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 am now pre diabetic but the doctor said I can change that with weight loss. 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 in 2018. I can do it! I will do it! I believe in myself. I'm not a quitter!

    Hi Linda,

    Thanks for your comment on my page. We all get off track sometimes so hang in there. I never want to see 210-ville ever again. I am just stuck at 209. I can't wait to see the scale move down. Fingers crossed maybe this week.

    Hi, Linda, thanks for your comment on my sparkpage -- I really appreciate it!

    It's weird, sometimes it feels like I've been doing this for SO long that I can't believe it, and other times it feels like no big deal. But regardless, the big thing is that I keep on going. I probably have another year until I get to my goal weight. I'm looking to lose 100 pounds, so I'm just over halfway there now.

    I've heard people say that motivation doesn't matter when you try to lose weight, count calories, do all that good stuff, that it's more about discipline. You just keep going and doing what you're supposed to do whether you feel like it or not. And if you slip, you don't make it a big deal and give up, you just acknowledge the blip, then back on to what you need to do.

    I have been weighing and measuring all my food (and my wine!) every day, estimating it when I can't, eating out when I want but trying to plan my calories beforehand. I definitely go over sometimes but then I get back to where I need to be. Two days a week I eat between 500-600 calories (5:2 intermittent fasting) and oddly enough that has really helped me control my hunger. Seems counter-intuitive, but it works - go figure!

    Just remember that time is going to pass whether you're working on your diet or not, so you may as well do it, right? emoticon
