I Have High Hopes for Success!

I am 57 years young, and am determined not to go forward into the rest of my life with a weight problem. I am also newly married (first time), have 3 stepchildren, a demanding job. So you can see, the stress in my life can be considerable. I admit that this is not the first time I've tried to lose weight. But I've been doing very well, developing healthy new habits with SparkPeople, and I hope that this is the year I can finally achieve my goal of a healthier, and slimmer, me!

Member Since: 5/16/2006

SparkPoints: 11,519

Fitness Minutes: 5,289

My Goals:
- Lose 24 lbs.

- Get in great physical shape

- Learn to cope with stress in healthy ways

My Program:
Because I have tried (and failed) to stick with a diet and exercise program before, I have set very small, incremental goals, and try to work up to larger goals every week. For example, I started a few weeks ago with a goal of drinking 6 glasses of water/day; now, my goal is to drink 6 glasses of water/day. Overall, I am more concerned with getting really fit and healthy than looking good (although that would be an added bonus).

Other Information:
I love to cook, but with a new, demanding job, I'm having a hard time making healthy dinners for me and my spouse.

Welcome to our Gabriel Team! emoticon

This is a wonderful process and a great way to
be successful!! I have been following TGM for
over five years and what a difference it has made
in my weight management.

Please let me know how I can help you and support you
and come talk to us in our forum so we can get to know
you and how we can help.

I also run intervals on my treadmill. Love it! And eat
a mostly vegetarian diet, meditate and love to cook healthy
yummy foods. We have a lot in common. Would
love to get to know you better.
