I am in my seventh year of living a healthy life style!!
I celebrated my fifth year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2017. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I started off with walking. If you would have told me three years ago that I would have run a 5k, I would have never believed it!

As of today, I have run 5ks, 10k's, 3 ten milers, and 5 Half Marathons! Funny how fast one's perspective can change...even for us middle-aged people!

Even though I have conquered all of the above, I am faced with an even bigger "challenge". I lost my 26 year old son two years ago to Anorexia Nervosa. I am still in the grieving process and it is very difficult. I need to stay healthy, but, it is not the first thing on my mind. And, since he passed away from counting calories, weighing himself on the scale 3 times per day, and eating halves of everything - it has been a real mental challenge for me.

My favorite quotes...

All you can change is yourself, but sometimes that changes everything! Gary W. Goldstein

Goals are dreams with deadlines. ---Diana Scharf Hunt

Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live. - Jim Rohn

What you are doing is not nearly as important as how you feel about what you are doing. - Unknown

There'll be two dates on your tombstone. And all your friends will read 'em. But all that's gonna matter is that little dash between 'em. - Kevin Welch

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. Walt Disney

Accomplishment only takes place when you actively participate with your intentions. Therefore, fully commit to participate in the dreams of your choice and do so against all the risks confronting you. Guru Singh

    thank you for the spark goodie! we try to find some time each day for that "holiday feeling" even though we are working 7 days a week at this time of year, with the occasional day off - but it is not hard to feel like it is a holiday when the beach is nearby!

    It was icy here too. Somewhere showed the ocean coming over a wall the day of the snow storm.

    The neighbor used his snow blower and did our sidewalk and walkway up to the front porch. It has been cold, below freezing, and windy. I stayed inside and let my husband do the walk around to the side of the house.

    The roads were drifting tonight on the way to/from the church building. Everyone made it there safely though, thank God! Wind gusts today were up to 50 mph. Nearly everyone had their sidewalks shoveled off yesterday evening and only places that were empty still had snow on the sidewalks. I looked on Facebook and we had a snow storm in 2014 on the 15th of March.

    I hope that you weren't near enough to feel the effects of that tornado.

    The neighbor's forsythia is in bloom, but the wind is so cold here. Tomorrow is to be another blustery day. There is a two-hour delay for schools. They had a 2-hour delay yesterday morning too.
