40 Gone 15 To Go!

My weight inched upward over the years. I started sparking 5/10/12; starting weight-256 lbs. By 12/10/12, I weighed 214.5. Then I regressed and gained 7-8 lbs. over Jan. and Feb. On 3/28/13, I retook control; adjusted caloric intake and increased physical activity. UPDATE: 5/10/13. My scale finally inched downward in late April. On May 10, 2013, I weighed in at 216. I also moved my goal weight lower, from 206 to 201.

My Goals:
I saved my old jeans. They are hanging in my closet. I want to wear them again.

Update: March 10, 2013--I am wearing my old jeans!

Update: May 10, 2013--Got back down to 216, so 40 pounds lost for the year and 10 more to go!

My Program:
I did the South Beach Diet (SBD) to jump start weight loss. 12 pounds lost during the two-week 1st Phase of SBD. After that, I shifted to losing 1-2 pounds/wk and increased exercising. Started walking (baby steps) and gradually increased cardio time and distance. Included some light weight lifting (which I used to do and enjoyed).

Update: March 10, 2013--I stopped logging food for two months and ended up gaining 7.5 pounds. Since logging, I've lost 3 pounds. So I learned an important lesson. I need to keep logging what I eat.

Dropping by to say hi and wish you a blessed day and weekend ahead, also want to say emoticon for all the times you have dropped by my blog and left your kind comments, they are always appreciated! emoticon

With spring just around the corner I thought this was a perfect time to share this Poem about springtime. Hope you enjoy....

Sweet Spring

When the gloomy gray sky turns to clear azure blue,
And the snow disappears from the ground,
When the birds start to sing, and our moods start to lift,
Then we know Spring is coming around.
When the first flower bulbs poke their heads toward the sun,
Golden daffodils, hyacinths, too;
When the brown grass turns green, and the wildflowers bloom,
Then sweet Spring makes its showy debut.
Once again we awake from cold winter's pale dream,
As our minds and our bodies revive;
We rejoice and delight in spring's colorful sight;
Each new spring makes us glad we're alive!

Happy Valentine's Day! emoticon

Valentine Smile

On Valentine's Day we think of those
Who make our lives worthwhile,
Those gracious, friendly people who
We think of with a smile.

I am fortunate to know you,
That's why I want to say,
To a rare and special person:
Happy Valentine's Day!

Hope you enjoy the following poem...

We Are Friends

Whether the day is good or bad,
Whether I'm feeling happy or sad,
If I have a need, you’ll comprehend;
You’ll be there to share and be a friend.

Other people may fill my day,
But never in such an important way;
We support each other ‘round all life’s bends,
It feels so good that we are friends.
