Life Changes & My New Beginning

I joined Sparkpeople a few years ago, tracked my food for awhile, but didn't do what was really necessary to lose weight & get healthier. Rather than beat myself up for that, I'm choosing to come back here to start anew.

My life has recently changed, since I was given the shocking news that I have a meningioma. For now, it's wait & watch. I have a great attitude & am very optimistic that everything will be okay, no matter what.

Through this, I'm gaining more clarity ...

My life has recently changed, since I was given the shocking news that I have a meningioma. For now, it's wait & watch. I have a great attitude & am very optimistic that everything will be okay, no matter what.

Through this, I'm gaining more clarity each day, and I am so grateful for everything that I've been given. This time, I'm determined to lose the weight, so that I can indeed live my life to it's fullest.

My Goals:
One of my goals is to lose weight to become healthier. For me, it's not just about being able to fit into cute clothes (although that will be nice!)

My Program:
I'm going to try to make breakfast and lunch my larger meals of the day, and have a smaller dinner and a mid-afternoon snack. I plan on exercising at least 3 days a week (to start) for at least 30 minutes, and will increase both the number of days per week & the time spent, as I get stronger.

Personal Information:
Hi, I'm Robin, and I live in Connecticut. I have a wonderful husband, who is very supportive of my efforts, but he doesn't need to lose weight, which can make dinnertime a little challenging. I love to garden, read and cook.

Other Information:
"I can do anything!"

Thank you for commenting on my blog. That house fire story is scary. My Dad once set a chair on fire in our living room. Mom and I wondered why he kept coming to the kitchen for a glass of water. Nobody is THAT thirsty. Finally he had to admit what he did when he was forced to move the chair into the backyard.
