I ran a 5k under 30 minutes the first time and was completely blown away that I could after not working out for months!!!
Were it not for my business and economic situation 2008 would have been stupendous.
I quit smoking april 1st and also gave up pepsi(the straight stuff not diet) and sugar. I now use splenda and drink diet green tea.
I have lost approximately 25 lbs and have found my endurance has increased
I have managed, with his help, to get the excess weight off of the dog making him healthier and happier.
I can now shovel without pain or need for rest, as well as cut the grass, carry in groceries and other normal activities.
I have changed my cholesterol around and am finally off of the pills that had been prescribed.
Enough to make anyone happy? Yes but am looking forward to strength training and additional functional fitness in the coming year. I know I will probably never be good with food, fruits, veggies etc but hopefully I with exercise will lose more weight and become healthier overall.
what was great for me in 2008 I was very happy to find sparkpeople and to lost all
the weight that I need to loose I am healthy and strong and I will be motivate
other people,I am very happy,
Living a Healthy and Active Life style, Reach my Goal and very Happy with my Body,my eating habits,Fresh Fruits, Lot's of Green vegetables,drink 8 To 10 glasses of water daily.
What was GREAT in 2008 was the fact that I found SPARK PEOPLE and a NEW HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Words are powerful. What you speak about you can bring about.
Learn to say "NO"! Your "yes" is valuable and should not be automatic. Instead reserve it for the things that are most important to you.

I took a huge step. I am now running a small community theater in Lakewood.
My boyfriend broke up with me, but not everything can be good.

Great things that happened in 2008 were:
1. my finally getting involved with Spark People
2. making lots of new friends. I'm so grateful for all the support.
3. netting a weight loss & not gain this year.
4. making progress with my arm & hand. It's not perfect, but the dance is not over yet.
I'm ready to journey into 2009 & see where it takes all of us.

My accomplishments for 2008 were (1) joining SparkPeople and beginning to lose weight, (2) getting contracts for two mystery books, (3) I threw away the goodies I brought home with me from our Christmas celebration. (That was really hard.) In 2009 I'm going to meet my goal.
Finding SparkPeople and making new friends! Being healthy; having my husband's health improve greatly!

It just makes good sense to be satisfied and at peace with yourself and others, and to enjoy life now.
I think addressing some of my medical problems and being granted Social Security Disability. I have not been able to work for over two years and finally, gave in to apply. I am thankful that I did and was approved fairly quickly. Now I no longer have to worry about whether or not I can actually go back to work and trying to make it through a day. After working over 30 years I am just not healthy to do it anymore.
