Oh My Gosh, this is my Tenth Year on SparkPeople and I'm still overweight. I joined right before my 50th Birthday and I'm now 60. Well, there's no deadline on our dreams. This will be the year that I create healthier eating and exercise habits; give up diet soda; try new things; be more adventurous; keep a positive attitude; and live happy! It won't happen overnight, but I can make it happen. I'm DEE-termined.

"I will not feel deprived when I turn down junk food. I will feel empowered that I made the healthy choice." ~Unknown

"The more consistent you are, the quicker you will lose weight." ~Linda Spangle

"When done correctly, healthy meals can taste even better than full-fat restaurant meals." I've always known this... now it's time to get cooking and find healthy recipes.

Remember the opening song on the Mary Tyler Moor show (1999)? "You can have the town, why don't you take it. You're going to make it after all." Hat thrown in the air. That's my theme song for 2017.

Focusing on good habits: Fresh and healthy food, accompanied by vigorous exercise, water, sleep, fresh air, and FUN!!

"Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Dee - You're doing great!! This time you didn't leave... you're still popping on here! See? It's getting you motivated to get back on track. It's never too late - 5 lbs is nothing! I know you'll have that off in no time.😊

    Yay good for you! I am right there with you. I gained back 2 of the 10 I had lost so easy to gain it back and way to hard to loose it again.

    Nope no wake up calls today. But I went and picked them up from Daycare early today and we played and played. I am truly ready for bed. Which is where i will be going shortly. By 7 I am sure lol. It's hell getting old.

    I went shopping at Kohl's with Mom on Friday! Lots of great deals, but I didn't get anything. Mom did! I have to look at what I already have for Christmas, but was fun looking around!
