Hello everyone.
I am here because I plan to develop a healthy way of eating that will enable me to lose weight (all 65 pounds of it!) and then keep it off! I also want to be a role model for my grandchildren and provide tasty, healthy food that will appeal to them.

I am married with three grown children. I have three delightful grandchildren (18 years, 15 years, and a 10 year old - two girls and a boy) who make me laugh and keep me up to date on the 'latest' news. They also make me feel like a celebrity whenever they see me or come to visit! They give great hugs!

Here is my thought for the day:

The secret of making something work in your lives is, first of all, the deep desire to make it work; then the faith and belief that it can work; then to hold that clear definite vision in your consciousness and see it working out step by step, without one doubt or disbelief.

My Goals:
To reach my goal weight of 125 pounds. Then keep it off.

Personal Information:
I live in Courtenay, BC. We decided to downsize and be mortgage free. This we did and are enjoying our patio home surrounded by a park with a river running nearby. We have wonderful neighbours, are five minutes walking time from the town, and 5 min driving time to our church.

Other Information:
"Failure is only the opportunity to begin again, this time more wisely."

"Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek." Mario Andretti

    Hi Yvonne! Glad to have you on the Motivation team with me. Sounds like you have a good plan in place. Me? I'm just trying to make small changes, a little at a time. Baby steps! I have been doing well with the calorie range, for the most part, and the 8-12 glasses of water is not a problem. The exercise is coming, slowly but surely. I refuse to over commit and then burn out.
    Good luck with your goals and I look forward to chatting with you on the boards!
    Have a good one!
