Healthier Me

I joined SP at 65 but I had a few birthdays so now I am 68 years old. I live in MS with my husband. I am originally from Arizona and get homesick often even though there are things I love here too. I have trouble staying with a program and I am hoping SP will be the support that will help me reach my goals to become more healthy and happier.

March 14, 2009. Yeah!! My first time to get over 10,000 steps in a day. I got some at work , some at Walmart and 6222 of them in 55 mins ...

March 14, 2009. Yeah!! My first time to get over 10,000 steps in a day. I got some at work , some at Walmart and 6222 of them in 55 mins on the treadmill. Maybe not an every day happening but a goal to add.

On Sept 28, 2009 my husband had a confortation with a tree and pretty much lost the arguement. He broke his back, 8 ribs and punctured a lung. He is recovering but it will be a long haul. So my SP plan has changed but I still will check in as time permits.

Half of 2013 is gone and I have some work to do. My daughter and SIL are taking a cruise as her retirement gift to herself and I am blessed to be treated for my 70th birthday present to get to go too. I will treat my hubby (his 65th). All is planned for March of 2014 so I only have a few months to get in the best possible shape (pun intended) I can before then. Let it be. :)

June 1st is just 2 days away and I am getting a few days of a head start on getting back to SP and making my 70s be more enjoyable. I am grateful I still have my job at the Herb shop and the opportunity to have healthy choices available. July will be a VERY busy month for us with one week with MS grandsons visiting Florida and one week of AZ grands and Greats visiting us in MS. I plan on it all paying off and my heart being full and my pants being loose. :)

Give yourself a healthy weight pep talk today:

Whenever I sit down to eat, I am determined to achieve my goal. By never giving in and eating right, I will reach my healthy weight.

I really enjoy eating less, whether in a restaurant or at home. I donít have to finish the food in front of me anymore. I eat what I should and never one bite more.

When there is less food on my plate, there is less food on my fork. By ordering less when I eat out and giving myself small portions at home, it keeps me aware of staying with my goal each day. Less on my plate means less on my waist.

I will not allow anyone to influence, tempt, or discourage me in any negative way. Reaching my goal is up to me. No one has the right to control my success.

I am losing weight for my own reasons; for my life, my future, my personal health. No one will tempt me to take one more bit than I should. I am strong. I can reaching my goal.

A lot of food in front of me is no longer a problem. I just say no to the food and yes to my success.

I enjoy sitting down to eat because it gives me time to conquer my past and create a more active, self-confident, and healthier future.

I donít need someone else to remind me of my goal or to keep me from eating something I shouldnít. Iím responsible for myself and my body. No one can do it for me.

Itís easy for me to control my weight and appetite now. I enjoy smaller portions and smaller bites. I eat slower and am more relaxed in every way.

I am healthier.

Mealtime is achievement time for me."

For Christmas

May you have joy
in the mad rush
of preparation;

May you know peace
in the tiny margins
of time around
the busy days;

May you have star-shine
in clear night skies
for looking at;

May you have silence
now and then;

and, above all Ė

beyond all else Ė

May you have love
to give
and to receive.

(Elizabeth Searle Lamb)

Merry Christmas!
