My Journey to Wellness

Today is October 20, 2012. I have been a member of this community for many years with limited success. This is not the fault of SparkPeople; it is my own. I turned 41 earlier this month and once again I rededicated myself to getting to a healthier weight. The photos on this page may be a little dated but I am roughly the same weight. Anyway, I have made some fundamental changes to how I am approaching weight loss and hope that this time it works. Wait. Hope is not a plan. I plan to ...
Today is October 20, 2012. I have been a member of this community for many years with limited success. This is not the fault of SparkPeople; it is my own. I turned 41 earlier this month and once again I rededicated myself to getting to a healthier weight. The photos on this page may be a little dated but I am roughly the same weight. Anyway, I have made some fundamental changes to how I am approaching weight loss and hope that this time it works. Wait. Hope is not a plan. I plan to succeed this time. If I find I am not successful then it will be an obvious sign that I need to tweak something and that's okay. It is, after all, about the journey.

SparkPoints: 17,000

Fitness Minutes: 23,125

My Goals:
Outcome Based Goal
I will get to 190 by the end of 2013.

Behavior Based Goals
I will drink at least 64 oz. of water every day.
Why? Because I know myself and if I drink a lot of water I tend to take better care of myself.

I will be quantifiably more active during the day.
Why activity? Well, to burn calories, of course. Currently I'm struggling with finding the time.

I will eat healthy foods for fuel most of the time. If I eat something purely for pleasure I will not beat myself up; I will enjoy the meal and get back on track with the next thing I put in my mouth.

My Program:
I am counting calories, with an emphasis on higher protein, complex carbohydrates, and vegetables.

Personal Information:
I love to read, watch football, make cocktails and excellent food. I have two cats, three kids (one grown) and am happily single. Who needs a man? (Not me.)

Other Information:
“Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”

Congrats on your consistency award! I've never gotten one of those, but that would be a BIG accomplishment, as consistency has never been a strength of mine. I just noticed that we have the same "level" from the points earned on spark people, and read that you have been doing this on and off for awhile, just like I have. Great job amplifying your efforts! Keep it up, I look forward to sharing my news of a consistency award with you soon!
