Shared Food Tracker
I am 54 years old, Mother of 4 grown children and 8 grandchildren. I have been dieting off and on since I was a little girl. And have tried just about every diet on the market and more.
Over the past few years(2) there has been many changes in my life. I I had knee surgery about 6 years ago. That has left me some what enabled to do much exercise, it cause extreme pain when I walk or just stand. Which as cause me not to be as active as I once was. I have recently relocated to Mobile. And away from my daughters and grandchildren.
In May I decided that I was going to lose weight, not for anyone but me. And so the first of June I went looking for some information that would help me lose some of this weight. Healthy weight loss. I found SparkPeople.In 2008 Since then I have spend a lot of time here. And have come to realize that I am making changes for the better.
Even with a few rough days.
UPDATE: Recently fell off the wagon. Gained all plus some weight back. But here to try it one more time. I have recently moved to Mobile, Alabama. So I will be on here soon. I hope.
I know I have a long road ahead of me. So My first goal is 26 pounds. I figure if I concentrate on the big picture (over 100 lbs.) I might get discouraged. So small portions of weight is the way to go for me.
Restarted program : December 22, 2014.
Loose 10 pounds and then see how that goes. I would love to lose the whole amount of 185 pounds. But I have to honest with myself.So slow and easy is the key for me.
If I had one dream it would be to weigh about 120. But I vow to listen to my body. If it's happy at 150 then so be it!! :-)
Slow and easy is the road ahead...
A. Stay between 1200 and 1800 daily.
1. Eat a great breakfast.
2. Eat a great lunch
3. Eat a great dinner
4. Drink lots of water
5. Walk 5 minutes during the day, build up endurance.
6. Strength exercises to build up my legs.
7. Be kind to myself, when I am having an off day.
8. NOT listen to those around me that say I am
not going to make it. Because I know I am!!
9. Stop smoking when I reach my 100lb mark.
10. Never be this heavy again!!
I am 50 year old mom of 4. And Grandmother of 8.
Was divorced in 2006.

Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL
Persons born on the Cancer-Leo Cusp can be a bit volatile, swinging quickly from one extreme to another. Movement of one sort or another is familiar to them; physical movement, emotional movement
it is all one and the same to them. They often appear shy one minute and then they are stealing the spotlight the next.
Combining Fire and Water together in a Cancer-Leo Cusp makes for an interesting study. Their vibrant energy is tempered by emotional sensitivity. In turn, their emotions are tempered by the intense ambition they have. They are graceful and strong. Both attributes serve them well.
The fastest way to success for Cancer-Leo is to even out their highs and lows. Learning to maintain stability can pay off for them in a big way. Self-discipline can be attained without losing their spontaneity. By finding their calm center, they can remain confident in themselves.
Cancer-Leo is sensitive to criticism. They may come across as so self-assured that they appear to be living in a fantasy world. They have a strong affinity to food. Imaginative in the kitchen, they can work miracles with a meal. They enjoy pleasure and social gatherings. They don't care to be alone most of the time. They are devoted to their partner. They are generous and creative in their relationships with others. They are good at empathizing with their loved ones.
The Cusp of Oscillation creates people who are traditional, nurturing, flamboyant, ambitious, sensitive, proud, creative, expressive, inspiring, cheerful, practical, romantic, passionate, realistic, generous and emotional. They may also suffer from self-centeredness, hyper-sensitivity, and have dependency issues.
Cancer-Leo may be an intellectual genius or they may be unscrupulous. They have excellent memories. They don't forget any detail
ever. They are fair, and will stand by both friend and foe in times of struggle. At the same time, they may have trouble letting go of grudges or slights they feel, whether real or imagined.
This sign can conflict with Cancer's need for solitude and Leo's need to be the center of attention. If they can reach a comfortable balance, they will be much happier. Since both signs are affectionate and devoted, this rarely causes disruption unless they stray from their partner. Both signs hold family dear and love to spend time in their home. While Leo can stand up to some emotional bruising, Cancer cannot. They may be hurting deep inside and putting on a brave face. While Cancer makes their presence known through their works, Leo likes to make a splash. Those born on the Cancer-Leo Cusp may end up somewhere in between
shy with a bit of flamboyance. Both like to be in control, so this sign may end up trying to run the lives of their family members.
