2016's new Goal

Hi my name is Sandy and I have struggled with my weight all of my life. Yo-yoing anywhere between a size 12 and 22. I have had many ups and downs with sparkpeople. I start off 2015 at 232 pounds my heaviest to date. My goal was to lose 88 pounds. I finished off 2015 at 2013 pounds. I had gotten down to 208 but the holidays hit and I gained some.

Because of health related issues (blood sugars and cholesterol) my dotor has put me on qsymia which should help me reach my goal. ...
Hi my name is Sandy and I have struggled with my weight all of my life. Yo-yoing anywhere between a size 12 and 22. I have had many ups and downs with sparkpeople. I start off 2015 at 232 pounds my heaviest to date. My goal was to lose 88 pounds. I finished off 2015 at 2013 pounds. I had gotten down to 208 but the holidays hit and I gained some.

Because of health related issues (blood sugars and cholesterol) my dotor has put me on qsymia which should help me reach my goal. My goal is to eat 1200 - 1400 calories a day, exercise 6 days a week.

I still have a long way to go to reach my goal weight in 2016 and but I am sure I can do it with focus and alot of exercise.

My kids are my life and I want to make sure that I get to enjoy many years with them and potential grandchildren. So now is the time to get it together and stay motivated and focused on my goal.

My 2016 goals are to participate in a couple 5K's, drink more water, lose 50 pounds this year, set a good example for my children with eating and exercise, and stay on my spiritual journey remembering daily how to live a better life and treating others how I would like to be treated.

Doing well with workouts, ran out of time at the end of my day so I chose aerobic since I am trying to increase from 3x week to 5x week and I will occasionally fluctuate with strength training from 3x week to 2x week. Just knowing that you are checking has given me more accountability.
Frustrated that I will wear something ( a skirt today) and then put jeans on and the skirt is baggy yeah but the jeans still tight so then I question if I have made any changes as I know the scale hasn't changed (up down up all within a couple of pounds). Calories, fats staying within range, carbs usually within or a little low and proteins/fiber more often than not low, so feeling nutrition is going well as in the past fats were always a big challenge. Sometimes I think I must just be toning and so slower to see changes that must :) be happening somewhere in my body.
Glad you are getting in your workouts and hope you are happy with the scale on Friday.

There are some times where we make the best decision we can at the time and vending machines certainly make it challenging to eat healthy ( and darn it if you are going to splurge pretty sure it wouldn't be vending machine food). Glad it was only the one day and lets hope no more injuries for your family.
Hope you get your wish and the end of the week your hard work shows on the scale or in some other way - clothes fit better, you feel better - something positive!
This is my week to try adding extra time or just more days of the week that I do cardio, so far on track. So looking ahead and hoping that in a few weeks that becomes apparent same thing as you scale, clothes etc...

Just checking in to see if you had to deal with any of the weather storms that we are experiencing in the midwest today. Ours was icy/slushy and rainy so far, hoping the temps don't drop as that will definitely be slippery in the am.
Not sure what I have been up to yest and today, but I am lower on my calories than normal - hmmm a mystery as I feel I am eating my normal way.
Have a great Wednesday

Way to go on the smaller tape measure - that is such a good feeling emoticon

Hopped on the elliptical tonight which was a great workout and it was also my strength training night. Only negative is how late it puts me getting home for dinner and then to refocus on getting some school work done this evening.... still working it all out.

Have a great Friday.
