It took me a couple weeks to learn to navigate all the different areas of the SparkPeople website, but I am SO GLAD I HUNG IN THERE; it offers so much hope and support! The more I post comments here and there, the more I get to know people who are also working hard to make personal changes, or maintain the changes that they have achieved. Their stories inspire me. YOUR COURAGE INSPIRES ME! Write, share, and be patient and kind to yourself. We can do this together!

No matter how much time I spend trying to rewrite the past, my story is the same. The only day that I can make better is today. What I do today builds a foundation for tomorrow. It may take me some time, but I want an unbreakable foundation.

Tracking my calories helps me understand the relationship between intake and out put, calories burned and activity level. It challenges me to do a little better each day.

I also need to look at behaviors. I am a believer in recovery and there are 12 simple steps to get most everyone where they need to go. I need to walk the way I talk every day. I can't forget who I am or where I've been, or what it took to get me where I am today.

I can only live in today. And by the grace of God, I need to do something today to not just benefit myself, but to pay it forward.

Fitness Minutes: 652

My Goals:
Be healthier today than yesterday. Be healthier tomorrow than today.

I USED TO GIVE UP BEFORE THE MIRACLE HAPPENED! NO MORE!

MIRACLES ARE COOPERATIVE VENTURES BETWEEN ME AND GOD. HE LIKES TO SEE THAT I'M DOING A LITTLE SOMETHING ON MY END OF IT, AND THEN HE SUPPORTS AND REWARDS IT WITH MIRACULOUS SUCCESS IN AREAS BEYOND MY WILDEST DREAMS!


My Program:
Tracking is essential. When I don't track, I lie to myself. Small frequent meals/snacks are best for me. It keeps me from indiscriminate "chowing down."



Personal Information:
I'm a Christian mom and grandmother, who is retired from a long career as an addictions counselor and program manager providing chemical dependency treatment for adults and families in Northwestern Ohio.


Other Information:
I love reading, writing, arts & crafts, and nature! I am definitely a family person and love spending time doing family things!
