I'm in my 40's and am excited to reclaim my health. A medical situation brought some health issues to light - it's been dealt with and my resolve is strong!

I'm not a patient person by nature (although I'm trying to become one!). Learning to respect the process has been my toughest challenge so far. However, I want to be successful and know that laying a solid foundation now will reap huge rewards in the future.

I'm a mom, a wife, and dog lover. Reclaiming my goals while looking after everyone else ha been my biggest challenge. SparkPeople has been the most effective tool for helping meet those goals!

My workouts right now consist mostly of walking.
I do need to add strength training and to increase my flexibility.

    "If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination.
    The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying. "Here comes number seventy-one!"

    "If you celebrate your differentness, the world will, too.
    It believes exactly what you tell it—through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself. Tell the world you are one-of-a-kind creation who came here to experience wonder and spread joy."

    "Defeat may test you; it need not stop you. If at first you don't succeed, try another way.
    For every obstacle there is a solution. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
    The greatest mistake is giving up."

    "You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
    You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
    It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
    Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
    Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew."
