Pamela in Idaho is looking for change!

Today I am full of hope. I am excited to become a more positive person and to improve every day! I want to be a joy for others to be drawn to and to love. Help me, Lord, to be the best I can be today!

My Goals:
My goal is to be able to play with my grandchildren without getting out of breath, be seen in my swimsuit without mortification and have a healthy self esteem once again.

My Program:
I'm trying to stay under 1200 calories each day. I eat no refined "white" anything. Very few carbs, lots of veggies and a few fruits.

Personal Information:
I live in a little town in North Idaho. We live on 13 acres of forest and love it. I'm looking for a walking partner if anyone lives near CdA.

Other Information:
Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can break my heart.

People may not remember what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel.



Welcome Back


Happy Face


Best Wishes

Hi Pamela and welcome back to Spark People and our 50+ Members team where you will find lots of information and tons of support and encouragement from all our members. You will find that we also have fun along the way. Drink your 8-8oz glasses of water a day (If you only drink one now, add to as you are able until you are drinking your 8 cups or more a day), watch your portion control (measure everything in the beginning...guaranteed it will get easier) and walk, dance or do any exercise you enjoy (start with 10 minutes a day or several times a day and add to it as you are able or have time). Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily (guaranteed to work if you use them consistently and honestly). Pick one thing to thing at a time. Don't try to change to many things at once as that can be very overwhelming. Just try to take one step, one minute, one hour, one day, one week at a time. They honestly will all add up to the bigger numbers. These tips will definitely help in lowering your numbers and increasing your ability to enjoy life. Don't expect miracles right away...this is a lifestyle change not a diet. You will be much healthier in the long run. Post any concerns, comments or questions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
Start each day with a positive thought just for that day. Reading and reflecting on an inspirational thought or message before you start your day can put you in a positive frame of mind.
Your thoughts determine whether you have a good day or a bad day. Fill your mind with positive ideas, suggestions, and thoughts. You will find it will change your attitude and changing your attitude can change your life.
Sometimes just reading an inspirational quote or a short paragraph helps one see the positive in a situation. Sometimes as your day progresses you just need to take a break...Take a mental break and read or think about a message of inspiration.
Never underestimate your power to change and improve! You are a good person, with wonderful qualities, and you can reach your goals!
If I can be of any help to you, please let me know with a spark mail or a comment on my page. I am here for you.
God bless you on your journey to a healthier you.
