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 ...

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.

Proverbs 3:5: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."

How are you doing these days, Maria? I was just looking at my spark page once again and noticed again that you were one of my very first SP friends here on SP back in August 2011! You were so special to me and still are. I haven't seen you around in some time. I hope that you're doing ok in all ways. I've gained around 12-15# since my lowest weight here. Errrr emoticon It is quite frustrating, but like my motto says, I won't give up! Here's to us, that we will have an awesome, healthier, goal setting 2014! emoticon emoticon emoticon
