January 28, 2015 Short Update.
I hope I have just ended a rough patch. You know the old saying "When it rains it pours"? Well, it did just that in my world recently. Lots of things came at me at once. Self-doubt crept in while I grew more and more tired which tells me I need to do two very important things in my future. One is don't take on so much at one time even if I think I might be able to handle it and two, be prepared for several things to go much differently than expected at any ...

One is don't take on so much at one time even if I think I might be able to handle it and two, be prepared for several things to go much differently than expected at any given time. In short, have a tool box stocked with remedies to keep you on the straight and narrow as best you can. Remind yourself to use all your Spark resources and to take the very best of care because you're worth it. Look back and see how far you have come, then pat yourself on the back and get back on the trail. The view from the top should be spectacular!!! My best to everyone. Thanks.

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

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: 20,261

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!

OH my dear, you know my emoticon and prayers are with both of you too. Will probably be MIA as we'll head out early so I can meet w/the discharge planner and the surgeon.

John came this evening!!!!! I am thrilled about that. Both Mom and Dad will be thrilled to see him.

HUGS and more.

Glad the hug felt a little like spring warmth. That's what I was aiming for! I can't wait! It is bone chilling. When I got up it was -14. At least the sun is out and it has now made it's way above zero.

Feeling punk today. Started feeling queasy and fever yesterday night. Today not much better. Am trying to eat something and fortunately finally it's helping a little!

Ah yes, a day without contractors is a day with less stress. PHEW.

HUGS sweetie, and hope it's a decent Monday for you. You need it.
