Thanks for visiting my Spark Page!

After many false starts, the weight is slowly coming off and I am so happy about that. I have accepted that it will take me about a year to lose all the weight I need to lose, but I am started and have completed the first quarter of that year!

I am exercising and tracking my food here at Spark People. I am so happy to report that a foot problem has healed and I will again be able to walk for exercise.

After many false starts, the weight is slowly coming off and I am so happy about that. I have accepted that it will take me about a year to lose all the weight I need to lose, but I am started and have completed the first quarter of that year!

I am exercising and tracking my food here at Spark People. I am so happy to report that a foot problem has healed and I will again be able to walk for exercise.

Walking and biking are my favorite exercises during the warm weather months and plan to go back to the gym and water aerobics class when the weather isn't so nice.

I am doing this. Quitting definitely won't get the weight off.


I really want to get in shape and be healthier.

1/16/15 I have lost 27 pounds so far and only one person has noticed it. This does not include the people who knew I was trying to lose weight. I am not discouraged, though. I can see the difference in my clothing and by summer, they will all notice the change.

2/9/16 Well, my plan didn't go the way I was hoping. Two bouts with a back injury resulted in physical therapy and many months that I could not exercise because of the pain. I have gained six pounds and am just now able to begin exercising slowly with rest days in between. It is frustrating, but I am trying to be patient. Today it felt wonderful to be able to walk outside in the fresh air.

I was never one who loved to exercise, but I am surprised how much better I felt when I did--and how much more sluggish I feel and how much more achy and stiff I feel when I can't exercise. I really am looking forward to feeling great again soon!

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”
-Arnold Bennett
