My Goals:
Time to rethink my goal. After a recent phone conversation with a long time friend, I realized I am 7 months away from my 50th birthday, and since starting SP in 11/2011, I have not managed to really get control of my weight. With the big 50 on the horizon, what am I waiting for. So now my new goal is to be 199 by my 50th birthday which is 1/14/2013. After that, well, I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

My Program:
I really need to be more consistent with tracking my food, I plan to choose good healthy foods and limit the junk. Adding in daily exercise and getting a good nights sleep.

“In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."
-Victoria Moran

Hi Barb, thanks for stopping by to let me know that you like the motivational quotes. Sorry to hear that you have not been taking care of yourself the way you should be, though. Pick yourself up and get started now, because you deserve to treat yourself the best you possibly can!

As for tracking, I don't use the Spark tracker. I'm old school...I prefer to just write it down in my journal. But yes, I do track my fruits and veggies.

"I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."
-Unknown

Just stopping by to encourage you to keep doing your best, Sparkfriend! You don't have to be perfect in order to make progress. Be your own hero today and every day, and keep fighting to reach your goals. It isn't easy, but you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."
-Jillian Michaels

“Make a pledge to yourself right now, to declare that you are worth your time and energy."

Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
