Lifestyle Change

I'm Rose, 45 yrs. old, divorced (8/24/10), have 2 boys (Caleb, 9 and Joshua, 8).

At the beginning of the year (2011), I was diagnosed with Hypertension. My doctor put me on blood pressure medication and "forced" me to go to Weight Watchers meetings. Due to work and other obligations, I was unable to continue WW and have been trying to lose the weight on my own. Unfortunately, instead of losing, I've gained almost 30lbs.

The other day, I just made up my mind and decided that I'm not going to continue down this path that will eventually cause my health to deteriorate even more.

Enough with the yo-yo dieting . . . it's time for a lifestyle change!

My Goals:
This time has to be different. I am not making any weight loss goals at the time. My goal is to change my bad eating habits (I'm a fast food junkie!) and replace them with healthy options (fruits, veggies, limited grains, lean meat & fish).

My Program:
Reallly planning my meals ahead of time, drinking tons of water/green tea, & exercise at least 4x a week and incorporating both cardio (3x a week) & strength (2x a week).

Personal Information:
I will be divorced two years on 8/24/11 and considering all the stress & health issues I've faced, I didn't overdo anything. I've gained about 30 lbs in the past year, but have taken control again and have set a long-term goal of losing 100 lbs by my wedding on 6/8/13. I have made some smaller goals as well so that I don't overwhelm myself.

Other Information:
"I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens me." - Phillipians 4:8

I saw your post on the Brides to Be board about getting healthy before you Summer Wedding next year. I thought maybe we could help each other out. I know you're 466 days out - I'm doing late winter/early spring next year, so I'm 333 days out.

Your plan sounds great so far. How have your workout programs/DVDs been going? I'm trying to get myself back into a workout habit, but am having some trouble. I manage to go to the gym or workout a few times a week, then I skip a whole week and then another. Each week I go without, it's harder and harder to go back. I frustrate myself so much. :(

I'm doing a weight loss game with some family members now too, and in 5 weeks I'm exactly where I started. Clearly, not tracking and not working out isn't doing me any favors. When does your weight loss competition start at work?

Hang in there. I'm a tortoise when it comes to weight loss, but hopefully I can encourage you to take it one day at a time. It will happen! emoticon

thanks for your encouraging comments. I haven't figure out how to reply to people from comments or blogs, so I am just leaving you this comment. I think we are close to the same age and i love the verse you have on spark page.
