My Goal to Become a Fit Grandmother

I have obsessed about my weight since second grade. Since I recently celebrated my 63rd birthday, that's way too long a time. I have gained and lost the same 40 pounds four times at least. I know that this yo-yo dieting has stressed my body more than the 40 pounds ever did. Now I am the grandmother of two adorable granddaughters, just over 2 and 6 months, and my goal is to be the fittest and healthiest I can be so that I am here for them, and can just plain keep up. I live in northern Michigan ...

Now I am the grandmother of two adorable granddaughters, just over 2 and 6 months, and my goal is to be the fittest and healthiest I can be so that I am here for them, and can just plain keep up. I live in northern Michigan with my husband of nearly 33 years, and our very spoiled pets. I still work full time as an office manager plus have a part-time musician job on the weekends. In my spare time, I love quilting, and have included a sample here.

SparkPoints: 139,585

Fitness Minutes: 81,122

My Goals:
My beginning goals are pretty basic.
1. Drink my water
2. Add 20 min. a day to my usual exercise
3. Journal my food (and feelings)
4. Work on evening eating, I've really allowed it to sabatoge my program
5. Limit refined carbohydrates

My Program:
I have most of the eating principles of Weight Watchers and South Beach (plus a few recent ones from OA) committed to memory. They are often de-railed by emotional eating, occasions when I use food for comfort or entertainment. Addressing the emotional aspect will be as important as the plan of eating.

Other Information:
My favorite leisure activities are walking, reading, writing and quilting..

Ooooo, emoticon for the punkin! I saw a recipe somewhere for chicken breasts cooked in broth and spices inside a hollowed out pumpkin. Sounded yummy, though I'm not eating much flesh these days. Might try it with broth and quinoa.

Or maybe a jack-o-lantern, I guess it's almost that time.

Hey, my emoticon , you WILL get to "enoughness". It is inevitable if you follow the punchline from that old joke where a tourist asks the man on the street, "How do you get to Carnegie Hall?" and the man answers, "PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE!"

What amazed me so much about my experience is that after months of just doing the right thing despite resistance and sabotaging thoughts, it just happened.

Don't quit, no matter what!

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. I think I will ask Santa for a FitBit for Christmas unless the Spark one works well with Chair Exercises which I am questioning. I do want to exercise and I know the encouragement I would get from the feed back would be good for me. I just wish I felt better a day later instead of feeling like I need Tylenol to move. Pain is a difficulty I have not yet learned to overcome.

Hey, thanks a zillion for the sunny yellow teapot! Tea is my secret weapon. Amazing how a glass of hot tea can squash a craving. I like to save my gingerroot scraps in a cup and pour hot water over them. Makes a refreshing brew. I count it as part of my water. Do you think that's cheating? emoticon
