It has been over nine years that I stopped smoking, and decided to work on my excess weight.

I have been very successful with the no smoking part, but not so much with the losing weight... I keep losing, then gaining back. And the cycle starts again.

It is time now to re-evaluate what I am doing wrong. I think I stay on a diet that is too restrictive, and when I allow myself a little "break", this turns into several months of over eating.

Raising a handicapped son all by my myself is stressful, but I tend to use this as an excuse to over eat.

I have severe arthritis and it is urgent for me to lose weight.

So, let's pick up the momentum and see what we can do to get back on track, shall we?


Member Since: 1/18/2009

Fitness Minutes: 200,895

My Goals:
Lose weight s-l-o-w-l-y while continuing to stay smoke-free (N.O.P.E = Not One Puff Ever).

Rewarding myself - all new, starting in 2017-
-10 pounds:
-20 pounds:
-30 pounds:
-40 pounds:
-50 pounds:


My Program:
- Eat balanced meals, not too restrictive calorie-wise.
- Watch my afternoon snacks
- Increase my vegetable and fruit consumption.
- Exercise every day, even if this is only 10 minutes a day. I need to keep moving because of arthritis that is getting worse when I am inactive. My new Fitbit will help with this.



Personal Information:
I am originally from France, but now live in Virginia. We go every year on vacation on Lake Superior (in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan) and we love it there!


Other Information:
I recently joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and it has brought wonderful changes in my life.
I love to read (theology and history books) and I listen to classical music (J.S. Bach is my favorite composer).

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yes, I'm excited about my travel plans, but hope I get the new kitchen soon enough to enjoy it a bit before I take off on my round of trips! Good weekend to you!

    Happy Friday! I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Since it is the holiday weekend, I thought I’d keep the theme going - especially since most of us will be eating leftovers sometime this weekend!

    emoticon "Why didn't the cook season the Thanksgiving turkey?" "There was no thyme!"

    emoticon "What kind of noise does a limping turkey make?" "Wobble, wobble."

    emoticon "Why didn't the pilgrim want to make the bread?" "It's a crummy job."

    emoticon Q: Why were the cranberries red?
    A: They saw the turkey dressing.

    emoticon "Knock knock!"
    "Who's there?"
    "Tamara."
    "Tamara who?"
    "Tamara we'll eat all the leftovers!"

    emoticon "Knock knock!"
    "Who's there?" "
    Arthur."
    "Arthur who?"
    "Arthur any leftovers?"

    What’s the difference between in-laws and outlaws?
    Outlaws are wanted.

    I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving. Have a wonderful weekend!
