Eating Positively and working on me

I've had a lot of trouble losing weight. Just trying to drop some weight to improve mobility.

I'm eating more along the lines of the Mediterranean way of eating. Based on a book titled "mediterranean prescription". I've read a few books on the subject and it's less of a diet and more ...

My Goals:
1. To blog everything I eat. Good or bad.
2. To drink at least 64oz of water a day.
3. To only weigh myself ONCE a week.
4. To finally have a healthy weight and maintain it.

My Program:
I am eating the Mediterranean Diet way. Following the Maintenance and not trying to lose too much too fast.

Exercising upper body and walking as much as my knees allow me.

HOPEFULLY, joining the Y to Aquacise.

(¯`♥´¯) .♥.•*¨`*♫.♥
.´*.¸.•´♥ Welcome back to Spark People!

One thing I would suggest is: Keep collecting Spark Friends like candy!! It is calorie free and they always give you something to "chew on"!!

You can just "friend" them...no need to ask. We are friendly and don't bite!

You can find motivation and inspiration from everyone here, even those that are struggling (because you know how they feel!!) Welcome new people, Join teams, blog, join challenges, blog, be excited, blog. And did I mention: blog? The future fabulous you will want to look back at your journey and will want to encourage others!! When the excitement wanes (it WILL!!) put down your pom poms and practice your"Power Pose" in the background, (but don't leave and don't do any damage) and wait for the tide to turn...pick up your oars and keep rowing.

If you want to know what Power Posing is, see this link:

You can do this!!
