Bec Maintains a Healthy Weight

After a dry spell with Success Stories (totally my fault) we return with Bec, our latest story. I love her simple definition of success!

How are you defining your success?

A healthy weight maintained over time.

Which of your personal goals have you achieved?

Getting to a healthy weight. Starting to run more, yay!

How long did it take you?

I started January 2008, and reached WW lifetime in March of 2009.

What new goals have you set for yourself?

Running a 5k faster than my coworkers. They're all guys. And some are in good shape. :) I'd like to lose more weight, but want to wait until LO#2 (little one #2) is here (although LO is not on the way, yet).

What has changed the most about you?

Hrm. My attitude on what that snitch or treat can do to impact my health. Also, there have been some serious health issues come out of my mom's side of the family, which is pretty overweight, so it's really dawned on my how important it is (and how unusual any more) to be a healthy weight.

What did you find hardest about reaching your goal? How did you overcome it?

Sweet tooth, which I still battle, HA! Working around it when I really need it, working on healthier alternatives. I am still very much an emotional eater, and don't think trying to lose more will do much good until I figure my way around that.

How has blogging helped you reach your goals?

Venting a bit... but really, reading blogs has perhaps helped me more. Knowing that there are others seeing/doing similar things.

Any tips for those that share you goal?

  • Be patient, there will be setbacks. It's how you continue that makes the difference.
  • Set smaller goals (5lbs, 10lbs) and work toward that.
  • For me, drinking my water, portion control, and veggie intake are key factors. When I am not careful about these, I'm not as full, and everything seems to slide.
  • If you need that cookie, eat it, LOL, but balance it out. For me it was the "Fake"-accino at my work cafeteria. Now, I mix 1/2 decaf and 1/2 of the syrupy stuff. To me, the 3pts is worth it.

Bec, you better let us know when you beat those guys! I love that type of goal too! :)
