Updated June 2020: After reaching 351.4 in mid 2019, I lost about 10 pounds by November before my doctor urged me to join Weight Watchers. I'd done it before. Several times. Once with success. Other times, not so much. I know that you get out of it what you put into it. It's not going to work if you don't stick to the plan. My secret this time is that I found the right motivation. In mid 2019, my husband was diagnosed with Mutliple Myeloma, a type of blood cancer. There is no cure. A year previous, my dad was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and passed in early 2019. I know the two are not equal, but I also know what cancer does to you. I watched the cancer change my dad from a do it yourselfer to someone who couldn't even shower without assistance. I knew I needed to get it better shape in order to be physically able to take care of my husband down the road when he needs it. So I had the motivation, and I slowly started losing, but only 10 pounds in 5 months. In November of 2019, I realized I had another motivation: My husband has never seen me at a normal weight. I've been overweight or obese since I was 10 years old. I want to reach my goal while my husband is alive to see me to do. That puts a little pressure on me because I don't know how much time he has left. I love SparkPeople. I've been a member for over a decade, under one account or another. But simply counting calories doesn't work for me. Adding the tools of Weight Watchers to the motivation of my husband's illness has given me what I need to succeed. I've now lost over 50 pounds in the past 11 months. I have about 150 to go. It's not an easy road to take, but I am gaining confidence in my ability to reach my destination. Or at least get further along the journey than I ever have before. I'm short. My ideal weight is probably around 100 to 120. I'm a realist. I'll never be super skinny. My overall goal is 150, but that's flexible. I'm going to see how I look and how I feel as I lose and adjust my goal as I get closer. For now, I've set a bunch of smaller goals to reach. I just barely missed my goal for today - to be under 300. I'm right at 300 instead of under 300, but that's okay. I set this goal 6 months ago and I have come so close that I am proud of me. I set a goal for December - another 25 pounds, and then a goal for next June - another 25 on top of that. If I reach goals early, I will adjust. If I reach goals late, I will adjust. I've also set a series of 5% goals, with no date in mind. Just "reward celebration" stops along the way.

    I want to be the smile
    I want to see the change
    I want to be your friend
    From the start and once it starts
    It never ends
    I want to be your pal
    I want to be around
    I want to be your friend
    When you are down
    I want to be the sunshine
    On your smiling face
    I want to be the moon
    No, I want to be ocean
    Where all we do is float
    Under the sun on the rolling sea
    Oh, I want to be the sunshine
    No, I want to be the moonshine
    I want to be the night time lullaby
    When you're so afraid
    And I think I found a way
    To put a smile on your lonely face
    I think I found a way
    A way to break down all the walls
    I think I found a way to say
    I think I found a way to say hello
    I think I found a way
    Without saying anything at all

    You have my sympathy for losing your father. The pain is awful and it must be hard to even focus right now. You will always have your memories and I hope they bring you some solace.

    If you wish to fly to new heights, begin by setting your sights on a destination you can reach and then create a flight plan, a map that will be your guide.

    I am so glad you decided to join the 5% challenge. I hope it helps you as much as it helps me. Change is hard, we have to do it day by day. But if we approach it just day by day the small changes make a difference. I hope 2019 is your Year Nicole. B
