I lacked the motivation in the past due to a back injury.
But now since I have joined SparkPeople, I have gained the motivation to set some goals for myself, and to reach them.

No more sitting around feeling sorry for myself.
No more pain meds that constantly make me drowsy.
No more excuses.

    Hi and welcome to Spark People. Thanks for the comment on my blog and yes, it's very important to me to feel good...as important as the weight that I lose. I'm learning so much about how to make my life better and healthier and I have grown a lot in the education that I am receiving. However long that it takes to reach the destination, I'm going to enjoy the journey.

    Hugs, Lonna

    thanks for your comment on my blog - it is important to me on this healthy lifestyle journey we uplift and support one another because it is an effort at times when you do not want to track, exercise or eat healthy - that is when I invoke the 90/10 rule ROFL

    Hope you are doing well!

    I am glad you enjoyed the Mt Shasta picture. It really was amazing and pictures don't do it justice. We came around a bend and there it was just looming above us... really beautiful. Central Oregon is beautiful as well. I see Mt Jefferson off my back deck. Every day is a treat. It never seems to look the same.
