Fall 5% Challenge: Lose 5% of current weight, which means my goal this challenge is to lose
One pound a week - slow but sure. Keep on keepin' on ... 60 minutes a day of exercise, clean and healthy eating. I MUST learn to not binge eat when I'm tired or stressed. "If it isn't hunger, then FOOD won't fix it."
Retired. Love gardening, cooking and music. Getting out for my four-mile daily walks is a joy in the sunshine. Not so much joy in cold weather! Three grandkids nearby, so they are here often. Those are times I find it hard to stay on track.
This is my 5th challenge and I found the first three to be SO helpful in my weight loss journey that I'm now hooked. Thank you Spark People!
"There is INSIDE of you ALL of the potential To be WHATEVER you WANT to be; ALL of the ENERGY To do WHATEVER you WANT to do. IMAGINE yourself as you would like to BE, Doing what you WANT to do, & each day, take ONE step Towards your DREAM. Though at times it may seem too difficult to continue, HOLD on to your DREAM. & one morning you WILL awake to FIND That you ARE the person you DREAMED of, DOING what you WANTED to do, Simply because YOU had the COURAGE To BELIEVE in YOUR potential & to hold on to your DREAM." - - Donna Levine - -
Believe in YOURSELF & know that you already have inside of you ALL that you need to become anything & everything you hope to be, want to be & dream of being!! You are stronger than ANY obstacle; You are capable of overcoming ANY hardship; & You are POWERFUL beyond measure!! Acknowledge YOUR potential & OWN it - - YOU are FABULOUS!!!

Always remember that a step in the RIGHT direction, no matter HOW small, is STILL a step in the RIGHT direction! Don't be discouraged by SLOW progress for progress is progress no matter it's speed! As long as you focus each day on getting better & on moving forward, you will continually be moving in the direction of CHANGE, in the direction of HOPE & in the direction of SUCCESS! Each day brings reason to CELEBRATE!!! Choose to LIVE in the MOMENT!!! Choose to APPRECIATE each & every step that brings you closer to the BIG goal! YOU are STRONG, you are CAPABLE & you are DOING this & THAT is ALL that matters!!!
