YOU ARE WELCOME HERE!

Hi, My name is Josie and I am glad you are here!

I joined SparkPeople on March 31, 2013.

Up to now, I haven't been very serious about becoming healthy, fit, and active, but recent events have given me a wake-up call.

The truth is: I'm nearing 60 years old, and it is getting harder and harder to lose weight and build muscle. Also, I've been thinking of my husband. If I were to have a stroke (God forbid), he would not be able to lift me at this weight. Or, if he were to be the one to have a major health-stealing event, I need to be as strong as I can be in order to help him since he is about a foot taller than I am.

I'm running out of time and so I simply MUST get this weight off this year (or as near to my goal weight as possible), and gain as much muscle as I can. This means that I simply cannot afford to stop doing the daily actions that lead to my goals. I just simply can't fool around any longer.

I can use all the support I can get, so here is to all the wonderful groups, articles, and other things available here at SparkPeople.

Success isn't a destination, it is simply a choice. It's found in each moment of the day within every good and right choice that is made.

Time is my friend because as long as I make good choices consistently, time will work for me. I just need to have faith in the process.

In this effort, I have two mottoes:

"Just do it." - for use when I am procrastinating;

and

"Just say, 'No'." - for use when I am tempted to eat or drink things that will not help me reach my goals in the quickest manner.

And so I begin again...today. (April 27, 2015)

"Break it down:

One step.
One minute.
One mile.
One workout.
One choice.
One bite.
One meal.
One hour.
One day.
One week.
One pound.

As long as you're moving forward, you will eventually reach the top." ~Coach Nicole

"Your motivation will be as strong as the amount of effort you put into making your own decisions (regardless of what they might be) with conscious awareness. Your motivation will be weak when you consider yourself to be helpless against your own urges, feelings and desires, or a victim of circumstances beyond your control."
