Like so many others, over the years I have let the weight creep up on me. I have been a yo-yo dieter for the last 15 years and can't count the times I have lost weight only to gain it back. I have let myself become addicted to junk/fast food, to the point that eating healthy food is not appealing. I know my tastebuds have to be retrained to enjoy healthy food, and with the help of Sparkpeople I AM GOING TO SUCCEED!!! I especially love the Nutrition Tracker. You just don't realize how poor your nutrition is until you see it in a graph right before your eyes. I was eat up with perfectionism--if I couldn't be perfect in sticking to a plan, I just did nothing. WRONG thing to do. FORGIVE, FORGET AND FORGE AHEAD!!! That's my new motto, and I CAN AND WILL DO THIS!!!!

My Goals:
I want to feel good again, have more energy, less aches and pains, and lose 40 pounds. I want to break the fast food habit and train my body to CRAVE healthy foods.

My Program:
I am trying to live by the rule "If you bite it, write it, if you nibble it, scribble it" to keep myself accountable for what I eat. I am moving more and doing strength training a minimum of 2 days a week, trying to get in cardio on at least 3 days a week, more when I can.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I'm tired of feeling older than I am. I want to feel younger, have more energy, be able to play with my grandchildren and feel good while I am doing it. I want to eat to live and not live to eat. I have been a yoyo dieter long enough and want to rid myself of that black "need to lose weight" cloud that is aways hanging over my head.

    I think I am going to have to eat some junk to shake things up a bit. The scale has not moved this past week and I have been sticking to my plan religiously, exercising. I should have lost. Sometimes when I get in a rut, if I go off the plan for a day or two, then get back on it, I have a good loss. Think I will give it a whirl.
