My name is Ruth. I'm 63 yrs. young and have taken care of everyone but me. Well now is
the time to focus on me and getting in shape. I have been lucky in the past and haven't had any major health issues. My Husband on the other hand has had cancer, and a few other issues that make you wake up and be thankful for all you have. So I will begin my journey
with the help of Sparkpeople and am so excited to get started.

My Goals:
My goal is to be the best person I can be. I am lucky to have had a life without many health issures. So my goal is to exercise more eat healthier and keep in touch with all the people in the same boat as me. Keeping a record of what I eat and how I exercise is a great way to see exactly what I'm doing.

My Program:
I love sweets, thats my downfall. So I'm trying to make desserts with less sugar and I'm throwing out all the junk food. I love veggies so I will have a vegetable garden in the Spring. I love to grill outside and eat out on our patio. I am determined to live a better and healthier lifestyle. I love this site and hope to continue on a positive journey with my Sparkle People.

    Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

    1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

    2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

    The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!
