Can't is a coward to lazy to try

looking back when I was in my 30's I can rememeber being at a whopping 225 pounds. It was horrible I couldn't do any kind of physical activity for more than 10 minutes without running out of breath and feeling exhausted so I went on a diet. It took me 2 years to lose 110 pounds and I did that by watching everything I ate. I don't remember ever going over 1000 calories a day. I rode my bike 3 times a week for 7-15 miles.

looking back when I was in my 30's I can rememeber being at a whopping 225 pounds. It was horrible I couldn't do any kind of physical activity for more than 10 minutes without running out of breath and feeling exhausted so I went on a diet. It took me 2 years to lose 110 pounds and I did that by watching everything I ate. I don't remember ever going over 1000 calories a day. I rode my bike 3 times a week for 7-15 miles. My meals consisted of yoguart, rice cakes, salads, veggies and only during the holiday's did I ever induldge in turkey, hamburgar, hams or any other kind of meats. Needless to say after doing this for 2 years and deciding it was time for me to start some kind of exercise program and join a gym did I begin to really feel the horrible effects of my diet. I had starved myself for 2 years in order to loose weight and the minute I needed and added food in order to fuel my body for a stronger and healthier body to sustain my activity level I began to gain weight again. Now at 180 pounds I have found myself wishing to be skinny again, but realize I must accomplish this with a smart and healthy lifestyle. One that will balance fuel for the body as well as exercise for strength and endurance. I struggle daily with this quest for balance and I know in the end regardless of my weight, be it 180 or 115 I will have success.

My Goals:
To find that place where what I want and what I do become one in bringing me to a healtier, fuller and longer life

My Program:
Since I have always been good at tracking what I eat It is time for me to focus on actually eating. To find a balance of good healthy foods and EAT so I can burn calories rather than muscle. To bridge the gap between "oh I have to" to "oh I want to" be more active and enjoy exercising. I am changing the diet to include less red meat and more fruits and veggies and testing the zing and zang of spices. I will add more water and continue on my journey to becoming a non smoker even if it means my weight will go up for a short time

Personal Information:
I am a mother of 2 adult children. I am their motivation as they don't want to look like mom! I live in Nevada and love it here. I lost 110 pounds at weight watchers about 5 years ago. Took me nearly 2 years and have gained back 50 since I quit attending weekly meetings. To go back or not is the question. Do I have what it takes to loose again. I am in Northern Nevada where there are great opportunites for outdoor activities. I just really needto get the husband on board.

I love the new profile pic! Or is it an old one and I'm just not paying attention??!!! lol Meanwhile, I hope all has been going well with you....been trying to keep myself calm, cool and collected here. I have been told by the doctor that I need to start putting ME first instead of everyone else!! It isn't as easy as they say.....

We did fine both on the hurricane and the earthquake front. How stressful for you. I am crossing my fingers and toes that something will come your way soon.
