Start Weight:(25 Aug 13) 192.2 lb
Current Weight:(11 May 15) 174.0 lb
Goal Weight:120.0 lb
following: MY WAY
performance: losing 1.0 lb a week

October I turned 50.
Most of my life my weight fluctuated between a size 4 & 7.
After giving birth to my children I remained between a 4 & 7.
I didn't become obese (which is what my weight is considered for my 5'2" frame) until I CHOSE to be.

When my boys voiced concerns over my weight I decided to do something about it. I shrunk my size in half(24-14)but wanted to halve it again to be at my "happy,feel good" weight/size.

But life isn't always as planned & I allowed my life to become derailed for the last time in this regard.

Today, I am once again asking my body to forgive me: Not with words of promises broken,but with all that I will do(& wont do)from this day forward for the rest of my life.

This day I begin not just a weight loss program but a life-long transformation journey! My body & I have a long road to travel,but that's okay...we are enjoying getting to know each other again.

"We can not become who we want to be by remaining who we are."

Update-10/7/2014-Tomorrow marks a year since I wrote the above words & I still feel the same! :) Altho' my weigh in's show an increase,my journals show that I am still ever present in my "Transformation Journey" even if not as often as I prefer.

My overall goal is to reshape my body & to be healthy & happy with what *I* see. :)

My Measurements-46/47/42... My Goal-36/24/36 ...Inches To Lose-39
Ideal Goal Weight-120. My #'s are not set in stone. They are the #'s I had when I felt happiest & healthy. This journey is to transform my MIND as well as my BODY so GONE are the days of setting myself up for disappointment by claiming a # or a date in which I MUST reach my goals in order to be successful. Success to ME is "doing" what I "aim" to do. And that's on-going....for life. :)

*11/30/2014* 180 lbs....I'm learning what #'s *I* need to succeed!

Just a heads up to all my female buddies.
I (& I don't think I'm the only one),received a private message today from a man who only joined our community TODAY. Not that anything is wrong in that ,however his private message was asking me to: please give him my email address so that he can tell me more about himself so we could get to know each other better,as he is not on fatsecret very much.(He included his email address for me).
For someone who just joined today & then say he isn't on here very often didn't sound like a person really interested in weight loss, to me.For someone to say they would like to get to know me better perhaps he should have READ my Bio(he would have learned that I am married---or perhaps he did & just didn't mind).Either way,I DID reply telling him that this is not a dating site but a weight loss site & that is the reason I am here. I then reported it to the FatSecret staff & my husband (who I might say laughed because he is not worried in the least of losing his wife or of his wife being duped Smile ) I got a *Keeper* Smile
I encourage any who have had this or a similar experience to report it as abuse to the proper authority. Better safe than sorry.

Is it possible to lose weight without physical exercise?
It IS possible to lose weight without physical activity Smile If it is too painful that you just can NOT be physical,then be aware of what you pass over your lips.What goes in our mouths WILL show up on the body. As with any kind of machine,certain products are better for it than others.YOUR body IS a machine,what YOU have put into it has resulted in how it performs.To reverse the damage that has been done,YOU must decide that YOU will take BETTER care of it(you asking for advice can be a step toward taking better care of it--FOLLOWING well informed & accurate knowledge can be YOU putting one foot in front of the other on your road to recovery) Smile I wish YOU well by being well informed! Smile

Does Wine Help With Weight Loss?
SouthernGirl, It's an ongoing discussion with me & Keeper. I appreciated the question you posted just so I could share with him what others thoughts are on the topic. I jokingly tell him he's a Wine-O Laughing He *doesn't* find my joke funny Confused
