I've been on a long and winding road that has finally led me to SparkPeople and you guys!





I wish this was my car-so beautiful.





This was a great festival until the next morning when we were shrouded in fog. Can't fly in fog.



I have 5 pics in my gallery

A Change for the Better

I am struggling with changing bad habits. The changes could save my life as I have Diabetes 2. I feel that with support I may be able to achieve my goals.

SparkPoints: 2,490

Fitness Minutes: 1,754

My Goals:
My goals are very tiny ones. Like one pound at a time or a couple of pounds at a time. And then when (not if) I reach that goal-I celebrate by yelling-Yipeeeeeee!

My Program:
I am logging in all food I eat and I've made up a couple of receipes too. I use the calculator to figure out portions. Never in my liife have I been able to portion out food. Sure I want to eat sometimes, but I push that feeling away, asking why do I want to eat now?I'm not hungry.

I'm doing water arobics and I've missed many classes I had taken in the past. I remember what we did and I work on those moves. I'm in the pool for about an hour or more. I love water.

Also, I walk with an IPAD or walk with my husband for at least 20 minutes to an hour.

Other Information:
I love SciFi at least a lot of it and horror movies that are more campy than anything else.

I love films. Old movies I find a lot of fun and interesting. I love the ocean life and I love to see films on our universe, very interesting. I find I have diverse interests. I love whale watching too.

I'm very proud of myself-and that means my self-esteem is much better. I always have room for improvement and I'm up for that.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR UNFLINCHING SUPPORT.

I'm in the place I need to be.

Joanie

Hi Joanie,

Thanks for the e-mail! Just wanted to swing by and give you some encouragement here. Compulsiveness can be a good thing when you're compulsive about something important - like tracking your nutrients. It's amazing isn't it when you start looking at where you may be lacking for a nutrient. I'm compulsive about keeping my bones in good health and had found that I was lacking in calcium.

Keep tracking and you'll keep losing!! Have a great weekend!

Debbie
