I am strong in Jesus' name! I am winning this battle with Him!!!
I just turned 60 this January 2014. I'm married. I have two grown children, ( an update to this, My son that turned 35 Thanksgiving, 2015 passed away 3/21/16 from pancreatic cancer) I also have two beautiful grandchildren. I live in Staten Island NY. My children really encouraged me to change the path I've been going so I have decided to take a stand. That's why I joined SparkPeople. I want to live a long healthy life. I have physical challenges but will overcome in Jesus Name!
I Read this from another Persons SparkPage and really liked it:
Don't say, 'If I could, I would.' Say instead, 'If I can, I will.'
It is our philosophical set of the sail that determines the course of our lives. To change our current direction, we have to change our way of thinking, not our circumstances. I used to say, 'I sure hope things will change.' Then I learned that the only way things are going to change for me is when I change. Disgust and resolve are two of the great emotions that lead to change. We generally change ourselves for one of two reasons; inspiration or desperation. If you don't like where you are, change it! You're not a tree. "
- Jim Rohn
D - Decide on an action plan.
E - Every thing is possible if you believe and work at it.
C - Consider your choices carefully.
I - Invite others to join you on you quest to become healthy.
S - Savor the feeling of each victory, big or small.
I - Invaluable lessons sometimes hurt, but are necessary for growth.

S - Say to yourself every day, "I AM WORTH IT!" because you are."
I'm taking my Goals a small chunk at a time.

Hi my Beautiful Spark Friends, here is our new mantra:
Today I am shedding pounds as I shred my self-doubt,
Day in and day out, I develop the habits of healthy eating,
Today I am transforming my body into calorie-burning machine,

Did you know that you can do squats over your toilet, using it for support for those with bad knees, even leg extensions or reach side to side stretching your arms. Just be sure to close the lid. What is so great about this you can do this any time you go into your bathroom at anytime to keep the movement going even in between clean ups. Keep a couple of hand weights in there and do a little strength training!! Need some time for yourself, hide out in your powder room. Do a little stretching and Keep on Moving!!
