It's Never Too Late for a New Beginning

Hi, I am a 56 year old professional woman who has been a single parent for many years and with both children now grown and out of college, I have come to a place and time where I know I need to get myself as healthy as possible. I was always in good shape and my weight was normal until the last 10 years. I want the feeling of being fit and in shape once again. With Spark People, I know I can do it.

SparkPoints: 25,018

Fitness Minutes: 2,986

My Goals:
To lose this excess weight over the next year and to maintain for a lifetime.

To get walking more each and every day and then hopefully work to a slow jog....


My Program:
Eating 5 small meals a day

Drinking lots of water

Staying away from my food triggers (much of that salty junk food...)

Personal Information:
I currently live in Virginia but have lived on the East Coast, West Coast and Gulf Coast. Hope to retire in the next few years to the West - maybe Arizona, New Mexico or Nevada. Prefer the dry climate -- humidity and me don't get along!

Other Information:
I love a great comedy and of course I am and always have been a hopeless romantic. I love to keep up with current events and reading is a priority for me.

Hello from the Countdown to Spring team! Can you believe that Spring is almost here and our challenge will be ending? I just want to encourage you to keep pushing yourself to do your best each day. Only YOU can make your goals and dreams a reality, so be sure to work hard for them. You don't need me to remind you that you're worth the effort, do you? Well, in case you do, consider this to be your reminder!
Hugs,
Pixie

ďCHANGE: Donít just talk about it, go out there and do it.
Donít just meditate about it, go out there and create it.
Donít just pray about it, go out there and take action; participate in the answering of your own prayer.
If you want change, get out there and live it."

Good morning from the Countdown to Spring team! I hope you are having a healthy, fabulous week so far. Can you believe that there is less than a week until the first day of Spring? (It sure doesn't feel like it in my neck of the woods, though!) Let's make the most of these final days of the challenge...and then keep that momentum going! We can accomplish a lot if we just commit to doing our best one day at a time. We are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal.
And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach.
But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.
....It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"

"Quit now and keep quitting.
If you are still wondering whether to quit, know that if you quit today, you will quit tomorrow.
Vince Lombardi said, once you learn to quit, it will become a habit.
Once we quit, our mind becomes programmed & will be ready to shut down any time it faces difficulty.
So let's fight now & keep fighting our way to victory!!!
Y'all with me?"

"You've heard the old procrastinator's turn of phrase, "Don't do today what you can put off until tomorrow."
Well, the same goes for procrastination itself. Put if off until tomorrow.
Seize the future you want by seizing the present you have.
Get started now Ė not tomorrow, next week or when you get around to it.
"Around to it" never seems to get here."
-Lee J. Colan

"The scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. Thatís it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Donít give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!"

TGIF, gorgeous! I hope you've had a great week and are ready for a healthy weekend! We've still got 26 days until Spring, so lets not waste a single one of them. I'm rooting for you! See you on the Countdown to Spring team.

"It doesn't make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don't really see ourselves. We don't watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up and silent, with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don't see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don't see yourself looking at someone with love inside your heart. There's no mirror your way when you're laughing and smiling, and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments where you are the most beautiful."
