Jan. 2011 well I have been away to much and for to long so I am back hopefully for awhile. I have maintaned my 20 pound weight loss and have been coasting at my new weight for 5 months and i am ready to take the next step to another 20 pounds.

I purchased the book "A course in weight loss" and I am now working threw the issues that make it hard for me to eat right and loose weight and o boy did I open that pandora box and wish I can close the lid tight and never open it again, but if I do I will never heal that part of me that keeps me fat, so, with much anxiety and sadness rearing it's ugly head I am trying to be coragouse and stick with working it out and loosing weight while I'm at it.

so I am gonna need to lean on you all and feel free to lean on me, could be a bumpy ride!

Fitness Minutes: 1,710

My Goals:
be healthier and stronger so I can lead a more active lifestyle, on the plus I did backpack for the first time in years last summer on a 10km mountian hike, I must say I am proud of that accomplishement, and I know with more weight loss I will be able to do more of that and easier.

My Program:
July 11 2010
I am 169.5 and doing my happy dance. I lost 20 pounds and another 30 pounds to go.

My plan; no food is off limits, but, I only eat when I am hungry, and I only eat till I feel satisfied NOT full. I don't eat two hour before bed, and I eat my big meal for lunch and a lighter meal for supper. If I want dessert I count it as a meal. I still try to keep what I eat as natural as possible and uncooked most of the time and only eat meat 2 times a week for nutritional purposes.

I work out 30 min. 3 times a week and do weights 2 times a week. Weight loss is slow but it's what I can work with, what I can maintane for life, and that's what I really had to figure out, what plan I can make up that I can do for life, because unless I can do this for life I won't maintane the weight loss.

Personal Information:
I like to live large (no not being overweight) and experience as much as I can in life.

I am childless and sometimes I let it get the best of me and fall into depression but for the most part I try to be optimistic and positive, after all our thoughts create our reality

Other Information:
life is meant to be lived forward, not backwords.

If I can learn to harness these emotions and use them more productively instead of eating, maybe I can really get down to business with loosing weight??

    Yes, this is our first child. I'm happy but stressed. DH is happy. People said he had a glow already LOL

    I've had some morning sickness (definitely should be called something else) and very little appetite. I still have to eat though, especially since my hypoglycemia is worse in the first trimester.

    Hi there...that background pic is from Santorini Greece...and no, I don't live there...LOL...I can dream though! My sister and I went a couple years ago and it was the trip of a lifetime. Absolutely gorgeous! We were like Laverne and Shirley go to Greece...very comical!

    I'm still around. I haven't been very active lately. I found out last month I'm pregnant too. So this delays the weight loss. I've gained back my weight I lost and was gettin ready to try to start back when I found out I was pregnant. So now I'm aiming for a healthy pregnancy and delivery. I'll work on weight loss afterwards. Glad to see you back!

    Just wanted to stop by and say thank you for your comment on my blog last week. I will have to check out that book you mentioned. Now if only I could find the time to spend to read it! You made my day a little brighter and I just wanted to say thanks. Pris
