Ready for Adventure

6/2014 So I didn't lose the 50 lbs I wanted to, but I did lose 15 lbs and become much more active. I did learn to standup paddle board and we did take our trip to the Big Island where we took several stand-up paddleboard excursions with snorkled with dolphins and honu (Hawaiian green turtles).

Discovered that I really am happier and feel much better when I am active, so am working on incorporating that into my daily life.

9/2013 We are planning a big vacation next spring and I want to be ready to hike and snorkle and maybe even learn to surf!

I am 50+ with a goal to be 50 lbs lighter and much healthier in 8 months--just in time for a trip to the Big Island of Hawaii!

Fitness Minutes: 5,662

My Goals:
GOALS:
- Plan meals and eat healthy food!
- Be more active!
- Have more fun!
- Ultimately be down 50 lbs

My Program:
Planning meals. Getting in activity every day! TRACKING!

Working on CONSISTENCY!

Personal Information:
Am 55 and had been steadily gaining weight since my 40's--sedentary job, a little bit of a workaholic, just not paying attention.

Lost 15 lbs in the fall and have gained some back.

Short term goals: Pay attention. Be consistent--log in to SparkCoach, be active every day, handle stress at work without food (breathing, yoga, laughing, friends) and TRACK everything!

Medium term goal: Lose the rest of that 50 lbs. I can already do all the fun things, but it would make them even easier and more fun!

Long term goal: A healthy active lifestyle!

I am aware that I have a long road and have lots to learn. I am committed to being open and putting in the necessary time and energy. Consistency has always been difficult for me, but I am starting with small steps and building from there.

Have one husband, two dogs. They are very supportive and are all benefitting from my meal planning and increased activity.

Other Information:
FAVORITE QUOTES:

"Persistence is far more important than perfection."

"No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everyone on the couch."

"Losing weight is hard. Maintaining weight is hard. Staying overweight is hard. Choose your hard."

"In my experience, the greatest successes donít come from grandiose scenarios of good intentions engendered by temporarily pumped-up motivation. Rather, the most lasting and significant positive effects result from small things, done consistently, in strategic places." --David Allen
