Not Going Quietly

This is me starting over. I was on SP for a while but life got crazier than usual and I did what I always do... When I can't keep all the balls in the air I drop ME. I am really thankful to say that I didn't lose much ground. I didn't regain what I had lost. I have lost some ground on my fitness routine and eating habits though so I was feeling like a ticking time bomb. It was just a matter of time. I'm back on SP to stop that ticking and start making progress again. I will be 50 in a little ...

I have lost some ground on my fitness routine and eating habits though so I was feeling like a ticking time bomb. It was just a matter of time. I'm back on SP to stop that ticking and start making progress again. I will be 50 in a little less than a year and I plan to lose at least another 50 pounds by then.

In case anyone recognizes me from before and wonders why I haven't joined this our that team, I have a LOT less online time than I used to so as hard as it is for me, I have to limit myself to what I can realistically keep up with. I am REALLY looking forward to reconnecting with some of the wonderful friends I had though! The support and motivation from Sparkfriends is one of the things that makes Sparkpeople so effective and so amazing.

Personal Information:
I am a middle-aged homeschooling mom and grandma from Oklahoma. I nearly lost myself for a while - could barely stand up on my own and couldn't walk up or down a stair without help. Not a staircase... a stair. Health issues had me convinced I was hopeless. Physical therapy and then swimming convinced me I'm not. O'Neal from Biggest Loser was a huge inspiration for me.

Autobiography in 5 Short Chapters by Portia Nelson

Chapter 1
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk
I fall in.
I am lost ... I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes me forever to find a way out.

Chapter 2
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in the same place
but, it isn't my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter 3
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in ... it's a habit.
my eyes are open
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

Chapter 4
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

Chapter 5
I walk down another street.

thanks for your note. I have done the water exercises. I am lucky in that our Recreation department has a free water exercise class for seniors and arthritis sufferers. Had to stop, starting falling off the ladder and couldn't get out. sometimes this stuff is just plain slapstick comedy and this was one of them.
good luck, Isn't it nice to know someone out there truly understands what you are living. emoticon emoticon
