I am grateful!

I am 54. I am learning to conquer disorderly eating. I embrace exercise and love to encourage others. My name is Carole (though I am quite attached to my Sparkname of Cannie which combines my first name and my middle name of Ann(ie). I happily answer to either name. I am married, a mother of four, and a grandmother of three beautiful g-babies. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am active - I walk, run, strength train and do other activities.

I am 54. I am learning to conquer disorderly eating. I embrace exercise and love to encourage others. My name is Carole (though I am quite attached to my Sparkname of Cannie which combines my first name and my middle name of Ann(ie). I happily answer to either name. I am married, a mother of four, and a grandmother of three beautiful g-babies. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am active - I walk, run, strength train and do other activities. Exercise has been part of my life for years. Food, not activity, has been my struggle. I am grateful to find support, encouragement, and knowledge through Sparkpeople. I am committed to losing 50 pounds of excess weight to lessen the burden on my body. I lost 30 lbs initially, kept it off for over a year, re-gained 20 and realize that weight doesn't keep itself off - it requires more vigilance than I was willing to maintain. I have fought this battle for so long, mostly on my own - Sparkpeople is a great blessing to me. My initial challenges are to be free of binge eating and disorderly eating in general, and to eat more nutritious foods, overall.

SparkPoints: 30,080

Fitness Minutes: 60,905

My Goals:
To continue to be active so I can stay active.
To offer support and encouragement to other Sparklers.
To continue my journey to better health and improved fitness on my way to a 50 lb weight loss. I fully intend to arrive at my goal weight of 143 lbs, and then focus on the work of maintenance.
Thy will be done.
I am learning to eat like a healthy adult.
One of the reasons I want to lose weight is to lessen the strain on my hard-working joints caused by excess weight.
TO SERVE AS AN INSPIRATION TO OTHERS WHO HAVE STRUGGLED AS I HAVE.
I am going to log enough fitness minutes in one year to help me drop 30 or more lbs of fat. Of course, it doesn't help as much unless I refrain from eating lg amt of useless calories, which undermines my hard work.


My Program:
Tracking nutrition & activity daily on SP

strength training 3x wk

hiking, walking, and/ or running 6 days per week

mixing things up: going up and down in my SP calorie range to keep my body "on it's toes" a little, plus lots of exercise one week, less the next, and making sure I get enough sleep which makes a big difference for me in terms of appetite, self-discipline, and weight

relying on SP for support (and finding it!!) thank you!

Blogging on SP several x per week-thank you for reading!

Personal Information:
I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

My doctor just upped my D3 from 6,000 to 10,000 iu's a day. I buy the Whole Foods D3 because it has the fewest other ingredients. She's hoping it helps with my weird muscle issues. I had no idea that Vitamin. D defiency could effect so many different body systems.

Hello, It was so nice to hear from you. So sorry about your sister. . I hope she is responding to treatment.
I remember the ice storm, had to cancel work appointments for the workers, travel was horrible.
If the good Lord is willing I plan on being here in Salem for some time. So hopefully the occasion will arise again. You never know maybe I'll get up your way.
I have noticed your posts in the friends feed, it's always nice to see your name and know you are carrying on.
Hard to believe Summer in in full swing, and this year is 1/2 over. I have some outdoor craft fairs coming up, busy on production of some new jewelry pieces. The hand, the fingers, even the eyes don't work as well as years ago, everything takes longer to make. But I am still at it.
Hope the days are full of family and interesting things.
Take care, be strong, stay positive.
Hugs Tisha emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I've been AWAL from SP except a daily check-in. It's hard to get everything done that we want (& need) to do! Hope all is well with you & yours. School's out, so you are probably up to your eyebrows in busy, busy boys (& dogs!)

Have a great (& safe) 4th of July celebration!
