I'm a Lime, I'm a lime, I'm a LOVELY LIME!!!

I'm currently participating in the BLC as a LOVELY LIME and now

The Limes winter challenge is Frosted Fitness Fun and I'm still determined to find some ways to spark weight loss during the challenge. I especially do not want to gain anything in December.

I'm double teaming against the pounds! Can't forget my wonderful 100 days of Weight Loss with Linda Spangle team. That book and the team have changed my life.

I've been working to live IN each day! It is way too easy for me to allow a day to disappear into busyness without taking any time to savor life.

I've lost weight with TOPS, SparkPeople, my SparkFriends, and the LIMES but I'm not yet where I need to be. I love the support that I get from all my Sparkfriends and teams, but I have to say that to have a 28 member team that is consistently supportive of each member and have the participation, caring and sharing that we have on the LIMES is a rare and beautiful thing.

I enjoy the Sparkpeople 30-day challenges too; I'm now repeating some of my special favorites.

This summer I am also joining the 5% Challenges as a Shooting Star. I'll continue No S and moderate carb eating and stay within my Spark calorie range. I'll also walk at least 2 miles 5 days a week and do some strength training every day.

Basically I'm just not quitting! I'm still trying to live mindfully and to be as healthy as possible.

Member Since: 1/7/2009

My Goals:
Long Term Goal: To be a very healthy, very old woman, surrounded by great-grandchildren and still living independently and enjoying my life. I want to be as healthy as I can be at age "almost seventy". I want to lose weight to a goal my doctor has set for me.

My Program:
Eat Wisely! Live fully in each day! Show Love and Kindness! Trust! Pray!

Personal Information:
I grew up in North Dakota and attended the University of North Dakota for one year. Returned to college when I was 44 and graduated - now that felt good. I live in Ohio now. My husband was stationed here for his last Air Force assignment and we stayed in the area when he retired from the Air Force. I've retired as of January 1, 2011!!. I've met the goal of getting back to quilting finally. Two small projects completed recently. It keeps my hands too busy for food. I also love reading, spending time with friends, and traveling occasionally.

Other Information:
My Mantra - Believe in Miracles. Forgive everyone. Life is not fair, but it is good. My Other Mantra: What doesn't kill you just doesn't kill you! And we all should read this: "If every morning, You can find a reason to say, Yes, it's going to be a beautiful day. And every day, you find a reason to say, Yes, it is a beautiful day. And every night, you find a reason to say, Yes, it was a beautiful day. Then one day, You'll look back and easily say, was a beautiful life."~ ~ Doe Zantamata ~ ~

    Wanda: Gosh, it seems like we are traveling in parallel universes these days. Let us draw strength from our fellow Limeys and know that with the hint of spring comes a hint of renewal. Love Pam emoticon

    Thanks for my goodie! I love soups...all year round. I hope yours turns out awesome...and save/share/post away. I like simple things that go together quick. In order to cook, I first must clean that kitchen! It's on my to do list.
    Have a blessed weekend!

    "Today is going to be a great day. I can handle more than I think I can.
    Things don't get better by worrying about them. It's not good to be down.
    I can be satisfied if I try to do my best."
