Make a plan and take steps for success. :)

- Now is the time to take care of me, choose, plan and achieve my goals.

-How are you feeling? Doing? (the weather in your world)

- If I don't take care of me, I can't take care of you.

- Go exercise. It makes you feel good!

- EASY does it . . . . . . . . . breathe.

- Stop and give yourself credit for *everything* you do, and appreciate the things you have to be thankful for.

Member Since: 5/19/2009

SparkPoints: 20,317

Fitness Minutes: 13,637

My Goals:

- To become more self-observant and be able to better plan my activities to reach my goals.
- To better articulate my goals.

- To learn how to adjust my diet to incorporate watching both carbs and, now, saturated fats.
- To find better perseverance.
- To get it off and learn how to keep it off!

My Program:
I track my food (500 calories less then my basal needs) watching calories, saturated fat, carbs, fiber and protein, and work to exercise more regularly to burn more calories, thereby lowering my weight. I am learning to incorporate more whole foods and healthy vegetables thanks to both The Suppers Program and the Whole Foods Wellness Club.

Personal Information:
Im a pretty well controlled Type II Diabetic with an insulin pump. I've lost 40 pounds previously on my own with diet and exercise, but it is tough on your own (from 178 lbs., I returned to 220 when my parents were nonstop sick for a year and a half and my mom died).

I know that the sense of community here and all of the positive reinforcement (Spark Points!) will help me more easily to reach my own goals. Im glad to be here and trying it again.


Other Information:
I love audiobooks and the wonderful hot tub at the gym.

Thanks for your comment. Yes, I prefer shopping the Shoprite (although it's 10 miles from me) vs the Acme in town (cause they are VERY expensive here. That's the only choices we have since they closed up the Pathmark and ShopNbag in the last year or so. Wello good luck on your weightloss and anytime I can be of help just reach out to me.

Hey, here's your trophy for successfully using the thesaurus words in a sentence and giving a vivid image of a survivalist scene! (at least the dagger wasn't used in a Donner party-like manner, Lol) emoticon
