ACTION IS KING!!!

I have lost hundreds and hundreds and hundreds AND hundreds of pounds in my lifetime as a yo yo dieter.

Having lost over 50 pounds and re-gained again, April 28, 2014 is the date I began my last loss. October 23, 2014 is the date I returned to my goal weight after having to re-lose 31 lbs. It's the date I consider the start of my maintenance.

If I act in accordance with my weight maintenance, my goal weight will stay.

Relentless Determination!!! ...

Relentless Determination!!! (formerly known as maintenance)


Boppy's words:
However, I just can't help but think that many people, here at SP, who bemoan not be "strong enough" are barking up the wrong pasta and sausage tree.

The problem usually is not strength, but habit -- established behavior patterns -- behavioral inertia. The way to change that is through attention, planning, tracking and evaluation. You must know this because you've had great success.

Bingo is part of the BL challenge this week. We have 2 Bingo cards - one focusing on food and the other on fitness. We get points for each square we can mark of as doing, points for each row completed, and a 50 point bonus for marking off all 25 squares on the card. Want me to send you the links to the cards so you can see what they are?

I'm in Woodridge, about 15-20 miles west of Chicago.
For citronella candles, I just take wax from some leftover candles I have, wick that I bought at a craft store (Joann, Michaels, Hobby Lobby), and citronella essential oil that I bought at Fruitful Yield.
You can also buy the wax at the craft stores, but make sure you get the one with a low melting point (that's what you use in jar candles). I happened to have some liquid paraffin oil from an oil lamp, so after melting the wax, I add some of that to it to lower the melting point. Then I add about 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of citronella oil per cup of wax and stir it and pour into containers. You can use cup or pint size canning jars if you want. What I did was bought some of the small metal pails at the dollar section in Target and use those.

Its always good to hear from you... It continues to be a little stressful but I am determined to stay positive and not complain. So many others have a more difficult path than I do. I am switching MDs now and hope my experience will be better at this
