I am grateful!

I am 54. 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 54. 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: 30,955

Fitness Minutes: 62,500

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.

I have a FitBit. I lost it. Again. Lost it for 6 months, found it for three days, then lost it again. I have a lot of trouble keeping up with that little sucker! I have a cheaper pedo that I wear sometimes, and I know I at least get 10,000 steps on an average. On a really busy day, up to 12,000, without exercise.

Thanks for commenting on my blog, Cannie. No, I haven't been watching Project Runway this season. If I never start watching it, I don't feel compelled to to see it. It's just once I start, I can't stop! (same as with other things, hehe)

Thanks for reading my blog, Cannie! I'm happy you're doing well also. Hugs to you and keep up the good work. I decided to stay with the juice for the duration of the fast. The longer we stay on this journey, the better...at least I feel I'm getting more relaxed about the whole thing. emoticon
