Fabulous after 40

I am back again to be with my Spark buddies, and once again to set some goals with nutrition and exercise. I lost my way for a few months, but am determined to get back at it. I do not have before pics when I was bordering 195lbs, simply because I hated my pic taken, and it made me feel worse if I saw one from someone else.Lost 10 on my own before joining spark. I was never sure if I was eating enough when I started the diet, seemed too little but what was too much? A co-worker recommended this ...

I was never sure if I was eating enough when I started the diet, seemed too little but what was too much? A co-worker recommended this site, and I started to track the calories. I soon learned I could eat more food and I was starving myself most days. Without the tracker I have a good understanding of my foods and calories, however I still depend on it, as it makes me accountable, and keeps me signing into spark.

Fitness Minutes: 5,285

My Goals:
I would like to reach 145 pounds. I want to stay motivated with exercise and increase it over time so it becomes permanent in my life. I want to continue to seek out different methods of exercise so I can stay motivated.

My Program:
I will start to track my food daily and meet my caloric range. I will try to eat 5 Freggies and drink 8 cups of water daily . I am doing cardio 3 xweekly of 30min. and strengthening exercises atleast 2 x weekly, which I am slowly increasing with number of exercises.

Personal Information:
I live in London, Ontario, Canada. I am 44, and have been happily married for 17 years. We have 2 amazing boys in their teens. I am a registered nurse, and have been working Orthopaedics/Trauma for 23 years. I have never struggled with weight, until the last few years. I believe age and lack of exercise have played a big factor.

The foresight to know where you are going,
And the insight to know when you have gone too far.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. My Mom is awesome. I actually added a picture to the blog. One of my favorites of her back in the day....

We used to get that all the time; you look like sisters. Actually I guess we still do. The staff at the nursing home know me as me because I look so much like my Mom. She still looks young too. It's actually kind of cute; she wanted me to get her a curling iron, makeup, and nail polish. She is trying to keep up her "appearances".

Gotta love it emoticon
