Focusing on being faithful to the small changes.

I took time today to view my Sparkpage. I realized that I haven't updated this portion of the page in almost two years. Too much has happened to recount so I am looking forward to what I can achieve in the future.

Losing weight is no longer something I might just like to do, it is a have to do. My health and being here for my family depended upon it. In June the Dr. told me that I was a full blown diabetic. My legs were suffering because of this and the lack of care I have ...
I took time today to view my Sparkpage. I realized that I haven't updated this portion of the page in almost two years. Too much has happened to recount so I am looking forward to what I can achieve in the future.

Losing weight is no longer something I might just like to do, it is a have to do. My health and being here for my family depended upon it. In June the Dr. told me that I was a full blown diabetic. My legs were suffering because of this and the lack of care I have been giving myself. I found it rather interesting that instead of being emotional and being upset over this news it was just what I needed to get back with the program to get healthy again. Now it is not a choice but a must and this seems to have changed my ability to stay focuses.

The journey will not be an easy one because I have walked this path before. I always have stumbled in the past. I have left markers at those points and I do remember what side tracked me. I will pay close attention to those markers as I pass them this time. I will remember what caused the stumble and make plans to avoid the stumble the next time. When I fall I will get back up this time. I have to - I want to live.

In a year I will celebrate a healthier me. I will have overcome the health issues that are pulling me down now. I will!

I will be celebrating my 2 year anniversary on January 12th. In those two years I have lost 34 lbs. While I would have liked to have seen a much larger loss, I also know that the loss in itself is a victory for me. Without Sparks I would have gone the other direction. It is through the friends that I have met here that I know I will continue to experience weight loss and success in taking control of many areas of my life.

This is a new year and I am setting new goals. The most important one is to make healthier choices all the way around. Not only in my food consumption but in exercise and life choices.

I want to encourage everyone to join me this year is dedicating themselves to living a healthier life. Making the choices that will allow us to live longer and enjoy life on a higher plane. Start with the smaller choices and work your way up to the bigger choices.

HAVE A WONDERFUL NEW YEAR!

It is a new year and I once again am starting over. But this time I have a new sense of direction. While I do need to lose a lot of weight, what I really need to do is get healthy. So that is my focus. The lost weight will be a big side benefit. A new year, a new focus, and new successes. Hope everyone joins me as we work together to get healthy.
2007
I have done this before. But I can't seem to find the right combination this time and need help. I am stepping out in faith believing that I can do this one step at a time. I am a stay at home grandma that has her grandbaby with her 24/7. It has been hard going back in time to raise her. She is a good little girl but she has changed my life in ways I wasn't prepared for. A New begining for a New Year.

My Goals:
My first goal is to reach the 300 lbs. mark. I am not setting a date because I always get tripped up.

My Program:
For now I am trying to follow the plan set forth by this site. I have made some changes but for the most part I stick fairly close.

Personal Information:
I am a 55 year old mother of three grown children. I have four grandchildren. I live in a rural part of Idaho and enjoy the wide open spaces. Most of my time is spent caring for the people that God places in my life on a daily basis. I am a crafty person and enjoy just about any thing I can do with my hands.

I don't come by here much. Using My Fitness Pal to track my food and exercise. So easy to use on my phone. Haven't had home computer working in quite a while. Just had to come here today though for reaching that milestone! I'll try to get back a little more often though! :) emoticon

Thanks for inviting me back, Dore...so far it is not working; I'll try again late; they seem to be making this a lot harder than they need to...they still had me under a name I used a few years ago and my newer name...now I've had to come up with this newest one...I'll have to find out from Sue how she managed to come back so many times...the thing is, I never cancelled anything...??LOL emoticon

Dore...I am so frustrated just trying to get back to the team. I've got a new name SHARONIFJ and have followed all the directions but, I guess I need an invitation to come back to the team FOREVER FRIENDS (friends of the heart). I've been gone too long and want to make this last effort. I've missed all of you...Hugs Sharon
