I saw SparkPeople.com mentioned on another site. Not much was said about it, just that this person had joined for weight loss. I decided to take a look and I am so glad that I did.

I joined SparkPeople January 3, 2008. I have never actually been on a diet or tried to exercise. I had turned into a couch potato years ago and had no stamina at all. I would think about losing weight. My diet was to cut back on my foods and walk for about 5 minutes. This would last 1 or 2 days tops before I would give up.

I still find it hard to believe that I am still here on May 31, 2008! I attribute my success to all the wonderful friends I have found here on SparkPeople. I am learning so much, gaining my health back, losing weight and making close friends.

January 24, 2009

Well, I fell back into old habits and all of the 40 pounds that I had lost back. I am having to relearn all the GOOD habits for a healthy life, but I WILL do it.

I am back again as of March 9, 2012...and I feel strong this time.

My Goals:
To get healthy.

To lose weight.

To have more energy.


My Program:
After 53 years, I figured it is time I learned what exactly is a healthy diet. I stopped smoking June 13, 2005 and I want to be healthy. I am trying to eat/drink the right amount of water, right amount of calories, right amount of carbs, right amount of fat, right amount of protein, and the right amount of fiber. I have also slowly began to move instead of sit or lay down all the time. I am taking baby steps and trying to increase weekly.

Well...I am 55 now and having to relearn everything I learned last year.....



Personal Information:
I live in Georgia

Married 37 years (will be 38 years on 06/30/10).

I have 2 adult children ( son and daughter) .

    Hi and welcome to SparkPeople and our 50+ Members and Cholesterol Support Teams. Here you will find tons of encouragement, support and answers. Everyone is so helpful! If you have a question, comment or suggestion, just post it. Someone will respond quickly.
    When I first joined SparkPeople, all I did was read the comments. The encouragement and emotional support I received from that kick-started me into checking SP out in more detail. Now I even join in the posts, put pictures on my SparkPage (something I never thought I would do) and tell the world how much I weigh. (sigh)
    My days are brighter and each day brings a new beginning. Just take one small step at a time and enjoy the journey as you go. Remember to just take one day at a time on this journey of a lifetime. This journey consists of many small steps, a few speed bumps and pot holes, and a lot of fun. Start slowly. If you can only do 5 minutes, that's great. Maybe do 5 minutes two or three times a day and add as you can tolerate. Get a good pedometer (about$10) and see how many steps you are taking a day. Soon you will be adding steps to see how many you can do. Before you know it you will be checking to see how many miles you have walked in a day. WHAT A GREAT MOTIVATOR!!! The doctors keep telling me that I am disabled also, but I am a little hard headed and just keep on keepin' on. I only have one chance with this life and I am living it like I have to!!! I do what I can when I can!!!
    Stay focused and keep a positive attitude as this will be a great help to you in your daily life!!! Smile although sometimes that is the hardest, but it really helps!!! And, if nothing else, it makes people wonder what you're up to.
    It's good to meet and have you with us.
    God bless you in your new adventures.
    Hugs,
    Helen
