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. --

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 can’t (won’t) walk because it’s cold out, I need to move in another way.
I need to remember that if I don’t 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.

    Life is pretty good right now. I'm so happy not to be doing year end stuff right now. I just need to get on track with my healthy lifestyle again. Too many changes in my life over the last two years has really gotten me off track. 2017 will be the year for me to get 'er done.

    I hope all is good in your world. Keep on keeping on. Happy New Year emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm truly enjoying retirement. I have been busy canning this fall. Tomatos, salsa, apricots, cherries. Apple sauce and apple pie filling. I'm really enjoying it since I don't have to do it after working all day.
