Time for a Do Over

Its spring - I'm hopeful. I can do this. I can lose this excess poundage. My goal is to do this by eating healthy food - no prepackaged salt and sugar laden stuff.

I'm back into cooking and preparing from scratch for majority of what I am eating. Two weeks ago I was the heaviest ever. 236 lbs. At just under 5 feet. That's scary. It's not just a few pounds anymore. Who am I kidding?

I did the bmi calculator on the internet. 46.6. Obese. Oh my.

Not good. So its time to get serious. I'm in my 50s and its not fun being this size. So I am looking for support - encouragement and some good laughs from others who are in the same boat. Looking to lose the weight and not be miserable while doing it.

Looking forward to reconnecting with some old spark friends and to making some new ones......

Get my BMI out of obese.

I heard a great line from a dietician on tv the other day....
You can't outrun your fork.
this is my new mantra.
80% weight is what you eat,,, 20% is what you do .
I'm focusing on what goes in my mouth first.

Personal Information:
I'm turning 53 in December and I"ve ben on and off working on this excess menopausal weight for the last 3 years.
Well lets just do it.

Other Information:
My favorite place to hang out is our cottage in the Whiteshell Provincial Park. I love the outdoors!

I'm an avid reader - I used to be a library geek - now I'm a kobo geek - getting my fiction fixes electronically.

My goals right now are to get my bmi under 40 which is 32 lbs away- and to eat healthy meals I prepare at home as much as possible.

time to get rid of the junk in the trunk!

Thank you sooooo much for the kind words on my blog! :D I definitely have my share of "off times" with my eeating and my weight loss (sometimes gaining quite a few), but I do stay consistent with Spark and it helps me find my way back to my weight loss. :D emoticon
