My SparkPeople journey begins with the goal of transforming myself into the person I want to be through good health practices and personal growth goals. It is a holistic change - mind, body, spirit. It will be a transformation of who I am as well as the way I look. This journey will be one of self love.

4/23 - I have learned so much from Spark People. I am grateful for all who contribute in anyway. I thrive because of all the sharing that goes on.

I plan to expand my SparkPage. I want it to be meaningful to all who visit. Right now it is not. I plan to model mine after Karvy09's SparkPage with my own goals and achievements. It will take a while for me to build it.

Since joining SP on March 1st my motivation has changed. I was almost competitive in my motivation. I wanted to prove that I could reach my set goals to show off to others. Now I have grown as a person. I realize that I have goals to achieve and in my achieving them I am creating a healthy life for me. It is all about me having a healthy life not about meeting a goal that once attained will leave me empty. I have to reach goals set to get to continuous good health and the goals are just guideposts. There always needs to be some guideposts. I think this is a breakthough in thinking for me.

Member Since: 3/1/2010

Fitness Minutes: 7,764

My Goals:
These are my long term goals:

- To become a healthy person physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually with a goal of reaching 150 pounds by November 2011.

-To make good health a way of life for me through good nutrition practices, proper exercise and general self-care.

- To identify and find a career that will give me challenges but yet provide me the opportunity to live a balanced lifestyle.

- To be able to share my journey to benefit others.

My Program:
I need to lose about 110 pounds to reach 150lbs. To meet these goals I am:

Participating daily in SP.

Exercising to burn at least 1800 calries per week.

Measuring progress through body measurements and self assessment.

Listening daily to motivational music .

Keeping a wall calendar of daily achievement of nutrition and exercise commitments.

Reviewing a vision collage that allows me to see how I will look once I reach my goal weight and how my life will change (career, relationships, age perception, etc.)

Personal Information:

My name is Ellen.

I am from Boston but have been spending winters in Florida (which I love). I am thinking of staying here all year in order to focus on my health program. It seems easier down here.

I am widow (10 yrs) and loved being married. I would love to have another strong marriage or companion, if destiny allows.
