MommaGini's Weight Loss Journey

I'm mother to two boys 10 years apart (youngest turned 18 in 2012). I've always struggled with my weight, and I am determined to get it under control!

In December 2007 I started a medically supervised Very Low Calorie weight loss program. It worked very well, but after losing 50 lbs in just over a year I let life get in the way and gained it all back. Two big things I am keeping from that experience are (1) I can be persistent enough to get this weight off! and (2) after having ...

It worked very well, but after losing 50 lbs in just over a year I let life get in the way and gained it all back. Two big things I am keeping from that experience are (1) I can be persistent enough to get this weight off! and (2) after having my body-fat percentage measured I learned I had set my goal weight far too low - I have 138 lbs of lean body mass (Apparently there's a lot of muscle and some pretty dense bone under the fat!) so I shouldn't go as low as the charts say. I'm adjusting my goal to 165, and WILL get there and STAY THERE!

MOMMAGINI Slept long but poorly, woke up tired. My injured foot has been cramping after yesterday's long walk, I guess we overdid it! Today, I will do some gardening and take some Aspirin before bed.

SparkPoints: 9,640

Fitness Minutes: 2,588

My Goals:
OK, so I reversed all the progress I made in 2008. Here we go again:

First target - down to 205 by my Dr appointment 11/15/2010

OK, blew that one AGES ago, restarting in February 2013. Weighed 243 a few days before my doctor's appointment, going back in four months. Aiming for 205 (an ambitious 2 pounds per week) by the next appointment.

My Program:
Low calorie, high protein:

Calories 1,000 to 1,500/day
Protein, fat, and carbs about evenly distributed (1/3 of each day's calories from each)

Carbs mainly from veggies
a little fruit is OK
MINIMIZE bread, pasta, cake etc.

Personal Information:
I'm in Northeastern Massachusetts, in the "Greater Lowell" area. Separated since 2004 and working, I like to go places with friends and live an active lifestyle.

Other Information:
In late 2009 I decided it was time to start dating again! It sure is fun getting out there again, but eating healthy can be a challenge on a date. Salad entrees are great but not always appropriate, and eating only half the meal sometimes doesn't go over too well...

Sorry I have not been a good friend by keeping in touch. I have not been on track for awhile. I have gotten back on track and am trying to renew friendships and to again try to inspire and get inspired by my old contacts. Wishing you well.
