I am, if nothing else, persistent. I have been on Spark People since June 2010 and am still plodding along on my journey to a healthier lifestyle. I am an emotional eater, and have a tendency to procrastinate, which makes establishing good habits a challenge. However I take this journey one step at a time, one day at a time, and eventually, I will reach my goals.

And by perseverance I will reach my goals.

Member Since: 6/25/2010

Fitness Minutes: 52,882

My Goals:
2017 Summer 5% Challenge

Exercise Commitment: I will continue to go to the pool on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays. And with summer and warmer weather I will be out in my garden.

Nutrition: I plan to use the Mayo clinic diet program and the Spark People Nutrition Tracker with the goal of staying within my calorie range. I am going back to basics - drinking water ONLY and no sugared drinks, tracking food, menu planning and portion control - all the things I know I ought to do but have been letting slip.

Motivation: 10 reasons I want to lose weight.
I want to:
1. walk without pain
2. prepare for future surgery (hip replacement)
3. be able to go for long walks along the beach without having to stop and rest all the time
4. have my clothes fit better so I look/feel better
5. decrease my risk of diabetes and/or heart disease
6. go up and down stairs without using the chair lift
7. get ready for my Hawaii cruise in September
8. fit

My Program:
-To take this journey one step at a time, one day at a time, and not to beat myself up if I am not perfect. I want to focus on progress and attainable goals.

Personal Information:
I am:
-63 years young
-live in Western Canada
-have 2 furry kids (cats)
-a Christian
-a hummer - (that way I don't have to remember all the words to a song - just the melody); some people find it annoying, but I come from a family of hummers so its genetic

    doesn’t come from
    what you CAN do.

    ** It comes from **
    the things you once thought
    You COULDN’T.

    Thanks so much for your kind caring words and lovely goodie. It meant so much to me. You do understand I know. It is difficult to keep going on each day without him.....but, I am a
    positive thinker and he would want me to be happy. So I know I try each day to be stronger and stay active. Being busy and being around those who understand with similar situations does help me. I am blessed and grateful for the memories and will always cherish the Time we had together. Thanks again for being so special.
    I do hope your life is going well and your health and activity is all good for you. Have a
    healthy March and stay warm and well. God bless. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    because of one setback
    is like slashing your
    other three tires
    because you got one flat.
