The year is sliding by quickly. I went off the rails in the summer months but now with Fall I am back on track.

I'm back seeing Melissa the Dietician every other week. I'm staying on track more often than I'm off track. I've lost a few pounds along the way learning how to eat properly.

The big thing is Focus. Staying on the mark more of the time. Planning meals. Planning how I will eat when I have meals out, meetings for work and volunteering....that is my biggest struggle now. Social Eating.

I live between our cottage at the lake and our home in the country. My stress level has come down considerably this past year by changing jobs. So now I have more control of my time, and my life.

My goals are to eat clean, prepare and cook 80% of my food at home and get back into working out - whether that's a walk around the block or swimming laps in the local pool.

I have 100 + pounds to lose. I've come at this a few times... and I keep coming back - so that means it is important to me to get this done. As of today 8 lbs down. So 92 pounds to go.

I plan to do this slowly and surely. I need to teach myself how to care for me - physically, emotionally and mentally.



Member Since: 4/4/2012

Fitness Minutes: 8,800

My Goals:
Lose 8 - 10 pounds per month for the next 4 months.

Eat clean healthy foods. Watch portion sizes. Get into the pool 2 times per week.

Drink my water - stay hydrated.

Have some fun and laugh everyday.


My Program:
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 55 in December and I"ve been on and off working on this excess menopausal weight for the last 5 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!

    In Capricorn, the Sun is strongly goal-directed and persistent. Ambitious, serious and dedicated to duty, life is difficult, but you are the type of person who will triumph and achieve success. Your aptitude to persevere, no matter how difficult the road, sets you apart from most of your peers. You are anxious to climb the ladder of fortune, and you can usually reach your goals because of your sense of the right way of doing everything. Your patience is never ending.
    The Capricorn child has a hard life and is given a lot of responsibility early on and is never able to be "just a silly kid." She is "old when young" but know she will stay young when old. Capricorn gets along well with Virgo, Pisces, Taurus, Cancer and sometimes Scorpio, but she will not allow Scorpio to run her life, so that can be an issue. She can have problems with headaches from stress and trouble with her knees.
    You are a very thoughtful and serious person, thinking everything through carefully before you set off in any direction. You possess excellent reasoning skills, and you can be counted on to select options that are both practical and that provide an economic advantage. Your attitude is conservative; conservative with time, money, and all other resources. Your philosophy is waste not, want not. You are also likely to be conservative in your political and social attitudes, although your age, upbringing, and education perspectives may influence this somewhat.
    You are especially well suited to business and government because of your sense of organization and structure. You combine a talent for management with an ability to carry out instructions with care. You are the quintessential careerist, taking job and duties very seriously. Therefore, you are never one to shirk responsibility and you have very little use for those that do. That which matters most to you is your public image. You show your best face to the public. You enjoy being in a position of power and authority, although you are not very much inclined to enjoy the limelight. You may prefer instead to run your business from an isolated perspective. You are loyal and dedicated, and you demand utter loyalty and dedication from subordinates. Advancing up the ladder of success is all important. You are unconcerned about, sometimes even ruthless toward, those getting in your path as you move upward.
    You don't handle chaotic situations very well. You may need to develop the ability to lighten up a little and not take life, and everything else so seriously. Although you are self-disciplined, responsible, and practical, at times you can wallow in self-pity. It's essential for you to remember that your most important asset is self-esteem, and you should never devalue this. Rigidity and fear of change may be your biggest stumbling block.
    Sober and reserved in your dealings with others, it takes you a good while to warm up enough to anyone to be considered a close friend. Yet once you do, you are a very caring, reliable, and most steadfast ally. Your private side is different from your public side. In private you are shy and sensitive. The harshness of your public image disappears. Emotionally demanding relationships are very difficult. Love relationships may be more like business relationships, and you are unsure of yourself in most intimate situations.
