Year #5 and it's still all about me!

This is my fifth year with SparkPeople and it's been an amazing journey. I've learned a lot about me, met new friends (on-line and off) and am embarking on this new lifestyle.

I start each day with a blank sheet and I try to make the best decisions for me during the day. I cannot say it has been an easy ride because life happens and sometimes I get sidetracked and/or frustrated.

Cooking healthy meals and exercise has become a big part of this healthy lifestyle and I feel so much better (mentally and physically). My stamina has increased as the numbers on the scale decrease.

This year I need to focus on me and my well being. Last year was a very tough year and I got off track. I'm so glad that I found this site and it looks like a winner. I'm looking forward to working with the different teams to meet my goal.

Member Since: 1/15/2009

My Goals:
My goal is to really learn this time. I need to stop yo-yoing and change my life style; not just lose weight.

My Program:
Even before joining SparkPeople, I had started counting calories and walking. I realize that I need to incorporate different types of exercises into my life. I bought a stability ball and have it at my desk at work.

Personal Information:
I am the second daughter of a minister (whom I really love); I'm 58 years old; happily divorced with one adult son and a daughter-in-law. I have a small dog whom I adore. I've worked at the same company for 27 years and will probably have to work 27 more before I can afford to retire. :-))

Other Information:
It's been more than 5 years since I lost my youngest sister to pancreatic cancer (September 2008). I still miss her immensely; because of her, I joined SparkPeople. She introduced me to the site in 2007. I have made some wonderful Spark friends on-line and in person.

    Thanks for stopping by my page and commenting on my blog. I find the Spark Activity Tracker highly encouraging - even though it never says a word. I treated myself with one for my birthday. I think it is one of the best gifts I've ever gotten. emoticon
