Workin' Granny

I'm a 60-something granny of six. My goal is to give my only granddaughter a good role model for eating and exercising. I spent years maintaining a healthy weight but in the last five years or so have let my work - 12-15 hours a day - get in the way of that. I have a typical corporate job, but am now looking at retirement **soon** - so I want to get a head start on redoing a healthy life.

I came across the following quote while "googling around" the internet a few days ago and think it's message is so important that I want to share it with my friends!
Sheila

"All of life is a journey; which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there." From A Little Book of Happiness

emoticon Hi~
Thanks for adding me as a friend. My Friends here are my main source of support, inspiration, motivation, and encouragement! We have worked together through both good times and not so good times, but always been there for one another. I am pleased to count you as one of them! I added you to my list to make it easier to keep in contact.
Stay focused, positive, and determined!
Sheila

emoticon Welcome to Spark!
I've been here since Nov. 9, 2009 and have really learned a lot about myself, food, and exercising. I truly feel joining Spark was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I've managed to lose over 100 pounds in that time, but I need to be honest and admit that Iíve regained 20 of those pounds the past few months. I was not consistent in tracking my food and exercising daily and it really made a difference! Iím back on track now and hope to reach the 100 pounds gone mark again by my second year Spark anniversary in November.
One of the best tools is the nutrition tracker. You will be shocked when you enter a typical day's food! Try to track everything you eat and stay within your limits. Donít panic if you slip - we all do! Just put it behind you, you canít change it, and move on. One of the main concepts at Spark is to take two steps forward for each step back!
The fitness tracker is also a great tool. You can track your steps, mileage, cardio exercise, and strength exercises. It will tell you how many calories you have burned.
Take time to make lots of Friends and tell them when you reach a goal or are having a hard time. They are here with praise and support all the time! Don't be afraid to ask any question, no matter how silly you think it is.
Take time to explore Spark. Read and respond to message boards, blogs, and other members' pages. Join challenges on teams. The help, support, inspiration, motivation, encouragement, and friendship you will receive is awesome!
The site can be confusing at times but just keep looking around. There is really a lot of valuable information here!
emoticon Feel free to contact me if I can help you in any way. Drop by my page to say hi.
Stay focused, determined, and positive - you will be successful!
Sheila
