Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

“Nothing worthwhile comes easily. Work, continuous work and hard work, is the only way to accomplish results that last.” ~Hamilton Holt

I know we can do this, we just have to make ourselves our priority!!
I've been having a hard time lately, staying on track. Don't know why this happens, but it's so frustrating! Decided last night that I've had enough. I can't get healthy and fit if I continue to skip my exercising and keep eating crap!! NO MORE! Today is the day that I start doing good things for my body!!!!!

Hi Gail, how's everything going with you? I've been busy around the house and we've had a lot going on with my MIL, so I haven't been able to spend a lot of time on SP. Wanted to stop by and let you know that I'm thinking about you and wishing the best for you.
I've been doing good with my eating, and using my exercise DVD's to keep myself moving. We're supposed to have warmer temperatures this weekend, so I'm hoping to get outside for a few walks and maybe even ride my bike. emoticon

Hope you're having a great week!! emoticon
