I'm in my late 40's and need to lose about 38 pounds. I have a chronic pain problem that makes losing weight difficult. But, it's very important to me to get fit because I want to be around to enjoy my family for a long time. I would like to live to be very old, but only if I'm healthy enough to enjoy it. I live on a farm/ranch and enjoy riding horses, looking after cattle, planting flowers, and spending time with my wonderful husband and family.

Member Since: 6/15/2010

Fitness Minutes: 6,400

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 38 pounds by September 1st. We are going on a trip and I would like to look good and feel better. Most important, I want to feel good physically, and feel good about myself mentally.

My Program:
I am reading Geneen Roth's books and trying to learn how to manage my emotional eating. I'm not dieting, but trying to learn to feed my body the things it really needs and not just eat to stuff my feelings down or comfort myself in times of stress. I am currently doing Zumba twice a day, 6 days per week. I would eventually like to become a certified Zumba instructor and be able to do what I love while reaching out to others who are struggling.

Personal Information:
I'm 47 years old and live in the country. There is a very small town about 5 miles from my home. For the most part, I am pretty content to just do things around the farm. I'm not as social as I would like to be, but growing up 50 miles from the nearest town and not even having a phone until I was a teenager makes it difficult for me to be comfortable around people.

Other Information:
"Just because it is, doesn't mean it should be. Be an instrument of positive change."
"Life is not a success only journey, but you can't change what you don't acknowledge."
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."
"Live well, love much, laugh often."

    Hello and emoticon to SparkPeople!! This has been one of the best places I've ever been for weight loss, goal setting and support. The people on the site are absolutely FANTASTIC! You won't find anywhere else as positive and supportive.

    My advice to you -

    1. Use the nutrition tracker! It is an invaluable tool to you!
    2. Use your blog to share your day, vent frustrations, ask for advice or just post "fun stuff"! It's a great way to interact with other Sparkers!
    3. Get involved with message boards and teams! My favorite SparkTeam is (((( Sending SKINNY Vibes! ))))
    4. Don't be too hard on yourself! If you slip up or have a bad day, remember that it's not about being perfect, it's about learning to live a new LIFE!
