Going to do it this time!

I am turning 55 this year and I really need to lose the weight once and for all! My husband and I have been married for 32 year, have 2 wonderful adult children who are both married and our daughter has blessed us with 2 beautiful granddaughters. I want to be able to enjoy my granddaughters and hopefully someday be able to enjoy retirement!!!! I have always exercised and love being outdoors, but obviously over eating and portion control is my problem - how else could I maintain my weight??? ...

And now with being on the brink of menopause that brings a bunch of other issues. I really need to lose this weight now.

My Goals:
I want to be fit and healthy as I enter this stage of my life so eventually (someday) we can enjoy a fun retirement not plagued with illness.

My Program:
PORTION CONTROL!!!!

I know all the "rules" of diet and exercise. My diet is also restricted by allergies. So portion control and my love of chocolate are my vices.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in South Dakota but have called Colorado home for 39 years. My husband and I have 2 grown, married children and 2 beautiful granddaughters. We love spending time with our family. We also enjoy ATVs and geocaching.

I'm taking a Spark break for a while, but I'll be back soon. Work is a little overwhelming, with the travel, etc. Keep doing great and I'll be in touch again when I can.

"One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"

TGIF, Sparkfriend! I hope your week was a good one and that you're ready for a fit, fun and fantastically healthy weekend! Keep your goals in mind and keep taking steps towards them. Remind yourself that you are capable...and love yourself enough to know that you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

Have a great time with the kids and grandkids. That is my dream, to be able to vacation with all of them together. One day I hope....touch base when you get back. Hiking will burn up a LOT of calories! emoticon emoticon
