I am a 69 year old, obese, wife, mother, and grandmother, sister & aunt from Pennsylvania. I have been eating smarter. Have lost a significant amount of weight. But for the last year, sadly, not losing, in fact gained some! So, I am committing to get back to healthier eating, moving more, and living healthier! I need motivation to exercise, make myself go out. I am striving to sleep 6 hours most nights, eat cleaner, smarter, and dump the negative mental messages. I need to avoid junk..both in my food choices and life! Avoiding Stress and anxiety is a battle. But, I CAN ~ I WILL ~ and I WON'T QUIT!

My Goals:
To eat smarter.
Break the dessert habit.
be able to walk easier, and for a longer distance.
To be comfortable exercising.
Or, comfortable going OUT .
And every day move more, smile, and learn something, be able to count at least one blessing to be thankful for, and to sleep at least 5 hrs. a night.

My Program:
Think more mindless eating!
But DO NOT Think about what people say, think, and do when they look at me.
Move some everyday!
Stay Motivated!
Keep Blood Glucose low and level.
Lights out by 11 p.m., shut off the thought train, and SLEEP!
