My Goals:
I'm moving my oldest daughter to college this fall, alma mater of both her father and me, and would love to be fit when I meet up with family and friends in the area. More importantly, I want to be a good example to my children.

My Program:
I try to track each and every day. When I find that I can't, I immediately log on the very next morning. I'm finding a variety of ways to get in strength training and cardio, and it's been FUN!

Thank you for stopping by my page to comment. You are right about the sense of humor. I firmly believe a life without smiles is no life for me to live. I am glad that you find inspriation in my journey. If I can help just one person along the way, it is worth every moment of my time.

I am so glad to read that even though you munched today, you chose the healthier alternatives. I have to admit. I still crave the junk. It does not help that my teenage boys are always begging for fast food instead of home cooked meals (I often wonder what that says about my cooking. LOL).

I look forward to walking the journey to a leaner healthier lifestyle with you.

It has been a couple of weeks since you joined SparkPeople, and I wanted to come by and check on you. How are you doing? Do you have any questions? If you need me, please leave a comment on my SparkPage, send me a SparkMail, or post your question in the SparkTeam 'SP Class of April 25- May 1, 2010'. I get an email every time a new topic is created in there.

Just for follow up, remember these quick and easy tips:

1) Take it slow. Fast weight loss does not last. You are here because you want to lose weight and keep it off. Be patient with yourself and your results.

2) Use the community aspect of SparkPeople. You will find many friends and tons of motivation on your teams and the message boards.

3) Blog. It may be nothing more than "I ate too much today, but tomorrow will be better". If you post a blog daily, your friends will learn more about you, learn what motivation you need, and the important part is that YOU will end up MOTIVATING someone!

4) Get in small bursts of activity. I stop and do jumping jacks for 1 minute several times a day. It is not a lot, but it does not have to be a lot, especially in the beginning.
