This year I am going to get into a healther way of living, that is why I am so excited about finding Sparkpeople. Ya'll take care of the whole package which is just what I need. Getting this kind of help and support from here is already making a big difference. I know I need to take it slow and do it right so with the help of all of ya'll that is just the way I plan on doing it. Any ideas ya'll have to help me will be tried and used. I have been fat and unhealthy for a long time now and I finally relized I couldn't just wish it away. So losing a lot of wieght is really important but so is learning how and why in food, exercise and other parts of daily living are also important to me.
My goals are to change. Change things that I haven't liked for a long time. I will be working very hard at not only losing weight but changing the way I am seen by others. Also I will be working on how I see and treat others. So basically I would like to reinvent a whole new Nicki, maybe then things will be better
The way I plan on doing this is to be totally different then I am now. New food and exercise for the body. A new and healther outlook on daily living and a whole new image of myself and my action towards others.
I was born and mostly raised in Oklahoma but I have lived in many other states and find that I love the northern states most of all. I have been married to two great men, losing the first to drunk drivers and thank God I still have the second.
I guess the only other thing to tell would be that a few years ago I got hurt really bad on the job and it changes everything. All the plans for the future, the way I am and the way I live. The life me and my husband had made for ourselves. Well now I have decided to change things again and this time it's going to be the way I want them to be and not just let the way I feel or how bad I hurt be the one in charge. This time I will be in charge and things are gonna get better.
Great you have made an important decision, hope we can help in some small way to encourage you and help you on your way.
Every once in a while a few of us on the OKC Team do get together, in fact October we are hoping to meet some for walking at some local park. Check out our forums to see where and when.... or simply ask! We have made efforts to meet newer members and it worked out.
As well, hope you bring some new energy and excitement to the team.
In reply to your comment on my spark page. I'm still looking for a job also. Feel like I'm wasting my time filling out apps and sending out resumes only to hear absolutely nothing. Haven't had an interview since the end of april. The spinning wheel stuff is coming slowly, I get aggravated with it at times and have to set it aside. Been busy lately with crocheting of hats for the group that donates them....they had a retreat a couple of weekends ago.
Sending lots of good thoughts!!! You are way ahead of me with exercising. I find the messages about your fitness minutes encouraging. How are you doing in the heat? Do you have AC? Take care. Sending lots of good thoughts for you... When we keep on track we get that spiral thing happening in different parts of our lives... (and a little setback is no problem, just keep moving forward as much as possible). Awesome wishes for a great week!!
