HEALTHYSTART

I am changing my introduction today after almost a year. May 1st 2010 was my start date with Spark. Now today April 11 2011 I have a different perspective. I used the nutrition tracker in the spring of 2010 and lost 22 pounds then in the fall of 2010 I stopped doing it. I just got tired of it I have continued to read Spark people emails and have continued to go for walks but the winter saw me gain back all but 6 pounds of my spring weight loss.

I just got tired of it I have continued to read Spark people emails and have continued to go for walks but the winter saw me gain back all but 6 pounds of my spring weight loss. I obviously haven't changed much if I am still yoyoing. I will continue ... I will use the tracker and I wont give up. Spring is around the corner and I want to get back to where I was last summer. With the help of the tracker and great spark friends I know I can do it. Peace

My Goals:
To find a course of action that will eliminate the temptation to solve emotional issues with sugar and or bread and butter.. To excercise, drink water and appreciate good healthy foods.

Personal Information:
I am Joanna Carnie. I am a grandmother but the grand kids are 18 and 20 years old. I live in northern British Columbia in the countryside near a small village(originally from Montreal). I walk in the woods with my friend and our dogs. I am married and have a part time job at the local college. I read a lot and volunteer at the food bank.

Other Information:
In the last 20 years I have lost around 40 lb. twice. It seems like every 9 or 10 years I decide to lose the weight again. It creeps on at the rate of 3 or 4 pounds a year. I hate the scale and my clothes are tight. I am hoping to break the yoyo cycle this time and keep it off.

Good for you to pursue the lights you needed when you worked, and I know they will help you at home, too.

I don't need them at work. Behind my desk, about 2 feet from my back, is a full French door that lets light in all day. It is weak, since it is on the north side, but it is natural light and I value very highly that I can turn in my chair and see the sky and the many trees outdoors.

I loathe driving home in the dark at 4:30, when the winter gets its firm grip on the day. Already looking for spring, and it isn't even October! And thinking of retiring, and I am only 62!
Guess I am never content with what I have...

Thanks for the support Joanna. I am still battling my mind as to whether I made the right decision but I don't want to go to work anymore. It will grow on me I think. Enjoying beautiful Spring weather. Hope it is not too cold for you yet. I hear Calgary got a big snowfall that did a lot of damage. emoticon

Thank you for the lovely Goodie Joanna. Guess what?
I have finally told the school that I will leave at the end of the year when the semester finishes on December 12 and I am having mixed feelings and very nervous and scared at the same time. I hope you are still enjoying retirement.
Have a great weekend. emoticon emoticon emoticon
