Shared Food Tracker
I've been gone awhile. Haven't lost, haven't gained. And I have gotten more fit, taking Qi Gong/tai qi classes twice weekly. They are a workout. And maintaining my walking.
Time to get on with it, again. I hate feeling heavy. I don't like what I see in the mirror, and in videos of myself.
I recognize that I can help my Arthritis pain (which HAS worsened a lot) by losing 25 more lbs.
Fall Seven Times. Stand up Eight.
There is no Elevator to Success. You have to take the Stairs.
. ...Shopping is just unpleasant - looking for cute clothes, and finding the nice ones only in the smaller sizes. It happened to me just yesterday, at Goodwill. They had all these cute cottom blazers (jackets) in great condition, but the size Larges were too tight! Just frustrating and upsetting.
I have had a life-long weight problem, starting with being a chubby baby, and so on... I have Arthritis of the hip/back which can be Very painful. I've been an avid walker for years, and with all the extra weight I've carried, my poor bones/joints show the effect.
I have lost 15 lbs so far.. and regained 5 lbs. Lost 2 of the 5 that I regained. SO I'm 12 down .I have health problems, that affect my energy, so I do my exercising when I have enough energy.
But I am out there walking every day. Thank God my legs are still strong. I am starting to look better.
THIS time, I plan on going All the Way, with the help of Spark and a growing self-confidence!

I am 59 years old. Born in New York City, have lived in San Francisco, California, since I was about 25 yrs old...I love to sing jazz, for fun and for profit, and I do animal rights volunteer work. I am Spiritual, not religious, and my Spirituality is very important to me. I am passionate about Astrology, have studied it for many years.
I am single, and live by myself. I love to read books on Metaphysics, from authors such as Carolyn Myss, and Dan Millman such as "The Life you were Born to Live". Carolyn Myss wrote "Sacred Contracts". Amazing. I also participated in Oprah's online class recently on the book A New Earth.
