On the road to good health

The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. It will be a fun ride!

Like countless others, I have struggled with my weight for decades. Dealing with it seemed like something I can get to eventually. Oh I have been on diets galore. I dieted to lose weight. Sure I would drop several pounds and feel good. Inevitably I always put the weight back on and then some.

But this time things are different. It is about getting the wake up call. Yupper... ...
The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. It will be a fun ride!

Like countless others, I have struggled with my weight for decades. Dealing with it seemed like something I can get to eventually. Oh I have been on diets galore. I dieted to lose weight. Sure I would drop several pounds and feel good. Inevitably I always put the weight back on and then some.

But this time things are different. It is about getting the wake up call. Yupper... the call came alright. Was I surprised? Heck no. Was it the hardest call ever? Heck yes! So now I am dealing with what I should have dealt with years ago. I will not dwell on the past. I am here and living in the present. I have a lot of weight to lose. My sights are on the first 50! More importantly, my sights are on changing my life for good! Virtuous cycles all the way!

SparkPoints: 15,568

Fitness Minutes: 6,784

My Goals:
My goal is to eat to live. Healthy living and healthy eating habits are my main concern after years and years of doing the opposite. In practical terms, my goals are:
1. Drink 8 glasses of water a day
2. Maintain weight loss of 1 to 2 lbs/week
3. Eat 5 times/per day focusing on low carb and high fiber choices
4. Get strength training in 3 times/week, get about 30 minutes of cardio EVERYDAY

I hope to run a 5K someday. Right now it is a distant dream.


My Program:
My program is all about long term, sustainable healthy eating based on good, healthful habits. I am arming myself with knowledge and information. I am tracking everything I eat and tracking my fitness using Sparkpeople recommendations.

Personal Information:
I live in Southwestern Connecticut with my husband of 12 years and our 2 sons. I work for a large consumer products company and I love what I do.

Other Information:
I live my life by a very simple motto... if God brings you to it, He will bring your through it. You may not be able to change the wind but you can always adjust your sails. I try to make the best out of any situation. My joy and energy comes from my family, from my friends, and my work. I enjoy New York Yankees baseball, cheering hard for my children at their baseball games. I enjoy entertaining, reading and Sparkpeople. I love the support I get from my Spark Friends.

Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends and fireworks. *~ Paula *~

"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism." (Erma Bombeck)
