Journey

Just remember, one foot in front of the other will get you where you need to go if you focus on the destination.

Apparently, I forgot this over the past year and haven't been focusing on the destination. Lucky me though, when I weighed myself and committed to coming back and doing the program, I came back with the same weight as when I left.

I've had many, many personal challenges over the past year and lost sight of what I need to do for myself and my health. So I'm ...

I've had many, many personal challenges over the past year and lost sight of what I need to do for myself and my health. So I'm recommitting myself to myself and doing what I need to do for me to get healthy and active and feel better about myself and my body.

Member Since: 6/14/2010

SparkPoints: 11,244

Fitness Minutes: 13,516

My Goals:
Goals:
1. focus on inches more so than the scale
2. eat healthy - get my calories in
3. exercise, exercise, exercise
4. continue to drink my water
5. focus on the positive and not the negative
6. and don't quit!

My Program:
Exercise program - week of 7/9/12:

MWF: 3-4 mile walk w/ Leslie Sansone
TTrSa: Zumba & 30 min The Firm for cardio/weight training.
M-F: will do 1 mile walk each day while at work

Nutrition:
Good carbs, lots of protein, fresh fruits/veggies, plenty of water, NO soda, minimal fast food (if I do, it will be the healthier versions)

Support:
Log in to Sparkpeople every day, keep in contact with my positive supporters, and minimize contact with those who want me to fail or stay as I am.

Most important, I am going to have FUN with this program!

Personal Information:
My name is Angela and I lost my sister due to obesity. She didn't want to try to lose weight and said that by eating the way she did, it was a form of slow suicide. Before you judge, she was bi-polar her entire life. I'm currently the age she was when she passed away and my parents are concerned about my health. Even though I don't weigh as much as she did and have less health problems, I'm the only child left so they are going to worry.
So, this program and weight loss is for me first, my parents second, and in memory of my sister who did not have the mental or physical strength to take her own weight loss journey.

Other Information:
I love movies & reading & spending time with friends.

My family is in the Midwest & I'm on the East Coast - by myself (except for the cats that is!)

I also had to have my gallbladder removed (hereditary issues) on 3/14/13 and it had set me back but I'm slowly getting back to what I love most - exercising and being healthy!

I just wanted to say hi and tell you that even though I've been away from SP for the past several months (bogged down with work and stress) I am looking forward to ending the mighty-year-of-challenges that has plagued me this past year and start fresh soon... I may be still a bit scarce around here for the next little while but I did want to let you know that I've been thinking of you and hope you are doing well in life, in happiness, and in your journey.

Ok. I've been MIA for a few months. October-January are my toughest months to get through - see above for entire picture. My sister's b-day is in Oct, mine is Nov, Xmas and then she died in Jan. These months I basically bury my head in the sand and just maintain. I'm working very hard to get my mind back in the game.

So any and all encouragement is very much needed and welcomed.
