I have been on Sparkpeople for 5 years now. I gained back some of my weight and am anxious to get to my goal and maintain. My plan is short and simple: Track all food and exercise, exercise about 60 minutes a day, 5-6 days a week, and drink at least 8 cups of water daily. I have learned that those are the things that help me focus without my life becoming all about weight-loss or weight-control.

I am using the Sparkpeople nutrition guide - but not so much the menus - to watch what I eat. I do a lot of walking and enjoy using the Wii to get in my exercise.

Personal Information:
I am a 62-year-old wife and mother of 2 and grandmother of 3 plus one in heaven. I love to read, to walk, and just to enjoy the beauty of nature. I work mornings in the spring and summer but full-time when fall and winter hit as I work for a heating and cooling company.

Ruth,

I am praying for Sebastian right now! May God surround each of you with His healing love and heal Sebastian physically and in every way. I am praying that God fills you with His peace, as He works with each of you during this time. We never know what God is doing in our lives, but know that He is always at work with His perfect plan although we may not see or know exactly what the plan is. Please, keep us posted.

Love Ya!
Gail

Ruth,

Thanks so much for the goodie, the message, and especially for the prayers! This encouragement is a great thing - knowing that others have been where you are and that they managed to come through the challenging times to have success is very encouraging! I just wish that doing the right thing could be a consistent and easy thing to do!

I need to keep my priorities straight - my health before my work! Truly I can have control over this - I just need to give myself permission to do so! With my work, I just try to do it so perfectly - to never miss a beat no matter what the cost. However, the price of our health is just no acceptable. So, I will work hard to let go of this unrealistic perfection - and be good to myself this week!

Thanks, Ruth! You're a doll!

Gail
