Never Giving Up!

8/4/14 - Ok everybody, here I am with trying to start again! It's been quite the journey so far. Ups and downs and going back and forth with the same numbers since the end of 2012. I joined SP in Sept. 2011 and over the next year, I lost 67#, plateaued forever and put around 20# back on, give and take over the next couple of years. I feel that I need to be more diligent at doing low carb as good as I can and staying in my low carb ranges. If I can do that the majority of each week, I know ...
8/4/14 - Ok everybody, here I am with trying to start again! It's been quite the journey so far. Ups and downs and going back and forth with the same numbers since the end of 2012. I joined SP in Sept. 2011 and over the next year, I lost 67#, plateaued forever and put around 20# back on, give and take over the next couple of years. I feel that I need to be more diligent at doing low carb as good as I can and staying in my low carb ranges. If I can do that the majority of each week, I know that I'll lose. It's tough with exercising but I can at least pedal on my recumbent bike. I love that and I try to stay on it until I still love it! That's how I used to lose the weight. Up the exercise with what I can do. So here's to me! I can do it with all my wonderful, awesome Sparking friends! My goal is 155# from what my dr. told me in 2011. He said to get down to there and go from there. Well, I keep plugging along at it and will get there in 2014. I can feel it now!!

My Program:
I'm making more healthy choices with food, paying more attention to exercise. I try to keep my goal in view every day.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from Seattle, WA and have lived in the Midwest for around 30 years now, married to my best friend. We own and operate our dairy farm. My husband and I have two grown children. Our daughter's married and our son farms with us full-time. We also have our beloved English Springer Spaniel named Hope! We love her undying love for us every day! We raise corn, soybeans, barley, alfalfa and wheat too sometimes. I love the distinct 4 seasons in the MIdwest, but not always the extreme temp. of heat and humidity in the summer and the cold winds along with snow in the winter. But we know that the things we don't care for as much, find us enduring and then that builds character! I love gardening, baking, collecting, shopping, sewing, music, singing, piano, painting, decorating, embroidery. I hope to become more and more healthy that I can enjoy all of these things more.

Other Information:
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.

---~~~ I am Thankful for ~~~---

**The taxes I pay because it means
I am employed.
**The clothes that fit a little too snug
because it means I have enough food to eat.
**My shadow who watches me work,
because it means I am out in the sunshine
**A lawn that needs to be mowed,
windows that have to be washed
and gutters that need fixing because
it means I have a home
**The spot I have found at the end
of a parking lot, because it means
I am capable of walking.
**All the complaining I hear about
our government, because it means
we have freedom of speech.
** The lady in church who sings off-key
because it means that I can hear.
**The huge piles of laundry and ironing
because it means my loved ones are near.
**The alarm that goes off in the early
morning hours because it
means that I am alive.

Thank you for the encouragment emoticon Yes, I typically lose weight in wooshes and stops so I just need to be patient for the next week or so. It's the downward trend that matters in the long run! emoticon

Never look for a good face; emoticon
it will turn old one day. emoticon
Never look for a good skin,
it will wrinkle one day. emoticon
Never look for a hot body,
it will change one day. emoticon
Never look for nice hair,
it will turn white one day. emoticon
Instead, look for a loyal heart
that will love every day. emoticon
