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 Goals:
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!)

    Knowing that those words that mean so much to me...that they mean something to you...well that is what it is all about isn't it

    It brings me great joy to know that others find inspiration with these thoughts

    Hope you say hello every now and the meantime I know you are out there!
