Maria's Journey

My Name is Maria, and I live in Delaware -the first State. I am a NY native who moved here with my husband in 1985 (he was born here in DE). We have one daughter who married a guy from NJ and now lives 2 1/2 hours from us (boo hoo) They have blessed us with two beautiful granddaughters whom we love with all our heart. I will turn 62 this Sept. and my goal is to renew my goals, my way of eating and exercising and chase away this obese lady. Oh I will still be one of those fiesty old ladies. ...

This summer I spent a week with my daughter and her family in Disneyworld and we had a ball. I was surprised at how much I kept up with them (she runs every day and is very fit), but I want to feel better about myself. I'm tired of looking in the mirror and asking - "Does this look ok""
I will soon start the 2014 Fall 5% challenge with my furry Teddy family and I will give it my fullest and I will succeed. I have to succeed for myself and my family. I want to retire within the next 3 years and I don't want to retire and be the size I am now. There is a size 10 inside yelling to come out and it's time she did.

My Goals:
Summer 5% Challenge:
1. Get to the Gym 3X wk
2. Look at my plate and what is on it. Be more mindful of what I am eating.
3. Get up and move around more = every hour at least!!
4.Drink plenty of water. Fill up on water- not sugary snacks.
5. Give myself a break and realize I can't do it all at once.

My Program:
Keep with eating only natural foods and eliminate as much processed foods as we can. Learn to try veggies we have not eaten much before.

Personal Information:
I currently live in Milford, DE. I work full time for the State. I have been married to a saint for 36 yrs. We have one daughter (31) and two beautiful granddaughters age 7 and 4.

Other Information:
I am planning on going to Disneyland with my daughter, son-in-law and my two grandbabies. I do not want to go at this weight. I want to be able to enjoy myself this time around.

Oops, I mistakenly sent you a 2nd invite to the Teddy team. Should have known I wouldn't need to. But at least it brought me to your page where I see you're getting birthday wishes, so let me add mine. emoticon I hope you really enjoy celebrating it!

Birthdays are a new start; fresh beginnings, a time to start new endeavors with new goals. Move forward with fresh confidence and courage. You are a special person, may you have an amazing today and year!
