This is me, in July 2005, a bridesmaid at my friend Susan's wedding
Quilting is my new hobby
Wish I was here (sigh)
If something is "worth it”, if it is important enough to you, then you put your bad habits behind you. You decide what’s important and everything else has to go.
That is what I've been learning since joining Spark. It's not always easy, but if you choose to deny yourself of those bad habits today, keeping the important things at the front of your mind at all times, then it'll be easier tomorrow, and eventually those bad habits WILL go away. It's worth the battle.
My short-term goal is 10% by June 9, 2007, the date of a friend's wedding. My long term goal is 102 pounds, but I don't even want to think that far ahead right now - it's daunting!
So far, my food consumption (portions), my water intake, and my journalling are all in force. I still don't like exercising, but I know it's as important as the other parts, so I've made a pact w/ my trainer that I will not blow off any more workouts with him, and I've started walking on my lunch breaks 2 to 3 times a week.
My name is Becky, I live in a far-west Chicago suburb. I have an adult daughter and 2 granddaughters; I live with my 2 cats.
My favorite movies are: City by the Sea (Robert DeNiro), Crash, and Return to Me.

Thanks for your kind words! I am a co-leader of the Diet Riot Guirrels and Autism, Aspergers, Sensory, Oh My! We just formed the latter group for support of ourselves and our kids on the spectrum.
Hey come check out our Diet Riot Guirrels...Mamarou just joined! Come see what we are all about!
