I'm in my 50's, with 2 grown sons (wonderful young men!) and a great husband.

I am working on improving some of my lifestyle habits so that I can keep my good health into old age.

I love this quote that I read on someone else's Spark page:

"I can't lose 100 pounds....
but, maybe I can lose five pounds twenty times."

SparkPoints: 5,420

Fitness Minutes: 3,326

My Goals:
My goal is to do cardio and strength training exercise at least 3 times a week. I also track my food intake daily.



My Program:
I just joined a gym after being away from regular exercise for too many months. I'm working with a trainer 2 to 3 times a week and trying to get back to the point where exercise is something I look forward to. I need to make it a habit NOW, because I'll be starting a temporary full-time job in less than a month. If exercise isn't a habit when I start working, it will not be part of my life, so I'm trying hard to make it a habit.

Update: I joined that gym in June of 2013 (almost 9 months ago), and I'm still working with a trainer a couple of times a week, plus exercising on my own on other days. Recently I've been working on increasing my cardio workouts too. I'm definitely getting stronger, and exercise has become something I look forward to. YAY!

I've just gotten serious about trying to lose some weight, so now I'm tracking my food daily and making small steps toward improving my diet.


Personal Information:
I live in Georgia, where the winters are mild and the summers are HOT. I have lived here all of my life (except for an 11 month period in Tennessee) and I LOVE Georgia. It's beautiful, the people are friendly, and it's home.

Other Information:
My sister kept bugging me to check out SparkPeople because she thought it would help me. She knew I was struggling with finding the motivation to stick to my exercise program and eat well for weight management. I'm glad she kept bugging me, because I've found that tracking my food intake and my exercise really DO motivate me.

Hi,
The poem Don't Quit has motivated me many, many times, so I'm glad you also think it is motivating. I visited your spark page and it sounds like you are doing well with your exercise. Good for you!! And yes, I don't know if I can lose 100 pounds, but I can lose 20 pounds 5 times. Love it.
Linda

Hi Cathcart
You are braver than I. emoticon My picture is of my dog. I'm getting up the nerve to have one taken of me, though.

emoticon Thank you for visiting my Spark Page. Despite my growing years, I am in good health and a few bumps along life's highway..
I couldn't believe you have two grown sons. Yon look so young.
I wish your the best in your efforts to improve your lifestyle. It's a wise choice that you have made.

I have been in a slump. I've been gaining weight lately. I just got on the scale and I lost four pounds, but next week I'll put that back on plus some. I'm just not doing very well right now. I'm trying to turn myself around, but not doing a very good job at it. If I could just maintain my weight, that would be great. I just hate gaining every week.
