New to spark people. I have decided to be fit and fabulous by the age of fifty five- I am giving myself a litlle time to get there. I'm working out with a trainer so I won't hurt myself and avoiding the sugar.
Hi Laura, I'm just starting back on my journey and was doing really well with my walking, making sure that I didn't over do it by trying too much too fast yet here I sit with an ice pack on my knee as I type. I have a torn meniscus that rears it's ugly head every now and then. Hoping that it subsides soon and I can get back to walking. Meanwhile I have cut back a couple of hundred calories the last few days. ~ Shannon
I have decided that this time, it's "for life." I'm not doing this to get in shape for a wedding, a trip, a "boy" LOL ... just life! Just me! Just forever. Because I want as much of the rest of my life I have left to be on my terms, feeling at the top of my game. We all deserve that!
I have a pair of skinny jeans (that don't yet fit me) hanging where I can see them in my workout area. They are looking more and more possible.
If it was easy, everyone would be skinny.

May 21, 1961 :) Hope you are well on your way to getting started on your weight lost journey. I finally decided it was time to get fit again. I want to climb Mt. Whitney with my husband for our 35th wedding anniversary so I have 2 years to reach my goal and get in shape. We hiked to the top of it for his 30th birthday back in 1987.
I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strenghthens me.

Hi I am laura ...I have been on Spark people for years .. I did really well except for the INJURIES!!! I did too much too soon and my body could nit take it. I am trying to get in shape....slow, slow, and mostly with NO injuries. I love spark people.
You only have one life and the more baggage you have the shorter the trip!
GREAT THINGS ARE PERFORMED NOT BY STRENGTH BUT BY PERSERVERANCE
If i give up when i fall; i will never achieve success - the road to success is paved with all the bumps we have in the road...
