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.

    Hello Lady,

    Thanks for my 'Spa' Goodie. It is getting so cold here, the joints are in need of a little TLC. We could sure use some of that good ole Southern California weather here. emoticon

    I hope you are having a good week and keeping up the momentum. Sparking right along. emoticon

    ~~Hello Lovely Lady!~~

    Just crusin' Spark pages and noticed your page. I certainly understand the loss of a sibling. My brother (whom was my best friend) passed away November 2012. It has been a year and I miss him dearly. Then my father passed away this November 2013 and even at this very moment the loss is super emotional!

    I see it is your 5th year with Sparkpeople. I think I've been in and out of here for about three years. How about you and I collaborate to finally make our dreams come true? Holla back andlet me know if you are game to make this happen...once and for all. emoticon emoticon

    ~Peace~
