This is the year!! Want to eat healthy, move more, and reach some goals.

Who am I?? A 59 year old woman-- wife, mom and grandmom.

I live in Alaska, am program coordinator of in home programs for the state's Office of Children's Services who loves to read, watch movies, listen to music, cook, and -no surprise- eat.

I also love to travel to warmer climates, especially on a ship. I am a breast cancer survivor, student, and computer-a-holic. Also, fighting being a night-time binger... sometimes eating things I don't even like, what's THAT about?

I want to be able to travel on a plane without a seatbelt extender; to more easily move, bend and exercise; to fit in all kinds of chairs; to be less winded; to feel better about myself; for my family and hubby to feel proud of me. So, it is a fresh start, small steps--not that all or nothing stuff I do all the time. I can do this!!!

    "The person with a fixed goal,
    a clear picture of his desire,
    or an ideal always before him,
    causes it, through repetition,
    to be buried deeply in his
    subconscious mind and
    is thus enabled, thanks to its
    generative and sustaining power,
    to realize his goal in a minimum of time
    and with a minimum of physical effort.
    Just pursue the thought unceasingly.
    Step by step you will achieve realization,
    for all your faculties and powers
    become directed to that end."

    Hi, and welcome! It's good to have you on our team. You will find lots of encouragement and motivation here. SparkPeople arms us with all the tools we need to recapture our health and vitality. Your nutrition and fitness trackers will afford you a measure of accountability that has proven life-changing for me. Be dedicated in tracking even when you make unwise choices (and we all do from time to time). They will guide you in making healthier decisions in the future. The power to gain weight rested solely in our hands. The power to lose that same weight also rests solely in our hands. Nothing, NOTHING can stop us unless we allow it. The site is large and packed with so much good stuff. It can be a bit daunting at first. If you need help learning to navigate the site or with anything else, please don't hesitate to ask here in the team forums, by SparkPage comments or through SparkMail. We're here to help. Looking forward to getting to know you in our posts!
