My Journey.........

I believe that if you embark on a weight loss program and you really embrace it then it will become a journey that can only benefit your life and everyone in your life. I started my journey 6 years ago and it has helped shape me into the person I am, which I love....but I believe that I can be even better and that is my goal!

I started my weight loss journey many years ago but until my hypothyroidism was diagnosed just before I turned 40 I was a complete failure. After diagnosis I lost 70 lbs over 4 years, a little at a time and maintaining for several months before losing more. I didn't plan it this way, that is just how it worked out. I put about 10 lbs back on by not paying attention and now I am after those 10 and 10 to15 more. If I can do it, I know that anyone can.

2010 is the year I make my health my priority. No excuses to reach all the goals I have set.

2011 is the year that I discover what works best for my changing body due to this new stage of life. Bring it on Peri Menopause!

SparkPoints: 39,304

Fitness Minutes: 41,415

My Goals:
So much closer to 50 than 40. I was healthier at 40 than I was at 30 so hoping I can say the same for the 50's versus the 40's

My Program:
Drink 10 glasses of water everyday.

Track all my food daily and stay within calorie range.

Cardio at least 5 days a week for at least 30 minutes a day.

Encourage other sparkers which will also benefit and bless me!

Personal Information:
I live in Riverside County, CA and even though I don't like the traffic, smog and all the other stuff that goes with city life, I love the weather and the sunshine, just not every day! I am an outdoors girl that would wither up without a regular dose of sunshine but am finding out I truly appreciate rain.

Other Information:
I am married and in my late 40's. Both of my beautiful children are grown and gone. I have 6 grandchildren that I adore. I have been discovering who I am, other than a wife and mom over the past 8 years. I have rediscovered my love of the outdoors and to be active.

Sorry took so long to reply, got sidetracked by work and life I'm afraid! All sorts of stuff is happening at work and stressing me out. Other than that I'm good, just plodding along. Sorry to hear you've been worried with family stress, I hope that is now sorted. Nothing worse than when there are problems with family, brings you to a grinding halt. Went through years of that with my daughter who was in a really bad marriage, felt so helpless to help her at the time, but all is good now. It was literally like a humungus weight had been lifted off when she finally broke free and started living a happier life :)
Your two day diet sounds very similar to the one I read about, how are you going with that? I'm thinking of maybe starting it myself as it sounds much easier to control myself for two days a week, instead of seven! emoticon

Hellooo! So good to hear from you emoticon I was wondering what happened to you, you just seemed to disappear and then I disappeared! LOL! Hope you didn't do what I did, I managed to put a total of 13lbs back on - I almost got to my heaviest weight - totally disgusted with myself. But I'm clawing my way back now and only have 9lbs to lose. Hey I was just reading about the 2 day diet in a Prevention article yesterday if it's the same one - no more than 50g of carbs for two days a week, is that the one you've started? so what's been happening with you, tell me the goss! :)
