My Goals:
My primary goal is to create enough structure in my day to get enough exercise, quiet time, play, and sleep. For some reason, that's a huge challenge for me.

Personal Information:
I'm a psychotherapist by profession, a writer by avocation, a reader gardener, swimmer, and seeker. I'm fascinated with hearing the stories of people--what they communicate in words and in the silences between the words.

Other Information:
My favorite quotes and movies and music change as different authors and artists and wise friends. My most self-sustaining quote right now is a recent compliment by my husband: "You leave a wake of calm wherever you go." What he failed to add is that his presence is a daily source of calming for me! But I carry the image as a mantra, a living gift.

I reached my goal weight VERY slowly, over the course of a year. Exercise is crucial, of course.

I don't track calories, but I do focus on nutrient-dense foods. Because hunger can awaken me through the night, I have a ritual bedtime snack --a bowl of sherbet, glass of chocolate soy milk, whole wheat toast with peanut butter. It's easier to stay on course when I'm anticipating a small reward at the end of the day.

Monitoring and maintaining is the biggest challenge now. Gaining a couple of pounds is predictable during a vacation or holiday, It can be discouraging (I'm afraid to start gaining again), but so far I haven't had a serious gain.

I never thought I'd get back to anything close to my ideal weight!
Again, my approach has been slow and steady, with no sense of deprivation or hunger--focusing on lifestyle choices instead of losing weight.

The Spark community provides great encouragement!
