My Starting Point





My Husband, Bill, died on March 24th, I miss him every day and I am thankful for every day we had.





Three of my reasons to be as healthy as possible.

Health as a choice

Hello to all members, I am new to both Spark and this Group and I have to admit that this is a new effort for me to share my progress, or lack thereof, with others. I have usually flown solo as far as any weight or fitness issues and watched as friends and co-workers try to decide if they should ask if I am "doing something". My husband is the only person that freely discusses health and weight issues with me (we both share some serious issues) so this will take a little time and adjustment.

Fitness Minutes: 1,210

My Goals:
My primary goal, whether decreasing my weight or not is to get into a more healthy state. I had one parent diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and now two of three siblings in the same place. I do not want to continue the family trend.

My Program:
Consistant and increased activity level with meaningful exercise along with learning to control my intake both in quantity and quality.

Personal Information:
After a rather quiet start in Oklahoma, I followed my Parents across the country, more than once, and am currently in the LA Basin. As I am rapidly approaching my sixth decade, I know that time for change is getting short.

Other Information:
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hill from which cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord which made heaven and earth.

Dear Karen,
Along time back when my life was in chaos and I was an active member of spark people, i remember posting my last entry in my sparks page. That day I signed out and never looked back, well I have been doing some soul searching and decided that it was time I returned and here I am. Your wondering why am I telling you all this, well today when I signed back in the first thing I saw on the last thing I left was your words of encouragement and I wanted to thank you for them. I realized that all these problems I was going through at the time was overwhelming. Well guess what, February I quit my job because I realized that I fed up with letting people walk over me. Then I also told myself as far budgeting and affording foodstuff I will always have that problem I just have to learn to be resourceful. Let me just I had a long while to think about things, I cried about them, I EVEN GOT DEPRESSED ABOUT THEM and in the end I realized that there will always be problems in my life I just have to learn to solve them or at least try working it out. I think I am ready to return and again thank you! emoticon

Brilliant! You are brilliant! emoticon I read your 6/3/2008 "soap box" posting in 50+ members with 50-99 pounds to lose, and it spoke to exactly what I'm trying to achieve this time around.

I'm struggling with a total lack of scale success due to overeating, but I'm trying to curb my eating with observation and behavior changes, instead of a calorie or "diet" regime that sends me back into the "diet mentality" and another failure. I AM having success with adding fruits & veggies and with exercise, just not enough yet to compensate for my eating. After reading your posting, I feel encouraged to keep at it. I want to be slimmer for LIFE!

Thanks for inspiring me! I'd like to add you as a friend.

~ Pam
