Working on my personal "game" of exercising regularly and eating consciously. I've tried several "diets" and have had the most success with SPARKPeople so I'm back at it. It's NOT as "sexy" and the results take longer but also last longer. This time I'm shooting for a lifestyle change and approach. Slow but steady as a turtle for the win.
Will attempt to win at strategies that challenge me: like when I get sick or have an injury. In the past, these have slayed me.
And last but not least "maintenance" once I lose the weight. I can get a lousy attitude and become complacent regarding my weight. Then I fall back into habits that don't support my healthy choices. So here we go.

Member Since: 1/2/2011

My Goals:
Lose 10#'s sensibly Goal date: April 1, 2019
Eat sensibly, by trying to simplify tracking.
Give up sugar by increasing natural sweets and replacing sweet eating behaviors, especially in the evening.

My Program:
1. Track food & water every day.
2. Learn to use groupings and favorites to make tracking easier.
3. Read Spark emails every day.
4. Walk every day.

Personal Information:
I'm a California Girl who was born in Tennessee. I'm crazy about being active and it's tough as I age to realize and adapt to my limitations. I love to use my large motor muscles but I'm afraid of too much speed and heights. Luckily I'm fearless when it comes to water, including the ocean. Swimming in the ocean makes me feel like I'm 13yrs old again. I have 4 children and many grandsons. I love reading a lot! I'm married to an awesome poet and we have a ton of fun together.

Other Information:
Book I am currently reading: "Blood and Thunder, by Hampton Sides. Tedious details! but I'm hanging in.

Fav movie this month: Dr. Zhivago I had never seen it

Motto: "So live in love, Do your work, Make an end of your sorrows. Buddha

"Lucky in Love, is the best kind of luck." Me

    Thanks for the goodies, valentines was great, but the good news is your Californian sunshine made it here today!

    Oh and I am now the proud owner of a rather spectacular scarf!

    Thank you so much it is gorgeous, I love it! And the colours are outstanding, they match a hat that I haven't worn for ages as I couldn't find a scarf I liked to go with! Now I have one from my best Spark Friend! Thank you again.

    I'll post a piccy when I get the laptop working. But thanks again!
