The Journey to the Best Me Possible

I'm nearly fifty and don't want to feel it....I want to LIKE the way I look and feel. I want to set goals and achieve them, and not just achieve them, but build on them.

I AM FIFTY - and I feel GREAT!!! Finding Spark has been one of the most wonderful blessings of my life. Since starting SparkPeople, I have lost 43 lbs. and have commenced a journey to become the best me I can possibly be. I am taking better care of my health, exercising and running, continuing to eat healthy and maintain my weight loss. I am also learning to practice the same principles that helped me reach my goal weight to achieve goals in other areas of my life; ie., financially, professionally and with organization and time management. I am just beginning to comprehend how vast my options in life are and what I can do to achieve my dreams while maintaining a balance in my day to day life. I am becoming happier, more content and self assured as life goes on and I intend to keep Spreading the Spark.

I can hardly believe I've been Sparking for three years now! Still, I learn something new everyday. Sometimes I think it was easier losing the weight than it is keeping it off, but the rewards are so worth it. My goal this year is to get back of the few pounds that I have gained back and to get more consistently active. I am also planning to then start school and get my certification as a personal trainer and continue on from there to become a physical therapist. It is amazing how many areas of my life that have been Sparked by this program. Eager to find out what new roads it is going to lead me down!

MAtthew West has an inspiring song called "My Name Is" Here are some of the lyrics to help you along in this journey
"Hello, My Name Is"

Hello, my name is regret
Iím pretty sure we have met
Every single day of your life
Iím the whisper inside
That wonít let you forget

Hello, my name is defeat
I know you recognize me
Just when you think you can win
Iíll drag you right back down again
ĎTil youíve lost all belief

Oh, these are the voices. Oh, these are the lies
And I have believed them for the very last time

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
Iíve been saved, Iíve been changed, I have been set free
"Amazing Grace" is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King


I am no longer defined
By all the wreckage behind
The one who makes all things new
Has proven itís true
Just take a look at my life

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I've been saved, I've been changed, I have been set free
"Amazing Grace" is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King

What love the Father has lavished upon us that we should be called His children
I am a child of the one true King



Always remember WHo you are and that YOU are worth all of the hard work you are putting into this. I also believe in YOU.
Ruthie

Thank you for the encouragement and the Goodie also. I was a bit worried about getting too excited with this weight loss and then slacking of or getting discouraged when it slows way down. I would like to run again... some day so I will keep making goals! emoticon one step at a time. thanks, Bri

Thanks for thinking about my podiatrist appointment. I got the all clear to start running again. I hope you are recovering nicely!

I look forward to hearing about you getting back out there again!

Thanks for the blog love. I think we'll be working on this maintenance the rest of our lives - that's why it's called a lifestyle, right? Hope that foot feels better today.
