Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
My name is Ursula. I'm 43 years old, and involved in a lifelong battle with obesity. I'm young for my age - I love to stay busy and active. But I also love to eat! Thus, my weight is always a problem. I'm interested in making healthier choices, and a more active lifestyle to feel better, and look better. I'm not getting any younger, ya know?!
My goals are very simple. I want to learn to make healthier choices, and take the weight off. I set my goals 10 pounds at a time. More than that, and I get overwelmed. I want to live actively and maybe finally win this battle with my body.
Goal 1 - 199 lbs 6/4/10
Goal 2 - 189 lbs
Goal 3 - 179 lbs
Goal 4 - 169 lbs
Goal 5 - 159 lbs
Goal 6 - 156 lbs
I'm really going to work hard on my activity, and making healthy eating choices. I have much to overcome, and will have to do so, one bit at a time.
Cardio minimum 3 times a week.
Strength Training minimum 3 times a week
I am nearly single. I have two wonderful kids. My oldest is 21 and the youngest is 10. Of course, they are both brilliant and beautiful, and nearly perfect!
I have a great job. I've been blessed beyond measure.
I'm open to suggestions, and need all the help I can get.
I have two beautiful sisters who are my motivators, my confidants, and my accountability.

My dearest Ursula,
I know one day soon you will check back in with SparkPeople and I want this warm welcome to be waiting for you.
We started this journey over a year ago and we veered off the path getting lost in the weeds and chaos of life. I have been fighting to get back on the path and know that you are struggling with the same situation.
I am here for you now and always. If you need a cheerleader, I'll grab my pompoms. If you need a prayer warrior, I'll hit my knees. If you need a sister, I'll walk beside you. If you need a good, swift kick in the behind...well, I'm your girl!
When you find your way back to this pathway, I'll be here to join you. Together again! Three sisters, two states, one dream...let's get healthy!
Love you with all my heart,

Hey, lady! I heard you're going to get to spend time with my mom here soon. I'm jealous. Be sure to give my mom a big hug for me and tell her I miss her! And, while you're at it, don't be surprised if she hugs you right back and tells you that the hug was from me & that I miss you too. lol

Hey Baby Sister, take some time today for YOU. Its time! You've put everyone before yourself for so long. Be good to YOU today. How about a walk at the civic center? Whatever makes you feel good about yourself, just do it. You are SOOOOOOO worth it!!! Love you!

Hi Ursula! I hope your night was as productive as you had hoped for. I know today will be crazy for you. Tell Dad his card was mailed but not in time. Wish I could be there with you to take him out to dinner today. Enjoy your day with him. Love you, Little Sista!
