Not stressing that I'm still in the first 5 lbs of losing weight because I know there have been some days that just haven't been that great (like when 3/4 of the family wants McDonald's, so....yeah). BUT...4.4 lbs isn't really anything to shrug off. It helps that I'm making more meals at home and am increasing my yogurt flavors (for years I would only eat blueberry....then Greek yogurt hit the market and I'm trying more different flavors...currently at the top of the list is strawberry Chobani, fruit at the bottom....still a little scared to try vanilla or any of the "odd" fruits).

So, I know where the hazards are and I'll make better choices. I was *very* pleased with myself when I had 1 serving of California Pizza Kitchen's white pizza - I can easily eat the entire thing in one sitting if I wasn't being conscious about amounts. SO happy, but husband was freaked out. He also finds it funny that I count out Pringle's and don't eat any more than the number in a single serving...but hey, it's working for me, so I'll keep doing it.

One thing I'm struggling with is getting breakfast every morning, so that's where I'm going to focus for the next week...making sure I get something even if it's just a yogurt or protein bar (or both depending on the day!)

Fitness Minutes: 6,978

My Goals:
drop about 30 pounds, give or take - glucose levels not where they need to be, and knees are starting to have problems, so.....drop the weight, get in better shape

My Program:
resistance bands, walking, hopefully Wii workouts....not sure what else I'll add as I'm older and less flexible than I used to be and have had knee injuries and a broken foot in the past year....yeah, getting older is so much

Personal Information:
hmm, born in Baltimore, MD, lived in VA, then MD, then Panama, then NY, finally back to VA where I hope I'll stay for a while. Have had previous food-issues, and consider myself a recovering anorexic (yes, even though I'm overweight, I can go into starvation mode when under extreme stress).
