The recent (April 22) death of my husband has left me feeling sad and lifeless, but as I continue to wake up every day and reality sets in I know I have to keep moving foreward. I have reached my high weight of 225 again; this is where I started in '09. Part of me feels like it doesn't matter anymore, but the reality s that it DOES matter...a lot! I just have to figure out how to take care of my by myself; cook for me (not the junk food habit I have fallen in to) and make healthy choices for me. This proves to be harder than it sounds sometimes, but the one thing I know is this; SparkPeople has everything I need and I need to rededicate myself.
I have re-set my pages, starting over, on this site as in my life; finding a new begining.

Goals for the next 3 months are as follows:

1.. Follow training program to build strength, stamina and endurance

2. eat nutritious meals fruits and vegetables

3. Track work-outs and nutrition.

4. Measure portions

5. Weigh NO MORE than twice a week

Looking foreward to success

Personal Information:
MY NAME IS EVELYN AND I LIVE IN THE MOUNTAINS OF NORTH CAROLINA. I'M A NURSE CASE MANAGER; PRIMARILY WITH BRAIN INJURY (BOTH TRAUMATIC AND NON TRAUMATIC). I REALLY LOVE MY JOB.

I HAVE ONE SON AND 3 GRANDCHILDREN. THEY MEAN THE WORLD TO ME!
I WANT TO BE AROUND TO PLAY WITH THEM, TEACH THEM AND LEARN FROM THEM! I WANT TO PASS ON A LEGACY OF HEALTHY AND FUN!

I'VE SPENT A LIFETIME OF UNHEALTHY HABITS AND I'M WORKING HARD TO TURN THAT AROUND. IT'S ALWAYS BEEN A STRUGGLE, BUT AFTER I BECAME SERIOUS ABOUT REACHING MY GOALS, AND IMPLEMENTING A PLAN FOR REACHING THEM IT'S BECOME MORE LIKE SECOND NATURE, A HABIT. FINALLY IN MY LIFE I HAVE DEVELOPED MORE HEALTHY HABITS AND I'M ENJOYING MY LIFE. I'M ABLE TO DO THINGS THAT I COULD ONLY DREAM ABOUT, AND I'M JUST GETTING STARTED! THERE IS SO MUCH MORE I PLAN TO DO. I AM SUCCEEDING! AND VERY HAPPY!

    I noted your massage comment. Treat yourself!
    I also noted your TBI work. I went through that the past
    three plus years... doing pretty well now, all things
    considered. Best wishes!

    HI Evelyn. Congrat on your weight loss. How did you lose the weight you did? I am struggling with losing weight, but what I think my problem is, is that I eat the wrong things. I track what I eat a lot of times, but sometimes I don't. Can we please motivate and help each other, I need a buddy? Thanks

    Thanks for the comment. I would but she doesn't leave the house unless she has to. Only thing she does is watch TV and I do watch with her sometimes. But she's worried about other stuff I think. Most days she's fine. Others not so much.

    I seen on the threads that you have the turbo jam DVD. How do you like them. I have seen the commercial for them and was wondering how they are. I hate to buy something that isn't worth it. Like everyone the money situation. Hope you have a good day.
