2009

I joined Sparkpeople in July of 2006. When I had lost almost 50 pounds by January 2007, I decided to give thanks for my newly found good health by doing something for someone else. I made a goal to walk the Avon Beast Cancer Walk in charlotte, NC on Oct. 20-21. Well, I did that! I reached my goal and surpassed my greatest expectations! What a wonderful, fullfilling experience it was too.

I joined Sparkpeople in July of 2006. When I had lost almost 50 pounds by January 2007, I decided to give thanks for my newly found good health by doing something for someone else. I made a goal to walk the Avon Beast Cancer Walk in charlotte, NC on Oct. 20-21. Well, I did that! I reached my goal and surpassed my greatest expectations! What a wonderful, fullfilling experience it was too.

I did not reach all my goals in 2008 BUT I did my best and made progress in all of them. That is what counts, striding forward, one step at a time. Sometimes I even went backward but the important thing was to get back on track and go forward again.

1. Reach financial fitness. I have a plan and it is working. We are slowly paying off debt and should have all our credit cards paid off this year! Yeah!

2. Reach my weight goal. I went backwards on this one and I've gained. However, I'm taking that small step forward and I will make progress this year!

3. Crew the Charlotte Avon Breast Cancer Walk in OCt. 2009. I don't think my feet can make the walk this year as my arthritis is getting painful. I plan on vomunteering my time and skills to help my walk buddy raise her money and to help make the walk in Charlotte a success.

4. Be a more loving, supportive wife. Smile when I'm tired and crabby. It's not his fault. Stop being so critical and be more appreciative of his good traits. After all, those are the things I married him for.

These resolutions are not easy but with the confidence that Sparkpeople has given me I know I can do it. Thank you Sparkpeople!


Other goals I plan on reaching this year are reaching out to new friends. I plan on going south to FL to visit Ma and west to meet my friend Janice. It's neat having friends all over the country and the world.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women 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"
