Weight issues have been part of my life since I was little. It was hard to be a curvy teen when Twiggy was the model of the day! I always seem to find my favorite clothing stops one size below whatever I am able to wear.

SO...I am working on myself...my bad habits need to become good ones. My blood sugars need to be back under control.

Update 2011 ~ My scale is not showing progress, and it is not the fault of the scale. Today I will reset my tracker. I AM healthier and more knowledgeable than I was when I started. I MUST recommit though if I am going to achieve my goals. So, FRESH START today.

Update, September 13, 2015. As of this morning, the first day after a 12 day vacation, I have lost 3 more pounds and surpassed my original goal. What a shock to realize that. I have reset my goal for another ten pounds. I am not in a hurry, but am pleased with my progress.

Update November 11, 2017
I am walking at least a minimum of 12000 steps a day including 10 flights of stairs. I am astonished to find myself bouncing around at and just below the goal set for me by Weight Watchers around 1973! Got there but couldn't stay there. NEVER expected to see those numbers again! Other than my problematic blood sugars, I am in excellent health, staying active EVERY day and am one HAPPY girl!

My Goals:
1) Better health..lower blood sugar

2) fit clothing better..lower dress size and perhaps, fit my 40 yr old wedding gown! [2017 update} Dress is now way too big. I never did get to even try it on when weight was close...sailed right by.]

3) Feel good, like how I look


My Program:
1. Take it one day at a time
2. Do the absolute best I can
3. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

    Asta, welcome to Spark! What a treat to hear from a fellow crucian! I don't think there are too many on this site; at least none that I have found. I am sure that Spark will be a great resource for you as it has been for me. The folks here are so supportive and encouraging. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me or anyone else. By the way, where do you live now? Betcha it's not as warm and sunny ... just guessing from the clothes in the picture. :)
