TIME TO SWITCH GEARS FOR SUMMER!

I've been MIA lately....not because I want to, but I'm just running out of time!

We've had our house interior painted, carpeted, and I'm trying to get everything back in order while waiting for blinds. Overwhelming and endless!!

Now there are 3 weddings coming up (June, July & August) that we're attending and I'm looking at myself and asking the same old question, "Why did I let things go?"

I've been MIA lately....not because I want to, but I'm just running out of time!

We've had our house interior painted, carpeted, and I'm trying to get everything back in order while waiting for blinds. Overwhelming and endless!!

Now there are 3 weddings coming up (June, July & August) that we're attending and I'm looking at myself and asking the same old question, "Why did I let things go?"

Time goes by too quickly, and it's easy to run out of time to get everything done! Can I buy some more time??? Unfortunately, no. I'm just going to have to make time for myself before I get too used to bad habits.

Time to track - Summer is here!


What I've learned:

1. Find foods you love that are healthy - they will feel like treats and leave you satisfied!

2. If you are craving a certain fattening food - have it! BUT only once in a while and split it with someone!! You'll still get the satisfaction from it, but with a lot less calories!

3. Treat yourself to something besides food for good behavior! It's not all about eating!



STAYING WITH THE PLAN.....

**I'm eating lots of low-fat, high fiber foods, while substituting as much as I can with whole grains

**I'm using Nutrisystem right now to get me on track

**I'm logging my food

**I'm going to exercise daily

**I'm drinking at least 8 waters daily

**I'm going to bed earlier with my family and getting 7-8 hours sleep

**I WILL NOT eat out of control because of emotions (boredom is my usual problem)

**I WILL NOT eat fattening foods with someone out of guilt

**I WILL NOT blame others for excuses as to why I'm not losing weight...I'm choosing my behavior and it must change in order to lose

I can do this....I WILL DO THIS....I HAVE TO DO THIS!

My Goals:
I'd like to lose my weight and keep it off, plus be able to get off of most of my medicines. I love Sparks....it keeps me on track and motivated!


My Program:
Low carb, low sugar, low fat diet. Making sure that I'm within range for carbs, fats, protein, fiber - so I get a balanced diet.

Personal Information:
SW: 272
Goal: 150

I'm 54, and have been married for 34 years. We have one son, 27, who is a Graphic Designer and just got married!

I love to travel, paint (water colors right now), swim in our pool, go to movies, read, knit/crochet, and have fun with family and friends! So much to do....so little time!!

Other Information:
I've been a stay-at-home mom doing volunteer work since my son was in school. Now that he's an adult, I have to find things to do that keep me active! I've been overweight most of my adult life due to health issues, and have yo-yo dieted without much success. Now I'm taking the time to do something for me! I'm here to get healthy, look better, and have some fun in life without a struggle!

I'm up one pound this week. I'm blaming it on the wine! emoticon

I guess that makes me whining about the wine. emoticon

Hopefully you did better!

It's summer time! When those were the days in my Chevrolet! Windows down and the smell of fresh cut hay.
