Wanting to change not just for today, but for my life

Update on March 29, 2015
Starting a new challenge with the cloverleaf team on the Spring 5% challenge.

Update on December 28, 2014
I am back after over a year away. I cleaned up my friends by going to their pages and deleting any that haven't been around for over a year. I am recognizing once again how important it is for me to loose weight in order to be healthy. I may not be here every day, but will try. Glad to have Spark People in my life again. The support ...

I am back after over a year away. I cleaned up my friends by going to their pages and deleting any that haven't been around for over a year. I am recognizing once again how important it is for me to loose weight in order to be healthy. I may not be here every day, but will try. Glad to have Spark People in my life again. The support was greatly missed, and I do recognize my need to be a supporter to.

Update on July 14, 2013
On my way to my 6th 5% challenge, which is 5% of my weight at the start of the challenge which is July 27th. It lasts 8 weeks, and I am going to be a Beautiful Butterfly again. I may change my picture, to a different butterfly, or stay the same. My grandkids are my motivation, but also my disabled, crippled sister who I just visited, whose body is wracked with arthritis, (she is 60 - 2 years older than me), who is working hard to just be able to WALK AGAIN WITH THE AIDE OF A WALKER. If she can work through the pain, so can I.
I am eating with the Curves Complete, and doing Curves exercise at least 4 days per week. My need is to find other exercise to do on the days that I do not go to Curves. I will work on that and update it here.
Have you got your gym clothes, runners, water bottle, etc. ready to go?

I have gotten rid of foods that are not healthy for me, and I have my husband and Curves Coach to be accountable. My issues in the last challenge had to do with stress and my reactions to it. I will write up a blog about how I plan to handle stress this time around. I was supposed to loose 11.5 and actually gained half a pound from my start, but am now down 3 lbs from the start. So I have made some progress. THIS IS THE CHALLENGE, I WILL GET BELOW 200 LBS.
Update on May 2, 2013
I am going to do my 5th 5% challenge. This will be the 2013 Spring challenge. I will be a beautiful butterfly once again. In the winter challenge I was successful in loosing my 5% plus half a pound. I lost 11.5 lbs. Since I have gained 3. I will update this on Saturday May 11, the first day of the challenge with my beginning weight, the weight I need to loose. My plan is still the same, continue to work out at Curves four times per week, walk, use the Curves complete eating program, and meet with my Curves Coach one time a week. I will get weighed in there on Weds, but for the challenge I will weigh myself on Sats. I will be getting my inch measurements done each month.

I am going to add some pictures here. I had a wonderful 58th birthday with my family, and they have all been very supportive of me. I Can and WILL do this.

Update FEBRUARY 9, 2013
Taking on a new challenge in the form of 5% Winter challenge team. Goal to loose 5% of my weight. Current weight is 220. 5% is 11 lbs. I know that I can do this. I lost 8 lbs in the summer challenge. I have gained 6 lbs since the last challenge in the fall. This time I have plans. I am going to trust God to help me with this.

~~~~~~~~ I AM GOING TO DO THIS ~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~ CHEER ME ON ~~~~~~~~~~

Updating as of June 11, 2012
I haven't lost weight since January. I have decided to make some changes to change that. I joined the 10 minutes of exercise a day challenge last week. So far so good.
I joined Curves in April, and they are having a Last Queen Standing contest for the summer for those girls who come three times a week for 8 weeks. I signed up for that as well. This means that when I travel next week I will need to visit the Curves in the city I am in. (Which I did, Yeah)
And I signed up to join the 5% weight loss challenge team, which is 8 weeks, and I am working on how I am going to loose at least 11 lbs in the 8 weeks of the challenge. I know that I can do it. And I know that I will.
end of update.
I live in Texas, transplanted from New England. I hate the heat, and find it difficult to exercise. I had knee replacement in 2007 and because of that also find exercise difficult. I would like to loose weight, get more energy, to keep up with my grandson, 17 months, Stryker. I have three grown children, and a marvelous husband who is very supportive.
I am working on my long term goals: to climb a mountain with my husband, to go rappelling, to walk in a 5K for some charity, to visit Israel, these are things I want to do when I have gotten healthier, that will motivate me to continue on this journey.
