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: 37,616

My Goals:
2016 Fall 5% Challenge

Exercise Commitment: I plan to continue going to the pool 3 times a week (Mon, Wed, Fri) and I will add two days of doing my chair exercise video at home (Tue & Thurs) - - with my arthritis I need low impact activities.

Nutrition: I plan to use follow the WMTS plan (weigh, measure, track & stay within my calorie range). I haven't been doing any of these for a very long time, and I know it makes a difference when I do. I also am going to eat at least one fresh fruit and veggie each day.

Motivation: Today's assignment is to list 10 reasons you 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:
-62 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
