Eat to Live, not Live to Eat

Finding out that I am pre-diabetic has re-empowered me to lose weight. I do not want to go on meds. My Doc is also not happy with my cholesterol or triglycerides either. I want to become healthy again and the first step is to change my lifestyle.

I joined 2015 5% Winter Challenge as a way to start getting healthy again. External motivation and being responsible for a team effort will help keep me on track.

My Goals:
I am in the process of losing my "baby fat" Even though my youngest is 24+, I never lost the weight gained from him & his older brother.

My weight loss goal for the 2015 Winter 5% Challenge is 12 pounds. That's 3 4# bags of sugar!!


My Program:
Tracking Tracking Tracking. Portion control and being mindful of the type of foods I eat rather than just the calories. Also have added some low impact exercises to help with overall loss and health. Will be adding some plant based meals from the Engine 2 Diet to my weekly meal plan.

Personal Information:
A New Englander by birth, I have lived in NJ since 1971. I share my home w/ my husband of 40+ years.

Other Information:
Hopefully in the next 12-24 months will be living in the Carolina's. Not sure if North or South yet, will figure it out after we sell our NJ home.

Hi Brenda, lol I think u r very correct lasts weeks weigh in, according to ur scale is indeed far off!!! Hope you have found one u like.

It's hard when the kids move far from home. My. GD and her H are talking. CO. Kinda my fault, I had a few yrs ago moved there, my. GD came out, loved it (well lol she's a small city gal, Denver freaked her out, but I loved it). So yeah, it'll tear both her. Mom's heart and mine, I mostly raised her. Still I want her happy,there r airplanes, Amtrak. I adore riding on trains. Her. Mom would not.

I wish Hon, families still lived in the same area for life.

I love this quote, it reminds me that everyone is unique and beautiful. We don't need to be replicas of famous people or models! Be true to yourself.
