SparkPoints: 77,840

Fitness Minutes: 28,599

My Goals:
2014 - NEW GOAL: Always be under 170.
NEW GOAL: Keep track of my cholesterol numbers so I can stay off medication.
NEW GOAL: 6,000 steps every day.

My Program:
I will continue to track nutrition and fitness every day.

I will continue to enter challenges and enjoy friends--old and new!

Personal Information:
My name is Phyllis but I have been called MawMaw for lots of years now. I am 73 years old, live in the country in southwest Indiana. Through my life I have tried WeightWatcher, TOPS and lots of things that make me cringe now in hindsight. The Spark Program is the first time that I have taken control of my own program and made it just for me instead of following the "one size fits all" outlined for me by others.

Other Information:
My joys, besides my large beautiful family, are any type of sewing, knitting, quilting, etc. and sitting on the front porch with a good book!

“Excuses or achievement

Do you live each day focused on excuses? Or are you instead focused on achievement?

If you’re focused on excuses, you won’t even make an attempt unless you’re sure you’ll get it perfect. When you’re focused on achievement, though you may not get it completely perfect, you will get it done.

If you’re focused on excuses, the slightest obstacle will stop you cold. When you’re focused on achievement, you’ll work your way through any challenge.

If you’re focused on excuses, you’ll avoid unfamiliar or uncomfortable situations. When you’re focused on achievement, you’ll seek out new, invigorating circumstances and will find great value in them.

Excuses sound reasonable, and enable you to be temporarily satisfied with yourself for doing nothing more than thinking them up. In the long run, though, excuses can bury you under a mountain of missed opportunities.

Let go of the easy excuses, and grab on to a burning desire for meaningful achievement. Focus not on excuses, but on real achievement, and you’ll bring a profusion of that great, satisfying achievement into your world.”

Ralph Marston

Holidays are coming! Here are some tips to help you “maintain” when temptation strikes:
1. Eat something small and healthy before the “big meal”.
2. Exercise every day – even the holiday. Take the family with you.
3. It’s ok to have dessert, but only a SMALL one.
4. Track what you eat. If you have to put it in writing and be accountable, you’ll be less tempted to overeat.
5. Downsize your portions – especially of the high-calorie dishes.
6. Save calories for food you love and don’t eat the things you don’t “LOVE” just because they’re there or because it’s tradition.
7. Spend more time talking with your loved ones and friends instead of eating.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and Don't Give Up!
