I just want to fit into my stuff again

I used to be one of those obnoxious people who could eat anything and never gain weight. I couldn't gain weight when that was the goal even. It's not longer the case and now I really have to start paying more attention to what I eat and what I do.

Other things - I'm in the process of doing a re-write on a book I hope to ultimately get published.

Spiritually - I consider myself a non-denominational pagan. ;)

I am seriously addicted to reading books. It's rare for me to be reading less than three books as a time. I am so addicted, that I recently decided to give in to the audiobook world. The 15 minute commute to work was just "free" time I wasn't reading.

My Goals:
The newest goal (as of 9-25-2014) :

I've managed to stay in goal range for a year, but I have jaw sugery coming up, so I've been trying to stay on the high side of the range.

Attempting the C25K program again. I hate running, but I hate that me knees make it almost impossible to run. If I quit running, I want it to be on my terms. Besides, I signed up for a zombie 5k and I'm scared to death of zombies, so I really have to get my time down so I'm tortured for a shorter amount of time. ;)

My Program:
Tracking my food and workouts.

Trying to extend the amount of time I can live through a cardio workout.

Start finding ways to give myself more time for writing.

Personal Information:
Married for 23 years. We have 3 boys.

The oldest (age 26) is autistic and recently found a job after being out of work for most of last year after a bout of severe depression.

The middle son (affectionately called the boy) is 22 and studying creative writing and music in college. He made the Dean's List spring and this past fall semester. But then to keep us on our toes, was put on academic probation. Hoping for a strong return in the fall.

The youngest is 10. Yes, we did forget how that happens. He loves camping, baseball, basketball, running around, reading, telling stories.

Other Information:
I have alternate realities in my head that I write about. If I could get something published, that would be wonderful, but unlikely. Still going to give it a try though.

I read. My husband says I'm addicted, but I could stop any time I wanted to. Not likely to happen in my lifetime.

I have a feeling you'll get this cooler weather soon. We were very hot last weekend (finally hit 90) and then yesterday, we were never out of the 60s. Two warmer days and we are right back to those 60s. I don't really mind. Fall is definitely my favorite of the seasons.

I prefer my usual Zumba leader. The one we had last night didn't give much direction but at least, for each song, she repeated a series of moves three or four times. I generally caught on by the last time (well, maybe that was more in my head than in actual fact). I did enjoy her music -- it was people like Taylor Swift, Megan Traynor (sp?) and I enjoy songs like that sometimes. Still, one of the reasons I enjoy Zumba is I am in love with the Hispanic oriented music. So, I think I'll stick with my usual leader.

I'm celebrating my 5 year anniversary with Spark People. I've lost 54 pounds thanks to motivating and supportive Spark friends like you! I have some more to lose but am grateful for where I am because of things you've shared during your journey! Thank you so very much for being there!

Thanks for the supportive and encouraging words on my blog. I was thinking about my dad this morning on my walk and it occurs to me that, despite his years as a diabetic and his love of sweets, he went many years without medication and he has not developed those other issues that come with uncontrolled diabetes. His secret probably was losing the weight and staying thin.

I'm going to eat a more defined lunch which should help the constant reaching for food. I'm also planning to make it more veggie oriented and, really, is there a better time of year to be doing that??!

Thanks again!!
