Spiralling in on SUCCESS!

One of my passions in life has been ice dancing; my Sparkname and page are a reminder of that! On ice, as you spin or curl into a centered point, the skate blade etches a spiralling edge; to me it is a great image of motion and intention... both qualities I bring to this new endeavor in my life.

My kids are active and interesting people - my greatest desire is to continue to be healthy and active enough to share their interests and have some incredible experiences together. I have a wonderful man in my life who has been down the weightloss road ahead of me; he is a great mentor!

I was aware of my weight as early as grade one. As a ballet dancer and then a figure skater, my body seemed to be my greatest enemy. It took me years to just accept that I didn't have the body type that is typical for either activity. Even as a teen I did TOPS, a variety of fad diets, then later in life I tried Herbal Magic, Weight Watchers and Dr B. I lost 42 lbs on the last one, and it was the wake-up call. When my blood sugar dropped so low that I collapsed in the office, I realized that I couldn't do it anymore. Of course, the weight did not stay off and I spent quite awhile reflecting and journalling on what I wanted to do. I am still in that process; letting go of the "quick-fix" mentality and moving to a "life-style" way of thinking is a big change for me!

My Goals:
I am headed to Scotland in spring of 2014 to curl in 2 bonspeils; I intend to be healthy and ready for that adventure! - UPDATE: Done!

I am now planning a Bike and Barge tour through the Netherlands in spring 2021. Time to re-group and prepare for this next adventure.

My Program:
I am back to meal planning and tracking my activities, which mostly include yoga, biking and walking.

Personal Information:
I am a BC girl, relocated to AB!

I adore the mountains, I am a winter-lover and I definitely enjoy a good cup of coffee! I do not like chocolate - but will take cheese any day! :)

Other Information:
My Dad loves to use the line "Impossible just takes a little longer". That saying has lead me to some pretty OCD behaviour, but it has the kernel of motivation that I admire! I DO think out of the box and I love a challenge, so -- if there is a motto I live by, that would be one!

    I love your screen name and admire your ability to even STAND on ice! I've always loved watching ice skaters but I'm too clumsy to do it myself. Thanks for your positive feedback on my post & good luck on your journey 😃

    .´*.¸.•´♥ Thanks for the friend add! Back at ya!

    One thing I would suggest is: Keep collecting Spark Friends like candy!! It is calorie free and they always give you something to "chew on"!!

    You can just "friend" them...no need to ask. We are friendly and don't bite!

    You can find motivation and inspiration from everyone here, even those that are struggling (because you know how they feel!!) Welcome new people, Join teams, blog, join challenges, blog, be excited, blog. And did I mention: blog? The future fabulous you will want to look back at your journey and will want to encourage others!! When the excitement wanes (it WILL!!) put down your pom poms and practice your"Power Pose" in the background, (but don't leave and don't do any damage) and wait for the tide to turn...pick up your oars and keep rowing.

    If you want to know what Power Posing is, see my blog called:

    "I Double Dog Dare You!"

    You can do this!!
