Chugging along towards my goal. Trying to renovate our second bathroom in six months and it has been the usual avenue of stress and unexpected bumps in the road.

Chugging along towards my goal. Trying to renovate our second bathroom in six months and it has been the usual avenue of stress and unexpected bumps in the road. I'm about to have surgery at the end of December and hope to be at my goal weight before then. It is amazing how being at a normal weight can change your entire life. I've never felt stronger and it is a pure delight. I have parted company with seventy-five pounds. I wish such success for everyone here. It could happen. Thanks for reading, Party on!!!!!!! You have my best, Holly

October 1, 2014
I am doing well, my weight is lower than it has been since my early twenties and I feel younger and more capable than I have in years. I do not hold onto grudges and I have redirected my obsessive overeating to smaller healthier portions and choices. My reason for eating now is to have a better quality of life. I feel this is a great gift I have discovered within myself and I intend to cherish it with much gusto. Laughing and rolling with the punches is a big part of this. I reorganize life as a rocky road at times and I best buckle my seat belt and make the best of it, whether I'm experiencing a drama, comedy or tragedy. There is great strength and satisfaction in getting to a healthier weight and staying there for the rest of your life! That's my plan.
So, I now truly enjoy life, sand traps and all. I allow myself to be silly and take pride in not acting my age. It's a blast!!!!!!! Try it!

SparkPoints: 19,290

Fitness Minutes: 5,280

My Goals:
It is my goal to rid myself of 18 more pounds and keep myself centered and better balanced. I know I can do this, as I have done in the past, however this time I want to be able to handle maintenance with greater success and understanding of the health benefits. I must trust myself and filter out the unnecessary negative chatter in the world.

My Program:
My exercise either walking, swimming, biking and horseback riding daily. 'Move it or lose it' daily! Food Tracker and Fitness Tracker are imperative as well as tracking my blood pressure and blood sugars. When I am not exercising I practice Mediatation to keep myself balanced with an inner peace. I also try to keep my caloric intake below 1100 calories from day to day with "NO EXCUSES". I take full responsibility for my actions and I laid all my excess baggage to rest. Forgiveness is the key to everything. It lightens you up ALL OVER!


Personal Information:
I am a Wellesley College graduate living outside Boston. I love all cats especially Siamese. My husband and I have rescued several. I always was crazy about horses but got too heavy for light horses so I moved over to draft horses for several years. I trained, exhibited, rode, drove and showed Clydesdale horses. Now, with the support of Sparkpeople I am of a more normal weight I have recently returned to light horses. I also enjoy the arts, creative writing, all forms of comedy and gardening. I am passionate about encouraging others to treat themselves better so they can enjoy the luxury of being a normal weight. I am also renovating a 1918 English colonial home with my husband.

Other Information:
I like to think everyone has the ability to get to a healthy weight and lifestyle at some point in their lives, only then are you are able to take control for your own happiness. It is a wonderful thing. I am finally learning to embrace the process hiccups and all. Many thanks to SPARKPEOPLE!

Turkey roasting on an open fire . . . oops . . . no . . . that's supposed to be chestnuts. BLECH! NO THANKS! LOL Horrid (to my taste anyway).

Hope you have a safe trip. Are you going to be able to go? Is the weather supposed to be horrid where you are? I see so many flights cancelled already for the east coast (Yeah, I know you're not flying, but the cancellations are due to the weather anticipated).

Stay safe. THINKING OF YOU ON DEMO DAY! Should have a hard hat emoticon!

HUGS, blessings, L, SB

We've rented the clubhouse at our community for Thanksgiving. We usually have between 30-35 for dinner. I am assigned to bring mashed potatoes and salad this year. My son's MIL is bringing turkey and someone else the ham. Every family brings a dish so there is lots to eat! I bought 2 11 pound turkeys one is going on the rotisserie as soon as the cold front moves through. Down to 42 tonight!! How many are you expecting?
We grilled a pizza before the rain got here, it was really good. I have been experimenting with various fruits and veggies, I have loved them all to date. I guess you are not grilling til summer now.
I gained a couple of pounds, thought it was water, but only lost 6/10th of a pound. I am going to be very careful tomorrow! How are you doing?

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!!

You are too funny! I went thru that too. NOT FUN!

Yup, going to Mom and Dad's on Thanksgiving. Got the turkey roasted today, all the sides made. Will carve that bird tomorrow and pack it. That's the big job.

Otherwise, the wind has died down now, thankfully. Sheesh! Thought Mr. Spot and I were going to be taking lift off for Kansas!

Hope your weather cooperates! It's supposed to be bad out your way @ Thanksgiving, isn't it??? Well, just wishing you safe travels.
