THE TIME IS HERE TO START OVER AND NEVER TURN BACK!

Hi Everyone! My name is Linda and have 122 pounds to lose to put me in a normal weight range. What the final weigh loss will be depends on how I feel & look. The most important thing is I must be comfortable with myself. I guess my title page says it all. I have been a member off and on for a few years now. It is time I hold myself accountable and get serious about losing weight. I am tired of yo yo dieting. I am really tired of the way I look and feel. I am fearful of developing heart ...
Hi Everyone! My name is Linda and have 122 pounds to lose to put me in a normal weight range. What the final weigh loss will be depends on how I feel & look. The most important thing is I must be comfortable with myself. I guess my title page says it all. I have been a member off and on for a few years now. It is time I hold myself accountable and get serious about losing weight. I am tired of yo yo dieting. I am really tired of the way I look and feel. I am fearful of developing heart disease or diabetes which runs in our family. I lack discipline, self control and perseverance. But that is O.K. I am here to learn. When I think of my goal it puts a BIG SMILE on my face! I know when I lose the weight I will have more energy and my self esteem will soar! I know it's going to be a long road but I AM GOING TO TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME! I'm in this for the long haul. Their seems to be so much help on the site that I know in my heart I will succeed! My short team goal is to leave Twoterville & enter into Onederland by the end of July 2015. I can do it! I will do it! I believe in myself. I'm not a quitter!

Hi! Thank you so much for your comment on my blog entry. It's easier to know there are others trying to achieve the same goals. Let's keep each other motivated. I added you as a Spark friend. I know we can break 200 and join Onederland if we work hard and ignore the urges. "Look in the mirror. That's your only competition." emoticon

Ok, tomorrow is the big day! My month of maintenance was fun, but the grandkids are gone I have my membership to the YMCA and my food for the week mapped out. I am weighing back at the 204 mark this morning, and if I do ok this evening I will be in the 203's in the morning. I WILL be in Onederland by the beginning of next week. Here I come!!!!

I'm disappointed I don't have a tracker, it really motivated me to work out.

Thanks for the well-wishes Linda! It has been frustrating at times, but I'm so thankful for the experience because it proves that what I'm doing is working, and when I'm not doing it right, like you said, my body lets me KNOW it!!
When I was Powell's Books in Portland, this book just jumped out at me: Born a Healer by Chunyi Lin. It's a quick read, but he also has a website that you can check out: http://www.springforestqigong.com/index.ph

I have been practicing a very basic breathing technique that is designed to allow the flow of energy through my body and place me in a meditative state as well. It can be done standing, sitting or lying down, so it has been very helpful in dealing with the pain while undergoing these procedures! Doc was very happy with the way things are healing today and I don't have to go back for two weeks :D
