January 2020 update:
I've been stumbling all over the place.
Looking at my 2019 goal - it was not met. I'm carrying it over to 2020: Build more activity into every day.

January 2019 update:
Still working on those last 10 lbs...
2018 was a lazy year, as far as physical activity goes.
I'm lucky I was able to maintain.
I'll be building more activity into my days in 2019.
Strategy is to plan it, schedule it, do it!

January 2018 update:
10 unwanted pounds have found their way back onto my hips and thighs... Goal is to lose those again.
It's slow going.

Member since March 2007.

Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 10+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Prior to finding SP I had lost 30 lbs doing WW online but was unable to lose the last 10.

After 6 years of fine-tuning, trial and error, I finally reached my ultimate weight goal in early 2013, and am now maintaining within a +/- 3% radius.

I'm hanging out and hanging in, still fine-tuning as I go. Maintenance does not mean you have it all figured out...

My Goals:

My Program:
1. Eat mostly clean and unprocessed
I believe there are no "forbidden foods". Instead I am focusing on the quality of what I eat.
2. Drink plenty of water
This has been a challenge - always.
3. Be active
Zumba, yoga, and hiking are my favorite pastimes.
4. Get enough sleep
Goal is 8 hours.
5. Manage stress
My stress managing methods are exercise, music, and meditation/yoga.
6. Positive attitude
Turn can't into can, and don't into do.
7. Gratitude
Appreciate who I am, where I am, and what I can do.

    Oh, yes that walk was wonderful. It feels good to work these muscles.... Most of the time I stay within the estate, but on weekends I do venture out, early morning, before all the other runners and walkers are out.
    I really appreciate the area I live in. And if they give us full lock down, then I can still do loops in our garden, as my landlady has been doing.
    Hope all is well on your end.

    Thank you so much for reading my blog. I hope you are coping well with our strange new life and keeping well. I admire the people in service jobs who work bravely and cheerfully, despite having to deal with a lot of people.

    In some ways, it’s quite restful not working and staying at home, but I’m glad for grocery shopping - a great excuse to get out into the mild spring weather.

    Stay well!

    Our "senior shopping" doesn't include pharmacy so we'll be heading out for a quick one today among the "younger" shoppers to see if it really makes a difference.

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. Are you enjoying gardening? I imagine Georgia is quite warm by now, though I’m quite unfamiliar with the US.

    It’s such a big change in our lives and we don’t know where the end point is. I sometimes feel the word “positive” is overused, but in this case, it is very helpful to work at staying positive.

    Be safe and well!

    Thank you for your comment on my blog! I'm hoping I get to see those two little bundles before they go to high school!
