I hope to encourage and be encouraged along this journey to better health. Hope to gain some friends as I lose the weight! I walk as my primary exercise.

So what was the big moment that got me here? Some significant health issues. I actually thought I was relatively healthy. I thought I ate relatively well. I was in denial.

I want to do more than just be here for more years; I want those years to be incredible, awesome, years with my dear husband and son and old ...

I want to do more than just be here for more years; I want those years to be incredible, awesome, years with my dear husband and son and old and new friends! I want us to go on more hikes, longer hikes, fun outdoor adventures. And I want to do more than just struggle to keep up. Who knows, I might lead the pack someday!

So, I am here. I am learning. And I am so very grateful for this community. Now I have to do my part. And I need to get the courage up to take a full length "before photo" at my evaluation at the gym! Got to start from somewhere, right?

Hey! Sounds like your summer has been a very busy but fun filled one! The summer seems to be flying by so quickly for me. I will soon be back into the swing of things again with my job. I am very fortunate to have the summers off but I sure hate to have it end. Anyway, not much going on in my world just trying to make healthy choices and get my exercise in! emoticon I will say this heat wave has made exercising even a bigger challenge! Have an awesome day! emoticon emoticon

Hey there! How ya doin'?

My week went pretty well & I'm sure next week will be even better. For every thing I did in furthering my journey toward better health, there were some things left 1/2 done or not even started. That's OK though as long as I keep moving forward. What is it the Spark book says? "One step back, Two steps forward".

I hope that whatever happened in your life this past week, whether super good or maybe not so good, that this coming week is one where you can continue good habits and strengthen weaker areas.

Between now & Monday, may your weekend be both safe & FUN!!
Marie
