My Progress and Goals for 2010

Sunday, May 02, 2010

I last blogged on May 1, 2009 so I thought I'd do a yearly update. I can finally say I lost weight with Sparkpeople. I have lost 12 pounds and I am happy with that. It may not be much for a years work but it is something.

I did the Walk Now for Autism Speaks event in St Petersburg on May 1, 2010 and feel that sense of accomplishment. I raised $252 and my team raised $702. There's a picture out there somewhere that I may post later. And I am proud to say we wore our SparkPeople shirts!

In the next year I am: hoping to drop another 30 pounds by December, get in more exercise, and maybe, just maybe, tan my white legs by wearing shorts.

(no promises on that last one though) :-D

Time to Start Over

Friday, May 01, 2009

This has not been the easiest of tasks for me. I guess a lifestyle change never is. I have been binging alot on the sweets which is not good for a normal person let alone a diabetic. My sugars are high as is my weight (my highest weight ever in my life) and my exercise that I thought was good apparently just isn't good enough.

So I have decided to step back, re-evaluate and start again. My ticker is reset but I am keeping my old start date of June 2008. It is, after all, when I began this journey.

So I am hoping, praying and starting with a renewed determination to get healthier and happier with the help of all of you and Sparkpeople too!

    All we can do is take it one bite, one day, one pound at a time. Refocusing is good-- I am trying to revamp my program.. little bit at a time! Hang in there!

    Good for you Shellie! The important thing is - YOu stopped the bleeding. You recognized that your diet was not healthy and are making a change. Bravo!!! DO you know how many people go through life in denial? I am diabetic as well and today my doctor told me I can take my Metformin once a day instead of twice. He thinks that the weight loss will allow me to say "good-bye" to Diabetes. Just keep that goal in mind- No more stupid Diabetes!!! good luck to you and always know that you can email me anytime, nothing is too silly!

Another day.....................

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

I have had some of the worst days lately. My eating has been way over in calories but too low in proteins. I have no idea how that happens. I may just have to start using the nutrition tracker to plan meals rather than just record what I've eaten.

I have noticed that I have been walking more now and exercise is even getting easier as a whole. My weight went up my measurement stayed the same except hips, which went up. I need to refocus while I'm on vacation. Set aside time to reflect on life,etc..

When I get back refreshed and renewed I'll be twice as ready to keep this journey up!

I feel a change coming on!

Saturday, January 31, 2009

I have just successfully helped to plan a walking meet for the St. Petersburg Sparkers Team. This is big for me as I really have a tough time being the outgoing type. I have been battling depression for a long time and basically became very antisocial. But somehow (thank you SparkPeople.com) I found it in myself to do this. It also helped that a team leader (thank you Beaglelovero8) asked me to help revive the team spirit. Without the support of wonderful Sparkies I think I would probably have sat in my house for the rest of eternity and let the world go by without me. I am now excited to meet my fellow Sparkies on Valentines Day and go for a walk. They don't know how they have opened and repaired my heart. emoticon

Thank you all,
Shellie
