My Quest for Good Health

I have been on a diet for as long as I can remember...It seems that if I lose the weight, eventually it finds me again. This time I want to lose it for good!!!

My Goals:
My top goal is to lose at least 60 lbs and to get back into shape. I plan on taking baby steps to accomplish that only focusing on 5 lbs at a time. That way it doesn't seem so hard to achieve.

My Program:
I am trying to keep track of everything that goes in to my mouth...and I am trying really hard not to put in more than my allowed calories for the day. So far, I am doing OK...I just pray that I can keep it up.

Personal Information:
Hi...My name is Carol and I am a 50 year old Grandma of 3...and 1 on the way. I live in Gretna, NE and I work for the Post Office.

Other Information:
Each day is a new day...Always look forward...Never look back.

Hi Carly, Thanks for adding me to your Spark Friends!! I love your tropical birthday pictures! I think my goal for when I get to my goal weight will be to have a similar party, complete with grass skirt, flowers and tiki torches!!! I've never thrown myself a party and at my age, I think it's about time to have one!! The support here from everyone is great. I just need to start believing in myself and believing that I can do this!! Good luck to you and hope to talk to you again!!


PS I wish sometimes that I had a dog to take for walks.... cats just don't see the need for that I guess!! :-)

I see you have just joined Sparkpeople less than a month ago. Have youdone getting started yet? Go to your start page. In the top middle of the page click on Getting Started. I did and it really helped me. I have been working with the nutrition tracker with great success, learning all the tricks with it. I am just now trying ot get exercise into my routine. One step at a time. Best wishes.
