July 3, 2017 - At the Lake!
So, my Happy New Year Plan didn't get off to a good start.
I think I even gained a few MORE pounds in my efforts to lose.
So, I joined Medifast. I need the face-to-face accountability, as well as more structure, and counseling. Its not just, follow these plans and actions that we give everyone; it is what-about-Pam that works/doesn't work. I find it refreshing.
I've been able to follow my Medifast Plan for almost 2 months. Have lost 14lbs. Really feeling great! Not bored, and not feeling like there is something missing. It does help that it is Summer and my dog has gotten into the routine of walking after dinner. So much so if I'm not moving after my plate is in the sink, he is in front of me grunting. He is adorable!

Happy New Year 2017!!
Today is Friday, December 30, 2016.
Like most people, I consider the New Year a good time to reflect and make new starts. I have let 2016 get away from me wrapped up in major projects and moves at work. And also a personal move in order to be closer to work, and lessen the commute that was really starting to get difficult.
I have not updated this page since July 2015! I let a year pass between the update before that. How time flies when you're having fun, so they say.
After 5-1/2 years on SparkPeople, my goals have not changed.
I am still looking to lose 50lbs.
I am still trying to reach (that just out of reach) One-derland.
I am still trying to maintain my blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
This is a never-ending ride/roller-coaster.
Now that menopause has kicked in full tilt, I am finding myself even more out of control than ever before. And aches and pains can no longer go ignored or "pushed through."
But, the positive changes include:
Daily commute decreased from 90 minutes to 15 minutes, is helping my physical pains and disposition. And time for breakfast.
Free gym equipment at work. We even have a treadmill desk that we share. I don't have to sit at a desk all day, and still get work done.
Food choices limited at work requiring planned packed lunches.
I am truly enjoying the simple plans to move into healthier living.

Best of luck in 2017 for all my SP friends!
