Yes I Can, Yes I Will!

Hi everyone. Thank you for visiting my page. My name is Diane. I am 52 years old and have been struggling with my weight since I was in my early teens. I have lost and regained hundreds of pounds over the years. It is very frustrating, but I know that I need to try again. I am over 100 pounds overweight and have a family history of obesity-related diseases. If not now, then when?

Update for 2015: Working on long term goals, benchmarks and rewards for the new year.

Member Since: 11/18/2013

SparkPoints: 25,588

Fitness Minutes: 11,230

My Goals:
Weight-Related:

Long term goal: Lose 50 pounds by 12/31/15. That sounds like a lot, but in reality, it is less than 1 pound a week. YES I can! YES I will!

Benchmarks: Lose 6 lbs. a month through 5/1/15. Lose 4 lbs. a month through 9/1/15. Lose remaining 10 pounds by 12/31/15. This allows for any plateaus, etc. during the final third of the year.


Short term goal: Consistently fit into my clothes; not just my "fat jeans", by 4/1/15. As a reward for hitting this goal, I am going to have all the clothes that need to be altered done by a professional tailor, instead of trying to take things in myself (with mixed results, to say the least!) I am also going to buy myself a new belt when I need one, instead of making new holes in the ones I already have!

Rewards for meeting goals and benchmarks:
Each 5 lbs. lost will earn me a trip to Ulta!
20 lbs. lost: Full highlights
30 lbs. lost: New pair of shoes.
40 lbs. lost: Professional

My Program:
I will take 10,000 steps at least 6 days a week.

I will do a water workout (swimming, water jogging or water aerobics) 3 days a week.

I will use the elliptical for 30 minutes, 2 days a week.

I will be using a modified version of the DASH Diet, under the guidance of a nutritionist.

Personal Information:
I live in a small town north of San Diego. It is a wonderful place to live with beautiful weather and I have no excuse not to enjoy all types of physical activity! I enjoy swimming and hiking and will try anything (at least) once!

Other Information:
I love to read, connect with friends and families on facebook and Pinterest and cook dinner most nights. I don't love to do housework, but I force myself as often as I can!

I emoticon have gone back and entered in information if I happened to accidentally forget to finish putting in water amounts. I know you can't go back and re-log in, but if it is a goal you manually track, you can go back and put in the amounts. Maybe you can readjust one of your streaks. Thanks for your comments!

My dh just dyes my hair. I'm in the same camp as you, I would NEVER let him take scissors to my hair. I go to the salon for that. But he dyes it because I always miss spots if I try to do it myself. He hates doing it, but he'd rather do it himself than have me pay $100 at the salon to get it done. He is pretty good at it, though!

emoticon just stopping by to wish you a Happy emoticon day and share a quote by Shel Silverstein:

:I will not play tug o' war. I'd rather play hug o' war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins, and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins."

I hope you celebrate National Hug Day with lots of emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
