Living in my own little world...

Time to update my intro. I'm pleased to say that I have been able to stick with the Atkins lifestyle and I am seeing results. That makes me happy. I don't think I've ever stuck with a "diet" or life change for this long ... except for the negative life change of eating too much & not exercising.

I now enjoy exercise, though I will admit - some days it's a push to get myself moving! But once I get into it, I love it.

Spark People has been a lifesaver. I've made some excellent friends here - those who make me laugh, those who build me up & those who help me pick up the pieces when I feel like I've failed. This is a great place to feel safe just being myself.

My Goals:
I want to lose over a hundred pounds. I celebrated the first 10 and will continue to celebrate each 10 as they melt away!

My Program:
I was strict low carb and that worked for a while. Now I'm trying to focus more on clean eating - keeping out processed food & sugar. Meats, veggies, whole grains and dairy.

Exercise!
Walking, elliptical, zumba, jillian michaels and aerobics. I wanted to become a runner but with the arthritis in my knee, the doctor has frowned on that! So I get in my power walks which still get me to sweat & make me feel great. Now I need to incorporate more strength training in to my routine.

Personal Information:
My name is Diane and I am 46 yrs old. I'm married with 2 children and we have a bunch of animals. I live in the Pocono mountains and love it here. Love the wild life, the weather and all the amazing places to hike. It is a beautiful area and I hope to get more active as more weight comes off.

Other Information:
My goal is to be the best "me" that I can be.

..........."Lets Take a Moment to Be Thankful""..........

For every accident that never happened,
For every grave illness that was not caught,
For every tornado that never formed.
And for every mean word withheld when we fought,

We can only see what's in front of us,
And can be thankful for what we've got,

But to really, truly embrace gratitude,
We have to also remember,
To always be thankful,
For every "never", "didn't", and "not".....

Yes, Marmalade Salon! Wasn't that a good name?! I thought if they ever did grow up to start a salon business, that name would have been very chic. They were only about six and ten years old, so some of their services were a little...um...uncomfortable (as in slathering hand cream all over my feet, wrapping them up in Saran wrap, then applying steaming towels--what a mess), but it was very sweet of them to try to "treat" me to their free pedicures!

Hope you're having a great day!

Merry Christmas Diane,

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
What shall I wish you for Christmas?
This season of joy and delight
The sound of carolers
On a starlit night?

What can I wish you for Christmas?
What is the thing you desire?
Is it health, wealth, or happiness
Or the warmth of a Christmas fire?
What can I wish you for Christmas?

To give you all the joy I am able?
A merry time with a good true friends
Around the fare of a Christmas table?
So much I would wish you for Christmas
Yet only my greeting I send
For all that I have to offer
Is the sincere heart of a friend...

With every good wish..
For the Christmas season
MERRY CHRISTMAS, MY FRIEND
