The recent (April 22) death of my husband has left me feeling sad and lifeless, but as I continue to wake up every day and reality sets in I know I have to keep moving foreward. I have reached my high weight of 225 again; this is where I started in '09. Part of me feels like it doesn't matter anymore, but the reality s that it DOES matter...a lot! I just have to figure out how to take care of my by myself; cook for me (not the junk food habit I have fallen in to) and make healthy choices for me. This proves to be harder than it sounds sometimes, but the one thing I know is this; SparkPeople has everything I need and I need to rededicate myself.
I have re-set my pages, starting over, on this site as in my life; finding a new begining.

Goals for the next 3 months are as follows:

1.. Follow training program to build strength, stamina and endurance

2. eat nutritious meals fruits and vegetables

3. Track work-outs and nutrition.

4. Measure portions

5. Weigh NO MORE than twice a week

Looking foreward to success

Personal Information:
MY NAME IS EVELYN AND I LIVE IN THE MOUNTAINS OF NORTH CAROLINA. I'M A NURSE CASE MANAGER; PRIMARILY WITH BRAIN INJURY (BOTH TRAUMATIC AND NON TRAUMATIC). I REALLY LOVE MY JOB.

I HAVE ONE SON AND 3 GRANDCHILDREN. THEY MEAN THE WORLD TO ME!
I WANT TO BE AROUND TO PLAY WITH THEM, TEACH THEM AND LEARN FROM THEM! I WANT TO PASS ON A LEGACY OF HEALTHY AND FUN!

I'VE SPENT A LIFETIME OF UNHEALTHY HABITS AND I'M WORKING HARD TO TURN THAT AROUND. IT'S ALWAYS BEEN A STRUGGLE, BUT AFTER I BECAME SERIOUS ABOUT REACHING MY GOALS, AND IMPLEMENTING A PLAN FOR REACHING THEM IT'S BECOME MORE LIKE SECOND NATURE, A HABIT. FINALLY IN MY LIFE I HAVE DEVELOPED MORE HEALTHY HABITS AND I'M ENJOYING MY LIFE. I'M ABLE TO DO THINGS THAT I COULD ONLY DREAM ABOUT, AND I'M JUST GETTING STARTED! THERE IS SO MUCH MORE I PLAN TO DO. I AM SUCCEEDING! AND VERY HAPPY!

    Hmmm...don't know why my page would be doing that. It's set to allow comments. Mystery! Anyway~ probably can't do lunch~ my stepson is flying in and will be with us all week plus my son lives in town, need to do family stuff. But I could meet you for a work out at Rush. Never been there but I'll google it.

    I'm getting my work-outs in no matter what. That is a promise I've made to myself from now on. There is always some reason to "skip it" esp. travel and no way am I allowing that to occcur this time.

    Do you work all day and work out in the mornings or evenings?

    ?? Never heard of writing with invisible ink?? We know Hendersonville Rd. very well! My son lives over by the VA Hospital but we rent a place over near the Biltmore while we're there. Going to be there for the week before Thanksgiving and then leaving Wed. (day before Thanksgiving) to go down to Charlotte (well really Matthews) for the long week-end. More family down there! Let's keep in touch about connecting. emoticon

    Thank you so much for the goodie gift!! You made my day. Hope you have a wonderful week. PS I read your Page, and see you're in the NC mtns. My son has been in Asheville for about 8 years. We've been back there to visit many times~ beautiful area. We're driving back there again next month.

    My brother had colon cancer. He was lucky and it hadn't spread outside of the colon. I was screened as a result (I was only 41 then) and it turns out that I had a pre-cancerous polyp. It was removed and I've never had another one. I was so glad that I had the screening. It is one cancer that is totally preventable so worth the test. I always plan where I'm going to eat afterwards. It gets me through it. emoticon
