Starting Over

I've never been thin and fit. The lowest adult weight was 127 lb, but I wasn't in shape. I've also never really been fat. My heaviest was 159 lb, after gaining 15 in Europe after high school. I've consistently been chubby, around 145 lb, and I haven't ever had to work to maintain that. Until now. My metabolism must be slowing because in the last year I've gained 10 lbs, approaching my all time high.

My metabolism must be slowing because in the last year I've gained 10 lbs, approaching my all time high.

I've always been insecure about my body. This past year I trained for and ran a half marathon, hoping the pounds would melt off. They didn't. This time I'm keeping it simple. Be active. Eat well. Get stronger.

I love to travel and am planning a trip to Cuba in February. I would love to be able to look at the pictures and not be focused on my muffin top or jowls.

they could become or don't fulfill
their potential, and they're walking
around, able-bodied. I'm going, 'Come
on, come on, go for it".

I'm a weight loss junkie OK here is what it did

my program was healthy portion control meals 3 times day and 2 snacks day

stop eating 2 hours before bed drink 8-10 water per day or more

A nutritionist told me when you want to maintain weight eat the post run meal like everyone does. When you want to lose weight.
Wait 1 Hour then eat.
I make sure its my regular snack or meal at the 1 Hour AFTER I never add an extra meal because I was running.

I just ran a 1/2 marathon in New orleans with spark friends and I ate 3 beignets fried donuts, alligator fried appetisers etc.. because You also need to enjoy life, but I've worked hard at it and dont want to go back to the old me.
Also allow yourself that small treat once per week, but keep it portion control
eat that small piece of cake slowly not the whole cake quickly- LOL
