It's time for a walk on the healthier side of life. For the past 25 years I've watched my weight creep up an average of 3 pounds per year. Well . . . 3 x 25 = 75. YIKES!!! It's way past time for changes.

A lighter me would own a swimsuit and not be embarrassed at/in the pool. (One would think at my age I would know it's my own thinking that's creating my embarrassment.)

A lighter me would have more fun clothes shopping. A wider selection would be available and I could actually find clothes that I enjoy wearing.

A lighter me would be healthier for my body--lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, less stress on the old ticker, bones and joints.

A lighter me would be better able to keep up with my 2 year old grand-daughter.

With these thoughts in mind, on 7/12/09 my honey and I took the advice of his daughter, checked out SP, and together embarked on this adventure of a new healthy lifestyle.

To our success, Salute!

My Goals:
Along with losing 79 pounds, I am getting back into making this body move, back into living and enjoying life. Yes, diet and exercise are needed, but more important, a complete change within--a change in thinking, a change in attitude--is happening now. It's this change that makes the weight loss, exercise, lifestyle changes a success.

My Program:
8/6/09 Currently my program is:

1. Log every piece of food that goes into my mouth.
2. Measure/weigh all foods.
3. Yes, I drink at least 64 oz. of water and visit the ladies' room about every hour & a half.
4. Weigh-in only once a week. Keep a log of weigh-ins noting weight, weekly loss, and total loss since starting program. My intention is to take measurements only once a month. (I'll complete week 4 on 8/10/09.)
5. Log in to SP every day and work through the SparkPoint checklist. This keeps me informed and motivated.
6. Exercising on a regular basis is still something I'm working on to make as a daily habit.

This program seems to be working for me at this point in time. I haven't had to face the challenge of hitting a plateau, but I think I'll be better prepared when it happens.

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to read and leave such thoughtful comments on my blog about bullying. Although I agree with you that by choosing to ignore the barbs, the words of our bullies lose their power, doing that in practice can prove to be much more difficult. Think about the child who is relentlessly picked on and singled out by his or her classmates and is friendless, or the person who is experiencing bullying in the workplace and lacks the means to leave that sort of toxic situation right away. In some cases, there isn't an opportunity to escape from our bullies and having to bear the brunt of their taunts day after day takes a toll, no matter how hard we try to tune them out. And I think it's even worse when there's some truth in the taunts of the bullies, like when they're attacking us because of our weight and we know that we are, in fact, overweight. Sticks and stones may break our bones, but names do sometimes hurt us no matter how hard to try to rise above them.
