SparkPoints: 10,888

Fitness Minutes: 2,806

My Goals:
I am not going to try to attain a weight within a healthy range as defined by all of the charts. I'm striving for a weight I attained 12 years ago which was about 10 pounds over the Weight Watchers goal. That's what I think is realistic for me.

My Program:
Portion control, eliminating the white stuff - potatoes, rice, sugar, pasta, enriched flour - as much as possible. But perfection is not the goal. I'm tracking my food on Sparkpeople.
30 min. of cardio 5X/week

Personal Information:
I live on top of a mountain, am married, and homeschool my 12 year old son. I have plantar fasciitis which is currently keeping me from enjoying walking and hiking. But I'm stretching and working out most days on a stationery bike.

Other Information:
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. - Calvin Coolidge

Thank you for passing by at my blog 'How to stay slim while dealing with toxic people' and for your kind words also. I take each day as it comes and I know with god and everyone else on here I will get there, in fact we both will. I have learnt in life that if you want to see something getting done you have to put all the effort in your self and move forward. Only 'we' can lose weight and better our chances. Off course I would like my husband for support but I am using his harsh words to spur me on to do better so I can get the confidence to say goodbye. I just can't at the minute get the courage to leave him as if I am honest he has been verbally abusing me for a few years now. Sadly I am not in that place as yet but who knows what the future may entail. I really appreicate you stopping by. I can't believe that my blog has touched so many and I am truly astonished of that. Normally I do allot of rambling but I do hold my heart on my sleeve and sometimes I get carried away not realising that I shouldn't have said that but the way I look at it, its my blog and its personal only to me. Better out than in. Wishing you all the best along your weight loss journey, take care Dee
