Heading to Fifty being Fit!

Hello. My name is Cindy. I am rapidly approaching 50. (Just a few months to go.) I joined SP at the end of June in 2009. I decided when I joined that ultimately my goal was to head into my fifties being fit! I am within a few pounds of my goal weight, but more importantly, I am in better shape than I was when I was in my 20's!

Hello. My name is Cindy. I am rapidly approaching 50. (Just a few months to go.) I joined SP at the end of June in 2009. I decided when I joined that ultimately my goal was to head into my fifties being fit! I am within a few pounds of my goal weight, but more importantly, I am in better shape than I was when I was in my 20's!

When I started, I was a walker and I enjoyed walking. Soon, that wasn't enough so I started incorporating running into my walking routine. My walking has morphed into running. When I started running, I could make it about 1/4 mile, walk, then run again.

I have been successful using sparkpeople and still rely on it. Maintaining my weight will be an ongoing battle especially after the holidays each year. But each year, it seems a bit easier to take off those holiday pounds.

Weight loss is not a linear graph that goes straight down, but rather a line graph with it's highs and lows and fluctuations and eventually stabilizing at a point where you feel successful and satisfied.

A Poem of Hope
by Helena Fehr

I feel the arms of God around me,
as I lay on my bed at night.
Asleep, I feel the Angel's touch-
I'm surrounded and held tight.

I will tell you a true story that happen several years ago.
I had a dear friend, who was in a bad car accident.
she was in the Intensive Care Unit and I could not go to her.
I cried out to God for help!
I ask Him to give her a Hug and touch her body.
He gave me a Hug.
Yes! God gave me the best holy loving hug of my life.
I am a happy married wife of a great husband but I have never had that much love in a hug before.
If i had died that minute it would have been OK!
To be so loved it beyond any words. John 3:15-20

May the Lord wrap you in His love and bless you today! jenny

Hello! The sun is shinning here and the small garden is growing I have my first small little green tomato. God bless you! Love and prayers Jenny emoticon emoticon

This Bible passage has been such a blessing for me and I wanted to share it with you!

Isaiah 40 :28Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. K.J.V. Inpublic domain.

Dear Friend, Hope all is well with you and your family! So many hurting from the storms and floods! May you be blessed! Love and prayers Jenny

May the Lord wrap you in his tender care and keep you safe. I love this passage form the Bible: Proverbs 3:5-6

5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
