Hi! I am a 51-year old with a wonderful spouse. Both my spouse and I have our parents living in town for a couple of years now. The 20 years prior we were taking turns visiting our parents on the holidays: Florida, then Indiana, then Florida and so on. I want to lose some weight , stay healthy and active and be able to live (mindfully) in the moment.

1/15/2020 Start 5% challenge last Sat. Today, I got up at 7:30 I had completed SP tasks by 9 am. Collected 1700+ steps along the way.

I grabbed the following quote from a fellow SP member's page. I need to hear this message loud and strong.

“Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
~Mark Victor Hansen

... and this new piece of information -- especially for my 2020 Winter 5% Challenge Team members: I lost my 48-year old brother this past April (2019) to suicide. It still shocking and still hurts.
