BigT-On the Road Again

New Year, New Start! Time to re-adjust my sails once again.
When I joined Sparks 7 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 my life not only got upside down, but sideways and has been a whirling ever since. It has taken me a long time to come to grips with all these ever evolving changes. Tomorrow starts another of these changes, but ...
New Year, New Start! Time to re-adjust my sails once again.
When I joined Sparks 7 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 my life not only got upside down, but sideways and has been a whirling ever since. It has taken me a long time to come to grips with all these ever evolving changes. Tomorrow starts another of these changes, but I hope this one will help instead of hurt my chances of success with getting my life straightened out.
I have a new position at work. I will be working Monday through Friday/8 hour days. I haven't worked that since 1982. I have worked shift work for so long, that I am not sure my body will know what is going on. Half of that time it was 12 hour shifts.
I hope getting on this schedule will allow me to stay on track with my exercise and my eating. Shift work is so hard on both of these. My journey starts tomorrow...wish me luck!

Member Since: 7/11/2008

SparkPoints: 64,872

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 also have been going to an arthritis water exercise class and I have joined a gym. Both are within biking distance.

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.

Thank you for reading and leaving a comment on my blog, this MSG should be banned and I can't understand why the powers that be don't make it illegal to add to food
