Hello. I have been a Spark member since January 2010 yet I have made NO progress in effectively changing my life. I work and make a few pounds of progress them I fall down and the pounds all return. So I'm here, to declare before my peers, that I am going to keep trying. I cannot give up! I must win this battle for health and emotional well-being.

Member Since: 1/20/2010

Fitness Minutes: 9,182

My Goals:
My 2013 Goal is for a healthy New Me!

1. I want to be active in my Spark Teams.

2. Lose 10% of my current body weight. 217-21.7=195.3. Plan--5 pounds of weight loss per month for 6 months, then evaluate the progress/

3. I really hate logging stuff--what can I do?
I will log fitness minutes and try to get moving!

My Program:
I am still working on making positive changes in my life. I will work to:
1. Keep my calories in my range--preferably at the lower end of the range.
2. Be more committed to exercise. I will strive for walking every day--out side or the treadmill.
3. Add in strength training or core exercises 2 times a week.
4. Daily devotion time with the Lord, 10-15 minutes.
5. Improve the appearance of my house both inside and outside.
NEW: January goal is to clean my laundry room.

    Saw you commented on my blog after I'd already gone to your page. thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Yes, it takes time to heal from everything spiritually, physically and emotionally. But day-by-day it happens!

    Maintenance . . . it's work, but soooooo worthwhile! You'll get there. It all takes time, right!?!

    Thanks for your good wishes for my son wounded in Afghanistan. Prayers are really what had given us a miracle I believe.

    He is now walking without a cane! He is still in Alaska. He now has a desk job, taking classes, doing Army classes and keeping busy, besides his physical therapy. So, all good. He wil hopefully be home sometimes in December, so that will be the first we'll be able to see him.

    Thanks again.
