I am in my early 50's and need to lose alot of weight. But I want to do it the healthy way so I can stick with it the rest of my life. No more fad diets or old ways. It is time for me to change once and for all. And now I think I really am ready, I want to be healthy more than I want to eat something that tastes good but is not good for me.

Udate: I am 51 lbs closer to my goal and I am loving it and Spark and love all the friends here who are helping me get to my goals!

Update: I joined the Tangerine Spring Melt off Challenge 2/22/13 and I am going to have more wonderful Sparkers guiding me and challenging me towards my goals.

Member Since: 8/13/2012

Fitness Minutes: 14,005

My Goals:
I was hopin to lose 5 lbs by my birthday and I hit that one already so my next goal is to put fitness into my daily life. Started the counting steps today, hope to be making the goal of 10,000 per week soon. Then we will set a new one. Altimatly I want to loose 150lbs. Yikes

My Program:
I am on the diabetic diet so I am keeping under my calories and staying in the guidlines of the plan and reading all the labels, tracking & measuring & weighing things. Giving up that just throwing anything in my mouth whether it is good for me or not. One meal at a time.

Personal Information:
I am in my early 50's, 5'9" and way to heavy to give my weight #, LOL. I have dark brown hair and eyes. I love to email more than talk on the phone so if you want to email me I can use all the support I can get as well as be support to you.

Other Information:
I am not a big reader but I love movies. My favorite movie in the fall is to kill a mocking bird. I am a sap for all the corny holiday movies. I love to garden and grow flowers. It is amazing what comes out of a tiny seed. I am a christian and Love Jesus,God, HS but I have many friend who are not.
I am a people person so the more people in my day the happier I am. I love to help people when I can, and I am loyal to a ll friends and family.

    I like your comment about wanting to be healthy more than wanting to eat something that is not good for you. It took me awhile to learn that, but it is an important part of my mind set now.

    Thanks Lois. I am really happy to be here and I am finding what I need to make the change I am now ready to make. This place needs to be on billboards, radio,to it is a place I plan to spend alot of time at making the changes I need to make. Somehow it is easier to open up to people online more than in person, and that is one big change I need to make to make this place work for me. Your comments are appreciated. emoticon

    I stopped by the staff page to ask a question and saw your thank-comment for this free this site. I wanted to welcome you and wish you well on your new journey. I noticed that you gave thanks to God, and I dare say that that is why you have such a cool username. You will find, as you look around this site, that there are a lot of encouraging Christians and also a bunch of Christian teams. I trust that you will find the tools, motivation, and encouragement that are just what you've been looking for!

    Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

    1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

    2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

    The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!
