Disabled But Not Dead

I may use a walker and a wheelchair, but I am not dead and am happy about that. There is so much to life, no matter if you can walk or not and I want to experience all that I can for the rest of my life. I am vibrant and happy and now I want to look the same way.

My Goals:
I have lost 200 pounds since Aug. 7, 2009 and I intend to stay with Spark People from here on out, not just when I reach what I think is a final goal.

My Program:
I am exercising and have made major changes in the way I eat. I eat what I want, just amounts and snacking have changed.

Personal Information:
My name is Kathy and I am from Columbus, Ohio. I enjoy reading and traveling I have been married 41 years and I have a 38 year old son.. I am a big Ohio State Buckeyes fan. GO BUCKS!

Other Information:
My program is a very simple one. I plan my meals every morning and very seldom do I make any changes. This includes snacks. I practice portion control and drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday. I also try to get in two hours of exercise everyday. I do not deprive myself of special treats, but I pick and chose the treats that I have and make sure that I practice the portion control with them.

When the seasons shift with their subtle beginning and silent ending and the scent of a promised change is in the air, I feel something stir inside me. Hopefulness. . . . Gratitude . . . Openness. . . . Acceptance. . . . Getting out in nature helps us to remember that all things are connected like the blood that unites us. We do not weave the web of life - we are merely a strand in it. Whatever it is, I welcome it and believe in my inner wisdom, and let it nourish my soul.

“The deeper we look into nature, the more we recognize that it is full of life, and the more profoundly we know that all life is a secret and that we are united with all life that is in nature.” ~ Albert Schweitzer

emoticon O One day of healthy eating is a success.
emoticon C Consider all of the opportunities that await you today.
emoticon T The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
emoticon O One small step naturally leads to another.
emoticon B Beginning is easy. It’s the continuing that’s hard.
emoticon E Every morning is a new page in your story. Make it a great one today.
emoticon R Remember to love yourself - no matter what!

The thing that is really hard, is giving up on being perfect, and remembering the day to day work of becoming yourself. Let Fall begin this subtle and gentle transformation of you.
