Enough is enough! I am tired of being fat and tired and hurting all the time! I want to be able to keep up with my very active grandchildren! I have gained back almost everything I worked so hard to lose! I am determined to get it done this time and keep it off!

Member Since: 6/15/2009

Fitness Minutes: 165

My Goals:
My goals are to get fit in 2011.
I want to exercise more and find what really works for me so I will like it and stick to it!
I am going to continue to journal my food not only for the calories, but to keep on top of eating healthier!

My Program:
I count calories, and I use the food journal here. I know I have to journal what I eat or I don't do well!

Personal Information:
I am from upstate New York.
I am wife, mother and grandmother of 6.
I spend a lot of time with my grandchildren, they help keep me young!
I work as a bus monitor for special needs preschoolers. These children become like extra grandchildren to me!

Other Information:

I Bette Jo Payne will continue this journey for better health and weight loss.

1. I will work on changing the things I can change. I will not allow the things I cannot change to keep me from my destination.
2. When my husband is having a stressful day at work and comes home in a bad mood, I will not allow his mood to cause me to stray from journey.
3. I will continue to use my food journal every day and post it. Good or Bad!
4. I will start an exercise journal. I will exercise at least 5 days a week!
5. I will find more time for myself. I will learn to say “NO” to things I really don’t want to do, but feel are expected of me to do.
6. I will offer support, motivation and inspiration to my friends here on Spark People.
7. I will continue my quest to try to get my husband to become healthier, but I will not push it. If he decides he wants my help I will give it to him, but if he doesn’t want it, I will back off. I will focus on my own g
