On Track and Feeling Positive

I'm a long-time Spark People member. I've been on and off for many years but came back again a week ago after a lot of self-reflection and a hard reality check about what I do to keep myself from reaching my goals. I decided to start again as if it were Day 1 and, more importantly, to go easier on myself and stop trying to be "perfect." Maybe if I could just cut myself some slack and go into this lifestyle change with the attitude that I am doing the best I can do each and every day - maybe ...
I'm a long-time Spark People member. I've been on and off for many years but came back again a week ago after a lot of self-reflection and a hard reality check about what I do to keep myself from reaching my goals. I decided to start again as if it were Day 1 and, more importantly, to go easier on myself and stop trying to be "perfect." Maybe if I could just cut myself some slack and go into this lifestyle change with the attitude that I am doing the best I can do each and every day - maybe I'll succeed this time.

I lost 3 lbs. this first week and I am delighted with that achievement. I used my nutrition tracker every day, and that is my most important tool because it keeps me focused and accountable. I didn't get nearly as much exercise as I had planned because I have been hit really hard with allergies this year and I've been exhausted from working - and sneezing - LOL. I'm okay with this because I know I'll have days and weeks when I do better than expected with exercise. Those times when I have to pull back a little, for whatever reason, I'll just look forward and know I will have those good weeks.

All in all, I'm positive that with my new "easier on myself" attitude and the support of my Spark Friends, I'll reach my goals. Instead of looking to reach my goals "fast," I'm looking at reaching my goals at "just the right time." The most important thing is that I feel positive that it is going to be "when" I reach them, not "if" I reach them!

Member Since: 1/3/2012

My Goals:
Lose 32lbs. and get back to healthy eating habits!

My Program:
Stay in my calorie range; keep an eye on my nutrition every day; get in some exercise every day.

Personal Information:
I live in sunny Arizona with my DH. I love the Lord with all my heart, my soul and my strength, and I am richly blessed. I have three adult children and two young grandsons. I work part-time and since getting a much needed hip replacement a couple of months ago, I'm now able to walk and exercise without pain!

Other Information:
I have two wonderful rescue dogs that I adopted shortly after I lost my sweet Pug who I had for 15 years. DH and I are amazed at how much love these two girls give us - I know they love us because we took them out of the animal shelter and gave them a safe and loving home. Their favorite thing to do is take an evening ride on the golf cart with DH and me!
