I have been here before, at SparkPeople, with my weight through the roof. I am a 60 year old woman, determined once again, with the help of God, to get healthy before it's really too late. I used to be fit and active, and somehow let it all get away from me and I'm paying the price. But I'm going to try again . . .

I don't know if you're really that much older than I am at all. I'm 57. It's funny, it feels like a joke when I say it or write it. Time flies!

I hope you get your diabetes under control. My dad has it and has to take meds and shots. It's one of my motivations to get this excess fat off my body once and for all. Also to get back into great shape. If I don't do it now, I'll end up sick and hating that I didn't do something about it when I had the chance. So good for you, for taking control of your diet and exercise! I hope you have a good doctor to work with you.

I don't think most of us ended up where we thought we'd be in life. Life is a real adventure. Some people have it all planned out and it works for them. I'm not one to control or manipulate my life like that. I wanted to see where the Universe/God would take me on this journey and be open to all possibilities. I also wasn't the type that dreamed of my wedding when I was a little girl. I thought I was weird from the start in that way. Like I'm supposed to want and strive for that. Somewhere in the deepest part of me always knew I wasn't going to get married and have children. I'm not sure why that is. I was open to it, but it wasn't a goal. Now I sort of feel like it might happen in the next few years. Funny huh?

Have a great week and give hugs and kisses to your babies Lily and Louie. Chloe and Bella say 'Hi'!

Thank you for the comment on my feed! I think we're all too hard on ourselves at times. For me to weigh 190 (and I've been as high as 219 for a couple of weeks a year ago) is outrageous considering where I've been most of my life. People that saw me on my way up in weight a few years ago would say 'What happened?' I know, rude right? But to them I was a fitness model/body builder type, and so for them to see me in that condition was shocking. It all depends on your history and where you happen to find yourself, when you are making big changes to correct the situation. I'm trying to hold that fit, slim, strong, image of myself in my imagination 'as if' I'm already there. It seems to be helping a lot since I've made a conscience effort to do that. That pic is just another way to reinforce that. I'm going to have some before pics taken this week, so I can have a record of where I started... at 190 anyway. At the end of the 5% Summer Challenge I'll take another pic too. 8 weeks isn't very long, but I'm going to do my best. It just started last Saturday, and I'm logging my food now for the last 3 weeks. I just started logging my exercise and that has turned out to be a huge motivator!

I love seeing your kitties every time I come to your page! So cute!

Have a great week!

I was dusting off the leaves of one of two peace lilies I have and I thought, "I used to name all my plants, but I haven't named these lilies yet....So...obviously, this one I will name Lily. What shall I call the other one? Why, LOUIE of course!!"

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! Big hugs!
