Hi thanks for stopping by .....
Sparkpeople changed my life. I had been bedridden for 12 years due to illness, in turn which lead to an increase of weight by 60 lbs. I needed to get back on my feet and healthy..... googled weight loss program and here my journey began.
I lost 50 lbs. in the first 3 years looking good and feeling great ..... then I accidentally injured my knee, not able to exercise as much awaiting for knee surgery which took 2 years. Gained back 20 lbs. (ouch) following the surgery, family illness and related stress :( Time to get back to what I want and need ....... Watch out 2017 I'm back !!! :o) P.S. Family's doing great Yayyyy!!
Healthy Wife, Mother, Grandmother.....
I owe it to "myself" and my family.
My Mom & Dad, Sister, MIL and FIL passed away at a young age.
I need to do my best to break that cycle ... Adult children need their Mom & Dad ....Grandchildren need their Grandparents! xoxo
Spark Activity Tracker
Fitbit Charge HR :0)
1. Weigh, track and log everything I eat and drink. Enter all Nutritional Info. for every grocery purchased. It makes it so much easier for tracking.
2. Eliminate processed foods.
3. Ensure that all necessary Nutrients are met (i.e. fibre, calcium, sodium, etc.)
4. Drink 8-10 cups of water daily
5. Daily Intentional Exercises, unless I'm ill (i.e. Aerobics, dancing, weights, kettle bell, and stepping etc.) I get bored easily so I need to change it up in 10 minute intervals.
ENJOY THE JOURNEY!! :o)
