Hi there. I need to lose 75lbs (again) and am no longer looking for quick fixes but for a way to eat healthier and stay motivated through the long process its going to take. I love to eat (or I wouldn't be here LOL), hate to exercise (help!) read, travel, go to movies, and socialize with friends. Im 49, single, have a 29 year old daughter a 10 year old grandaughter, both who live with me and my cats, in Toronto, Canada. Im turning the big 50 this year and have planned a European vacation this June with my girlfriend to visit 7 countries and the last thing I want is to be overweight and out of shape for this once in a lifetime vacation!
The one thing i've learned is that I can't do it alone, so with the help of my spark friends and my awesome sparkteam, this is the year for a healthier leaner new me!

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 75 lbs by eating healthier and moving more.

My Program:
Since every diet known to man has failed to keep this weight off I have committed myself to eating healthier. I also hate to exercise and have very painful knees so am removing the clothes from the gazelle and dusting off my total gym and pledge to use them at least 3 times a week.

Personal Information:
My name is Vera, im 47 and I live in Toronto Canada with my daughter, granddaughter and 3 cats!

Other Information:
Favorite quote: "And this too shall pass" as well as "Why put off for tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow" (hence the need for motivation!)

    Hi, Vera! I truly hope you're still out here somewhere making a difference in your own life.

    Every once in a while, my dreams are filled with prayer and reassurance and I wake up singing (I know, weird... but it's such an amazing feeling!). This morning was one of those mornings... I woke myself up singing, and now it's on my heart to sing to you... "Listen, my people! Your hopes are answered. Listen, and hear my voice. Your hopes are answered. YOUR hopes are ANSWERED!"

    I pray in the echoes and shadows of your day, you SEE that YOUR HOPES are answered.
