Getting and Staying Healthy For Life

It has taken me a lifetime to get where I am today, it wasn't so fast!
I have been up & down on the scale so many times I just want it to end!
In 2009 my doctor told me I would have to take cholesterol meds to lower my cholesterol and then when the Long Term Health Care application was rejected because I was 20 lbs over their limit, I knew it was time again to try to get to a healthier weight. Besides, I hated how I looked in a pic!
Really to stay motivated isn't very easy ...

Really to stay motivated isn't very easy for me, I need a support system, and constant reminders. The weight creeps back in to my life when I don't keep my goals in check.
The SP Fitness Tracker is awesome, I love mapping the different routs we take. After logging my food I use the daily analysis, it is great to see that my eating and exercise was in sync or not!

Personal Information:
Walking, biking, aerobics, and strength training, are my favorite way to be active. Using the hula hoop is fun too, but I don't burn off many calories doing it. If you want to hula hoop, make sure it is as round as you are tall. A weighted one will help you keep going.
I am determined to stay motivated!
Everyone at SP is a great network for support and strength!
Since before we retired, my dear hubby and I have been walking for over 10 yrs and he is one of my best hiking & biking partners!

Other Information:
I am more determined than ever to get back to my goal weight. My DH & I celebrated 29 yrs of marriage this year and have been snowbirds for 4 yrs now. We are expecting our 5th grand baby this November. I am a self-taught knitter and crocheter. Just learning how to knit.

Love turmeric

Challenges keep me going.

You just did! When you find them online and around SparkLand, copy & paste.

I then sometimes rearrange what I find into different messages.
I keep them "saved" in a WordPad document.

Have a Happy Day today!
