I'm truly motivated to obtain a stronger and healthier body, making myself physically fit once again. I'm certain that I can accomplish this goal because I've seen so many others achieve success with this. No need for stress or messiness...just have fun and enjoy my life one day at a time. All I need to do is to consume simple meals everyday and no eating in between except for a late evening snack because on my diabetes. I'm committing to an exercise regime everyday... sometimes twice a day when I am able.

I've met some fantastic and motivating people here on SPARK PEOPLE; the more friends I make here, the happier I am. My friends help to keep me on the right track while on this fitness and health journey. No doubt, while eating healthy and trying my best to improve in fitness, I will eventually have weight success as well. This could be considered a dream for many people, but I have come to realize that it need not be a dream at all. It has happened to others, and I know that it can happen to me as well.

I am a widow, and I have one living child, and 7 grandchildren. I had another daughter who unfortunately passed away two years ago. Thankfully I am blessed to be the grandmother to her children, in addition to being a grandmother to the three children for my daughter who is still living. I love my family but I often miss out on having the fun with them I'd like to, because my body is not as fit and healthy as it could be.

It is past the time for me to seriously consider my own fitness and to finally live the healthy lifestyle that I should. Motivation and encouragement works for me, which is the reason I'm back at S/P. There is so much to learn from other people in the S/P community. I realize that it is a struggle to keep motivated and walk a straight and narrow path all the time. But here at SPARKPEOPLE is where I hope to be refreshed daily with the right amount of motivation needed to lead to me success in my weight loss journey..
Hope you will walk with me, so we can help each other keep to a nice and productive path while on the journey.

    “The magic that turns dreams into reality is YOU!
    When you are inspired by a dream, create a good plan; that turns it into a goal.
    Then, live your life in a way that will bring that dream, that goal, to life. The magic is you.”

    Hi Carolyn, thank you for the sunshine goodie, we could sure use some of that warmth here! There is snow in the forecast for this weekend but they're not sure yet if we'll get any accumulation or not.

    Sorry you are having such pain! I have been praying for you and will continue. Don't worry about the workout challenge! You don't have to do anything on the team that you don't want to. Just take care of you! I'm hoping you have some pain free days soon!

    Hugs,
    Pixie
