Patience grasshopper

My name is Allison. I live in Mooresville, NC but am a native Hoosier. Some call me a Yankee in the south, others don't. My job brought me here over 9 years ago. In that time, I've developed great, thin, attractive friends here...then there's me. I'm, oh shall we say, "pleasantly plump". I have a wonderful (and thin) partner in crime, Charlie, who loves me as I am...but I want to be better...healthier. Enough!

Spark People, for me, is like Weight Watchers without the meetings. Log your food and activity, weigh weekly. Repeat. Anything is successful if you stick to it. Patience, grasshopper!

I know the science. I know the techniques. But, man, I like food. I like healthy food, but lots of it. And wine, boy, do I like wine! I'm healthy-low blood pressure, don't get winded, proportional shape...but that shape is "fluffier" than I like and it is time to make a change.

I joined SP because I must stop making excuses! I have friends who have been successful with this and so now I am joining! Constant vigilance, as they say in the Harry Potter books!

My Goals:
Goals: get back to my size and fitness level pre-thyroid. This means being active, eating well, and being vigilent-taking control of my physical state. It isn't rocket science.

My Program:
Log what I eat daily. Measure food (portion control is big for me). Work fitness into my daily routine, often in the evening in front of the TV. I'm only drinking wine socially and on rare occasions.

Allison Shelton Brady, Mooresville, NC

Other Information:
Yoda says "do or do not, there is no try". I think that applies to my physical state perfectly! I also enjoy Ghandi's "be the change you wish to see in the world"

How are things? I've been away from spark for a while and so have a lot of my spark buddies! :(

Hope you are doing well! Drop me a line if you get a chance... I've been back on for a few weeks trying to lose a stubborn 10 lbs (and more). Wish me luck!

What a fantastic accomplishment. 13,754 people joined Sparks when you did and I bet 5% of them are still here working at good health like you! emoticon

Hi Allison... I saw a post you made on one of the message boards and saw that your weight loss goals were similar to mine. I was wondering if you wanted to be "spark buddies" and encourage one another with our goals. (I can use all the encouragement I can get!)

It is amazing to see that tracker of yours going for that goal. In one year you have done what about 95% of the others who joined with you did not. YOU stayed with this! Most of them gave up, but wish they had done what you have accomplished.

Start this Second year anew. emoticon And know we are all here to support you! emoticon Set new goals and make this second year even better! emoticon
