Wow! I am impressed. You are transforming in front of your/our eyes. I love your "object in motion" philosophy. It will see you through to a complete new way of life for the rest of your long life. What an excellent example you are to everyone within your reach. Again, wow.

I predict you will eventually reach the 120s. It is inevitable, since you are on a foolproof course of action. And, as I can surmise from your fitness points, you are exercising, also. Eating less and moving more. The secret's out!

Spark On! Forever!

Eliminate "I will try". Replace with "I will".
You are now ready to succeed.
Let's go.

Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die tomorrow.

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

What excellent progress - not only on actually dropping the pounds but on shaping up your outlook and attitude. I think that's what really carries us through and makes the lifestyle change sustainable. Keep on Sparking!

You’ll get where you want to go as long as you are taking more steps in the right direction than the wrong one.

Two and a half months of tracking what I eat and making efforts to be more active on a regular basis, I am feeling great!

When I started, I felt tired, heavy and somewhat depressed. It was difficult for me to get up and moving and I found myself always wishing for a nap. I'm a bit of a geek, but the mantra I began to repeat to myself was "objects at rest stay at rest, objects in motion stay in motion." I had a choice, remain "at rest" and expect no progress, or begin to get myself "in motion," knowing that a little motion could create a lot of momentum.

It began with getting out of bed early to do the dishes or laundry and evolved to walking the dog and a weekly Zumba class. This soon became two Zumba classes each week and I learned to schedule out my time so that there was no way I could miss them, or make excuses not to go.

This motion, setting small goals, continued as I found other ways to connect with my body, via healthy whole foods cooking, Yin Yoga and mediation.

I began to think about all that I could let go of- unhappiness, discouragement and the feeling that I could never be other than what I was. I gave myself over to the process- working to set things in motion and each day trying to let go a little more.

There have been up days and down days- times of success and stagnation, though I am learning more about myself and who I can become when I give myself up to potential and not what currently is.

In my mind, I have met a landmark today, officially getting rid of 20 pounds and one third of the way to my goal of loosing 60 pounds by mid December. I commend myself for the progress that has been made, knowing that this is not the end of the journey, but the beginning of a new life.
