January 23, 2007 I decided to change my life and joined Spark People. Yesterday was my one year anniversary and I cannot believe the time just flew by.

I was able to drop fifty four pounds in that year, I eat better than I used to and I know my calorie count in everything I eat which is really something new for me. I exercise to the best of my ability (as I am currently preparing for back surgery but look forward to the time when I can get back to exercising daily), and I drink my water!!!

These things have all contributed to my successes this past year but, having friends to help me along the way has really been the key for me. I have always eaten the right things (just too much of them and I was never aware of the calorie count), but having friends that are working just as hard at trying to reach their goals as I am and communicating with them on a daily basis is the thing I look forward to, EVERY DAY!!!!

I could be having a bad day, not feeling too good, feeling lazy, pain, depressed or just feeling alone in this and then I post and WOW! It is my saving grace! Someone always picks me up and many times I have found that someone is feeling a lot worse than I am and I can pick them up instead. That turns my whold day around and puts me back on track. Having Spark friends is my favorite part of this site.

Enjoying the tools SP has to offer has taught me a lot about the way our bodies work and I am grateful that no matter how old we get, it still works the same.

I am looking forward to another successful year with SP and then another and another and another............

Thirty eight more pounds to go to reach my calculated goal, but I may even get to feeling "just right" before then. Who knows? All I do know is that losing weight is no longer an impossible feat, I am proving that to myself everyday. Staying healthy is now the challenge at hand for me. I know I can do that too........




Member Since: 1/23/2007

My Goals:
Drink PLENTY of water!
Eat PLENTY of fresh fruits and vegetables!
Don't overlook my need for fiber!
EXCERCISE DAILY!!!
Go easy on the high calorie foods.
I want to be able to have a "bit" of everything. In sensable portions, so that I do not feel deprived. Especially because I do not want to be on a diet anymore! Instead, from now on I want to enjoy a healthy LIFESTYLE....


My Program:
Tracking everything is still vital to me. I have seen what "KNOWING" the daily numbers can do so it is still the first thing I do in the morning and the last thing I do at night!
I try to stay on the low side of my calorie allowance, the high side of my fittness workouts and everyday I try to drink more water than I did the day before.
I am also enjoying the motivation I receive from my spark friends. I look forward to hearing from them everyday and I am always happy to make new ones.



Personal Information:
I am from California. Married to the most awesome husband I could have ever dreamed of, for the past 22 years. I am the mother of three grown children. Two sons and a daughter. They are the light of my life. I am grandmother to 3 boys. One from each child. Ages, 19, 10 and 3. And thanks to Spark People, I think I have figured out a way to enjoy a longer, healthier and active life with everyone I love!


Other Information:
Gardening,Cooking, Bird Watching, Sketching, Everything related to Scottie Dogs, Friends and Music are some of my passions.
