2013: I will not be very active on SP; I want to avoid the diet mentality and to learn to eat normally, trusting my body's cues.
2012: Followed WW, then low carb, then dieting 2 days a week (sometimes known as 5:2 diet), lost approx. 50 lbs
2010: In spite of being obese, my intent at this time is not to lose weight quickly, but rather to have a more normal relationship to food, to learn to recognise and honour the hunger and satiety signals my body gives me and thereby stop yo-yoing.

Member Since: 5/1/2010

Fitness Minutes: 346

My Goals:
2013 - Learn normal eating (eat when I am hungry, stop when I am full). I am not trying to lose weight, but if I am successful, I expect my weight to go down again slowly.

2012 - Initially lose 10% of my weight, compared to my peak 2011 weight. Done.
Weigh less than 300 lbs. Done.
Lose 15% of 2011 peak weight (291 lbs) and 52 pounds in 52 weeks (290.5 lbs) by December 8, 2012.
Not done yet.

Monitor my food intake using Weight Watchers Points Plus.
Gradually increase the amount of exercise in my life; I dream of one day being able to do yoga again and to walk outside daily as I was able to do in my youth.

2010 -To cut my calorie intake by an average of 300 calories per day and possibly lose up to 31 pounds by the end of the first year. Once the weight is lost, to never, ever gain it back. To eat only when hungry, and to stop eating when full.

My Program:
2013- Apply principles of Eating Competence.
2012 - Weight Watchers Points Plus
- Exercise at home: Stott Pilates matwork (easiest prep versions), exercise balls and Dyna-bands; armchair exercise.

Personal Information:
I am French Canadian and I live in Ottawa, Ontario.

I have fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and am housebound almost all the time.

I love almost all healthy foods (yes, even tofu, flax seed oil and dark leafy green vegetables, I'm weird that way). I don't really like foods commonly known as junk food, I almost never eat them.

I am very interested in the traditional diets of the people of the islands of Crete (Grece) and Okinawa (Japan), where very many people become healthy and vigorous centenarians. They hold the secret to a truly healthy way of living.

Other Information:
I am an avid reader and greatly appreciate my public library's delivery service for homebound members.

    I got a new bathroom scale because the old one quit the day after the 10-year warranty ran out. So if I can believe this new scale (which is also a Weight Watchers scale as the previous one was), I have lost 19 pounds since February 23. Surprising, because my goal is not to lose weight, I am following a low-carbohydrate WOE for health reasons. Of course, losing weight can also help me regain more well-being. I want to start weighing in kilos, not sure whether I can manage that on Sparkpeople without it affecting all the historical data contained here.

    So the answer is no, I can't switch midway to the metric system. My weight for today is 334 lb and when I clicked metric, the system wrote that I weigh 334 kg. Too bad. So I will weigh myself in kilos and if I want to post it on SP, I will have to do the conversion before entering the new data.

    I set my ticker weight goal at 289, because that is the weight I had reached on Dec.8 2012, after losing 59 pounds in 363 days with the help of my Spark friends. However, I am eating low-carbohydrate again for health reasons, not for the purpose of losing any weight. Wish all my Spark friends are well!
