I'm Back!

Hi!

I have been a member of SparkPeople since November of 2008 but have been absent for quite awhile and have recently come back. I am a 59 year-old woman and have lots of weight that I need to lose. I am blessed that my best friend and roommate is also on SparkPeople and we are doing it together! It helps so much to have support right here on the homefront! However, we can all use all the support we can get so if you need a cheerleader, I will be here for you!

I have LOTS of weight to lose so I will be on here daily!

I wish everyone great success in your weight-loss goals.

Member Since: 11/28/2008

SparkPoints: 11,076

Fitness Minutes: 310

My Goals:
My general weight loss goal is to make small goals and reach them one at a time and not beat myself up or set unrealistic goals!

My life goal is to fulfill what the Lord has called me to do and to make a difference in the lives of others.

Specific Short-term Goals:
*Get off some meds for BP and Diabetes.
*Have more energy.
*Be able to shop for clothes in a regular store.

Specific Long-Term Goals:
Get off ALL meds for Diabetes and BP.
Have energy to do what I want to do.
Reach my goal weight and maintain for life.

My Program:
Eat less.
Eat healthier.
Exercise 15 minutes a day to begin and gradually increase that.
Stay positive and motivated!
Support others.
Ask for support when I need it.

Personal Information:
I recently graduated from the University of Central Florida with a BS degree in Psychology and a Certificate in Victim Advocacy. I am currently looking for a job that will utilize these and hopefully allow me to work with victims as an advocate. I want to make a big difference in the lives of others.

Other Information:
My favorite book is the Bible. My favorite movie is "Pay It Forward" because of the message. It is a message that needs to be spread all over. I love watching anything educational like the Discovery channel, the History channel and the Travel channel. On the lighter side, I love The Golden Girls, The Cosby Show and Frazier.

For I have come to have much joy and comfort in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you ~ Philemon 1:7.

I rejoice over you. As I prepare to close out my account with Spark People on the 12th, I want you to know that God has used you to refresh my heart and I have found much joy and comfort in your loving ways and caring presence. You will be in my heart and in my prayers as I take up my cross daily to follow Jesus. Keep up the good work, beloved. God bless you on your way.

Blessings and emoticon

“The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
-John C. Maxwell

Get ready for a healthy week, Sparkfriend! You know what you want, and you know what you need to do in order to make it happen...so just do it! Push yourself, even if you don't feel like it...because you really are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."

"Making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually, you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
-Stephen Cherniske
