I am, if nothing else, persistent. I have been on Spark People since June 2010 and am still plodding along on my journey to a healthier lifestyle. I am an emotional eater, and have a tendency to procrastinate, which makes establishing good habits a challenge. However I take this journey one step at a time, one day at a time, and eventually, I will reach my goals.

And by perseverance I will reach my goals.


Member Since: 6/25/2010

Fitness Minutes: 48,886

My Goals:
2017 Summer 5% Challenge

Exercise Commitment: I will continue to go to the pool on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays. And with summer and warmer weather I will be out in my garden.

Nutrition: I plan to use the Mayo clinic diet program and the Spark People Nutrition Tracker with the goal of staying within my calorie range. I am going back to basics - drinking water ONLY and no sugared drinks, tracking food, menu planning and portion control - all the things I know I ought to do but have been letting slip.

Motivation: 10 reasons I want to lose weight.
I want to:
1. walk without pain
2. prepare for future surgery (hip replacement)
3. be able to go for long walks along the beach without having to stop and rest all the time
4. have my clothes fit better so I look/feel better
5. decrease my risk of diabetes and/or heart disease
6. go up and down stairs without using the chair lift
7. get ready for my Hawaii cruise in September
8. fit


My Program:
-To take this journey one step at a time, one day at a time, and not to beat myself up if I am not perfect. I want to focus on progress and attainable goals.



Personal Information:
I am:
-63 years young
-live in Western Canada
-have 2 furry kids (cats)
-a Christian
-a hummer - (that way I don't have to remember all the words to a song - just the melody); some people find it annoying, but I come from a family of hummers so its genetic
