My favorite part of camping.

This is what I wish I was doing right now!

Frigid with the possibility of snow


Happy Face

Hi, my name is Liz and I am working my way back to a healthy way of life. Having been overweight all of my adult life, I have decided that the now or never time has come. I am striving to be a better me in all ways and have fun in the process.

I've been very lax in my eating and exercise habits fo awhile now. I've gained back about 40 of the 60 pounds I had lost. I've had some physical problems, back and other things that have made it difficult to get moving again. But I am ready to go back at it as much as my health will allow at this point. I've dusted off my food scale, found the dreaded weight scale and have gotten rid of most of the junk food in the house. I feel like I've reached a now or never point in my life. I want to be healthy, I deserve to be healthy, I WILL get healthy and stay there.

I look forward to sharing my renewed journey with my spark friends.
Together we can do this, get healthy, live healthy, stay healthy.

My Goals:
My goal is to get moving again. Last year I tore 2 tendons in my foot which led to surgery in June 2015. A long recovery led me to much inactivity. While I still have to be careful, it's time for me to move again!

My Program:
I am learning that I like/love exercise along with counting calories and using portion control.

Personal Information:
i'm approaching the BIG
6-0 this summer. A good time to reevaluate where I am in my life.

Other Information:
i am a huge dog lover. My last fur baby passed about 2 1/2 years ago and there has been an empty space in my heart since then. My hubby & myself are avid campers, enjoying the great outdoors. I love to read... Pretty much anything I get my hands on.

    Thank you so much for your prayers about our VA situation. Hubby went to Social Security for a printout of what his was in 2016 and mine will be mailed to me. We are fairly sure that we do not come in under what they allow. How much we will have to pay back, who knows.

    Yea -- it was funny about the GC .. the first time we went .. the food was really good .. and I enjoyed it .. this time ... not so much .. lol .. Maybe I was more worried about the weather than having an appetite .. don't know .. but hubby was floored .. even with the senior discount, and his free meal .. it was $20 .. (extravagant for hubby) .. lol lol ..

    OK .. haven't done much since I got here ... so better go do something .. did I say .. 54 working days, and 74 day day's until June 30th !!! :)

    Talk later .. and thanks for stopping by to visit !!! ALWAYS enjoy your visits .. :)
