JANUARY 1, 2015 I managed to keep weight down for two and 1/2 years. Unfortunately I allowed myself to gain about 6 pounds during this last holiday season. I can't let this happen. I must turn it around now!! I'm going back to the basics. Do the things that got me to my goal in the first place. Drink 8-10 glasses of water each day.(I've been slacking off). Eat my fruits and vegetables and stay away from rice and pasta. The most important thing I need to start doing again is workout ...
JANUARY 1, 2015 I managed to keep weight down for two and 1/2 years. Unfortunately I allowed myself to gain about 6 pounds during this last holiday season. I can't let this happen. I must turn it around now!! I'm going back to the basics. Do the things that got me to my goal in the first place. Drink 8-10 glasses of water each day.(I've been slacking off). Eat my fruits and vegetables and stay away from rice and pasta. The most important thing I need to start doing again is workout regularly. That will keep me where I want to be. 2015 is the year of Successes, whatever that means to you. ---------------------------------------- -------------------------------------- -------------
SUCCESS!!! My goal was to lose 100 pounds. I have lost 103 pounds. I weigh 170. I haven't been this small in a very long time. It may not seem small but it is. I still have those darn chicken arms. LOL. I'm not a spring chicken and I've been large so long that if I lose any more I will look bad. I decided I will stay right where I am and my doctor agrees. I am happy, healthy and my DH and I think I look great!!
My new goal is to help others succeed in their goal to become new healthier people.

I will maintain my current workout regime
~When I wake up I will drink a large glass of water and eat a healthy breakfast ~Do a five minute exercise burst each morning before breakfast ~Do a least 30 minutes of Strength or cardio 6 days a week ~I will stay within my nutritional ranges as least 5 days a week
My name is Pam. I'm a Christian and have been married for 19 years and we were together 10 years before that. I have 4 grandchildren. Boy 22, girl 14, boy 6 and another boy 4. I'm Nana to all of them and I love spending as much time as possible with them.
I am disabled. It's frustrating because its only been about 5 years and I'm not used to being limited. I'm blessed because when I had back surgery it was completely successful and it stopped the majority of my pain.
I live a blessed life. All my needs are met and I am able to spend quality time with my 86 y/o Mom. She's happy and healthy and we have great fun together.
HI PAM....... I'M HAPPY TO HEAR YOU DID BETTER LAST NIGHT......... I HOPE SOME OF MY SUGGESTIONS WORK FOR YOU.......... I ALSO TRY TO BUY LOWER CALORIE AND FAT SNACKS.... ONE THING I ALWAYS DO IS PICK STUFF THAT TAKES AWHILE TO EAT........ FOR SOME REASON THAT HELPS ME TO FEEL LIKE I DON'T NEED MORE...... LIKE I TOLD YOU I'VE HAD THE NIGHT PROBLEM FOR MANY YEARS....... I THINK I TRIED EVERYTHING IN THE BOOK...... LOL....... BUT I KNOW I CAN FIND OTHER IDEA'S TO TRY AND STOP THIS BAD HABIT.......... BEST OF LUCK........ I'M HERE CHEERING YOU ON ALL THE WAY..... I GOT THROUGH LAST NIGHT...... BREATH AND DON'T PUT ANY DEMANDS ON YOURSELF WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR NIGHT EATING.....
HELLO PAM.......... I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A NIGHT SNACKING PROBLEM...... SO WHEN I FIRST TRIED TO STOP IT........ I TOOK IT SLOW...... AT FIRST I CUT IN HALF MY NORMAL SNACKS..... WHEN I GOT GOOD AT THAT I CUT IT DOWN A BIT MORE UNTIL I DIDN'T NEED IT......... SO YOUR RIGHT YOU DO NEED TO TAKE SOME PRESSURE OFF YOURSELF..... I SURE HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU......... BE SURE TO LET ME KNOW....... I DID OKAY LAST NIGHT.... I'M CHEERING YOU ON PAM.......
HELLO PAM........... WHEN YOU HAVE A CRAVING I FIND IT'S BETTER TO HAVE WHATEVER THEN IT'S DONE GONE AND NO MORE...... STAYING POSITIVE IN STEP ONE....... SO YOUR DOING GOOD..... I MADE IT LAST NIGHT......... IT'S SUNDAY LET'S TRY TO GET THROUGH WITH NO EXTRA SNACKS......
HELLO PAM.......... OK SO YOU ATE A 1/2 BOX OF COOKIES... THROWING THEM AWAY WAS A GOOD IDEA...... MY SON DOES THE SAME THING....... HE HAS HIS OWN SWEETS CUPBOARD TOO..... BUT SOME THINGS THINGS DON'T GET IN THERE.... IF I DON'T SEE IT I'M OK.... GOING OUT TO EAT WITH YOUR MOM DON'T TRY TO DRINK WATER AND NOT EAT.... JUST TRY TO PICK ALL GOOD CHOICES IN YOUR FOODS...
