life in and around NYC is insane

an anniversary

Two years ago today, I made a commitment to myself to lose weight and keep it off.

I never had a weight problem as a child.  I gained weight in my teen years, and I've been overweight/obese my entire adult life.

I've tried several times to lose weight, with some success.  But I was never able to stick with a weight loss plan long enough to reach my goal weight, so of course I'd gain it all back, and then some.

But two years ago, I re-joined Weight Watchers, and I started to exercise again.

I downloaded apps to my phone, I bought a Fitbit.

Later I joined a gym.

There have been some ups and downs, of course.  I quit Weight Watchers when they changed their program, and I do miss the weekly meetings sometimes.

I have had weeks -- mostly during vacations and holidays -- where I stopped following program, stopped exercising.  Gained back a few pounds each time.  But I persevered, got back into the program, got myself back on track.

The weight isn't coming off as fast as I'd like.  I've lost a total of 67 pounds  --45 pounds from March 2015 until March 2016, and the rest since March 2016.

But I am feeling good, I am feeling energetic.

I want to lose at least another 40 pounds, maybe more.  If it takes two years to do that, well, so be it.

I can do this.

I can relate to being over weight. I wasn't over weight when I was younger, but I real didn't loose the weight after my two pregnancies.
So I join a weight lost group called "T.O.P.S" and it hasn't been easy.
I usual post what I eat and hopeful it can keep my eating in tact.
