My Goal:
current GOALS

1. BIG CHANGE- find that gumption that got me with PT in an acceptable lifestyle and weight!!. Gumption coming.... loving my biggest loser team, even tho I NEVER watch that show (or any show for that matter)
2. Exercise- Goal is 1 hr/day
3. Food- log it... thinking calories and generally not too many carb... altho money is tight so that is kinda tough right now.
4. Spend TIME meal planning/ bulk/ freeze/ crockpot. How much planning? I think a several hour planning session.... with constant kid interruption cd be....4 hrs just to get a handle on the contents of my freezer/match w. healthy recipes. That's just the planning part.
5. make tickers for eating exercise, food planning

Wed- 1 hr walk-
Thurs plan = walk
Fri plan- ellipt before HS co-op
Sa plan- walk and archer
Su plan- walk... maybe try to meet someone for this

Gaol stick to low carb for 6 week boost. On first week right now and I feel so good!

How to do it? Log every day..... exercise 1 hr/day....low carb

About me:
43, SAHM 4 kids (12, 10, 9, and 2) I've lost 60 pounds in 2014! 280 to 220. Has been a super successful year. Gotta keep it going in 2015 (@204 currently) and live for L.I.F.E. Not just food. Wd like to lose at least 40 more. (170) But really want to weigh 140 which would be losing 70 more pounds.

Diets I like:
I like Low carb! It gets me cooking..gets me in love with vegetables... then I like to add my elliptical plus meet w. friends to work out! I'm so social!!

Workout of choice:
Walks with friends or elliptical to good music work best for me. Home exercise equipment- elliptical, recumbant bike, weights, and treadmill. All in storage currently. Sometimes I get in a habit of long, sweaty cardio to good music... it is so good for me. Want to be like that again!

My plan:
Plan is whole foods/low carb and adding intense exercise. No obsessing w. weigh- ins! Weigh ins are every 12 weeks or so... otherwise my head gets crazy with the scale. I need to remember what works for me and stay steady.

I need the most help with:
Encouragement! Lets do it together!

Additional Info:
Needing basic emotional survival here and opening new ways of thought/habits. Definitely feel the mom stress erasing me as a person.
