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.

    LOL Had to respond to your comment first! LOL
    It's a result of too much closet space.
    I could outfit the entire cast of Grease, Hair or Saturday Night Fever!

    Thank you so much for your comment on my “Hope” blog.
    DH & I know we have been very fortunate, especially to have found each other all those years ago.
    I await the day that the world returns to normal and I can cook that turkey for family.
    Be sure I WILL post a photo of that.

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. Yep, freedom is almost entirely gone. And so many people are completely blind to what's happening even though it's as plain as the masks on their faces! It's hard to know what's more devastating, having all our freedoms being rapidly swiped away from us all in just a few months, or being so disappointed in the majority of humanity who can't see it and are certainly not willing to stand up and fight to keep those precious freedoms that our forefathers fought and died for! Their compliance is what's making this nightmare possible. Anyway, do enjoy what freedom you have left...if we continue down this path, by the end of 2021 it will be nothing but a distant memory. Happy Thanksgiving!
