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.

"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

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
-Og Mandino

Just stopping by to wish you a healthy week, Spark friend! If you fall down, get back up and keep pushing forward. I hope you know that you're always worth your best effort...because you really are!
Hugs,
Pixie
