Hi there. I need to lose 75lbs (again) and am no longer looking for quick fixes but for a way to eat healthier and stay motivated through the long process its going to take. I love to eat (or I wouldn't be here LOL), hate to exercise (help!) read, travel, go to movies, and socialize with friends. Im 49, single, have a 29 year old daughter a 10 year old grandaughter, both who live with me and my cats, in Toronto, Canada. Im turning the big 50 this year and have planned a European vacation this June with my girlfriend to visit 7 countries and the last thing I want is to be overweight and out of shape for this once in a lifetime vacation!
The one thing i've learned is that I can't do it alone, so with the help of my spark friends and my awesome sparkteam, this is the year for a healthier leaner new me!

My goal is to lose 75 lbs by eating healthier and moving more.

My Program:
Since every diet known to man has failed to keep this weight off I have committed myself to eating healthier. I also hate to exercise and have very painful knees so am removing the clothes from the gazelle and dusting off my total gym and pledge to use them at least 3 times a week.

Personal Information:
My name is Vera, im 47 and I live in Toronto Canada with my daughter, granddaughter and 3 cats!

Other Information:
Favorite quote: "And this too shall pass" as well as "Why put off for tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow" (hence the need for motivation!)

    Hey, Vera;
    Thanks for your note on my blog. You know that if I win my new "Batmobile", that you'll be the first to hear about it. You ARE (after all), my first and original "weight loss buddy", are you not??

    How's the injury healing up (notice I didn't say anything about your butt . . . OOPS !!).

    LOL !!

    E-mail me if you've got time . . .

    "Happy Valentine's Day, Vera!"

    The ship of your life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of your existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, maintain an attitude of gratitude... an attitude of LOVE. Love has no desire but to fulfill itself... and this begins with love of SELF. Love's desire is to melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. A woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretence and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself. Self-love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope. Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away... make this day breathless as you drown yourself in the love that issues from YOU... for yourself, and for others. Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer, and wake at dawn with a winged heart, giving thanks for another day of loving.
    - Adapted from the words of KAHLIL GIBRAN & MAYA ANGELOU -

    MAY GOD ABUNDANTLY BLESS YOU, and those you love, in every way that you require. May he hold you gently in the palm of his hand in a very personal way, and may you rest in the fullness of his love, his grace, his strength, his wisdom, his rescue, his redemption, his healing, his inspiration, his restoration and his mercy as you require it! May you carry in your heart always an extra special awareness of God's great love for you, may you feel his sweet and gentle touch upon your life, and may you see his miracles all around you. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen!
