Working towards a healthier me

I finally have gotten tired of the blob that has been accumulating around my waist and want to do something about it. I finally have gotten tired of being winded by walking up the slight hill by our house and want to do something about it. I not only want to do something about it but I also want to maintain a healthy me.

It's time to continue my introduction. I have made a lot of progress over the past 4.5 months. The blob around my waist has dwindled. My legs no longer rub ...
I finally have gotten tired of the blob that has been accumulating around my waist and want to do something about it. I finally have gotten tired of being winded by walking up the slight hill by our house and want to do something about it. I not only want to do something about it but I also want to maintain a healthy me.

It's time to continue my introduction. I have made a lot of progress over the past 4.5 months. The blob around my waist has dwindled. My legs no longer rub together. My clothes don't fit (lol). My biggest challenge now is defining and redefining my goals. I still have a significant amount of weight to lose, but I'm finally getting to the point where I need to set goals for me. I look forward to being able to actually name those goals in the next weeks.

I reached my goal and actually am a pound below that goal but this page wouldn't let me do that. I am now having to redefine my goals as maintenance and actually just want to stabilize and not be petrified of regaining the weight. I've had some really nice compliments on how I look especially my lovely muscles -- a true compliment when the zumba teacher commented on how good I looked:)

I've been spending the past several months attempting to maintain. My success has been mixed. I haven't gained weight; but I have continued to lose weight and am now 10 pounds below where I wanted to end up. It's a struggle to put the breaks on. This fall has been particularly horrid with stressful events; the good news is that I have used exercise to dissipate the effects of stress as opposed to eating. However, the end result is losing more weight. I am truly committed to this healthy lifestyle journey for the long haul...so I know that it will workout. I'm rapidly coming up on my 1 year anniversary on sparkpeople. It's amazing to see what has happened in the past year.

And now for another update. I haven't stepped on the scale for several months or tracked my food mostly because I had continued to lose weight. Recently I have been engaging in bouts of emotional eating. At least I am aware of the emotional eating. The good news is that my clothes still fit. However, understanding me as a healthier me means that I need to view myself as being a size 2 or 4 and I don't yet - I look at myself and still see myself as a size 14...so I'm not there yet...but I still am working toward a healthier me.

Newest update: I'm struggling and have been in a variety of areas - trying sparkcoach to see if that moves me along because I need to move along.

Further in the story: sparkcoach perked me up, but I can't afford it at this time. Was invited and joined the 5% challenge team. It's sparking me a bit. Hardest for me right now - getting on the scale and creating a SMART plan. I'm balking and I have to move on.

"A reminder you have indeed had a great year....this coming 12 months whether from today or from Jan 1 will be full of new opportunities for you as well. Keep up the good work for you. It's always a balance, the location of which sometimes is challenging. Keep on going. " --CFMOSS

How did you know that that was exactly what I needed to hear today?! I have been frustrated because in the past two months, I have put back on almost everything I lost since Jan. 1st. I am still 10 pounds down from there though. I have to get a handle on this quick. And I am scared that I can't do it. But deep down, I know that I can. I have to find the balance and keep on. And even though I put some of the weight back on, IT HAS BEEN A GREAT YEAR. I have learned and been through so much and I wouldn't trade that for anything. emoticon emoticon
