One year on SparkPeople 1/25/2019.

Learned a lot about myself. Found what works for me. Figured out what gets me off track. Now the real battle begins!





Hi! On my way to better health. Took a trip to Florida with the family and had to sit down so often when walking the parks I decided I had to make a change. Especially since a lot of our retirement plans include seeing this beautiful country. I am doing well so far. I have made the commitment to changing how I eat and feel better already! The food tracker is really helping me!!!


Member Since: 1/25/2018

Fitness Minutes: 23,249

My Goals:
50 lbs (to get to 190), Make better choices for what to eat and portion control.
(Calculated next two goals according to BMI Chart:)
30 lb goal = 160 lbs (163 will get me just below a BMI of 30 which is the obese marker)
40 lbs more =120 lbs = good weight for me at 5"2"


My Program:
Food tracker and a real effort to get more sleep. I realized I have been exhausted. (because I did not sleep very well or long enough).
Getting more sleep has helped TREMENDOUSLY! During the week I do well on my eating and exercising BUT:
Need to work on weekend eating. Family around and I keep getting off track. Have to steel myself ahead of time and make plans.



Personal Information:
married 35 years to my best friend. 2 grown daughters: one just graduated with her Masters, one is in Vet School. Yeah! I like gardening, line dancing, arts, crafts. jigsaw puzzles, seeing the USA, reading (historical novels are a fav along with Stephen King and that genre)


Other Information:
We now live in Maryland. I am from the Boston area, which means New England, because we traveled around up there like Western Europeans travel around Western Europe. My husband is from Pittsburgh steel mill area. Grew up in a mining community, poor of money, but rich in everything else. Music was a big thing, He is a wonderful musician. (As were his Father,Uncles and Brother) Could have gone to Julliard but also loved the Sciences; so got his PhD in that field instead. Although, I am still spoiled by the wonderful music that fills our house because he hasn't given up the music.

    Hi there my friend! Yeah I went to a pre-season baby Pens game last Friday. Opening night for the big pens was last night and they lost - boo hoo! LOL! Opening night for the Baby Pens is October 12th and I will be there! So glad hockey is back in season!

    How are you doing!? Herb is scheduled to get his cast off on 10/10!

    ~~~~***~~~~***~~~~Stop waiting~~~~***~~~~***~~~~
    For that perfect moment...it doesn't exist and never will.
    Focus on what you can do now, in this exact moment.
    All it takes is one small action each day to get closer to your goal.
    Write it down....plan it out....and begin.
