Thanksgiving Challenge

My name is Valerie and I am a Christian in my 50's. I've been on this journey to lose 50 pounds for 2 years now. I reached 40 pounds lost mainly by limiting alcohol but recently have slipped "one too many times" and am currently at 30 pounds down. I've started my own "12 weeks till Thanksgiving Challenge" on my "Lovely Ladies" Team. You're welcome to join me !

My Goals:
I want to take care of the body God has given me so that I can live a long and healthy life.

I need to lose 50 pounds to get down to 155 and then I want to maintain in the 150's.

I am also tracking some NSV (non scale victories) such as my waist measurement, blood pressure, and cholesterol.

My Program:
Only with the strength of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, can I resist the temptation of over-indulging in alcohol, and all those unhealthy extra calories. I will continue to eat lots of fruits and veggies and walk every day. I've always needed plenty of sleep and I will drink lots and lots of water. Mostly I will be grateful to God for all HIS blessings and my wonderful life.



Personal Information:
I have a wonderful sweetheart and we live on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. I also have two grown sons who are awesome and a terrific daughter-in-law. I'm retired from the medical field. I love my life and it keeps getting better all the time.

Other Information:
I have had success with SP without tracking my food. Mainly I have avoided alcohol and walked a lot. My favorite part of SP is taking photos and writing blogs about them, especially of things I cook and bake, like my own little online cooking class. I started my own team in the Spring of 2014 "Lovely Ladies" but it hasn't been as active as I had hoped. If you're a lady over 40, please join us ! We'd love to get to know you.

Thanks so much for responding to my blog, "Kinda Bummed." You know, I do feel there is a need for more dancing. I don't charge my garage dancers and didn't plan to charge at the dance studio. I felt it was my mission in life.
There is a senior center that would want me to teach, but it is about 45 minutes one way to get there. I'm OK with donating my time, but not 5 gallons of gas for travel!
