Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek. --

My Goals:
So, I am going to shake things up a bit... Let's see if THIS will work. I need to become more accountable
1/22 227 BIG ICK
1 pound per week. This I am going to try and do. Eat better, Move more, it's a pound, I can DO a pound, but gee whiz, 52 pounds this year, sounds so much better than 1 pound this week...


My Program:
I need to remember what I am putting in my mouth .
I need to remember that if I canít (wonít) walk because itís cold out, I need to move in another way.
I need to remember that if I donít burn calories, I will not continue to lose weight.
I need to remember that whole foods are better than processed foods.
I need to remember that this is a journey to the rest of my life.



Personal Information:
I joined Sparks a couple of years ago, and every once in a while I would post what I ate. This spring (2010) I decided I would make myself more accountable. So, here I am, 50. WOW how cool. I am 50. Now the flip side of that is I often don't think I have changed the world, I think I thought I would. I didn't invent anything that changed the world, People don't say, Oh, there she goes, you know, she founded... Updated..
1/14 I am still here, I am now 53, and I am still on the journey, and I WILL NOT GIVE UP.
.


Other Information:
To wake up every day grateful for the things I already have. To remember that life is a gift not given, and that if I don't do something about my weight, I may not have a long life, which I need, and so does my family.

    Well... it wasn't the fastest one I've done and I was definitely in a lot of discomfort by the end, but considering where I am right now, I'm pleased as punch. This just means that I have a lot of room to improve over the course of the year.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and checking on me. I am really getting close to retiring, 43 days but who's counting? I am looking forward to it. It is still a bit scary since I've worked almost constantly since I was 13. You will know when the time is right and it will be a good thing. It is very hard to come to work each day and do the job when I'm truly ready to be gone from here.

    One of our first projects is to remodel our living room. There is a fireplace in it that we've never used in the 21 years we've lived there. Our TV has always set in it. We are finally going to take it out. We are also going to put new flooring in our kitchen. These projects should keep us busy for a while.

    We plan on doing quite a bit of camping and fishing so it won't be all work and no play.

    Have a wonderful spring and summer ahead.
