Have been a member for a while and have had the book for a couple of months. Started reading and was really focused for a while. And, then have just let things go. My excuse: I have been too busy. I am old now - 72 last Nov. - working parttime (30 hours a week) - have evening commitments 3 times a week. And, recently there have been additional activities at church that have taken time: our Spring Bazaar, our Grad Recognition Banquet, a funeral - and as the church secretary there are things I am responsible for. Sounds like a whiner!!
But, it is time to GET SERIOUS - if I am going to lose some of this weight. I know that when I eat better and exercise regularly I do feel so much better and have so much more energy and desire to do whatever God has planned for my day. And, I do not want to miss anything. Also, i have a daughter and her family here in Pendleton - 3 granddaughters, 16, 12 and 10 - and I do not spend enough time with them. More excuses!
Love this section of SparkPeople. Being able to read where others are is so encouraging - I don't feel like I am all alone and that others share the same struggles I have. And, being able to blog as I read thru the book.
So, that is my story!!
