The Biggest Journey

I'm a 59 year old woman who is finally and forever done with unhealthy habits. I've lost probably over 1,000 pounds in my life on every diet plan imaginable and it took me until now to realize I have to do this for myself, with myself and by myself and figure out what works for me. I guess I'm a slow learner, but better late than never and this time it will stick. I need to lose a person and I know it will take some time, but this time I'll learn what I need to know to make success last ...

SparkPoints: 20,961

Fitness Minutes: 15,505

My Goals:
When I started I had over 100 pounds to lose which at my age takes a long time. I've lost 28 in about 2 1/2 months and am inspired to kick it up a notch and keep it going.

My Program:
Eating lots of produce, eating virtually no convenience (chemical-laden) or fast foods, adding more daily activity to my life. I'm tracking my caloric expenditures with a Bodymedia Fit arm band.

Personal Information:
We live in Parish, NY and have a summer place in Clayton, NY in the 1000 islands. I'm tired of snow and cold and look forward to moving to a warmer climate when I retire in a few years.

Other Information:
I used to train and compete in dog agility before work got in the way. That helped to keep me active in spite of my weight but now my dogs are all old and past their competition years. I got my marine captain's license a few years ago and we enjoy our boat on the St. Lawrence River all summer.

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

“The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
-Michael Josephson

Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
-Jillian Michaels
