A New Me

I never want weight (over or under) to define me. I know that a healthy weight will allow me to live a better quality of life and allow me to be more flexible and stronger.
I have zip-lined in Honduras, and kayaked in Canada.
I want to do more!
And I don't see 63+ years old as an obstacle.

SparkPoints: 25,478

Fitness Minutes: 15,274

My Goals:
I know the scale isn't everything, but I am going to permanently eliminate 30# from my body.
I want my next bone density test to register positive numbers.
And I plan to get into my favorite jeans very soon.

My Program:
'Upping'my workout!

Drink 96 oz of water daily.
45 minutes cardio 6 days a week.
AB workout 6 days a week.
Kettlebell workout 3 days a week.
Practice gratitude daily.



Personal Information:
I live in the 'snowbelt' of Northeast Ohio: an hour east of Cleveland and 35 minutes west of Erie, Pa. I am the Mom of 3 beautiful children (2 natural and 1 adopted) - American Mom to 5 exchange daughters (3 from Japan, 1 from Italy and 1 from Hong Kong) - and GrandMommy to 2 stunning GrandGirls. I have learned to live comfortably with celiac. But the auto-immmune disorder left me with the challenge of osteoporosis and a slowing thyroid.
Now is my time to reverse the bone loss and the weight gain. I really want to be healthy for this last third of my life. I have so much to be grateful for.

Other Information:
I originally got on Spark People in 2012. And I fell off. Don't know why, but the summer of 2014 found me wanting to eat better and move more. And it has continued. The scale hasn't reflected my lifestyle change, but my clothes are fitting so much better. I am happy about that.

What's YOUR weight loss motivation??

I want to be healthy.
I want to look good.
I want to fit in.
I want to be able to walk, run, or bike.
I want to get off medications.
I want to be able to get up and down easily.
I want to sleep better.
I want to feel good about myself.

¸.♥´¯`•.¸¸.☆ ¯`•.¸¸.☆ ´¯`•.¸¸.♥ ¯`•.¸¸.☆ ´¯`•.¸¸.♥ ¯`•.¸¸.☆

Whatever it is, never lose your focus!
