March 2018

I started my journey to Better Health 6 years ago on SparkPeople. My weight came off at a steady pace. As I lost, I became more mobile and was able to do so much more. I lost over 150 pounds in 2.5 years. I came within sight of my ultimate goal weight, but I slacked off a little. With each holiday and family event I gained. My own fault as I love to bake! I never left SparkPeople. I logged my food nearly everyday, even the major over indulgences! I still exercised daily. I am now 65 pounds away from my ultimate goal. I have taken a good look at my habits and have made improvements and will succeed in getting the weight off. It won't be as "easy" now since I already exercise daily and eat clean healthy foods. It will happen 1 pound at a time, but it will happen!

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to lose enough weight to have a "normal" BMI with a little wiggle room!

My Program:
I want to consistently hit 5 miles or more on my FitBit daily
I want to eat between 1350 and 1650 calories daily
I want to eat more fruits and vegetables each day.
I want to continue drinking 64 ounces daily.

Personal Information:
I'm 52 years old. I been married to a great guy for 32 years and we have 2 adult children who live in the area. I was a stay at home mom for my kids and that turned into a full time caregiver to a couple elderly family members. Now my parents have moved back to the area so I can take on that roll again if need be. So needless to say, family first is my "motto" and my way of life.

    Thank you for lifting me up. I tell ya sometimes I loose sight. Not as much as I use to . I get back to Jesus as soon as possible. He ways are higher than ours and His thoughts are higher than ours. That is where I want and need to stay focused.

    I guess it is kinda like peter when he took his eyes off of Jesus while walking on the water, down he went! Jesus just reached right out and lifted him right back up! I am getting quicker about realizing what is happening when I forget I have Jesus. Years ago I could go for long periods of time in confusion or worry and depressed. Not any more Praise God. I am looking forward to the day when I just flat refuse to pulled . Anchored! Have a great evening and again thank you for the smilie! I agree we have reason to be joyful ,thankful,prayerful, powerful.... emoticon

    Hi Hope your weekend went well.Congrats on being one of the winners in the jingle bell challenge. I have been so scattered, not a good confession. I am hoping for more strength to resist unneeded food in the days to come. GBU
