Reading some blogs and other articles recently - my head is not sure how or what to do next in terms of "setting goals"...

But maybe...

Getting more focused on doing (or re-doing) those activities back into my life??

My Goals:
I've never really been at a "normal" weight for my age. It's difficult to "picture" what I would actually look like when I reach goal. More importantly is how will I feel about myself when I reach goal? Will it frighten me? I know I will feel better. There was a brief time in high school where I lost 30 pounds and was pretty close to goal weight but still 15-20 pounds over what the "chart guessers" thought. Yet I remember how energetic I felt, how awesome it felt to try on smaller pants, guessing at size, only to discover that they also were TOO BIG, and going down to a smaller size. Really cool. So I want that feeling again.

I've see various relatives struggling in their 70's and 80's because they made poor choices in their diet, didn't exercise, and they are having an awful time. Yet, I do see some friends in their 80's and 90's who are really ROCKIN', in great health, energetic, and I want to be that way when I'm in my 80's or 90

My Program:
Well, so far, the program is to just get this set up and figure out what is what, decide what to do, get some sleep, GET OFF THE INTERNET (including the wonderfully fun websites like this one!), and get some SLEEP!

EAT VEGGIES! I love them, but why won't I stop and prepare them for myself?



Do 15 minutes of DeCluttering 4-6 days a week (FlyLady!)

Okay, I'm not done with this list now. But I'm giving myself permission to stop here and revisit it later. It shouldn't go away anytime soon, as long as SparkGuy has enough squirrels running on the electric generators to keep powering the computers holding all of the SparkPeople pages!!

Then I can update this later with more profound coherent goals.

Personal Information:
I'm north of Wichita, KS not far - if that's where you are, drop me a note! Maybe we can walk??

That was what I liked about this guy, we weren't rushing - I didn't think so anyway. We'd started talking in March and up until Sunday night he hadn't even kissed me (other than my hand and my forehead). But lately he's been on this silent treatment thing that I don't understand and it's really hurting my feelings and making me feel insignificant. The guy before him just wanted a booty call - and now this guy - who used to talk to me nonstop - he has not said ONE WORD to me in over 34 hours. I don't get it.

I do have a tendency to overreact and that's why I'm asking for suggestions and tips and advice - I know that about myself - I make mountains out of molehills and take things completely the wrong way.

I don't know what to think about this, though, other than he is trying to let me down w/o saying it which hurts even worse - but I'm not chasing him (call it pride, call it standing up for myself, I don't know, but I'm not doing it).

My first goal was 10 minutes a day. It was a small thing but it evolved into a whole new lifestyle. Just jump in and get your feet wet. This is a great social site.
