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.
