I've been on and off of Spark since 2008. At first, I did really well and stuck to tracking my food and exercise. The past six years though have been a different story as you can see by my picture timeline!

Now it is November, 2016 and I am starting over yet again! When I looked at the pictures from my son's wedding in October, I had a big wake up call. I need to do this for me and get serious.

Below are some of my favorite quotes...

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.
~Carl Jung

I used to say, I sure hope things will change. Then I learned that the only way things are going to change for me is when I change.
~Jim Rohn

We don't accomplish anything in this world alone... and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one's life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that creates something.
~Sandra Day O'Connor

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you're willing to work.
~Oprah Winfrey

Fitness Minutes: 45,275

My Goals:
My goals are to be healthy, reach 50 (it's coming up fast!), be around till 80. I am trying to exercise daily, even if it's only walking a few miles.

My Program:
Eat right, log everything that goes in my mouth, and get my body moving.

Personal Information:
I lived in Southern New Jersey and was always a total beach bum until March, 2013 when I moved to VT. We traded in the beach for mountains and snow! We spent 2.5 years in VT and tried out SC for a brief 6 months. That made me realize I'm not a Southerner! Now we are settled back in New England and living in CT.

Other Information:
I am an avid reader and am always looking for a new book.

    I ordered the Food Lovers Diet and it seems like an easy diet to follow overall. Plus I have been logging into Sparkpeople-tracking my food and my carbs are lower but protien is higher. I sample day: egg whites and veggies for breakfast, a subway chicken-spinach salad for lunch, meat potato and another veggie for supper along with yogurt, cottage cheese, soy protien as snacks. I do eat out 1x per week for breakfast and if I eat out for supper I make 2 meals out of it. I notice I dont eat bread and potatoes at the same meal anymore except for my breakfast out. Let me know how you are doing. emoticon
