Hmmm...Last year's SparkPage entry. Nothing has changed much...except my weight I now weigh more than I have in my entire life. It's time. Really time. I have yo-yo dieted for so many years, my body is in limbo and doesn't know WHAT to think. Instead of diving head-on into some "plan", I'm going to track my foods and activity here on SparkPeople for the rest of January and be accountable. To myself.

I want to be around to thoroughly enjoy my kids more and maybe some grandkids in the future. I also don't want to be a burden to them; being too large to do things for myself, as they move on to college and beyond. I was also diagnosed with arthritis in my lower back, pelvis, right hip and right knee; as well as vascular insufficiency in my lower legs. I'm too young for support hose!! Not really, but I need to make the changes.

The fridge gets cleaned out this week and I start by replacing some old favorites with some new, healthier things that I hope will become favorites. I plan ahead and stick to the plan. I cook on the weekends and have lots of homemade meals instead of fast foods.

    Risk - Anais Nin

    And then the day came,
    when the risk
    to remain tight
    in a bud
    was more painful
    than the risk
    it took
    to Blossom.
