I'm nearly fifty and don't want to feel it....I want to LIKE the way I look and feel. I want to set goals and achieve them, and not just achieve them, but build on them.

NOV 11th, 2010
I AM FIFTY - and I feel GREAT!!! Finding Spark has been one of the most wonderful blessings of my life. Since starting SparkPeople, I have lost 43 lbs. and have commenced a journey to become the best me I can possibly be. I am taking better care of my health, exercising and running, continuing to eat healthy and maintain my weight loss. I am also learning to practice the same principles that helped me reach my goal weight to achieve goals in other areas of my life; ie., financially, professionally and with organization and time management. I am just beginning to comprehend how vast my options in life are and what I can do to achieve my dreams while maintaining a balance in my day to day life. I am becoming happier, more content and self assured as life goes on and I intend to keep Spreading the Spark.

I can hardly believe I've been Sparking for three years now! Still, I learn something new everyday. Sometimes I think it was easier losing the weight than it is keeping it off, but the rewards are so worth it. My goal this year is to get back of the few pounds that I have gained back and to get more consistently active. I am also planning to then start school and get my certification as a personal trainer and continue on from there to become a physical therapist. It is amazing how many areas of my life that have been Sparked by this program. Eager to find out what new roads it is going to lead me down!

My Goals:
Lose some weight and tone to look and feel better, Learn to cook tasty and healthy to help in keeping it off. Get more fit and trim. Run a 5K by fall of '10. Get my lifes priorities more in line with my lifes goals and set up my need to do's based on my priorities.

My program includes continuing to eat a healthy diet, getting 7-8 hours sleep every night, getting up without hitting the snooze and getting in at least 30 minutes of fitness everyday.

    Well today (Thurs, Jan 21) is the "big day" of Nellie's marathon mega multiple procedure surgery - when they guesstimate 7 hrs for the procedures that's really heavy duty. It is a long long time to be under, and the effects of the anesthesia alone can be felt / affect cognizance and other things for months even if everything else goes well. So please please please pray, fast & pray if you can, for Nellie today. Carol from CW Putting God 1st
