following: newmanda's own diet
performance: losing 12.6 lb a week

I am a 58 year old married mother of one 20 year old daughter. I live in Middletown, DE

I have struggled with my weight for most of the past 30+ years. At one point in time I lost over 100 pounds but over the course of time regained the weight and a few more pounds. I have tried lots of diets and they simply do not work. I am tired of this roller coaster. I realize that it is up to me to change my eating habits and this is not something you do for a couple months. This needs to be a lifetime commitment.

Since January 2016, I was "retired" from DuPont after 39 years. Shortly after that my Mom passed away. With my daughter off to college my husband and I decided to sell our house and downsize to a 55+ community. 2016 has been a year of changes but we are finally settled in our new home and now it is time to take care of myself so I can enjoy a long and healthy retirement.
I have high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and am borderline diabetic. I need to take control of my weight for once and for all - No excuses.

Recommitment and goals are:

Goal #1: Restart diet on February 8th. Weighed in 223bs. Goal 150lbs - 1 lb at a time.

Goal #2: Signed up for the Delaware Weigh To Go challenge.

Goal #3: Lose first 15 lbs by mid-March.

Goal #4: Start walking - 1 trip around the block at a time. (Have herniated discs but have to try)

Goal #5: Start yoga

Got to make good choices and get moving!
