It's now June 5 (already), I haven't lost anymore weight. I just don't try hard enough. It's silly not using the willpower to just spend a few weeks (okay a few months) addressing my diet and fitness. Though, I am brilliantly keeping track of it all and certainly know where my downfalls are! So, that's important. Well, we'll see how June goes.

Well, I am not really losing any weight, so, I have to revisit my diet ideas (what diet ideas)
But my exercise, fitness and lifestyle changes are working out. So it`s a start.

April 24, 2011:
I am 47. gulp! I don't feel 47 and I am always surprised when I look in the mirror. Who is that fat broad?

In my head I am maybe 32? I would like my body to match my mind.

I spent the last couple years very uncomfortably with plantar fasciitis(SP) and sciatica issues. It kept me from walking and excercising.

Finally, my legs are pretty much normal and I have started walking again. Yesterday I walked over 5 miles. Yes, me feet were sore and I had to have a nap in the afternoon. But, it was awesome!

Member Since: 11/18/2009

SparkPoints: 16,868

Fitness Minutes: 2,799

My Goals:
I have to lose at least 40 pounds. I started here needing to lose 60+, so, I am getting somewhere.

I want to be fit to ride my horse. The more muscle and less fat I have, the better rider I will be.

And sometimes I just want to look hot (at least a bit, I don't feel hot right now)

My Program:
Low carb and wheat free all the way, baby!

Spend as much time outdoors as possible. I have a couple acres of garden to take care of, dogs to walk, a horse to ride, lots of calorie burning things to do!

Personal Information:
I live in BC Canada with my fabulous husband of 17 years, 3 dogs, 1 cat and 2 horses on a small acreage that I just love.

I have become fit enough and painfree enough to enjoy hiking again and just working around the property again.

Other Information:
Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

If you don't take care of your body, where are you going to live?
--George Carlin

I'd rather be sitting on my horse thinking about God, than sitting in church thinking about my horse.

The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.

"In order to get what you've never had,
Do what you've never done."

MOTIVATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS. THIS HELPS ME WHEN I NEED THAT LITTLE PUSH TO KEEP GOING.

M- MAKE SHORT TERM GOALS
O- OUT WITH THE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
T- THINK OF WHY YOU WANT THIS
I- IMAGINE HOW YOU WILL FEEL
V- VISUALIZE HOW YOU WILL LOOK
A- ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR SUCCESSES
T- TREAT YOURSELF WITH RESPECT
I- INVESTIGATE NEW WAYS TO GET FIT
O- OBSERVE YOUR HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
N- NEVER GIVE UP

No problems Gail about the goodie. Anyway the team could spare a few goodies here and there just for the fun of it. Might just think of a way for us to do this

I live on Douglas Island, SE AK- just a bit to your north. We have brown and black bears, wolves, the odd moose, deer, coyotes and bobcats. One cougar was killed in Wrangell I think it was, several years ago- it must've ranged in from Canada.

Nice area, it's been a while but I've been in your neck of the woods a time or 2.
