I'm ready. I'm my new project. Now the fun of creating the lifestyle that I truly want begins.

Tom Venuto: "You can either make excuses or get results, but you can't do both."

Toby and Maureen are my walking buddies. They love to go for walks and are so disappointed if we don't do it. I hate the little sad looks they give me when I let them down. Talk about motivation! LOL We try to walk every day. Some days the walks are longer than the others.

I've lost significant weight in the recent past but have managed to put it all back on. I have been fighting depression and I don't know which ones the chicken and which ones the egg... did I regain the weight because I'm depressed or am I depressed because I regained the weight? The jury is still out on that one.

I love Sparkpeople.com but have struggled with using it for awhile. When you are so blue, it's hard to read about other people's joy. It seemed to make me even more sad. But alas, I'm on the up swing and am working on me. I knew a lot before, just need to see how much I remember.

I have to find a little bit of joy in every day. That use to be an easy thing to do! When did it get so hard??? Working on me and my attitude is a great place to start.

"Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He's the one who will keep you on track." Proverbs 3:5-6

"For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome." Jeremiah 29:11

My collection of favorite quotes:

Gatorade Ad: You have a choice. You can throw in the towel or you can use it to wipe the sweat off your face.

Unknown: We are not human beings going thru a temporary spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings going thru a temporary human experience.

Shakespeare said, "There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so."

Tosca Reno, "The Eat Clean Diet": "... I�ve come to learn that being consistent does not mean being perfect. I don�t burden myself with unrealistic expectations that lead to disappointment, but I make every reasonable attempt to stay on track because I want to be proud of myself at the end of the day. And if I�ve slipped a little, I don�t allow myself to slide right down the hill; I get back on track. "

Jim Rohn - "If you don't like where you are, then change!
You are not a tree!"

JOYATLAST: "Excuses are exposed for the cheap saboteurs they are at a finish line. "

John Wooden "Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do."




Member Since: 2/7/2007

Fitness Minutes: 39,479

My Goals:
I want to create new habits. Being thin is only part of my goal, being healthy is the other, most important part.

I want to try and achieve an active lifestyle by adding more physical activity to my days. A reborn use-to-be-couch-potato turned athlete.


My Program:
Not to give up. I know what to do, but not getting discouraged is the hard part. I intend to weigh in on Saturdays. I can't take the stress of weighing in more than once a week!



Personal Information:
I have two - four-legged kids (hey! they count) and I love them dearly. I lost Princess Daisy on 7/13/13. I still miss her. I lost Toby on 9/19/14 and am grieving deeply. Maureen and Nicky foot the bill of my aching heart by showing their love every day.

I love to walk and try to do some small amount every day. I have DVDs down in the basement and since budgeting is a restriction, need to find free ways to lose weight. I have some equipment but I hate to workout alone. Have to find a exercise buddy.


Other Information:
If only I could lose weight while reading books. I'm an advid reader but find reading on the treadmill difficult.

    Hey there - saw that you are on 1/2 days at work - how is that going?

    Also, I posted my blog about the fat dunk tank, since you asked!

    Stay strong!

    Hey lady, came by to say hello and saw that Toby has passed away. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I lost my Beau in June and it's been a hard time for both me and Kingsley.

    I hope that you and Maureen are healing even though I'm sure you're missing your buddy.

    I am here, cross your fingers back to stay and learn more from this journey. It's hard to realize it takes consistency but apparently it's a lesson I need to keep learning. Thinking of you and hoping your journey is treating you well.
