Been Gone A While.......................

I've been gone for months now but I wanted to get back on Spark and see who is still here and who is not. I'm still trying to reach my goal - although I'm closer than I was before. Still have about 18 lbs to go.

I don't even want to make the statement that I'll Spark every day because I just don't know if I will. I always have great intentions but things always seem to get in my way - especially my work schedule. I do know that I keep coming back and that's a good thing!

My Goals:
Lose 25 lbs. and get back to my healthy eating habits!

My Program:
Stay in my calorie range; keep an eye on my nutrition every day; get in some exercise most days and not fret because my back problems keep me from being to able to exercise like I used to!

Personal Information:
I live in sunny Arizona with my DH and am the mom of three adult children and two stunningly handsome and intelligent little grandsons - oops! that sounds like bragging but other Granny's understand -LOL If I don't look in the mirror, I forget I'm not 25 any more but then age is largely a state of mind and I think I'm losing mine! I am a Christian and have a strong faith in the LORD. I've been told I'm a great cook but don't ask me for a recipe because I was taught with the pinch of this - dash of that - method. I even find myself modifying my Spark recipes, somewhat.

Other Information:
I love mysteries - books, Telly, and movies. BBC is my absolute favorite when it comes to detective shows and I adore British comedy. Some of my favorites are The IT Crowd, Father Ted, Keeping Up Appearances - Murdoch Mysteries (which is really Canadian), Taggert, Blue Murder, Jonathan Creek, etc. I also re-watch the original Dark Shadows whenever I get in the mood for something ridiculous and campy.

emoticon I kept looking for my fellow Sparking "short" friend and wondered where you were. Got a Sheltie last October. First house dog in years. She is a really sweet dog. Hope to converse with you more.

emoticon Hey pretty lady! I'm so glad to hear that you are doing good! Also happy that Polly and Peanut are doing great too! I'm not sure, but I think it was Peanut that had attached herself to you, right? They are both so sweet looking! So, I guess you like your job. Do you like being back in the workforce? Are you working full time or part time?

I was much closer to my goal weight last year, but for some reason as soon as the holidays roll around and I am cooking and baking more (I always make cookies, pies, and other assorted yummies as gifts for my family and the neighbors) I end up eating more and put back some of the weight that I lost last year, so I am back where I was this time last year. But I am working out religiously and am eating healthy, just too much. I have been having some digestive issues, but am not blaming that on my weight gain. I know I'll get back to where I was, but my goal is to NOT gain it back during the end of the year!

It was really nice to hear from you Carol. I know how busy you must be. Take care of yourself and stop by again when you get a chance and let me know how things are doing!

Thank you so much for the advice and encouragement! Your approach to incorporating weight loss and fitness into every day life makes a lot of sense. emoticon
