Every day you eat sensibly makes it that much less likely you will overeat again. The new you will become the only you in time. Your inner self will catch up to your outer self in time. No matter how many years you spent building up a self-image labeled fat, frumpy, foolish, failure, it can be destroyed and replaced by the knowledge that you are attractive, effective, and successful, inside and out. Give yourself that time.
My goal is to get rid of this excess weight. I am currently working on the next 5 pounds.
Update-July 2005 - I have lost 15 lb. I hope to be under 200 by September.
I did not reach my under-200 goal by September 2005.
I will be happy to be under 200 whenever it happens.
Update (July 2007) - I am still fighting to get below 200. The difference is that this time I am going to do it. Seven more pounds....
August 22, 2007 - at last I am 199. On to the next challenge.
I joined TOPS January 2006 but did not renew my membership in 2012.

As I was visiting working my spark challenges, I read so many comments concerning regaining the weight after reaching goal weight.
This concerns me, my friends, as I too have regained some weight. Even though I hadn't reached my goal weight. I had slipped into depression and had stopped exercising. I do know the reason behind my weight gain.
I would like to point out that this is not a diet, it is a way of life. It is not something you do to fit into that special dress or to look good for your daughter's up coming wedding or your reunion. This has to be a new learned way of eating healthy for the rest of your life and exercising regularly. I cannot stress it enough that this must become a life style for you it YOU WANT to remain at your healthy goal weight.
Once you get to your goal weight, you may want to discuss with your doctor on how best to increase your calories for weight maintenance. Yes, I said increase your calories. You will slowly increase your calories just a little, in order to maintain that new you. But you must continue to exercise in order not to regain weight.
Again, I cannot stress this enough that you need to talk to your doctor or even a dietician. Losing weight and exercising is a great way to get in shape, but there is so much more to maintain that new found health.
I want all of you to be Happy Healthy and Fit.....read, research and talk to fitness experts, doctors and dieticians.

The only way to get what you really want is to know what you really want.
The only way to know what you really want is to know yourself.
The only way to know yourself is to be yourself.
And the only way to be yourself is to listen to your heart.

"The person you need to love most–who most needs your love–is YOU. Loving and caring for yourself first isn’t selfish, it’s self-full. CJScarlet"
