Finley and Bud, my walking companions
A year on Spark People has seen some significant changes in my life. I have a much better attitude to exercise and fitness, and a much greater awareness of healthy choices on the food front, but I can't in all honesty say that I have lost the weight I wanted to. Now is the time to heighten my efforts, get truly focused and start putting into practice all that I have learnt. A new year, a renewed effort, and a new me!
Am finally starting to make progress and see results. I realise again how important a healthy life is to me, and just how much I want to make substantial changes to be the best I can be. My main goal at this stage is to get to Onederland and it is well within reach over the next few months. I would never have got this far without the wonderful support of my Spark Friends, and I am more determined than ever to achieve my goals!
Goals reset for 1 January 2013-
1)Track, track, track
2)Try and achieve at least 1000 fitness minutes per month
3) Aim for next goal of 199 lbs by Easter
Give an overview of what you are doing to meet your goals.

Good morning, Jenna. I hope you are doing well, you've been in my prayers. I'm so glad the poem was helpful to you. I know what a huge comfort it was to me when my Grandma passed away.
Have a good day, take care.

I came to thank you, Jenna, for your kind and lovely words on the goodie you sent me. I was shocked to read your status. You must all be reeling, trying to cope with such a sudden, tragic loss. I am thinking of you. I hope you are surrounded by love and comfort. Please take care.

I am so glad to hear from you, and it is wonderful news that you feel you've turned a corner in your approach to your health -- good job!! I'm feeling overwhelmed these days, and am hoping for a return to sanity ... maybe after Christmas, huh? But let me say again, how glad I am to hear you're happy with your direction -- great news:)
Wishing you a happy and peaceful Christmas,
