McJoyful's Journey to Health

It's time to finally lose this excess weight and get fit and healthy. I have spent most of my 48 years struggling with my weight and losing the battle most of the time. My husband and I have been happily married for 15 years and have done a lot together....including adding on the pounds. Over the past year, we have really focused on getting our finances in order so that we were no longer living paycheck to paycheck. The key for us was doing a budget using virtual envelopes.

It's time to finally lose this excess weight and get fit and healthy. I have spent most of my 48 years struggling with my weight and losing the battle most of the time. My husband and I have been happily married for 15 years and have done a lot together....including adding on the pounds. Over the past year, we have really focused on getting our finances in order so that we were no longer living paycheck to paycheck. The key for us was doing a budget using virtual envelopes. It's amazing how quickly a little bit of money saved each week towards something adds up.

Now we are applying the same idea to our weight loss. We are focusing on adding activity into every day and tracking what we eat. I will be turning 50 in a couple of years and am determined to begin the new decade fit and fabulous.

I love all the motivational helps through SparkPeople and cannot wait to meet more of you! Together we can inspire each other onto our goals!

My Program:
Although I joined SparkPeople a few years ago, my official start day actively using it was June 2, 2014.

I am using the SparkPeople nutritional tracker and focusing on staying within not only my calories, but also my carbs, fats and proteins. I am eating more natural, quality food that my body craves. I also use my Fitbit One to track my steps throughout the day.

Personal Information:
I am from northern Indiana. I am married to a wonderful man. We were never able to have kids, but we have two dogs that keep us entertained.

Other Information:
One of my favorite weight loss quotes is:

Do Not Reward Yourself with Food
You are Not a Dog!

Oh I was thinking the same thing. I know I can keep doing the virtual ones and hopefully I will also be able to begin some more 5K to race in. I actually preregistered for one at the end of October called the Everglow 5K. I hope it works out. From what I understand it doesn't matter if I run or walk part of it. I know others who have been more successful doing these races and changing their lifestyles to be healthier. I know we can do it. I can't wait some day we will look back and say 5K oh no problem. Maybe one day I will do a mudder or a triathlon. Who knows what we can do since we can do what we set our minds to do.

I can't either. I am super excited we are going to rock it. Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement. Next weeks weather is going to be much better so says the weather people. Have you thought about doing any other 5K's in the near future?
