My quest for healthier aging... like a fine wine

Hello from Pennsylvania, and thanks for visiting my Spark page! Over the years I've been up the scales, and I've been down them. What I hadn't been able to do is maintain my weight loss once achieved.

Now a one-year SP veteran, I have made some exciting changes. I've worked off 25 pounds, and learned a thing or two about eating properly. Portion control was my first real challenge - couldn't believe how many unnecessary carbs and calories I was consuming on a daily basis! ...
Hello from Pennsylvania, and thanks for visiting my Spark page! Over the years I've been up the scales, and I've been down them. What I hadn't been able to do is maintain my weight loss once achieved.

Now a one-year SP veteran, I have made some exciting changes. I've worked off 25 pounds, and learned a thing or two about eating properly. Portion control was my first real challenge - couldn't believe how many unnecessary carbs and calories I was consuming on a daily basis! I've developed a new appreciation of seasonal foods, and am having fun incorporating them into my every-day meals.

Although my exercise routine slipped by the wayside over the summer months, I know that as autumn arrives I will become more structured. I know this because I've discovered that exercising regularly makes me feel good and makes my clothes fit better. It's something I deserve to do for Me.

Those are two simple but very important areas of my life that I never really got a grip on before finding the wonderful network that is SparkPeople.

The information on this site is mind boggling -- it's only a "click" away, and it's FREE! Yet as empowering as the information is, the true value of this site is the community of Sparkers who "live" here. I was so surprised to receive helpful advice and encouragement from total strangers! And what a thrill it is to offer support and extend the hand of friendship to other SP in need.

Traveling this road to good health is turning out to be quite an exciting journey. I wish you the best!

Thanks for the muffin Sharon. I'll have to triple my exercise to enjoy that. Another SP friend has pointed me in the direction of quinoa, so I got some the other day and am looking forward to trying that. Tonight it is a friends birthday and we are having nibbles and drinks, a moroccan platter which should be interesting. Too many temptations this time of the year....

Thanks for the comment. I happen to love that picture of Kolten and his Auntie Anne too. That was at her Marine Corps graduation and he was, and still is, fascinated with all of the stuff on her uniform. We are definitely Blessed!

Thanks for the blender! Come on over to the team and play the Christmas sing along. They made me a leader so I had to come up with something to lead. Never been a choir director before!

You're on! I was so glad to read your post, and that it motivated you to go out for ten minutes. How long did you actually walk once you finished?

I would love an accountability partner in this challenge.

My Dad is out of the hospital. He's thankfully doing well. I miss those days that a hug or kiss could make my children all better too.
