(Another) Re-Start

My black magic number is 40. Several times I have lost 40 lbs., and that seems to somehow trigger me to go back to my old habits. Maybe because I feel overconfident. Maybe because people have started to notice and I let my guard down. In this case it was a huge family crisis, but the tailspin continued. And so here we go! Again.

SparkPoints: 17,247

Fitness Minutes: 7,431

My Goals:
To build a healthy eating and exercise lifestyle that:
1) Is do-able
2) Is realistic
3) Is enjoyable
4) Has "buddies" to help
and
5) Is permanent

My Program:
1. Drink my water.
2. Exercise minimum of 30 minutes per day, 5 days a week, even if in two separate sessions.
3. Track my food intake.
4. SPARK!

Personal Information:
The "black magic" number for me is 40. I have lost 40 lbs. several times in the last 10 years, and it seems that is the turn-around-and- go backwards point for some reason. I did this on Spark. Lost 40 lbs, then hit a huge family crisis, and gave up (again). So I will consider my REAL starting point at my 40-lb. mark...only then will I "believe"!

Other Information:
I have in recent years started crafting...mostly crafts with nursing home residents, and crafting for community needs...stuffed bears, rag dolls, eyeglass cases for the poor...and things like natural bird feeders for local children's museum. Crafting is most fun when it's for others.

Oh Susana, how lovely to know your mom is around. May the Lord bless her with a Long and healthy life and many many more great-grands and great-great-grands. It is such a fulfilling experience to see life come full circle and your grandchildren becoming grandparents themselves.

Incidentally my DH too is 92, in fact he turns 93 i=on August 12th. He is pretty agile, moves comfortably but has been diagnosed with early stages of dementia, in November and there have been changes, where he sleeps a lot, gets confused often and on bad days needs help on everything. But then growing old is not for sissies right dear girl.

Give your mom a hug from me

Hugs, prayers and blessings
Mani

My dearest Susana,

Thank you for your visiting and reading my blog. And the wonderful little story of yours that you shared. I saw your mom's picture and she could be like my sister across the pondů with all the grands , great grands and great-great-grands. Is she still alive.

There's been a lot of that kind of thing going around. I think the worst part is when it just seems to hang in there forever and you wake up every day still half sick. Hope it's gone soon!

There's a lady today in the popular blogs who says she starts backsliding every time she loses 40 pounds. Now where have I heard that before?
