March 2018

I started my journey to Better Health 6 years ago on SparkPeople. My weight came off at a steady pace. As I lost, I became more mobile and was able to do so much more. I lost over 150 pounds in 2.5 years. I came within sight of my ultimate goal weight, but I slacked off a little. With each holiday and family event I gained. My own fault as I love to bake! I never left SparkPeople. I logged my food nearly everyday, even the major over indulgences! I still exercised daily. I am now 65 pounds away from my ultimate goal. I have taken a good look at my habits and have made improvements and will succeed in getting the weight off. It won't be as "easy" now since I already exercise daily and eat clean healthy foods. It will happen 1 pound at a time, but it will happen!

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to lose enough weight to have a "normal" BMI with a little wiggle room!

My Program:
I want to consistently hit 5 miles or more on my FitBit daily
I want to eat between 1350 and 1650 calories daily
I want to eat more fruits and vegetables each day.
I want to continue drinking 64 ounces daily.

Personal Information:
I'm 52 years old. I been married to a great guy for 32 years and we have 2 adult children who live in the area. I was a stay at home mom for my kids and that turned into a full time caregiver to a couple elderly family members. Now my parents have moved back to the area so I can take on that roll again if need be. So needless to say, family first is my "motto" and my way of life.

    What you have achieved up to now is not by circumstances but by your own decisions, your own thoughts and your own actions. When it feels too difficult to push forward, remind yourself that "this too shall pass". To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice your dreams and your gifts.
