Wisdom Wednesday

Do you have any specific long-term goals? What is one and how do you plan on reaching it?

Losing weight. It's long-term because it takes time, and I've found that doing it bits at a time works best for long-term results.

In January 2006, I finally felt that it was time to do something. I started off at 235 pounds (gasp!). I carry my weight halfway decent so many people couldn't believe I weighed that ever, but scales don't lie (though sometimes I wonder).

I was watching what I was eating, trying to cut out the nighttime snacking, and started exercising. It really helped and I ended up losing 35 pounds. I didn't reach my goal at the time, but how can you really get upset over losing over thirty pounds? I was damn proud of myself! I went down 2 sizes as well, which was probably even more exciting than the weight loss itself!!!

I'm happy to say that I haven't done anything in regards to weight loss throughout 2007, but I have maintained and even dipped to a low of 197.

I will be starting again in January 2008, and right now I'm still thinking about what my goals will be.

Actually, I managed to lose that 35 pounds right before meeting you and everyone else, and still managed to drop some more weight during that time. Honestly - how I've maintained so well - I don't know - but I'm NOT going to complain!!!!!
