At goal and setting new ones!

Been maintaining for a while, but ready to work towards a new goal. Always learning and working towards a healthier me!

___________________

Almost to goal update

I've been 5 lbs from my goal weight for a while, but have accomplished so much! The biggest things that have helped me to get this far is eating the best that I can, tracking everything, and daily walking.
----------------------------------
Here to lose weight to feel better about myself and be healthy. Been down this road before and really don't want to do it again so I am working very hard to make better choices when it comes to food and exercise.

My Major Motivation Points:
Personal Appearance: I want to:
-Wear a swim suit on the beach (and look good in it!)
-Firm up what I have
-Keep my thighs from rubbing
-Look better naked!
-Have my clothes fit better

Health & Fitness: I want to:
-Live longer
-Have more energy
-Climb stairs without being winded
-Not feel/get sick all the time
-Feel and be stronger

Friends, Family and Social Life: I want to:
-Play and be active with my kids
-Stick around to see my grandkids grow up
-Do more active things with my spouse/siginicant other

Everyday Signs and Situations: I want to:
-Be more confident in myself, with better self esteem
-Prove to myself that I can do it.

    Your comment on my blog was just so perfectly worded! And you are SO RIGHT! We can only control our habits and that’s the most important key.

    I couldn't agree more! I definitely think easing myself back into this is the way to go.

    Hi Ali, thanks very much for your comment on my Spark page. It was a very welcome but surprising compliment! I am feeling good right now, okay so I've been eating 'poorly' for a few days but this time last week I was at my goal weight and was walking 'tall' and feeling confident! Hope life is treating you well. Guess your children are all off school for the summer, hope that goes okay for you. Love and hugs Donna xxx emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you for the comment on my blog about losing my grandson. God has been faithful and given me more avenues to heal since then. It gets a little easier with time, although I suspect I'll never be completely over it. I've learned putting my trust in Him is my only hope of both healing from personal loss AND losing weight. On my own I'm pretty much useless.
