It seems I've been here and done this so many times before, yet I always lost motivation and fell back into the old habits. Now I am claiming the realization that it's still not too late to make some lasting changes to my lifestyle, and ultimately to my life! I'm still encouraged by my old motto of "Today is the first day of the rest of my life" but I'm adding to it this time: "...and I know God goes with me each step of the way. With Him, nothing is impossible."

Member Since: 10/2/2013

My Goals:
Ultimate weight loss goal: To be at 145 pounds, which means that I lose 45 pounds.

Short Term Goal: Lose 1 pound /week which would put me at 175 by April 30.

My Program:
Track food input.

Eliminate the junk food!

Exercise on a regular and disciplined basis, to include both strength training and cardio.

Increase water intake.

Maintain 8 hours of sleep/night.

Force myself to think positively.

I will stop making excuses.

Seek to do this not for my glory, but to show forth the Lord's power, and Hi s ability to answer prayer.

Personal Information:
I am from southwestern Pennsylvania, we live on a small farm that has been in our family since about 1915. We raise some beef cattle, chickens and pigs, plus the usual cats and dogs. It is a blessed place to live, and it was a grand place to raise our four children. It is now our grandchildren's favorite place to be!

Other Information:
My husband, son, three daughters and eleven grandchildren are my favorite people in this world. I love to read, with authors like Lynn Austin and Francine Rivers being among my favorite contemporary authors. Bess Streeter Aldrich and Louisa May Alcott rank high on my list of favorite classic authors. I love watching movies, especially on Friday night "dates" with my husband with a bowl of popcorn. I love having a clean and organized house (but seldom do! That's another journey that I am on...). I know there is nothing good within me, but I have it all as I have the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior. May I glorify Him in this weight-loss journey!

    My message to help motivate you & ( Especialy ) Me this week is

    “Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
    ~Mark Victor Hansen

    emoticon Spark Buddie,

    My message to help motivate you & ( Especialy ) Me this week is

    “Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.”
    – Stacey Charter

    Have a Fabulous Week !!!

    I think the Funk is behind me. At least this session anyway! I've done my best to stay busy with non- computer activities and the day is dragging by. Avoiding the computer & fighting an urge to lite up now and then...ughh. There have been moments today when it has been just give it 10 minutes! I have you to thank for that idea!!
