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: 43,548

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

    Thanks so much for thinking of me Jineane. You goodie was so thoughtful and your kind words. Grieving is all new to me. I do feel like a widow in many ways, if that is possible. I now realize my friends and relatives that lost a spouse after many many years must have gone through so much more. I am lucky to have Good friends and Close family and many special spark friends too to help me with the comfort of knowing all the cherished years him and I had together. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I miss him immensely but am so glad we had our special times together and a nice vacation this past year in September which was fabulous.
    hugs and thanks again,

    Thanks so much for your goodie and kind words. I so appreciate this. Friends and family have been wonderful and I am blessed with this. I am missing Bill already but do cherish the
    special memories and time we had together. emoticon
    I am also sick with laryngitis and a bad cough, so this makes it even worse. I am on meds but it takes awhile to get rid of.......
    hugs and many thanks, emoticon emoticon
