I'm Back!

Hi!

I have been a member of SparkPeople since November of 2008 but have been absent for quite awhile and have recently come back. I am a 59 year-old woman and have lots of weight that I need to lose. I am blessed that my best friend and roommate is also on SparkPeople and we are doing it together! It helps so much to have support right here on the homefront! However, we can all use all the support we can get so if you need a cheerleader, I will be here for you!

I have LOTS of weight to lose so I will be on here daily!

I wish everyone great success in your weight-loss goals.

Fitness Minutes: 310

My Goals:
My general weight loss goal is to make small goals and reach them one at a time and not beat myself up or set unrealistic goals!

My life goal is to fulfill what the Lord has called me to do and to make a difference in the lives of others.

Specific Short-term Goals:
*Get off some meds for BP and Diabetes.
*Have more energy.
*Be able to shop for clothes in a regular store.

Specific Long-Term Goals:
Get off ALL meds for Diabetes and BP.
Have energy to do what I want to do.
Reach my goal weight and maintain for life.

My Program:
Eat less.
Eat healthier.
Exercise 15 minutes a day to begin and gradually increase that.
Stay positive and motivated!
Support others.
Ask for support when I need it.

Personal Information:
I recently graduated from the University of Central Florida with a BS degree in Psychology and a Certificate in Victim Advocacy. I am currently looking for a job that will utilize these and hopefully allow me to work with victims as an advocate. I want to make a big difference in the lives of others.

Other Information:
My favorite book is the Bible. My favorite movie is "Pay It Forward" because of the message. It is a message that needs to be spread all over. I love watching anything educational like the Discovery channel, the History channel and the Travel channel. On the lighter side, I love The Golden Girls, The Cosby Show and Frazier.

Just stopping by to say hello and to encourage you to keep moving towards your goals, Sparkfriend! Even baby steps add up if you take enough of them...and of course, you know you're worth the effort, right? I'm rooting for you!

"The first step to living the life you want is leaving the life you don't want.
Taking the first step forward is always the hardest.
But then each step forward gets easier and easier.
Each step forward gets you closer and closer until eventually, what had once been invisible starts to be visible.
And what had once felt impossible starts to feel possible."

"Today is a new day. It's a day you have never seen before and will never see again.
Stop telling yourself the 'same crap, different day' lie! How many days has that lie stolen from you?
Seize the wonder and uniqueness of today! Recognize that throughout this beautiful day, you have an incredible amount of opportunities to move your life into the direction you want it to go.”
-Steve Maraboli
