Hi, and welcome to my Sparkpage! I've been at SparkPeople since 2005 - and I've come to realize that the quest for good health and weightloss is a journey. There are no 'quick fixes' - and there will be ups and downs along the way. A lot of it is mental - having a goal, a plan, staying focused and never giving up.

I find I am most successful when I do a 'streak' - an ongoing series of days where I track the basics. So, I started a SparkTeam called 'Streak to Success' and I'd love for you to join me there if you think it would help you toward your goal, too! You will find a link to it in my Spark Teams list. Let's work together!

Member Since: 4/5/2004

Fitness Minutes: 42,206

My Goals:
My overall goal is to lose 60 pounds and to become heatlhier and stronger and of course, to look better and have fun buying smaller clothes again!

Accomplishing THIS is WORTH the effort!!!

My Program:
Keeping track of my calories , exercise minutes, water and fruits/veggies everyday. For exercise I mostly do a combo of water aerobics, walking and bike riding. I use lots of charts, stickers, etc. to keep me motivated (see my picture gallery).

Personal Information:
I live in Georgia with my wonderful husband. We have two grown sons who are 28 and 32. I work 3 days a week as an administrative assistant. I like to cook, read, scrapbook family photos and spend time with my wonderful husband who I've been married to for 35 years. .

Other Information:
Here are some of my favorite weight loss quotes:

A person who really wants something will find a way; a person who doesn't will find an excuse!

Fitness is not Perfection, It's PROGRESSION!

Success is the result of small efforts - repeated day in and day out

Don't exchange what you want MOST for what you want at the moment!

Success is the progressive realization of a worthwhile dream.

What separates winners from losers is the courage to persist long enough to win - David Cottrell

    Hey, I'm sorry. I'm not ignoring you. I haven't been on my bike this week, but I have been to the gym. I have lost six pounds so far. My doctor was happy with me. How are things with you? Any plans for Mother's Day? I don't have any plans myself, I just know that I'm not cooking! Have a great weekend and I'll talk to you soon.

    Hi CP, just wanted to come in and say howdy. I am very proud of you and your page is awesome!!!! You know you have been such an inspiration to me. Your visual board and things that you have done have helped me along my journey. I have changed my visual board I started with Melting off the pounds each month I change the theme but have kept everything else on there. Anyway I just wanted to let you know how much you touched my life in my journey. Thanks and keep up the great work. Love your puppy.
