Iron_Resolve is now LongLeanNLanky 179.6
Saturday, September 24, 2016
When I was a kid, this was how our Mother referred to us, as Long Lean and Lanky. She got a kick out of us being tall and skinny like she was. As I gained weight through the years, this no longer fit. Here on Spark I needed a strong name, to build my resolve to take better care of myself. The name I chose, Iron_Resolve, is actually a military term. And my blogs began showing up at the top of the google search page, right alongside of military discussions. Hence, my page had reached 17,400 + hits. I didn't like that kind of notoriety. So I took my page offline and to private only to Spark Friends.
I have since learned to face everything in life. My fears, disappointment, and ultimately my weight gain. I have followed though with my adult son's advice, "Mom, you just have to take care of yourself"
It has been a long road through self discovery. I have learned to stand in my own truth. I have always been courageous and generous. Now is the time to be fearless, and self focused for results that matter.
Could I reduce my Blood Pressure? I sure did when I did a 5% Challenge and lost 30 lbs
Could I further reduce my Cholesterol? I did lose 30 points.
Maybe 30 is my magic number! We'll see, but I would love for it to be 50. As in Pounds LOST Forever.
But I wail start here, today, with a softer, kinder, gentler moniker.
Good Luck to everyone here, on our Journey to improved Health and Fitness.
