Everyone gets 'redo's' until the day we die-here's to the first day of many more

Get Real...
1) It took months to lose my first 100# and get healthy in 2008/2009...keeping it off for two more years...now, after FIVE years of poor choices, ALL the weight is back, but I KNOW what to do to get healthy once again-just not what to do to make it LAST! YET!!!

2) Just because I get fit & lose the weight doesn't mean I'm 'cured' from emotional eating-it just means I have great perseverance

3) FOOD/proportions are KEY to losing & maintaining weight loss

4) Exercise is crucial for me to keep the endorphins kicked in and to have the tone to handle the weight loss

5) When I look in the mirror, I want to know I've done my best & accept who I am, for where I am & go from there...

Back to Basics

1) Actually stick with my goals-one meal at a time, one workout at a time...

2) Get back to basics-more calories used than calories taken in...

3) Keep my purpose/goals in mind-and just 'do it'-no excuses...

4) 5% weight loss or 1 dress size-whichever comes first!!!

5) Keep the SP 'friends' I've made & meet/make at least 1 more

Fitness Minutes: 62,231

My Goals:
1) lower cholesterol, blood pressure & glucose levels
2) exchange poor habits for healthy ones
3) CARE about how I feel-physically, emotionally & spiritually

My Program:
1) track nutrition and fitness minutes
2) use the equipment & knowledge I have to regain focus & build momentum
3) hold myself accountable each & every day
4) learn from others & ask for support as well as give it when needed

Personal Information:
Having just lost my oldest brother to a host of health issues, it's hitting home that I'm not invincible and that my poor choices are catching up with me...I'm a few years away from retirement & I want to ENJOY years of travel and grandchildren!

Other Information:
As one who has always struggled with self-image & confidence, I'm getting too 'old' to care about the little things, so being active, making better nutrition choices and taking it one day at a time is where I'm at today!

    Thanks for your encouragement on my blog, Trying to get it right. I noticed that things are different for me now than we I started SP too. I didn't really have much stress the first time and now my mom has been having health issues since last March. I am a stress eater.
    The weather is so beautiful this weekend, maybe I can start my walking routine again. (Walking instead of eating!)
    Have a great weekend! emoticon

    I would love to walk around at least one lake with you or any Sparker who would like to join us.

    It was so wonderful to have cool weather today. It has been so long. I went to the zoo and persuaded my husband to come join me.

    Thank you for the SP goodie. Actually, it is my daughter who lives in the St. Louis area -- I just visit a lot. Best wishes to you as you journey toward health and fitness goals!
