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.

So I just signed up for a 5K (to be walked by myself and a friend) this one is in July. There is another that I have been eyeballing that is in June so that is still an option. I really need to get my pedometer working or at least get the weather cooperating so I can get back on my bike in order to figure out my total distance and then get a truly accurate sense of my miles/hour that I am walking.
I had thought I was in a plateau, but I went back to look at where I was back in Feb/Jan. So even with the ups and downs and ups that my body cycles through, I am losing on average .75 #/week. Below the expected and below where SP has me, but a slow loss none the less, so I can't complain.
Hope you had a good week and are enjoying the weekend with the family.

I like the walking goal as that seems realistic to achieve. I am a slower walker but went tonight with a friend who walks faster and since I was talking was a good cardio workout. I know there is no way I could run a race, too hard on the knees, but I definitely could see myself walking.

I hope that today met your expectations. I know you have worked hard towards your goals. We are in very similar places with weight lost, plateau and goal weight. For me I think it's important that I learn to live at this current weight so I don't regress and gain, but I also look forward to the end goal of being in the one's.

We will get there and I expect you will before I will emoticon Glad to hear your husband is on board, a great family team you have to support you!

So curious to know if you were celebrating or ready to set the scale to the side for a week or two?

Thanks for checking in. Not sure if I am just that off on estimating food but this week has been a challenge. I track after the fact, which I have found has it's detriments and that has been the case this week. A couple of days was over calories more than I expected, so was frustrated that I was mentally not tallying very well. I think that I am at a weight that I should stay for a few weeks so that I can get a handle on what it takes to be at this weight and eat (whether it is dining in or includes dining out). I am within 5# of my lowest weight and so this feels like dejavu (if you know what I mean).

Have been working out with strength training, walking and/or yard work so that has been going well.

Are you done with the races for a while or have you signed up for a future race? I have been pondering a fundraising walk that is in about 6 weeks. Need to look into it more to see how much further it is than what I currently walk.

Hope the weather cooperates for a nice weekend to play outside.
