Fitness and well being are the effects of habits. I should know. I have lots of habits. Many of them are not particularly skillful. This takes time and patience and practice. I have plenty of time. Not too bad on patience. And the leisure to practice. Besides...this is fun.

My Goals:
Goal:
Lose 5 pounds.
And then lose 5 pounds. And then lose 2 pounds. And then celebrate!











My Program:
1. Eat in the Mediterranean style
2. Plan all meals and snacks and say No Choice to anything unplanned
3. Schedule shopping and meal prep. Be prepared. Make it a priority.
5. Eat sitting at the table.
6. Log fitness and track nutrients in Spark trackers
7. Use distractions to manage cravings.
8. Weigh every day
9. Read my list of reasons why I want to lose weight every day
10. Exercise every day



Personal Information:
I lost 30 pounds using Spark tools and kept most of it off though I never reached my desired goal. Recently I started to creep back up. So I looked up Cognitive Behavior and weight loss and up popped the "Beck Diet Solution". It is a perfect fit with the Spark tools and the Mediterranean plan. And I am having fun. Fun is very important to me. I live on Outer Cape Cod and part time in the hills of Western Massachusetts. I love being surrounded by natural beauty. I left a successful career protecting land and helping people appreciate and enjoy nature. Now my time is my own to pay attention to wellbeing and fitness when and how I wish. Luxury!


Other Information:
I love companion animals especially my current dog Lilly. My husband is plenty cool too and is supportive of my losing weight. I love the beach and my favorite exercise is swimming outdoors or walking on beautiful beaches with my pooch.

    Ahh yes, the dreaded burger and fries places. Not my favorites to deal with at all. If I HAVE to I'll order a burger, (chicken or veggie if available) remove the bun and sub sliced tomatoes or cottage cheese for the fries. Restaurants are usually good about accommodating changes, however my DH was charged an extra $5 for his tomatoes recently!

    I made a written list just yesterday myself of what I want, how to get it and why I want it.

    The short version:
    Lose 20+ more pounds putting me in the 140s
    Stay on track AND exercise 5x a week
    I want to be DONE with this part of the journey.
    Maintenance ... here I come!!!!

    SOS, HELP, Danger danger ... I'm drowning!!!

    I have been sick for a week, succumb to eating crap when I could eat and of course I have not moved my body. I gained 7 pounds in one week ... yep, I am skilled that way.

    I have been struggling since mid-August and I am scared to death I am gonna gain back the whole 100 pounds.

    What to do, what to do???
