Here I go again! Every day is a new beginning, so I'm starting a new beginning, one that WILL lead to a healthier future. (trying to stay positive here & believe it!)

I really like this site, bountiful amount of information and motivation. Being able to keep track of everything just makes it easier.

I want to be healthy & feel healthy! By "feel healthy" I mean I want my energy back because I feel totally drained of it too often. More motivation is that recently my blood pressure started going bit high & I normally have low BP, and of course my arthritis would do better without all the extra weight!

Let's motivate each other & just do it!

Fitness Minutes: 72

My Goals:
My ultimate goal was to lose 84 lbs. When I lost weight last year, I managed not to put it all back on-so have lost 11 lbs toward that goal... 73 to go! I've decided to focus on small goals since the big picture sometimes seems out of reach!

So my immediate goal is to lose 10 kilos (22lbs) pounds by Christmas. The date isn't important it just that I know based on past experience losing 10 kilos is an easier, reachable goal than thinking 73 lbs! I do intend to take a break during the holidays, maintain weight loss & begin again in Jan.

One day at a time, one small goal at a time.

My Program:
No specific program, I decided I may switch diet types every few weeks just to spice it up because I find I tend to quit when I get bored.

In past I've lost weight with a metabolism diet my endocrinologist gave me, but last year I was also able to lose weight (8kilos in 3-4mo) my own diet-just cutting down on some carbs, lots of fruit & oh yeah Ice cream. It's my one weakness if you want to call it that-but I was able to lose weight despite having some daily. It was with my move & the stress that I ended up quitting at the time.

Personal Information:
My name is Artemis, I was born in Greece, but grew up in the US (NY), and 13 years ago moved back to Greece. It was great coming back to my roots, but after 30+ years in the US, it is an adjustment.

    Thank you for visiting my page. It's nice to see you back on Spark.
    I was going to come to Greece this year, but it will have to wait till next year now as i want to wait till my son graduates from Uni next June. Maybe we can catch up somewhere along the road. I had a great weekend and went to a Writer's Festival which i enjoyed. I am just about to finalise my retirement so it is a little scary to think that i have to make a decision about the rest of my life. Still, I am taking one day at a time.
    hope you had a great summer. We have Spring now and it is nice time of year. Take care and keep in touch. emoticon emoticon

    "Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
