It's my turn

Saturday, September 24, 2011

Recently, I celebrated my 59th birthday. As usual, my family kept asking me what I wanted for my birthday, and I found myself answering with my mother's words "I really don't need anything" Truth is, what I wanted, they couldn't give me.
I used to be full of energy- never sitting still. I used to be able to eat what I wanted and would burn the calories off. I realize we change as we age but I don't think we change this much.
What do I want? I want my energy back. I want to be the size I think I am.
I want to be able to put on my sneakers and not get out of breath. I'd like to look at my shadow and not see "Humpty Dumpty"
What do I want for my birthday next year? I want to be me again.

    Your version of "me" is not all that far away. When you get there, you'll have new challenges, so take your time working one step towards your goals at a time, and you'll successfully gain the right mindset to handle all the wonderful changes you're about to experience, as well as learn how to live -- again and again -- the best healthy habits to make this change a lifetime.

    Making small changes that you can make permanent is a good way to start. I agree with TURTLEBEAR; set lots of small goals so that you can see progress along the way. You will be successful as long as you stick with it!

    Sounds like you just set a long term Spark goal. Now you need to set some short and medium term goals to get you there!!
