My three beautiful girls.

Last year I got down to my goal weight and then put all the weight back on again. Easy come, easy go. Or should I say Easy go, even easier come back on.
My goal this year is to take it off and keep it off.
In March 2012 I went to three self hypnosis classes to control my eating. It is June 5th and I have lost 12 pounds. The surprising thing is that it has been easy to control my uncontrollable need to eat. I was eating even when I was so full it hurt. Now, although, I still enjoy food, I don't need it.
I think I can do this now.

Starting over. I can do this. I will.

I am having a horrible time with motivation. I know what I need to do, but it is so hard. I turned 60 last month and I just can't help thinking 60 is old and I need to just relax and enjoy life. So what if I am a little overweight. I am old. I deserve it!
Oh No. It is that thinking that is causing me so much problems with healthy eating and exercise. How, oh how, can I turn my thinking around?????

10 months on Spark people. I am staying under 120 for a month now. But I have to remember to still track food, exercise, and weigh myself. I am still working on 115, but I am very happy where I am now.

Seven months on spark people and I have lost almost 30 pounds with the support of my sparkfriends, the food tracker and my fitness page.
I use the spark videos on line and have a couple of spark DVD to help get me back in shape.
I am close to my goal weight and this is getting harder. I want to eat everything. But I plan to stick with it. I am not going to give up because I have a "I have to eat everything in sight day."
I have been on Spark people for almost two months now. I love it here. Everysone is so supportive. Lots of good information. I can't believe how tracking your food can really make a difference. I also find the reports to be very informative.
My reason for wanting a healthy lifestyle is for my grandbaby. I want to be able to get down on the floor with her. I want to play ball with her when she is older. Then maybe even go rollerblading with her in a few years.
I love being a grandma and I want to be a grandma for a long time.
To be comfortable in a swimsui this summer. I want to start a tradition with my first grandbaby (and any others to come) of going to the beach each summer with grandma.
Now that I am 60, it is ok to be a bit overweight and still be acceptable in a swimsuit. After all the body is not what it used to be.
Cardio 6 times a week.
Stretching each morning.
weights 3x a week.
Track food eaten. This is the key. To track even the days that I fall off the wagon.
After keeping my weight off for a year, I am backtracking. I don't know how to stop this.

Hope your Easter Sunday was blessed.
On Easter we celebrate love,
love coming down from heaven,
love blanketing the earth
in a transforming embrace;
unique and infinite love,
giving more than we can imagine
for us, to cleanse our sin,
a perfect sacrifice, Lamb of God,
the walking, talking Word.
He is teacher, role model, friend,
this God in human form,
dying, then rising from the dead,
proving all who believe
will also rise
to have eternal life, with Him,
Lord of all.
Oh, Happy, Happy Easter!

Dropping by to wish you a fantastic week ahead and a Happy Spring! Hope you enjoy the following Springtime Poem....
Spring of Life
When winter days give in to spring
and trees begin to bud
I can see all God handiwork
from the grass to the stars above
The joy and warmth the daylight brings
as the birds sing songs of praise
for they are also happy
for the earth that God hath made
and when the coolness of the evening comes
and the dusk gives way to night
we close our eyes and say dear Lord
thank you for the beauty of life.
