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: 25,851

Fitness Minutes: 11,470

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!
