See how the lilies ... grow. They do not labor or spin. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow.

"But those who hope on the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."

~Isaiah 40:31


Having gained more than 40 lbs from 2005 - 2007, I am seeking support to regain a healthy weight, manage stress, and keep portions under control. I also need support to exercise on a regular basis and avoid the munchies.

At 5'7", my starting weight was 202 lbs. My target weight is 145 lbs. I know I can do it because I have weighed 135 lbs and less in the past. It's amazing how fast the pounds can slip in on you.

During 2008, I lost 20 lbs by making very minor changes in diet and activity level. I plateaued at 177 lbs for the last 4 months of 2008 and will need to ramp it up a bit to lose an additional 20 lbs in 2009.

I stepped up my activity level in February 2009 and I am thrilled to report that I dropped to 173 lbs and currently weigh 168 lbs!

March 30, 2009 - 160 lbs
April 30, 2009 - 150 lbs
May 30, 2009 - 145 lbs

In 2009, I claim prosperity, good health, and joy!

My Goals:
My goals include maintaining the presence of mind to think and behave as a healthy person. Although I am equipped with the knowledge and tools to do this, I need help reinforcing core behaviors during times of stress.

My Program:
To achieve my goals I have increased my consumption of vegetables & fruits, decreased the frequency of restaurant dining, and consume whole wheat bread & pasta. I also walk 2 miles every day and perform cardio 4 days a week. Eventually, I would like to add 4 days per week of strength training to my program.

Personal Information:
I have finally accepted that the best route to long-term weight loss is slow and steady. I lost 20 lbs in 2008, and I would like to lose 20 lbs more in 2009.

As you can tell by my pictures, I am a nature lover. The natural beauty of this world inspires me to stay healthy. We are truly blessed to have a loving Creator who will always provide abundantly.
