I haven't been to 3FC for awhile, and I think my old support group has disintegrated, so, I thought I'd post my new goals to everyone here.
I started on a weight-loss journey back in March 2005, and for some reason, after many false starts in the last 10 years, everything just clicked. I ate a diet of whole grains, lots of fruits and veggies, cut my sugar and fat intake WAY back and journaled everything that went into my mouth (using fitday.com). By August I had lost 43 lbs, weighed 157 lbs and went from a size 18/20 to a size 12. I was also much fitter, mostly from doing yoga, but also from walking often and running a little. ( I have 3 little kids, so getting out to excercise is limited--and when I take them with me, it's s l o w.)
After attending a family reunion in late August, I relaxed my regimen some and didn't journal anymore. I fell out of the habit for some reason. I also didn't practice my yoga regulary, finally stopping altogether.
I did fine for some time, maintaining my weight around a range of 158-162, but I lost the muscle tone I had, and don't look nearly as good in my size 12 pants (much less naked!). And now, I am back up to 168!
So, I'm back with the new year to get back on track and not only lose what I gained back, but get to my goal of 135 lbs. I need this forum for support and will check in regularly. Hopefully I will run into my old buddies and make new friends as well.
Happy New Year everyone! Let's do it!
