Healthy Living

I'm a snow bird and enjoy living in both places. I like reading, painting and knitting and crocheting. I Enjoy following my kids, grandkids and great grandkids in their activities. We follow one of our sons and his bands. He plays bass guitar and sings with his own band and in another band. He also gives the sermon once a month in his church, so on those Sundays we attend his church instead of ours. He gives a really thought provoking and inspiring sermon. I have been with ...
I'm a snow bird and enjoy living in both places. I like reading, painting and knitting and crocheting. I Enjoy following my kids, grandkids and great grandkids in their activities. We follow one of our sons and his bands. He plays bass guitar and sings with his own band and in another band. He also gives the sermon once a month in his church, so on those Sundays we attend his church instead of ours. He gives a really thought provoking and inspiring sermon. I have been with sparkpeople now for over 5 years and have reached my first goal. I lost 50 lbs. I then made a new goal of losing another 20 lbs. It has taken me a long time to get to this point. And I have been on a plateau for some time. At times I have been discouraged, but I know I will never give up. Sparkpeople is just what I needed, with everything they have to offer, nutrition tracking and fitness tracking, and new and supportive friendships on the teams. I will continue to work not just because I would like to look and feel better in my clothes, but I know eating properly and losing weight is the best thing I can do for my many health issues. Our new way of eating is also making a big difference in my husbands health. I am cooking with his health problems in mind as well as my own and by setting an example of eating properly it is encouraging him to do the same. I have made a new commitment and renewed my way of tracking both nutrition and exercise. I have also teamed up with a fellow sparker to challenge us to not procrastinate but to be consistent in exercise and nutrition tracking. It is helping me a great deal and I believe now I will get off this plateau and make some real progress.
