BigT-On the Road Again

So here I am starting over again from square one. My life has been a series of ups and downs for the last 13 years...some big, some small...this down is a very low one indeed.
I have had to re-adjust my sails many times during this time. I have made it through some pretty tough storms, but I am starting to wear down from the fight.
When I joined Sparks 6 years ago, I was a broken person...both mentally and physically. The support of the wonderful people I met here helped me ...

When I joined Sparks 6 years ago, I was a broken person...both mentally and physically. The support of the wonderful people I met here helped me to heal. I lost weight and gained my confidence again.
Then another series of events 3 years ago turned my life not only upside down, but sideways. I have tried to make several restarts, but I just can't seem to get back that old enthusiasm.
I hope this time will be the charm. I have got to get off this weight off and get my life back. It is going to be tough due to recent knee surgery, but I will never succeed if I don't get started.

Fitness Minutes: 92,269

My Goals:
I joined SP in July, 2008, lost 46 lbs. and was doing a good job of keeping it off...until May of 2010. That is when my world as I knew it ceased to be. In just two short months I had to change jobs (after 30 years), change states (after 53 years) and leave all my family behind. I put back on 20+ of those hard fought lbs. I am trying to get a handle on my eating (and my attitude) once again. I want to lose this "Ohio" weight, I just need to find my motivation again.

My Program:
I am going to track my food and get my 8+ glasses of water a day. I plan to ride my bike as much as I can. I have gotten myself into the habit of riding my bike or walking to do my errands. I love to walk, but I will have to take that slow for a while since having my knee surgery. I just recently found a water exercise program that I will be starting as soon as I get my doctor's okay.

Personal Information:
I am from a small town in the mountains of VA. I am 55 years young. I have two grown children, two beautiful granddaughters, one 8 years old and the other 3 months old. After working at the same place for almost 30 years, I had to transfer to keep my job. I had to move to another state after living in the same county for 53 years. I am learning to live on my own for the first time in my life.

Other Information:
I love to ride my bicycle, go to the beach, and play with my granddaughters as much as possible. I especially like it when I can do all three at the same time!
I love reading good mysteries, watching British mystery shows, and listening to good rock music...old or new.

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again - Author unknown
