the new beginning!!!

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Hi Everyone, this is my first ever blog so be patient with me. I called it new beginning because although i have tried other diets and failed this is the beginning for this diet and sparkpeople. I have 2 children and 2 grandchildren-the loves of my life. my grandchildren are ages 1 and 3 so I am sort of a new grandma have rheumatoid arthritis and back pain from 3 surgeries. I am a retired RN on disability. I am looking forward to meeting new people that have the same challenge as myself.All I can say is yeah to 2013!!!

I am no expert but if its possible, I would recommend that you set specific long term and short term goals. It really helped me to keep myself focused, accountable, and the upside is that I know how I am doing from time to time. Here's a link from SparkPeople that I found really helpful:

    And I think staying healthy is really the ultimate goal we're all aiming for. So take it nice and easy, and adopt healthier habits step by step. We can do this together! emoticon
