My Goals:
***********************************
I'm on a mission *not impossible* to get rid of 70 lbs. for good. The excess weight is like a ball and chain (mentally, physically, and spiritually) and I'm very determined to get it all off and keep it all off. I was slim and trim all the way through childhood and into adulthood. I know what it's like to be a normal weight and I miss it!

My Program:
**************************************
I've made many small and positive changes especially regarding nutrition over the past 3-1/2 years.
Now it's time for BIG CHANGES:

+ Wheat and Gluten Free 6/01/14
+ Eat To Live 8/01/14
+ lots more water
+ lots more exercise
+ keep it up- make it permanent

FRIDAY WEIGH-IN

"Nothing is impossible.
The word itself says I'm possible."
~Audrey Hepburn

The only thing I CAN'T do is continue to live with the excess fat on my body. "It" and my saturated fat-eating ways have got to go. I CAN'T live without regular exercise and plenty of water. That's what I CAN'T do. Are positive changes hard? Not as hard as hauling this fat around. We choose our hard.

Personal Information:
***********************************
8/01/2014: I'VE RENEWED MY WEIGHT LOSS VOWS with a new (for me) food plan. I already went wheat and gluten free 2 months ago. I'm married and my husband is not on this plan but we are finding a way. I retired at 62 in 2012. I turned 64 in May of 2014 and am determined to get the weight off by the end of 2015 while I'm still 65. I'm ready to be a normal weight again~ forever. I'm 5'0" tall: over 127 lbs.= Overweight BMI; over 153 lbs.= Obese BMI. Goal is to remain within my Healthy BMI range; my scream weight is 125.

I liked those words also, as they instill a positive belief that you will act and that you will find a way to succeed. I read a story by the woman who swam the English channel without a shark cage. It took her many attempts and 5 years to do it. She commented that her motto was " I will find a way."

Your vegan eating plan is a healthy one! I hope you are having fun finding good recipes. It is great that you are discovering what works for your body.

If you have not tried it, find coconut butter. It is not dairy but the coconut meat. Steam your cauliflower and mash with 4 T of coconut butter and salt and pepper. It is a good mashed potato!

Good for you keeping that status the same!

Thanks so much for the Spark goodie!
We actually live in Central Pennsylvania in the middle of farm country. The view is from the hotel room we stay in each year :)
