There's More to Life than Fat-Free Cheese

I'm interested in losing weight, certainly, but I'm trying to change my focus from diet diet diet and scale scale scale to healthy healthy healthy! I want to eat healthy, organic, local whole foods IN MODERATION! I want to have my wine every day, just not a whole bottle! I want to eat REAL FOODS, not fake plastic fat-free yecht. And for that I need to learn a bit of restraint.

I've spent what feels like my whole life (and it practically has been) watching my weight and I feel ...

I've spent what feels like my whole life (and it practically has been) watching my weight and I feel like it's high time to make some changes in my outlook.

I have always been pretty down on myself for being overweight but I am embarking on this journey to change that.

Fitness Minutes: 18,666

My Goals:
To improve my life by continuing to improve my eating habits and fitness level to get to a more healthy weight. I plan to do this by sticking to such health habits as eating whole, organic, local foods in moderation, and finding an exercise plan that works for me -- and slipping in the occasional glass of wine!

My Program:
I joined SparkPeople because I was looking for a place to get inspiration and tools for reaching my goals.
These are some of the things I'm doing:
-Trying a new food once a week
-Parking on the 5th floor of the parking garage and taking the stairs
-Taking a 20 minute walk (at least) every day
-Trying new recipes every week
-Changing habits such as eating in front of the TV
-Get all my water in before I'm allowed any wine!
-Using and contributing to SparkPeople message boards, blogs, pages, etc.

Personal Information:
Hi, I'm Joanie, a 45 year old newly-married (whoohoo!!!) woman living in Long Beach, California, where I've lived for 27 years. I work as a computer Visual Effects artist but hope to change my career (I'd love to just stay home, garden and raise some backyard chickens, but the mortgage isn't gonna pay itself!!!) I live in a 1918 Craftsman bungalow with my husband (I love that word!) and a small blonde cat named Puss-Puss.

Other Information:
I'm concerned with living a clean and thoughtful life -- recycling, reducing my carbon footprint, eating locally and organically. I think these things are far more important than fat-free cheese, which is a hideous substance.
