You have to eat to lose weight...what a concept!

I saw SparkPeople.com mentioned on another site. Not much was said about it, just that this person had joined for weight loss. I decided to take a look and I am so glad that I did.

I joined SparkPeople January 3, 2008. I have never actually been on a diet or tried to exercise. I had turned into a couch potato years ago and had no stamina at all. I would think about losing weight. My diet was to cut back on my foods and walk for about 5 minutes. This would last 1 or 2 days ...

I would think about losing weight. My diet was to cut back on my foods and walk for about 5 minutes. This would last 1 or 2 days tops before I would give up.

I still find it hard to believe that I am still here on May 31, 2008! I attribute my success to all the wonderful friends I have found here on SparkPeople. I am learning so much, gaining my health back, losing weight and making close friends.

January 24, 2009

Well, I fell back into old habits and all of the 40 pounds that I had lost back. I am having to relearn all the GOOD habits for a healthy life, but I WILL do it.

I am back again as of March 9, 2012...and I feel strong this time.

My Goals:
To get healthy.

To lose weight.

To have more energy.


My Program:
After 53 years, I figured it is time I learned what exactly is a healthy diet. I stopped smoking June 13, 2005 and I want to be healthy. I am trying to eat/drink the right amount of water, right amount of calories, right amount of carbs, right amount of fat, right amount of protein, and the right amount of fiber. I have also slowly began to move instead of sit or lay down all the time. I am taking baby steps and trying to increase weekly.

Well...I am 55 now and having to relearn everything I learned last year.....

Personal Information:
I live in Georgia

Married 37 years (will be 38 years on 06/30/10).

I have 2 adult children ( son and daughter) .

THE JELLY BEAN PRAYER

Red is for the blood he gave.
Green is for the grass he made.
Yellow is for the sun so bright.
Orange is for the edge of night.
Black is for the sins we made.
White is for the grace he gave.
Purple is for the hour of sorrow.
Pink is for our new tomorrow.
A bag full of jelly beans colorful and sweet
is a prayer, a promise, a loved one’s treat.
May the joy of Christ’s Resurrection fill your heart and bless your life!
~Author Unknown


Have a super blessed Easter Sunday and may the Easter bunny take all the calories out of your treats leaving you only the healthiest ones!!!
