Richard and Sandy at Trevi Fountain in Rome January 2008, 40 pounds lighter!
Cruise June 2009, my niece Wendy, Me, my mom and my daughter Holly

My Goal:
To reach my goal I need to~
Stop self sabatoging when I get close to goal!!!
Treadmill 1 hour 6 days a week
Workout on ball 4-5 days a week
Stick to new lifestyle using Medifast foods
Drink plenty of water
Believe it! Achieve it!
Continue to seek God in all things!!!

The only thing that can stop you is YOU.. don't be your worst enemy. when your close, dont get scared and start to self sabotage.. you are worth this.. whatever it is your reaching for you deserve it as much as anyone..

And then for 30...................... overnight getaway with Richard
At 40 pounds I will................. Spa day- massage, facial, pedicure
50 pounds..............................New hairstyle to show off my thinner face!
60 pounds 176.......................Join a health club
70 pounds 166......................I am thinking this will be my goal weight so it will be a trip to So Cal with Cathy and purchase a new wardrobe, give away ALL my "big girl" clothing (o:
Keep it off for 1 year........ A "mega" trip of some kind, more than likely heading to the South Pacific for a month! Or some kind of wonderful cruise....but must keep the weight off while on this mega vacation (o: travel is a fantastic motivator....remind myself daily of my successes and don't focus on the set backs, they are not failures, they are opportunities for me to learn. After this year I will of also been working out and so whatever I am not able to tighten up with exercise I will go to Scripps and see what I can do surgically (tighten tummy and lift breasts will be my guess- maybe a mini face lift) This will be for my 55th birthday...eeeeyyyyykkkkk!

10 things I must do to keep on track.....
1. Watch for hidden carbs.
2. 5 and 1 every day.
3. Drink my water!
5. Keep to 2 cups of coffee a day.
6. Log on to PT daily with my food and to check in with my pt family!
7. See it, believe it, achieve it!
8. Read my goals daily
9. Positive self talk
10. Recognize hidden stress
Be mindful of what I eat each and every day. Stay away from the processed food as much as I can (o:

About me:
I am 54 years old, 5'11" and after almost reaching goal have gained 30 pounds. Became an "empty nester" in October 06. I have been married for 34 years to a very wonderful and supportive man. He is my best friend and makes me laugh daily! We have 3 adult children (2 boys 1 girl) , 2 are in good marriages and our oldest is happy to be out of his marriage and shares custody of his 10 year old son with his ex.. They did give me the most wonderful grandson, he is one of the main reasons for getting and staying healthy. I want to be around when he grows up and has children, I have 9 grandchildren with grandchildren 8&9 born on December 10th (twins!) I work from home and also am a caregiver to my elderly mom.I became a health coach with Take Shape for Life using Medifast products and love love love helping others get to a healthy weight!! I love to travel, and we travel quite often. I have 2 bulging disc's which explains the back pain I have been in for the last 18 months, hoping with physical exercise and losing the weight I can get my back stronger and pain free!!

Diets I like:
I started Medifast in December of 2010 weighing in at 248 and weighed 182 on April 2012. I have gained 36 pounds in the last year (ugh!) I did fat smash from June 07to Januar2010. I really want to lose the weight once and for all by the time I turn 55 in June.

Workout of choice:
Riding our tandem bike with my husband. swim in the summer in our pool

My plan:
Riding my bike 100 miles a week. Work out with my WII 2 days a week-yoga Work out with my exercise ball 2 days a week Eat medifast foods 5 and 1 plan drink plenty of water get 7-8 hours sleep a night

I need the most help with:
Staying focused....

Additional Info:
I have never really used the internet like this, so it will be interesting to me to see if this works. I was very thin as a teen (5'11" 125 pounds) then met my future husband and went up to 150. Stayed in the 150-170's until my 30's. Then went up to almost 200 in my late 30's. And now other than one year when I did Jenny Craig I've been in the 210-250 range. I don't think I'll ever get below 170, but I'd be happy in the 170's, thats a size 12 and I like being that size. Plus if I get too thin I know the wrinkles that are currently filled in with fat will start to appear! I am loving PT, love my teams and groups I am blessed (<:
