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 believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."

Just stopping by to encourage you to keep doing your best, Sparkfriend! You don't have to be perfect in order to make progress. Be your own hero today and every day, and keep fighting to reach your goals. It isn't easy, but you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."

Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

Hi Carol! I'm with you, just got back from my cruise with a 6 lb gain. Yuck! We will get rid of it, though. Lets stay focused and do this. I'm going to try to cut out dairy because cheese is my big downfall. Wish me luck! So glad to hear from you! I've missed you!

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
-Lorna Jane
