Determined to succeed

I'm a mother of 3. My high school sweetheart and I married in 1994. We had our first child when I was 20, shortly after we were married. During pregnancy I gained over 100 pounds and have struggled with continued weight gain ever since. I'm in my 40's now and am determined not to spend the next stage of my life obese and unable/unmotivated to keep up with my 3 kids.

I'm a mother of 3. My high school sweetheart and I married in 1994. We had our first child when I was 20, shortly after we were married.

I'm in my 40's now and am determined not to spend the next stage of my life obese and unable/unmotivated to keep up with my 3 kids.

Keeping track for easy access (monthly):

(July 10, 2012) Recalculating my weight since I bought a new scale and it's showing I'm weighing about 10 lbs more than my old scale (256.4 lbs). This one is digital though, and the other one is probably 15 years old, so I'm guessing the new one is closer to what I actually weigh. ;o)

2012

August 7, 2012 weigh in 250.4
September 10, 2012 weigh in 249 (went up and down all month) =/
October 7, 2012 weigh in 246.2
November 4, 2012 weigh n 242.8
December 3, 2012 weigh in 243

2013

January 7 weigh in 249.6

July 2015
Revisiting SP and trying to get back on track. Almost back at my highest weight again =( Joined my first Team Challenge and am totally loving it, and all the support from my awesome team mates.

My Goals:
Daily Goal:
I will stay within the nutrition guidelines set out for me. I will exercise each and every day in some form.
Monthly goal:
To increase my levels of activity and make sure I'm finding the right kinds of exercises to keep me interested.
Long term goal:
Upon reaching my desired weight of 165 lbs I would love to meet with a couple of people that I have met on here so we can all celebrate our successes together.

My Program:
I am still working on finding an exercise plan that works for me. However, ever weekday I walk for a minimum of an hour and a half while doing Yard supervision at my youngest child's school.
I do enjoy biking, zumba, and some weight training. In the new year I have signed up for a yoga class (my first 'in public' class)!
I am making sure to eat a minimum of 5 fruits or vegetables each day, and am still working up to the 8 glasses of water a day.


Personal Information:
My name is Esther, and I live in Ontario, Canada.

Thanks for the encouragement. I am on the cloverleaf team. Looking forward to the challenge. I am new to the site, still having trouble navigating it.

Fingers crossed that you get the job close to home !!
If school starts on the 8th, when will you hear for sure? My DD tells me decisions like that are very last minute in coming - at least in the school districts she has been with.

DGS probably will be in the hospital another 30-50 days emoticon
Following all the time in the ICU - he needs rehab to regain his speech and motor skills. It has been crazy! He continues to make daily progress and every day we see improvement. He just moved the Rehab section/program of Childrens Hosp yesterday so his 1st full day of therapy starts today. DH & I are headed up there this afternoon to visit and see how it went.

Sis and BIL will be here Friday. We've made some loose plans but mostly, looking forward to a lot of kicking back with a glass of wine (or vodka, or sweet tea) and a lot of good conversation and laughs. We got tickets to a ballgame one night; Planned massages at the spa one day following by smoking ribs on the deck; then most likely drives to the beach, and a few local seaside tourist towns for shopping/sites.

Hope you have a good Wednesday ahead !!

Thanks for the blog comment. This will be an exciting adventure, hopefully the good kind of exciting, not the bad kind! Doing amazing things may be aiming a bit high, I'll settle for doing good, smart things, that should keep me from going broke and having to come back to California!

Hope you had a nice weekend

The week here should be busy - but good.
While DGS is still in the hospital, he's really doing a lot better.
And I start vacation as of Friday - my sister and brother in law will be in from Las Vegas for 10 days ... really looking forward.

When do you go back to school?
Wishing you a great week ahead !!
