Live Right

My profile photo is hiding a big secret (which I've been hiding from myself as well). I teetered for a very long time at the outer limits of "overweight," but I have now gone over the line into "obese." I'm shocked and my feelings are hurt, but in a way it's refreshing to hear the truth. You would think that at age 57 (and a half), I would have overcome my problems with food, but alas it hasn't happened. So I'm here today to make some changes and learn to live right!

Fitness Minutes: 80

My Goals:
My main goal is to be healthy in body and spirit so that I can live the right kind of life. For mental health, my goal is to become free of food obsessions, to stop feeling guilty for every single mistake, and to stop using food as a way to avoid what's important. Instead, I want to use food as a means to become healthy and to enjoy precious time with my family.

My Program:
I'm looking for inspiration on everybody's SparkPage. It's fun and educational and takes my mind off food! I really love reading other people's stories.

Personal Information:
I'm from a tiny town in Georgia (with no traffic lights), but now I live in Japan. I'm happy to have become active in the SparkPeople community, which feels a lot like home.

Other Information:
After a year of making excuses (I'm too old, my knees hurt, etc.), I have started exercising again. I feel better already!

Hello my friend, thanks for the visit to my blog and the encouragement. I'm on a mission to make a streak of walking daily-outside of lawn mowing. I also decided I'd get back to tracking my food. We know that the two together can make beautiful music and result in a healthier, slimmer us.

"Beautiful Person Award"

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Person Award!!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 people who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out.

Again, Congratulations Beautiful!
