My Goals:
Goal 1: For 1 day (today) I will log 10,000 steps on my pedometer.

Goal 2: I will repeat Goal 1 for 7 full days in a row. Wow! Did I just say that?

Goal 3: I will lose 5 pounds.

Goal 4: I will repeat Goals 1-2 until they become a habit, a normal part of my life.

Goal 5: Leave the 300's forever.

Goal 6: Get back to the weight I was when I married. (258)

Goal 7: Leave the 200's forever.

Goal 8: I will make running a part of my life again, when I am physically able to do so.

Goal 9: I will return to my beloved FIT Class.

Goal 10: I will reach my goal weight.

My Program:
I am using Spark People to help me make healthy food choices and to motivate me to literally work my butt off. Since I have such a large amount of weight to lose, I'm setting my ticker to show a goal of losing 10% of my body weight. Then I'll do another 10% and another until I whittle away the whole amount.

Personal Information:
I am a forty-something year old wife and mother living in west central Illinois, along the banks of the Mississippi River. I want to live every day of my life to the fullest. I love God, I love my family and friends, and I love my life.

Other Information:
I read voraciously, garden enthusiastically, knit amateurishly, cook passionately, laugh wholeheartedly, and try to live my life everyday in a way that will bring glory to God who made me and loves me. P.S. He loves you too!

Thanks again for your support! You asked where I Belize. We have a little vacation home and come here when it's cold at home in Virginia. It is beautiful here. I get to eat fresh fruits all winter and LOVE it. Of course, I also eat out a lot and that's not so good for the old waistline. Hence, my push to get control!!!

Hope you are feeling well now and back in the groove. Have a wonderful weekend.

I am looking so forward to spring and garden season!!!
