Make it happen....at your pace!

Make it happen....at your pace is one of my favorite huddle responses to post. It takes time to lose the weight....it took time to gain it. So make the most of your journey by learning new healthy habits, making time for exercise, and having fun doing it.

I turned 40, in August, and I feel like I am in better shape now than I was 10 years ago. I have had success as well as a few plateaus along the way. This is the longest I have stuck with a plan to lose the weight that I have put ...

I turned 40, in August, and I feel like I am in better shape now than I was 10 years ago. I have had success as well as a few plateaus along the way. This is the longest I have stuck with a plan to lose the weight that I have put on along the years and I am having fun doing it. I ran my first 5k in November 2010,my first 10k in May 2011, and I am planning to run my first half marathon in March 2012. Yay me!!!!!!! And I am going to keep challenging myself after that (who knows maybe even one marathon). SparkPeople totally rocks!!!!!


I have tried to do this by myself in the past. Well I did not succeed because I did not have a fitness plan nor did I have a nutritional plan in place to make it happen. I am here on Spark people to learn how to eat healthy, exercise, and have fun along the way. And once I reach my goal, I will hang around to keep "sparkin".

Thanks, as always Daphne. I wrote a blog a while back about working folks who still find time to exercise. I don't know how the younger people find the time. It's easy for me. I'm retired and have lots of free time on my hands. LOL.
You have a full plate and still find time, I so much admire that.

Hi Daphne, thanks for your comments. You and I are alike, I think. I'm also probably much more reserved in person than I appear here. Funny though, 'cuz I was really a party animal, outgoing guy when I was younger. Must have worn me out, or I just had enough of that lifestyle. :)
Glad you responded!. Always nice to hear from you.

Hi Daphne! THanks for your comment on my Double Road Race blog! I guess we both need something to fill the gap when we're not racing, huh? emoticon I hope you're having a great summer and finding a way to keep Sparking!

Howdy!! I've been missing in action for a while and gaining weight as a result. But I'm making my way back to Sparkpeople and just checking in to let you know! I've missed the support and the community. If I didn't know before, I CERTAINLY know now that I NEED Sparkpeople to succeed in this journey. I'm sorry I haven't been around to support YOU along yours. But I'm back now! To the future!
