I saw mentioned on another site. Not much was said about it, just that this person had joined for weight loss. I decided to take a look and I am so glad that I did.

I joined SparkPeople January 3, 2008. I have never actually been on a diet or tried to exercise. I had turned into a couch potato years ago and had no stamina at all. I would think about losing weight. My diet was to cut back on my foods and walk for about 5 minutes. This would last 1 or 2 days tops before I would give up.

I still find it hard to believe that I am still here on May 31, 2008! I attribute my success to all the wonderful friends I have found here on SparkPeople. I am learning so much, gaining my health back, losing weight and making close friends.

January 24, 2009

Well, I fell back into old habits and all of the 40 pounds that I had lost back. I am having to relearn all the GOOD habits for a healthy life, but I WILL do it.

I am back again as of March 9, 2012...and I feel strong this time.

"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'm positive I can do this
I'm positive I'm Making Progress
I'm Positive because I'm sure of myself
I'm Positive because I have a goal!
I'm Positive because I know where I'm Going
I'm Positive I'll Get there!

Thank you SparkPeople and SparkPeople members!

My Goals:
To get healthy.

To lose weight.

To have more energy.

My Program:
After 53 years, I figured it is time I learned what exactly is a healthy diet. I stopped smoking June 13, 2005 and I want to be healthy. I am trying to eat/drink the right amount of water, right amount of calories, right amount of carbs, right amount of fat, right amount of protein, and the right amount of fiber. I have also slowly began to move instead of sit or lay down all the time. I am taking baby steps and trying to increase weekly.

Well...I am 55 now and having to relearn everything I learned last year.....

Personal Information:
I live in Georgia

Married 37 years (will be 38 years on 06/30/10).

I have 2 adult children ( son and daughter) .
