Getting healthy and loving it

I am more myself and have so much more energy when I do good things for myself, like eating good food and getting my heart pumping. I know I need to keep tracking, because that is the single most powerful way for me to sustain a healthy lifestyle.

I have learned through trial and error that I need to be intentional about my food choices.

I started Part 2 of my SP journey on April 1, 2012. I reached my original goal weight on April 7, 2013. Now I have 5 pounds to my new goal weight.

My wonderful spouse was hugely important to my success. His plea for me to get myself to a healthy weight so that I would be around for a long time was my wake-up call last April 1.

BEAUTY TIPS

Poem by Audrey Hepburn

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

"Thousand of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared."-The Buddha
