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!

Hey there. Thank you for the blog love, honey. I'm SO sorry you've been struggling with a lack of employees. I'd almost rather have an upset at home than an upset at work. At home, at least the people involved are people I love. Having to adjust and be nice and polite and productive and yada yada ydad with people I don't necessarily love is much worse.

this past winter and early spring have been so tough for so many friends of mine, it's enough to make me believe in horoscopes. Grand trines and eclipses and Mercury retrograde and all - yeah - ith as to be that - or secret martian anxiety dust. LOL

But we will prevail, right? We'll know that whatever comes along, we are winners, not winers.
