Time to put my health on the "to do" list!

I turned 40 in August 2008 and I was determined to do it in a better body than I had, not that it would take much.

I joined SP in January of 2008 and did great for a while. Life got in the way, or I let it get in the way. Weight came back on and it's time to recommit to a healthy lifestyle. I also have to remember to not judge my progress by the scale alone!!

I am very active in my church, has a great seasonal job that basically runs from September - January or February. I also work from home as a freelance writer and volunteer for an organization that supports foster and adoptive parents who are parenting traumatized children. I love to knit and am trying to find a life again.

Member Since: 1/23/2008

SparkPoints: 20,361

Fitness Minutes: 11,176

My Goals:
I got off program and gained a bit of weight back, so my goal is to get back into my size 8 jeans by 8-17-2012. I'm dealing with the hormonal peri-menopause issues, so it's going to be tougher.




My Program:
I am really just following the food pyramid and trying to make healthier choices. I made small changes like whole grain breads and pastas rather than white, egg substitute rather than eggs, etc.

Personal Information:
I'm a mom to 2 kids adopted from foster care.

I am active in my church as a shawl minister, attending bible study, book study, monthly video discussion group, working with the youth and various other things. My church family has gotten me through some very hard times - far more so than my biological family!

Other Information:
I love knitting, reading, baking (bad when you're trying to lose weight), Christian fiction novels, I like to cook for big groups but hate every day cooking.

Wow! you are doing so well on your goals. I just started (day 1!!). I am turning 40 this year and need to make a change. I don't want to feel like an old person so much ahead of my time. I also feel that God has tasks for us to do - a race to run right? So I better get ready for it!!!

How can you love people when all you want to do is nap.

You're story is encouraging.

Blessings!

Yes, you could say I have been busy. It was easy to forget about taking care of me, so I could take care of the family. Thank you so much for your support. I really appreciate it. If you were closer I would let you spoil my baby. WE do not have support from family, so I welcome anyone else that wants to hold the baby.
Things are going better this week. I have wedged out some time for me and I am starting to get back in to sparkpeople full time. It feels good to be back.

Thank you for your help.
