Back to Square One

I retired from a job that was a 24 hour a day 7 day a week hassle and am now finding time for myself. I enjoy reading, walking, cruising and enjoying the grand kids. Went back to work at a school and am enjoying the work, but need to rework my program to account for the triggers that are there. 2014 will be the year I get to goal and work on maintenance.

I retired from a job that was a 24 hour a day 7 day a week hassle and am now finding time for myself. I enjoy reading, walking, cruising and enjoying the grand kids. Went back to work at a school and am enjoying the work, but need to rework my program to account for the triggers that are there. 2014 will be the year I get to goal and work on maintenance.

Update (December 27, 2013) Got a little off track this last quarter of the year, but did not gain. Am setting up my program to get the last 15 pounds back off and will begin immediately. Awaiting the arrival of twin grandchildren and need to be ready to be of assistance to dd and be a better me.

Update (July 14,2013) I have completed the Spring to Summer 5% Challenge and am in the middle of BLC22. The Summer 5% Challenge begins on July 27th and I want to keep the momentum going. I am steadily losing weight and am feeling much better about myself. Eating is getting better and I am getting the strength training in also. I want to be in the midst of a solid streak when school starts up again in early August so that I don't backslide like I did last year. I am feeling much more confident about it.

Update (December 1, 2012) These last few months have not been pretty at all. I went back to work thinking that I needed to be more active on a daily basis and I love my job and the people in the office, but I have not done well with maintaining my commitment to eat well and exercise. So here and now I am recommitting to being better to myself. I put back on 15 of the 40 pounds that I lost. I will NOT make excuses for myself, but just restart the program with small steps to get everything back under control. A special thanks to my BLC and 5% Challenge teams for their attempts to keep me in line!!! Here's to a new start.

Update (June 2012) I am getting the routines back down and am using the BLC and the 5% Challenges to help me get back to maintenance. I will exercise a minimum of 60 minutes 5 days a week and track all the food I eat.

Update (April 2012) Ok so life has thrown some major curve balls over the last year. I have gained 10 pounds in the process. It stops here as I get me life back in gear, Going to get back to my goal of 125 and start the maintenance learning curve again. Thanks to all my friends for their support during the past year.

Update (September 2011) I am struggling a little with maintenance. It is hard right now to find the right balance of calories and exercise to keep everything in check. But I will keep working at it until I can figure it all out.

Update (April 2011) I have hit the 120 pound point and am happy here so I am going into maintenance mode. Now the challenge comes to see if all I have learned will stick. I will remain a sparker, because I feel the need to remain accountable and I like all my friends here.

Update (February 2011) I am now 6 pounds from my goal weight. I am not sure that I even need or want to be that low, but I want to try it and see how it works. If it doesn't stick I can be happy where I am. Everything fits well, I just need to tone up. We'll see what happens in the next 8 weeks and go from there.

I'm sorry I haven't been as encouraging as I should - I have suffered a case of "the doldrums" and am hoping it will pass soon .

No rhyme or reason - it just hits me sometimes. I have been tracking and logging since Jan 1 and I think it is just getting to me.

I will be back! This you can bank on!!

Try for 1 lb per week - better chance of keeping it off. I didn't plan to lose so much last week and it set me back on my butt with binges. ONE day at a time & "this too shall pass!"

huggers,
linda
