If it is to be, it is up to me.

I am a wife, mother, grandmother, and retired teacher. At a hair over 5 feet tall, I am overweight. I have participated in Spark People for 7 years, but my weight loss has been negligible. I won't give up though. At almost 64, it's important to realize that you simply can't eat everything you want to. I am very lucky to have a husband who is the cook, and he pushes me to exercise (I'd rather read a book). However, one of my great loves is Tai Chi, in which I've earned a black belt after 10 ...

My Goals:
1. To think positively about my ability to lose weight.
2. To think positively about my ability to exercise consistently.
3. To make healthy eating a lifestyle change.
4. To make daily exercise a priority.
5. To strive for balance between body and mind.
6. To be happy.
7. To help others.

My Program:
I will not lose weight quickly like I did in my 30s so I need to continue to motivate myself. Some positive things I do include always eating breakfast, reading labels for calorie and fat content, using whole foods as opposed to prepared or packaged ones in my meals, and staying hydrated. A fun reward for me is a glass of wine in the evening. I am mindful of my carb cravings and my emotional eating in the evenings.

Personal Information:
I am from Harrisburg, PA. My husband and I are both retired teachers - lucky to be healthy. I have two married children and three beautiful granddaughters.

Other Information:
Since retiring, I have time to do many things and feel less stressed. I like to garden, read, and do tai chi. I have more trouble doing vigorous exercise. I feel like I should have lost weight since I'm including more exercise in my day but I haven't broken the habit of eating too much. My worst habit is giving in to eating snacks after dinner.
