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: 38,746

My Goals:
2017 Winter 5% Challenge

Exercise Commitment: I plan to do chair exercise video 3 times a week (Mon, Wed, Fri) for as long as my home situation requires. And I will add two days of going to the pool (Tuesday & Thursday) as weather and situation improves.

Nutrition: I plan to use follow the WMTS plan (weigh, measure, track & stay within my calorie range). I am going to make a weekly menu plan so that my meals have structure and am also going to eat at least one fresh fruit and veggie each day.

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. fit into an airline seat com

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

    Rather than aiming to be perfect,
    just aim to be a little bit better today
    than you were yesterday.

    Thanks for our comment on my loss of my cousin. We grew up together and she is the last of her siblings (5 kids) to pass now. Will be a sad funeral.
