Hi there! I am not new to SparkPeople, but has been "MIA" for the past two years. I first joined SparkPeople when I turned 50, but I had difficulty staying focused. I am now turning 54 in a couple of weeks, and I still am fighting the same old "weight demons". In fact, in the past two years since I have been off the website, I gained yet another 10 lbs! I joined a new gym about 2 months ago and totally love it! They really push you to eat right, hold you accountable for attending exercise classes regularly, and offer all kinds of weight loss programs, if you are interested. I have lost 7 lbs in the past month, but decided it is time to get back to tracking my food, if I am going to lose the other 13 lbs I want/need to lose! So naturally, I drifted back to SparkPeople, where I found soooo much support in the past. So here I go, with a much stronger fire lit under me this time, thanks to my new gym and their awesome coaches and of course, this website! I am totally committed to making the rest of my life, truly the best of my life!
To lose 20 lbs,and to do this weight loss thing for the last time!!
Put only healthy food into my body!
Exercise 60 min/day, 5-6 days/week.
I will persist until I succeed!
I have a 19 year old son who recently joined the Navy in June 2013. Hearing his stories of the extreme challenges of Navy Boot Camp motivated me to work out hard each day that he was being worked hard in Boot Camp. After 8 weeks, my son graduated Boot Camp and his mom has finally found the motivation to continue what she started!
Dont'dig your grave with your own knife and fork.
One pound at a time.
Get comfortable with uncomfortable.
A one hour workout is 4% of your day! No excuses!
Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine.
Don't be fooled by the calendar. THere are only as many days in the year as you make use of.
