The Time to Become Healthier is NOW!

Now is the time for me to get healthier and be the best me I can be! I am 54 years old, married with one daughter.

February, 2014 ~

It's time to get serious and re-focus!

I have gained some of the weight I lost, back.

I am in the process of re-evaluating what I need to do to move forward. I am changing some of my goals. Focusing on the basics. Cutting out some of the clutter.

I will continue to use the SparkPeople's website ...

February, 2014 ~

It's time to get serious and re-focus!

I have gained some of the weight I lost, back.

I am in the process of re-evaluating what I need to do to move forward. I am changing some of my goals. Focusing on the basics. Cutting out some of the clutter.

I will continue to use the SparkPeople's website in ways that have been helpful to me in the past. I will use the Nutrition Tracker and the Fitness Tracker.
I will continue to support my fellow Sparkers by reading your blogs and cheering you on. I appreciate all of your kind support, too!

Let's all start the New Year with realistic and do-able goals...one step at a time.

I had reached my SparkPeople weight loss goal of 49 pounds lost on May 21, 2011.

I want to be healthy & happy for the rest of my life.

I have been overweight most of my life.

I also have been a yo-yo dieter.

I enjoy walking and yoga.

A goal of mine is to find balance and moderation in ALL areas of my life.

My name is Maria & I live in Minnesota.

I worked for over 30 years in the accounting & banking fields...I currently work part-time as a Library Assistant.
I also work on our farm where we raise several types of animals & grow vegetables & wine grapes for local consumers.

We have both come a long way since joining SP 4 years ago! Who would have thought I would enter a photo contest, let alone keep off 65 of my 69 pounds lost! I am glad we got to meet here at SP! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Oh, I forgot to mention...we are supposed to be 96 today...heat index will be in the 100's! Not dealing with this heat at all this year! But, slowly I am getting used to it and the sweat! emoticon

Thanks for adding me back.
I loved reading about you mom writing letters, my Aunts still write letters to me for every holiday and new season. It's something I always keep and love to receive from them :)

Hi Maria! Hubby just told me yesterday that the Minnesota Twins have their spring training in Ft. Myers! And we're going to a game in March when my daughter & her friend arrive for a visit! Of course, when I found out...I thought of you!

Thanks for the workout clothes! I use 'em plenty! emoticon
