My Lifestyle is great.


Monday, September 19, 2011

These past couple of weeks Don and I have been really busy in fact we went to the County Fair 3 times this last week. Our granddaughter Morgan showed her calf on Saturday and we were there to see most of her activities. As I was walking around the fair grounds I was noticing people. Everybody was eating. Some of them shouldn't have been eating especially all that greasy food. I laughed to myself because I was complaining to myself these people should not be eating all those calories. I said to myself Marilyn it must be your new lifestyle or it wouldn't bother you that so many heavier people are eating all those calories. I was good. -The only thing I did bad was have two ice cream nutty bars. But I trully believe I have change with my new lifestyle. Don is my husband of 40 years and we are both on this lifestyle together. We said this was the first year we never had any Tom Thumb Donuts or Funnel Cakes. We are definitely loving our new lifestyle. Don is also watching my weight and his weight. He is a good husband and it is fun making these changes together. A lot of time we will discuss what we think we should be eating when we are away from home. I was kind of proud to be buying a bottle of water instead of pepsi. I can do this but I also need your support which I am very happy to have so many nice friends on Sparks People. Best wishes to everyone on their new lifestyle journey. We can do this. For me this is my number 1 job. I am retired so that helps alot. Next week Don will be combining Soybeans and our running for the fall is almost over. We should be home most of the time starting next week.
Hopefully I will see a lighter scale. I am at my lowest weight in a very long time. I am trying to hold on to that right now. Even that is a job. LOL

    When I used to go to the County Fair it was so much fun and eating unhealthy food seemed to be one of my main activities--LOL! Now, I would be like you looking at all the overweight people eating greasy food so Spark has really changed me into a health minded person. So glad your on our Team and looking forward to getting to know you. I added you as a friend as we can't have enough. Enjoy your day and keep up the great work!!

Hugs,

Jill

    Awesomeness!!! Congrats!! I know how it feels to avoid fair food too as I faced that this summer! Not always easy but so worth it in the long run.

I think it is wonderful to have your husband along with you on this journey to health who better to cheer you on ! emoticon
