Cut Back on those Alcohol Calories !

My name is Valerie and I am a Christian in my 50's with 50 pounds to lose. I have a wonderful supportive sweetheart and two awesome grown sons. I've lost 40 pounds so far by mainly limiting my alcohol intake. Alcohol has so many unhealthy, unnecessary calories and avoiding it has been KEY for me . . . My longest alcohol-free streak was 107 days in which I lost 14 pounds, but I just take it "one day at a time".

My Goals:
I want to take care of the body God has given me so that I can live a long and healthy life.

I need to lose 50 pounds to get down to 155 and then I want to maintain in the 150's.

I have about 10 more pounds to go. Is it true that the last 10 pounds is the hardest to lose ?

My Program:
Only with the strength of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, can I resist the temptation of over-indulging in alcohol, and all those unhealthy extra calories. I will continue to eat lots of fruits and veggies and walk every day. I've always needed plenty of sleep and I will drink lots and lots of water. Mostly I will be grateful to God for all HIS blessings and my wonderful life.



Personal Information:
My name is Valerie and I'm 56 years young. I have a wonderful sweetheart and we live on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. I also have two grown sons who are awesome. I'm retired from the medical field. I love my life and it keeps getting better all the time.

Other Information:
I have had success with SP without tracking my food. Mainly I have avoided alcohol and walked a lot. My favorite part of SP is taking photos and writing blogs about them, especially of things I cook and bake, like my own little online cooking class. I started my own team in the Spring of 2014 "Lovely Ladies" but it hasn't been as active as I had hoped. If you're a lady over 40, please join us ! We'd love to get to know you.
