My Goals:
I have exercise pretty well incorporated in my life and seeing weight loss as I track my food and choose healthier whole food choices and not eating out as much. Am also finding I crave healthy foods when traveling.
Spark Challenges have helped me see weight loss and hold me accountable.

My Program:
Control size of portions and think before eating. Keep track of what I eat.
Had to back off the 60 minutes of exercise each morning. Knees started rebelling. Hoping to increase my 30 - 40 minutes gradually and see how it goes. When weather permits walking 30 minutes at lunch time.

Personal Information:
Hi I'm 55 and have been happily married for 35 years. I'm exploring new areas of this program and thrilled with al the education I'm receiving. I have one son who's married and a 29 year old daughter who now lives in Florida and is a teacher. I work full-time and am a Marketing Director and Agent at an insurance agency. At this stage of life I am amazed at where God is taking me. Places I've never dreamed of.

Other Information:
Seems like my career is becoming more challenging instead of slowing down. I like the variation and challenges but trying to learn how to juggle everything with caring for mother-in-law, being a wife, career, making exercise and loosing weight a priority, spending time with my adult children, traveling with our best friends, working in the yard etc. etc. Seems like I am busy and have little time for FUN and quiet time for myself.

Thanks so much for the kind words on my blog, it truly means a lot! emoticon Just remember gaining 10 pounds back is better than 20, 30, etc. You can absolutely turn it around right now. One step, one meal at a time. You can do it! :D
