On The Right Track to a Healthier Me.

I am an active grandmother of 5. My husband recently retired and I got myself a part time job which allows me the freedom to take time off when I want. We recently moved from where we had lived for over 25 years. We are now living in the country. We are turning over a new page in our life and loving it.

I am an active grandmother of 5. My husband recently retired and I got myself a part time job which allows me the freedom to take time off when I want. We recently moved from where we had lived for over 25 years. We are now living in the country. We are turning over a new page in our life and loving it.

I started with spark people originally for my husband but found that following the eating and exercise information I lost weight. My husband also lost but that is just because I am the one that does the meals which are now less in calories and healthier. My goal is to keep loosing till I finally reach my target healthy weight. My BMI says that I am obese so that is the first goal I want to get out of the obese category. That goal I would love to get to by Christmas.

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"
-Lysa TerKeurst

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

“The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
-Michael Josephson

Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
-Jillian Michaels
