Obesity is not benign!

I got the doctor's orders to lose weight on my 62nd birthday (May 25,2008). Since then, I have lost 122 lbs. But the hardest part is right ahead of me. I have lost and gained those pounds over and over. But my attitude is still positive and I am loving the exercises and I really want this time to FINALLY succeed. Recently I have hired a personal trainer and she pushes me to do more and I love it. I went to the Spark Convention in Cincinatti and it really gave me a big boost.

My Goals:
to build a lifelong habit of healthy living.
My ultimate goal is to be happy with the person I am and it includes in part my appearance, my attitude and my personality.

My Program:
I started this journey on my birthday ( may 25)
I am not doing anything so weird or extreme. I exercise 30 minutes or more every day. That can be swimming, walking, or exercising at the gym. When I had enough strength to do more, I added a personal trainer to advise me.

Personal Information:
My name is Mary Gardiner and i live in the outer suburbs of Virginia in Fairfax.
I am an accountant and I probably will work til I reach 70 in 7 years.
I am a decent bridge player and swimmer.
I read everything I get my hands on and even listen to books on tape when doing the daily commute.

Other Information:
I love Sparkpeople! It is so great to have companions together on the journey.
