Hello.... I'm Jeanie!
Just a little bit about me..I am a single mother of two great college kids living in WI. Since I have entered my 50's now, I am realizing how much I really do need to get my health on track and finally lose the weight that I had lost when I turned 40!!

I tend to be an emotional eater. Shortly after my 40th birthday my mom passed away and my marriage was heading toward divorce. I ate my pain away and gained back all I had lost previously and " then some"!

Today I am on a new mission and look forward to getting healthy again!

My Life verse:
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

My Goals:
I hope to use this site, the friendships, encouragement to help me start to relive a healthy lifestyle.

July 2011
Lose 10% by October 15th. (~17#)
(so far down about 13# since March 2011)
**update 02-28-12** I probably did obtain that goal, but short time later I lost my spark and have managed to gain ~10# back

Be at 130 as of Feb 14, 2012. ****update 02-28-12*** Ummm... Yeah... didn't happen :( But will keep trying!

Be off my high cholesterol med and diabetes (type 2) med by May 2012 ***update 02-28-12 ... still have time for this goal!

Exercise daily no less than 10 minutes **02-28-12 back on track and out to break my old streak

Participate in 2 virtual 5Ks this fall through Spark People
**08-18-11 walked my first virtual 5K in 51.23 a starting point now for more!
**02-12-2012 I did do a few virtual 5K's -- walking

Participate by running a local 5K in Sum

My Program:
Right now I am trying to make better choices in what I eat and do the one thing I never liked doing..... LOG IN EVERYTHING that I eat! When I do, I see that it works!! :)
I am amazed that I am weighing, measuring and logging in everything I eat these days.
My exercise program is mainly walking. Walking and pushing myself to run too. If the weather is nice I like to head outside and otherwise on my treadmill. I also am working with weight for upper body and using my wii for other exercising too.

My favorite quote:

There's a trick to the Graceful Exit.
It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, a relationship is over--
and to let go.
It means leaving what's over.......without denying its value" Ellen Goodman

    Wellness isn’t about deprivation and it’s not about perfection.

    It is about pointing yourself in the direction of growth,
    training yourself to get comfortable with your highest potential,
    and then taking small steps to support that shift.

    It’s about showing up for yourself, day by day,
    and then one day finding that you’ve undergone a transformation.
