instead of giving it up entirely. Now it's almost non-existant, though overeating happens sometimes. I support that our team concentrates on that, not on weight loss, though loss has happened for all of our long-termers.

Have a fair and reasonable eating plan, move more, and keep looking to turn your attention to the other concerns of life! A year from now you will be in a much different place.
