Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek. --

My Goals:
So, I am going to shake things up a bit... Let's see if THIS will work. I need to become more accountable
1/22 227 BIG ICK
1 pound per week. This I am going to try and do. Eat better, Move more, it's a pound, I can DO a pound, but gee whiz, 52 pounds this year, sounds so much better than 1 pound this week...

My Program:
I need to remember what I am putting in my mouth .
I need to remember that if I can’t (won’t) walk because it’s cold out, I need to move in another way.
I need to remember that if I don’t burn calories, I will not continue to lose weight.
I need to remember that whole foods are better than processed foods.
I need to remember that this is a journey to the rest of my life.

Personal Information:
I joined Sparks a couple of years ago, and every once in a while I would post what I ate. This spring (2010) I decided I would make myself more accountable. So, here I am, 50. WOW how cool. I am 50. Now the flip side of that is I often don't think I have changed the world, I think I thought I would. I didn't invent anything that changed the world, People don't say, Oh, there she goes, you know, she founded... Updated..
1/14 I am still here, I am now 53, and I am still on the journey, and I WILL NOT GIVE UP.

Other Information:
To wake up every day grateful for the things I already have. To remember that life is a gift not given, and that if I don't do something about my weight, I may not have a long life, which I need, and so does my family.

    Happy almost summer. We are busy remodeling our living room. We took out a fireplace that was in the house when we bought it over 20 years ago. We never built a fire in the darn thing, just had our TV setting in it. Man I'm glad we didn't build a fire when we took the blocks off we discovered that the boards behind the block were charred. Apparently the fire got out of the firebox. The drywall behind the box was scorched and there was soot all over the walls behind the blocks. We took out all the carpet and are having our hardwood floors refinished. We are putting aspen tongue and groove in a diagonal pattern on two of the walls. We are working very hard but having a great time and loving the results. I'll post a picture of the finished product on my page when we are finished.

    I hope all is well with you and you are enjoying the warmer weather.
