I now have 5 grandchildren and I want them to remember me as the "FUN" grandma. They and my hubby are some of my reasons for working so hard. But the main reason is me. I am not happy at this weight and want to be fit again. I decided it was time to update my page and since it is all rainy and yucky outside, what better time...I have been in this a while, met my goal and didn't do well with maintenance. LOL! Now I am back and taking all the lessons I learned the first go around and adding new ones along the way. Wow the site has really seen some awesome changes and I am taking advantage of them all. I went over some of my old blogs and really have seen changes in me as well. I am more positive and don't have as much on me as before. The kids are all grown and all have kids of their own. I don't want to be the grandma that sits and watches her soap operas all day, I want to be the "FUN" grandma. Nothing like playing like a kid to say farewell to all the pounds. I am learning to like breakfast and I do meditation and journal each night. I am determined and positive about my ability to succeed. After all I did it once and I have the entire Sparkpeople family to help with that. Totally into all the challenges to choose from and unlike that old dog, I can learn new tricks. I have back issues and that makes it hard some days to do all I want to do but I do what I can. I also have the knowledge that this is a journey not a race.. Small goals lead to bigger ones. Together we all can succeed!!!

Favorite Quotes include "Happiness is not getting what you want but wanting what you've got" Garth Brooks. "Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint on the clouds of doubt,
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar.
So, stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things go wrong that you mustn't quit".

    I don't know if there is a limit to number of friends. I was just checking in on some of them and it hit me how many I don't know where they are now. Just got me thinking. I have around 70-80.

    Thanks for your support in response to my community post. The trainer was funny this morning. As she introduced this exercise, she says to me, "I never would have thought to ask you to do this in January." emoticon

    Yeah. I've come a long way in 7 months of work with the trainers. They've been awesome and I'm thrilled that they've helped me return to running.
