The Golden Years Just Got Easy!!

Now that I'm more fit the Golden Years Just got Easy!!
When I was at my highest weight 166 lbs, all I wanted to do was go to work eat and sleep. I was always tired.
I didn't want to play with my grandchildren, they were such a handful. That was when I finally decided I have to do something with my weight problem!
I felt like my grandchildren didn't like visiting me because I was the boring grandma lol.

When I lost my weight and started to get my energy back They didn't want to go home after being here for a couple hours! They wanted to play with Grandma!! I had more energy to play with them, all of a sudden Grandma is fun!
Now That I'm more active on SparkPeople and Joined more teams, I am learning to exercise, I never bothered with exercise before but after losing 35 pounds I really needed to firm my flabby body!!!
Working on nutrition to keep the weight off and exercising to firm up!!

Isn't it amazing that George Carlin - comedian of the 70's and 80's - could write something so very eloquent...and so very appropriate.

A Message by George Carlin:

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways , but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, ' I love you ' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

My Goals:
My Mini goal is to get strength back into my legs. Once I squat down now I can't get up unless I have support. For some reason after back surgery in February 2009, I lost alot of the strength in my legs. Also I used to lift 50 + pounds off the floor repeatedly, now I'm lucky to pick up 15 pounds once in a while. I want my strength back!!!
I joined weight watchers 2 years ago. I started at 166 pounds now i'm 133 pounds, I'm 5'2" and my mini goal is to be 125 pounds. Eventually I want to go all the way down to 111 pounds.

My Program:
My Husband Dave and I go walking every morning weather permitting, we walk about 1 mile. Then I walk on my treadmill and work out on my Elliptical Trainer. I also have 3 and 5 pound weights. And I have a big blue ball (LOL) Bands and exercise mat. I live in a Subdivision with a Community Pool right Next to my house, I take advantage of doing laps and water Exercises as much as I can. I'm doing back therapy exercises.

Personal Information:
Utah is where I live, I'm married with 2 married daughters. I have 2 granddaughters and 2 grandsons.

Other Information:
My youngest daughter and I started taking knitting classes so far I learned to knit a scarf and a beanie hat and I taught myself to make leg warmers. Guess what everyone gets for christmas this year lol, THE bonus: I don't think about food all the time while knitting.

**We Are Friends**
Whether the day is good or bad,
Whether I'm feeling happy or sad,
If I have a need, you’ll comprehend;
You’ll be there to share and be a friend.

Other people may fill my day,
But never in such an important way;
We support each other ‘round all life’s bends,
It feels so good that we are friends.

☆The Miracle of Friendship☆
There's a "miracle" called Friendship,
That dwells within the heart
And you don't know how it happens
Or when it gets its start
But the happiness it brings you
Always gives a special lift,
And you realize that friendship. . .
Is God's very precious gift!

Blessings
Often when I see the sunset resting in the west,
And think about the day that now is gone,
I reminisce about the past and know that I've been blessed,
With gratitude I wait to see the dawn.

Often when I hold my kids, I thank the Lord above,
That love and joy has found its way within,
For when I look around about at how some other's live,
I understand the way it could have been.

Often there is discontentment and a lack of love,
And pain and sorrow have the upper hand,
Instead of putting family first, it's all about careers,
Instead of rock, they build upon the sand.

Seldom do I envy those who live with wealth and fame,
To have those things, they often paid a price,
So I am just content to live with riches from above,
And thank the Lord for blessings in my life.
