I am grateful!

I am 55. I am learning to conquer disorderly eating. I embrace exercise and love to encourage others. My name is Carole (though I am quite attached to my Sparkname of Cannie which combines my first name and my middle name of Ann(ie). I happily answer to either name. I am married, a mother of four, and a grandmother of three beautiful g-babies. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am active - I walk, run, strength train and do other activities.

I am 55. I am learning to conquer disorderly eating. I embrace exercise and love to encourage others. My name is Carole (though I am quite attached to my Sparkname of Cannie which combines my first name and my middle name of Ann(ie). I happily answer to either name. I am married, a mother of four, and a grandmother of three beautiful g-babies. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am active - I walk, run, strength train and do other activities. Exercise has been part of my life for years. Food, not activity, has been my struggle. I am grateful to find support, encouragement, and knowledge through Sparkpeople. I am committed to losing 50 pounds of excess weight to lessen the burden on my body. I lost 30 lbs initially, kept it off for over a year, re-gained 20 and realize that weight doesn't keep itself off - it requires more vigilance than I was willing to maintain. I have fought this battle for so long, mostly on my own - Sparkpeople is a great blessing to me. My initial challenges are to be free of binge eating and disorderly eating in general, and to eat more nutritious foods, overall.

SparkPoints: 31,489

Fitness Minutes: 63,125

My Goals:
To continue to be active so I can stay active.
To offer support and encouragement to other Sparklers.
To continue my journey to better health and improved fitness on my way to a 50 lb weight loss. I fully intend to arrive at my goal weight of 143 lbs, and then focus on the work of maintenance.
Thy will be done.
I am learning to eat like a healthy adult.
One of the reasons I want to lose weight is to lessen the strain on my hard-working joints caused by excess weight.
TO SERVE AS AN INSPIRATION TO OTHERS WHO HAVE STRUGGLED AS I HAVE.
I am going to log enough fitness minutes in one year to help me drop 30 or more lbs of fat. Of course, it doesn't help as much unless I refrain from eating lg amt of useless calories, which undermines my hard work.


My Program:
Tracking nutrition & activity daily on SP

strength training 3x wk

hiking, walking, and/ or running 6 days per week

mixing things up: going up and down in my SP calorie range to keep my body "on it's toes" a little, plus lots of exercise one week, less the next, and making sure I get enough sleep which makes a big difference for me in terms of appetite, self-discipline, and weight

relying on SP for support (and finding it!!) thank you!

Blogging on SP several x per week-thank you for reading!

Personal Information:
I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

you are wise not to put any more energy into someone who can take care of themselves, than they are willing to spend on themselves, making their own life better - Mamadwarf aka Jan

Hi! You have gone missing!!

Sorry it took so long to reply to your message. I tried for a new job with my same company. They didn't go for it, but I did get a really nice pay raise, so all in all, not too bad. I am kind of thankful I didn't get the job, would have been a lot of travel and the dealing with a lot of negative issues.
Then I had to go to Dallas, TX. I thought it was hot here, but they had the same temperature, but a lot more humidity! I am enjoying the cooler weather we have had the past few days.
Hope the Hawaii trip was good!
We have decided to remodel the house, so I have been really busy going through all the crap I have accumulated over the past 16 years that we have lived in this house. It isn't just my body that has gained weight! I am a bit of a pack rat, saving things for years in case I need them. I have computer wires that I will never use that, laid end to end, would run from Portland to LA and back! I have adopted a more minimalist attitude and donating/tossing items has been very liberating and freeing.
Hope you are doing well and enjoying your summer!

Mike
