January 2020 update:
I've been stumbling all over the place.
Looking at my 2019 goal - it was not met. I'm carrying it over to 2020: Build more activity into every day.

January 2019 update:
Still working on those last 10 lbs...
2018 was a lazy year, as far as physical activity goes.
I'm lucky I was able to maintain.
I'll be building more activity into my days in 2019.
Strategy is to plan it, schedule it, do it!

January 2018 update:
10 unwanted pounds have found their way back onto my hips and thighs... Goal is to lose those again.
It's slow going.

Member since March 2007.

Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 10+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Prior to finding SP I had lost 30 lbs doing WW online but was unable to lose the last 10.

After 6 years of fine-tuning, trial and error, I finally reached my ultimate weight goal in early 2013, and am now maintaining within a +/- 3% radius.

I'm hanging out and hanging in, still fine-tuning as I go. Maintenance does not mean you have it all figured out...

My Goals:

My Program:
1. Eat mostly clean and unprocessed
I believe there are no "forbidden foods". Instead I am focusing on the quality of what I eat.
2. Drink plenty of water
This has been a challenge - always.
3. Be active
Zumba, yoga, and hiking are my favorite pastimes.
4. Get enough sleep
Goal is 8 hours.
5. Manage stress
My stress managing methods are exercise, music, and meditation/yoga.
6. Positive attitude
Turn can't into can, and don't into do.
7. Gratitude
Appreciate who I am, where I am, and what I can do.

    Thank you for reading my blog.
    Joe & I plan to increase our time kayaking/canoeing gradually. So glad I realized my runkeeper app works out on the water too, so I can track how far we’ve gone.

    When we bought the house 25 years ago, I said I would never do anything other than look at ihe lake from our deck with a drink in my hand. I still don't like being IN the water, but have gradually begun to like being ON it.

    Boo on late dinners!
    I'd always laughed at my aging parents' 5PM dinners until I realized later I didn't enjoy tasting them when I lay down at night! Now I try to eat about 4 hours before I go to bed and make lunch my bigger meal.

    Lesson learned!

    I'll let you know if I hear anything. WATERMELLEN says she tried but received a reply to her request with a negative result.

    Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog! Yeah, I can't keep peanut butter in my kitchen either. It's probably my number one binge food. My grandmother used to cook and snack on peanut butter all the time, so it's something that I very strongly associate with my childhood and comfort eating. Definitely a food without brakes for me!

    Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. A few more months and I will have the ponytail of my youth. I kind of like it.
