My name is Robin and I am starting again on this journey to revive myself. I have been a SparkPeople Member for a few years. However, I keep falling off the grid. I am in my Mid 50's and have 200 pounds to lose. I realize it is going to take a lot of work and I am up for it. I have 3 children all grown and married with family's of their own, 13 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild and I want to live to see them grow up. I love food, and that is a problem, so I need to learn how to love the food that is good for me and how to prepare it and to exercise. Look forward to meeting you all.

Member Since: 1/7/2012

Fitness Minutes: 418

My Goals:
My Ultimate goal is to loose 209 lbs. So that I can do the things I love in life and be able to share my life with Everyone I love and those I will meet in my Journey back to Me! I have been gone for about 5 months from here and have gained everything back. It has been rough. But I am back on track and feeling better every day!

My Program:
I am reducing the intake of my Carbohydrates and increasing the amount of protein that I have and writing it down, along with an exercise program that I can start slowly, like stretching for 30 minutes a day, twice a day, starting with 5 repetitions and gradually increasing weekly. . I will be doing exercises I can achieve from using chairs, counter tops and my bed to begin with as I can not get down on the floor and get up that easily at this time. And walking!

Personal Information:
I was born in Grand Rapids, Mi. Raised in Toledo Oh. I come from a very large family having 6 brothers and 4 sisters. I am the oldest and have to loose this weight if I want to live to see all my grandchildren raised. I have 3 children 2 sons and a daughter, whom I raised by myself. From them I have 12 grandchildren and one great grand child. My oldest is trying to compete with my mother I think on the large family size, as he has 6 children from the age of 22 to 8 months.

    Hello there!~ So glad to have found you!~Wishing you thee very best in reaching & achieving your goals. I'm not one for diets or exercising so this is definitely going to be a challenge & hard goal for me. or us..Alan wants to do this too!~
    Hopefully I can find recipes we like that'll be what we like & healthier.. I'm the fussy eater..He on the other hand loves all foods..and really will eat anything I cook. Hoping to get educated more on the right food choices & shopping tricks people use to get out of the stores & stay out of them with out junk foods. I love to bake..& decorate..but not much into eating them..thank goodness. I also love to be a chef in my kitchen..and have to taste everything..and I'm pretty full/or almost full before dinner is ready, so I force myself to eat with Alan at the dinner table..Think I do like junk food tho..chips of all kinds,cheeses,and potatoes of every sort. & soft drinks{Mt.Dew} almost 3-4 cans a day. But I am ready to adjust everything.. and we'll see..wish you the best with this..{{hugs}} emoticon
