A little spark in my life

It''s time to get back in motion. This is a different year and a different me. I have been retired for 5 years and have still to find what I want to do with the rest of my life. Whatever it is, I want to be healthy. The past two years have been rough. I have lost ground with my weight and my physical condition. It''s time to spark! With that in mind, I participated in the 5% challenge this summer and met my goal. I'm trying again this fall as a Shooting Star!

It''s time to get back in motion. This is a different year and a different me. I have been retired for 5 years and have still to find what I want to do with the rest of my life.

With that in mind, I participated in the 5% challenge this summer and met my goal. I'm trying again this fall as a Shooting Star!

5% Challenge goals
1. I will eat three healthy meals and record each thing I eat.
2. I will choose healthy snacks.
3. I will try to exercise at least 20 minutes each day.
4. I will record my efforts on my team page.
4. I will encourage my teammates by visiting their pages and blogs.

I am in a constant battle to keep my weight down. I have been a yo-yo dieter since forever. Right now I''m just trying to get back to my first "got-to-lose" weight almost 40 years ago. Losing hasn''t been the problem. Getting my mind set is usually where I first get stuck. Once I''m in, I''m all in and the weight comes off! The problem: I don''t keep it off. I quit writing down my food and making healthy food choices. I love chocolate, fried foods, pastries, cookies . . . and I like baking. When I didn''t have something yummy to eat, I made it.

SparkPeople has solved most of my problems if I will just keep on using the services offered. I like all of the help offered by SparkPeople website. The community here is very supportive and encouraging.

I have a wonderful family--my parents and all of my brothers, my husband, children, grandchildren. I want to keep healthy and be around for a long time. I''m glad I''ve added a little spark to my life!

Just little stones, not boulders. You've got what it takes to move little stones! Stay strong!!
