These are my mantras for this year

No Beat Ups----Just Get Ups

Git Er Done !!!

Every day may not be good but there is something good in every day.

I did not do what I should have done in 2011. This is a new year and a new chance to make a difference.The only one keeping me from succeeding is me.

My biggest downfall is night eating.I am determined to beat my Food Demon and control the night eating.
Also not stopping eating when full and eating when not hungry.
I do have a lot of heath issues that makes it difficult at times. But losing weight will make those health issues easier to live with.

I am so blessed to have a very supportive husband.By now most of you are very familier with him too and know how wonderful he is to me.
I am so glad I found this site. I have made so many wonderful friends who support and encourage me each day.I couldn't do this without them.They have been here for me thru both good and bad.
I will continue to blog every day and do a video every once in awhile.My blogs can be about anything. All depends on my mood that day. Sometimes they are really corny.But if you follow them you will get a good sense of who I am real quick.
I also plan on being very active on this web site. I will be active on message boards and join teams that fit me.I don't want to join too many teams as it will spread me too thin and I want to be supportive to others. Only those that have been thru it can truly understand the ups and downs.

This year my goals for 2012 will be
1.Conquer night eating
2 Lose 60#
3 Avoid stress and all people who cause me stress.
4. Be a better Spark friend

My Long Term Goals

1. Get below 300# ***
2. Get to 250#
3. Get to 200#


Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."

NO BEAT UPS----JUST GET UPS



Member Since: 8/17/2008

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
My main goal is to lose weight to take the load off my heart and all other body parts.
One important goal is to lose enough weight to sit on floor and be able to get up by myself. And to cross my legs.

And to beat my Food Demon and conquer my night time over eating.
Stop eating when I am full and not eat when I am not hungry.


My Program:
Because of health problems exercise is limited to sitting exercises.I have several tapes that I try to use on a daily basis.
I am weighing and counting every calorie I eat. I am trying to stay between 1500 to 1700 cal. Also staying away from restaurants and take out food.Therefore I am cooking more meals and always on lookout for tasty low calorie meals.




Personal Information:
My name is Eleni and I live in Tarpon Springs Florida. I am 66 years old and disabled because of a bad heart.My wonderful husband and I have been married for almost 20 years after dating for 7.We both had teenagers and I wanted to wait.Between us we have 8 children and 12 grandchildren.We had our1st great grandchiId in June. I worked for 21 years as an operator in a power plant that makes electricity.I was one of only a few women to do this job.I retired 12 years ago and now there are no women doing what I did. I originally got my job because at the time companies were being forced to hire women. I was not welcomed in the power plant but I had 5 kids to feed as I was a single parent at the time. I had to prove myself daily for 21 years.
I took an early retirement because of heart but did continue to work as a sercurity guard for another 3 years.Then heart got too bad for me to work anymore. I spend most of my time at home.


Other Information:
I enjoy reading anything except romance novels which I never read.
I enjoy the computer and have been doing more and more on it.I am now on Facebook.
I also like TV and I crochet on rare occasions. I am also a pen and ink artist and amatuer photograher. Altho I haven't been doing much art lately and most pictures are taken from my back room of animals that wander in..
I also was a member of TOPS for many years and spent several years as leader.
Am very happy with the new friends I am making on Spark and their support is helping me so much.They are now family . Hopefully I will be able to help them also . Joining Spark has been one of my smartest moves.

    It's getting closer to Halloween, and I know Heaven is decorated up so beautifully with all the cool decorations of the holiday, just as they were with passing holidays. I love the background, it always makes me smile, and yet...brings tears to my eyes. It really shows your personality.

    I miss talking to you..just like I miss talking and laughing with my Dad...I know I shouldn't cry, because I know the two of you are better off now than you were on this earthly plain, but hey...I still wish there were times we could laugh, talk, or just "sit" and "be" again.

    I'm positive you and my Dad still watch over all of us, and know how much we miss you, but, I still will remain certain that you are both happy. See, didn't I tell you that you'd like my Dad, and that his personality was a lot like yours, with the laughing, joking, etc? i knew you'd get along, and with his brother up there, and others..well, I'm sure all the others who've gone before the two of you, you're all having a great time. I can't wait to join you all.

    Happy Halloween, early, and thank you, again, for being my friend when you were here. emoticon emoticon

    I was on my back porch, having coffee and watching the bunnies in the back yard this morning. I also noticed 2 butterflies dancing and playing for quite some time. I remember thinking, for quite a while now, how many butterflies are in my yard now, where they used to be quite sparse. Then, I realized why and I appreciate the message :)
