I Gotta Be Me

Lately I have been feeling the message that I don't need to fix me, just let the real me emerge. No, the girl in the red bikini is not me. I am now 64 years old. Yet, when I imagined my dream vision of what I'd like to look like, a trim, tan figure in a red bikini came to mind. When I googled "red bikini," this image came up....very close to my dream vision (except I'd have a little bigger muscles!). Since the vision came from somewhere, I'm stickin' to in for now.

Right now, I ...

Right now, I am working on my goals....
I plan to update my page gradually as I let myself emerge.

To date, I have lost 15 pounds on Spark and decreased my waist by 4 inches, getting rid of most of belly fat. My other measurements have not changed noticeably. It took me 1 1/2 years to do it. When I started, I was only just a pound into being considered "overweight" by the BMI charts. I am now in the middle of "normal" for the BMI charts. But, as we know, the BMI chart do not tell the whole story.

Now I want to work on health, body composition and endurance. I also want to continue to live a full & wonderful life and to "Live the life I'm meant to live."

Oh my gosh, I LOVE what you posted on my blog!! I just told my Spark BFF that maybe I am fighting the wrong battles. I said I battle with emotional eating, binge eating, and the occasional lazy day where all I want to do is sit around... maybe I need to spend my time and energy fighting those fights that are more important, and not be worried about the sodium/soda issues if they aren't a BIG problem in my life at the moment. I think it defeated me because I was doing so well, and of course when I am doing well I feel in control and confident and when I mess up more than once (I had a bad day the other day too) I start to feel out of control. But you are so right, have bigger fish to fry and more important battles to win, and I will focus my energy in the right direction! Thank you! :D
