Lose weight, increase strength & stamina, reduce stress


My Program:

5% challenge exercise plan: walking 30 minutes, 5 days per week, yoga 2 days per week. Increasing exercise as injuries heal.

Overall plan - healthy eating, exercise, journaling, meditation

Highest weight: most likely 300ish, but I stopped weighing when I hit 298 (spring '14). Restart on Sparkpeople: 288 1/1/15.

Personal Information:
I'm from Boston, a city I love despite the weather :). Currently, I work in the publishing industry and also as a counselor for youth & families. I have a passion for travel, writing reading and hiking.

Other Information:
Reasons I want to lose weight:

1. Healthier body (no more achy joints, muscle weakness)
2. Increased energy.
3. Longevity - eventually be a strong & healthy senior and avoid disease.
4. Enhance stamina/strength to be able to hike/bike/ski, etc.
5. To live more fully/stop holding myself back due to weight.
6. Increased confidence.
7. Be a better example for the children in my life.
8. Travel to exotic places & not be limited by my weight
9. Feel like I look great in clothes again & can wear whatever I want.
10. Being strong/confident in my own skin will help me be more assertive in goal-seeking.

Deborah thanks for stopping in. Maybe this will be a time for you to reinvent yourself. You are obviously a deep thinker. Take care of yourself.
