It has been over ten 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: 204,675

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.
- Reduce my carbs.
- 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 Apple watch 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).

    Hi Veronique. I hope you are feeling a bit better this morning. I know many people who are or were in your position with replacement surgery. My sister had both. She is thriving with new knees. I hear also that the better you follow the after surgery plan the better results you will have. I believe it. I need to lose more weight before I can have new knees and a hip. It's my goal. Hang in there and do the work. You'll do fine!
    Hugs
    Kathy
