Busy Granny of 5

I've now been a member of Sparkpeople for 28 months and continue to be inspired by all the wonderful people, information and activities on this wonderful site! My journey to be the healthiest me I can be, continues... I've now lost over 110 pounds and am within ten pounds of my goal weight. (Which will put me at the high end of normal on the BMI scale!) Of course, I've battled with this last ten pounds, but... I will NOT give up... I feel so much better physically, mentally, and emotionally ...

SparkPoints: 233,950

Fitness Minutes: 113,844

My Goals:
This goal too, has evolved over the past twenty-eight months, as my 51st birthday has come and gone and I did NOT meet my ultimate goal of being normal on the BMI scale; however I will NOT give up.. as this is NOT a race to a finish line, but an ongoing RACE to be the best I can be!!!! I will get where I need/want to be as long as I stay in the race!
Refuse to give up!!!


My Program:
In order for me to meet my BIG goals, I have established some smaller, bite sized goals .
1. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day,
2. Track everything I eat and drink EACH and every day.
3. Do at least 30 minutes of cardio five days a week. (Preferrably 60 minutes)
4. Do upper body, lower body and core building exercises on a rotating basis five days a week.
5. Remember a set back doesn't mean failure, it's just another opportunity to start fresh.

Personal Information:
I'm 51 years old and have been married to the same man since I was 18, which means we'll be celebrating our 33rd anniversary this year. We have three grown children and five grandchildren, ranging in ages from six to fifteen months. To say that they are my everything would be an understatement... I have many loves in my life but these five angels definitely top the list.

Other Information:
I've had the privilege of being a teacher for the past twenty-five years and continue to LOVE teaching today, almost as much as I did when I first started so many years ago.

Thank you for all your prayers this past several days while I was away during my surgery and recovery time. I appreciate your friendship and kindness expressed and your faithful support!

God Bless you my Friend...Hope you enjoy the following poem!

The Gift Of Friendship

Friendship is a priceless gift
That cannot be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold -
For gold is cold and lifeless,
It can neither see nor hear,
And in the time of trouble
It is powerless to cheer
It has no ears to listen,
No heart to understand,
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand -
So when you ask God for a Gift,
Be thankful if He sends
Nor diamonds, pearls or riches,
But the love of real true friends.

Helen Steiner Rice
