I am a 40 something year old mother of 3. I have two jobs, 3 cats, and a husband with a busy job. When I was a teenager, I ate whatever I wanted. I wish I had the body now that I thought was fat way back then. During college, I started gaining weight. When I was in my 20's, I lost weight several times...low fat diets, weight watchers, but the weight always came back. Add kids, age, and a stressful life, it's doubly hard now.

I've come to accept that I have to monitor what I eat. I'm realistic enough that I know that I can't always avoid eating crap. But, I can avoid how much I eat. My body only "needs" a certain amount of food. No need to overfill the gas tank. Just like at the gas station, that excess doesn't do any good. But, instead of running out onto the ground, excess food hangs around and causes problems.

My goal is to lose 85 pounds and keep it off. One of my smaller goals is to get below 170. Since my second baby, that seems to be an issue for me. My body likes to be stuck there.

    thanks for the comment on my blog. when i write my blogs, i often MIS assume that my sp friends are the ones reading it and they all already know my story.
    to be precise, i am able to walk now and i do almost daily. my foot is healed but i still do have some of pain from the break. the doc told me its probably just my life now, nothing much they can do.
    i just wanted to clear that up, lol.
    i love walking just about more than anything. but i do need to find new ways to incorporate more exercise and change it up.
    i appreciate all your help and comments. emoticon

    Thanks for stopping by my "ballgame" blog the other day--your comments were right on track; if I can't indulge once in a while I'll never be able to sustain any progress. But I'm back on track and like you said, the occasional digression just serves to keep life interesting!
    Thanks again!

    I need to look into that book by Beck that you suggested. I do get into the all or nothing thinking mentality. You are right. I'm sure its a good read. I will work on this. Thanking for your encouragement and support!!! Have a great day!!!
