It has been over nine years that I stopped smoking, and decided to work on my excess weight.

I have been very successful with the no smoking part, but not so much with the losing weight... I keep losing, then gaining back. And the cycle starts again.

It is time now to re-evaluate what I am doing wrong. I think I stay on a diet that is too restrictive, and when I allow myself a little "break", this turns into several months of over eating.

Raising a handicapped son all by my myself is stressful, but I tend to use this as an excuse to over eat.

I have severe arthritis and it is urgent for me to lose weight.

So, let's pick up the momentum and see what we can do to get back on track, shall we?

Fitness Minutes: 197,415

My Goals:
Lose weight s-l-o-w-l-y while continuing to stay smoke-free (N.O.P.E = Not One Puff Ever).

Rewarding myself - all new, starting in 2017-
-10 pounds:
-20 pounds:
-30 pounds:
-40 pounds:
-50 pounds:


My Program:
- Eat balanced meals, not too restrictive calorie-wise.
- Watch my afternoon snacks
- Increase my vegetable and fruit consumption.
- Exercise every day, even if this is only 10 minutes a day. I need to keep moving because of arthritis that is getting worse when I am inactive. My new Fitbit will help with this.



Personal Information:
I am originally from France, but now live in Virginia. We go every year on vacation on Lake Superior (in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan) and we love it there!


Other Information:
I recently joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and it has brought wonderful changes in my life.
I love to read (theology and history books) and I listen to classical music (J.S. Bach is my favorite composer).

    Aahhh . . . yes, we’ve finally arrived at our favorite day of the week - Friday! Today’s jokes and cartoons are in honor of National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. Who knew there was actually a day set aside to tackle this maligned task! This ties in perfectly with our Sparking, and of course, cleaning out the ol’ frig is a great way to get ready, and make more room there for the big T-Day in just a couple of weeks!
    Time to get our “Friday Happy” on!

    I bought my daughter a refrigerator for her new kitchen remodel. You should have seen her face light up when she opened it!

    I had a rude awakening this morning. Apparently my freezer stopped working during the night, but it’s all just water under the fridge now.

    My grandfather made his fortune in the appliance business. He’s a fridge magnate.

    While I was walking through the kitchen I heard the faint chorus of the song Stayin’ Alive. It was just the chives talkin’.

    If you’re not supposed to eat at night, why is there a light in the refrigerator?

    Gotta go! My refrigerator’s been running, and I really need to catch it!

    I’m sorry your knee is giving you fits. I remember those days, I fell quite a bit before I became bionic. To me it simply reinforced it was time. Ice, elevate, heat, lidocaine roll...whatever helps you. May today be better...
