Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Hi! My name is June, I'm 57 years young. I have been overweight all my life. I started a weight loss program when I weighed 295. I went down to 271 and kept yo yoing, I needed to find a program that would help me loose weight and keep it off by learning to eat healthy. I found Sparks a life saver. I look in the mirro and only see a fat ugly person. I'm tired of being fat. I want people to stop looking at me and staring. I want people when they say you are beautifull to leave it at that, not add but you are too fat. I've heard this comment several times. I want to feel beautifull and look beautifull without all of this extra weight.. I want to be around to see all my grandchildren grow up, graduate, get married, and hopefully make me a great grandmother. I know with the help from the good Lord, and the great people here at Sparks, I will be able to obtain my goals, to becoming a more healthy, beautifull woman.
My goal is to be down to 230 by Christmas. My goal is to lower my blood presure and hopfully get off of all my meds. My goals are to eat healthy for the rest of my life, and to try to do some exercise each day, to try to stay in touch with the message boards, and to track my foods. Also I want to try to each day write in my journal to help me stay motivated.
I have changed the way I eat by cutting out regular pastas and breads and eating the multigrain and whole wheat brands. I'm eating more veggies and fruits. I am drinking 8 plus glasses of water a day . I must do 10 minutes at a time of exercise because I was over doing , and with my avascular necrosis of the hip it was causing terrific pain The doctor said no weight bearing exercise on my left side I must lie in bed to do my exercises. I am trying to keep a nutrition tracker and a journal. Trying to read all my emails and adding to message boards. I am asking the good Lord for help in this battle for health and fitness. I'm taking one day at a time. It did not take me a short period of time to put all this weight on, and it will not take a short time to take it off. I know if I mess up for one day I am learning how not to give up and just to continue on.
I am originally from Penna. ,I moved to Delaware in 1985. I then moved to Puerto Rico in 1987 and helped my husband build our home in Puerto Rico. I then moved back to the states in 1990, to Fort Myers , Florida. We kept our home in Puerto Rico for vacations only. I sold my home in Florida in 2000 and purchased 13 acres in the beautifull countyside of Clayton Delaware, where we plan to have a home built as soon as we sell our home in Puerto Rico. I moved back to Puerto Rico in 2001 to settle some problems we had with our home here. We remodeled everything and it is now on the market for sale. ( I do hope it sells quick), my heart is aching to go back home. I will be married for 39 years on August 21 2007. I am a mother of 5 children , 3 living and 2 that have passed away. I have 2 step children and 14 granchildren. I have traveled to every state in the US, except for R.I, Hawaii ,and Alaska. I've traveled to Spain, Germany, Switzerland, and Amsterdam. I love to travel.
I love doing crafts, I especially love making dolls using seashells. I collect books, and have quite an extensive library. I collect dolls, whiskey glasses, and recipes. I like to read fiction, non fiction, mysteries, and some science fiction. I loved reading the Left Behind series, and unfortunately all good things must come to an end. The series is finished. I love dogs and want to get another one when we are finished with having our home built in Delaware. I am a strong believer in God and his son Jesus Christ, and am a member of the Mormon church. I'm working on getting some pics in my photo gallery of this beautifull island that at present we call home.
