You are braver than you believe...

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember: you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart, I'll always be with you.” ~ Christopher Robin to Winnie-the-Pooh (and me, to you, my precious SparkFriend!)

Update, 4/20/12:
I've been steadily maintaining at about 4 pounds from goal weight since last November or December. Considering that during those months I went through an incredibly stressful move with my family split apart by 1500 miles, a house that went through 4 contracts before finally closing, and a teenage son having to transfer schools 3 months before graduation, I feel pretty darn good about maintaining! Now that we're settled in our new home, though (and the house in Texas FINALLY sold AND closed), it's time to re-focus and get rid of those last stubborn few pounds!

Update, 11/29/11:
About 8 months after beginning my SparkJourney, I'm less than 5 pounds away from my initial goal weight (that goal subject to change!) and have met one of my most important goals: I am no longer a Type 2 diabetic, and have been taken off my diabetes medication. YES!! My back is doing great (had back surgery 12/31/11), I've gone from being a couch potato to exercising for a minimum of 30 minutes (usually 60-90 minutes), 6 days or more a week, and am even beginning to do some light jogging with the goal to run a 5K next spring if not sooner. Currently, I'm challenged with a cross-country move combined with the holiday season, but my BLC team (Light Blue Bombshells ~ they da BOMB!) and SP are helping to keep me on track!

In the beginning... March, 2011:
Last fall, as I neared my 50th birthday, I was determined to regain my health and get off prescription meds. My plan was to be at my goal weight by my birthday this May, but a disc herniation and subsequent surgery set me back a few months. I'm on track again now, and have left my full-time position to stay home and work full-time on improving my health. I decided to become involved in the SP Community so that I can motivate and be motivated by others who are facing similar challenges.

Fitness Minutes: 52,380

My Goals:
I've met my initial goals of getting off diabetes medication and reaching a "healthy" BMI. Now, my goal is simply to continue to stay within my nutrition ranges and exercise for at least 30 minutes 6 days a week. As long as I'm doing that, the scale (and smaller sizes!) WILL follow!

My Program:
I'm working to move towards a more plant-based diet. I track everything I eat in my Nutrition Tracker. I do a minimum of 30 minutes of cardio exercise each day, plus ST. A major part of my program is to participate actively on SP every day -- it's helped me to remain accountable and motivated!

Personal Information:
I'm a Christian, the mother of 2 boys in college, and married to an incredible man who is "the whole package": intelligent, funny, handsome, loving...he even cooks and cleans! And no, he doesn't have a brother! :D

Other Information:
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Hi Ferne! I was just browsing through past Panther chatter and was reminded of you. I hope you've settled nicely into your new home and love your community. We miss you over in the Panther Den. Several old friends are still there. If you ever have time, we'd love to hear how you're doing. Take care, friend.
