I joined Sparkpeople in about June 2012. I had got my weight down and staying down from 76 kilo to 65 (sometimes to 60), but was not succeeding in reaching my goal, which is 60 and under. Given my eating habits when I travel and can't control what food is put before me, and don't control the portions I eat, I need to have a normal weight of 57, to keep at 60 and under. (DONE March 2013!)

(DONE March 2013!)
I am learning to enjoy Sparkpeople's encouragement about exercise, and much appreciate their information about nutrition, fitness etc.
I live in Albania, which is challenging, both for finding healthy food, particularly low fat, and for exercising (savage dogs roam loose or get out. I got badly bitten by the neighbour's Alsatian and the doctor didn't have enough sutures to give me more than 3 stitches). Also snow and ice, or thick mud afterwards are not conducive to walking - I strained my knee last winter...
This winter has been mild and I can easily get out with the dogs most days.

"It takes effort and belief to persevere and stay dedicated to accomplish your goal.
When you find yourself doubting whether the effort is worth it,
visualize how you will feel and what you will have once your goal is completed."

"Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself.
Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew -"

“TAKE ACTION! Wanting is not enough; Act upon your goals!
If somebody was watching your day-to-day behavior, would they be able to see what you’re working towards; what your goals are?
If the answer is no, FIX IT!”

"Conditions are never perfect. ‘Someday’ is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you.
If it’s important to you and you want to do it ‘eventually’, just do it and correct your course along the way."

Thanks so much for your comments on my blog about moderation. I also still struggle with weight gain when I travel--I find that I get overwhelmed by having so many things that are out of my control. I'd love it if you could share some strategies that work for you when you travel. This is my final frontier!
