After looking at the other profile pic last week, I realized how drained I looked with that dark hair. I am going to brighten my look, and my attitude. So far, this new hair color is giving me lift!

I am really going to try and do this the right way!

Rosemary Conley was right when she said, "Nothing tastes as good as being slim feels!" Yet??? I think I remember slim?

Whatever you're thinking about is literally like planning a future event. When you're worrying, you are planning. When you're appreciating you are planning...What are you planning?

(6 months on Spark, down 12 lbs) happy!

I joined Spark April 2008. But, it was literally months before I even looked at the site. I made a minimal effort and then forgot all about the site. Fortunately, the emails kept coming, and for a long time I would just delete them, but the persistence finally paid off, because one day I was feeling so bummed out about the extra pounds I was adding each month, and I thought, 'that Spark site keeps sending me emails, maybe I should check it out'.

So off I went, I came back here and started up again. That was in March of 2009. I have been involving myself more and more each month. (well, minus the 2 months I was off-line) but otherwise I keep plugging away.

I set a long term goal to loose 20lbs. I had in mind that I would easily accomplish this by loosing 1 lb a week. I found a group of women in my age bracket (50+) who had the same goal in mind, and I am so glad that I found them, because I immediately realized that losing 1 lb a week was not as easy as it had been when I was in my 30's. I have had great support from that group and I hope I have been helpful also.

Anyway, I began to do pilates for 20 minutes a day and doing that 3x a week. I don't mind the exercises, but for some weird reason, I just lost my momentum, and finally I quit. I am going to try again, same goal and same easy to do dvd (that I actually like). Thanks for all of my friends here, you all mean alot!

My Program:
The longer I am affiliated with Spark.com, the more excited I get about coming here. I just watched the Inspiration Video on here and learned how and why this site was created. I recommend everyone view that!

As far as a program, I think for me the main part is me just showing up here, and allowing the gentleness of this site, the members, and the awesome staff who run this site to do its magic. The rest will fall into place for me. Sort of like me getting out of my own way.

    Thanks for stopping by my SparkPage and leaving a comment.

    Yes, this is my 60th year of life and will reach 60 in November. Some days I definitely feel 60 and other days I just feel like a little girl in an older body.

    Been maintaining for over 5 months. Successful so far, but not always smooth. Still must remind myself to get back on track as the old lifestyle is very appealing some days.

    Take good care of yourself; love who/how you are; and enjoy this journey. What a gift!!!!

    Love the new hair color...so did you color it or just adjust the color of the photo to match what you like?? Wouldn't that be great for "real life?"
