BigT-On the Road Again

New Year, New Start (AGAIN)! Time to re-adjust my sails once again.
When I joined Sparks 7 years ago, I was a broken person...both mentally and physically. The support of the wonderful people I met here helped me to heal. I lost weight and gained my confidence again.

New Year, New Start (AGAIN)! Time to re-adjust my sails once again.
When I joined Sparks 7 years ago, I was a broken person...both mentally and physically. The support of the wonderful people I met here helped me to heal. I lost weight and gained my confidence again.
Then my life not only got upside down, but sideways and has been a whirling ever since. It has taken me a long time to come to grips with all these ever evolving changes. Just when I get confident in my job, it gets changed again. Since coming to my job in Ohio, I have held 3 positions, and changed teams 5 times.
Friday I start on a new team yet again. All new employees to try and figure out and motivate. It is hard to work on myself when I am constantly having to work on others....but I am still trying. I turn 60 in September of this year and I want to meet the new decade in better shape than I am now.

Member Since: 7/11/2008

SparkPoints: 66,180

Fitness Minutes: 94,401

My Goals:
I joined SP in July, 2008, lost 46 lbs. and was doing a good job of keeping it off...until May of 2010. That is when my world as I knew it ceased to be. In just two short months I had to change jobs (after 30 years), change states (after 53 years) and leave all my family behind. I put back on 20+ of those hard fought lbs. I am trying to get a handle on my eating (and my attitude) once again. I want to lose this "Ohio" weight, I just need to find my motivation again.

My Program:
I have started back on a low carb diet and I am getting back to tracking my food and get my 8+ glasses of water a day. I plan to ride my bike as much as I can as soon as the weather allows. I also am going to an arthritis water exercise class. I have a Jawbone UP2 that I am using to track my steps and I am working up to 10000 steps a day.

Personal Information:
I am from a small town in the mountains of VA. I am 55 years young. I have two grown children, two beautiful granddaughters, one 4 years old and the other almost 12 years old. After working at the same place for almost 30 years, I had to transfer to keep my job. I had to move to another state after living in the same county for 53 years. It has been a tough 5 years for me (with 3 more to go until retirement), but I am a survivor and I will make it.

Other Information:
I love to ride my bicycle, go to the beach, and play with my granddaughters as much as possible. I especially like it when I can do all three at the same time!
I love reading good mysteries, watching British mystery shows, and listening to good rock music...old or new.

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again - Author unknown
