A Healthier Year

My goals are simple - eat right, exercise, lose weight, and stay healthy. Weight loss is definitely a part of it, but I figure I should start with the important parts first. I have found I work better with smaller, short term goals. I need to see results because it seems just looking and feeling better isn't motivation enough!

My goals are simple - eat right, exercise, lose weight, and stay healthy. Weight loss is definitely a part of it, but I figure I should start with the important parts first. I have found I work better with smaller, short term goals. I need to see results because it seems just looking and feeling better isn't motivation enough!

I am a married Mother of four, one of whom has special needs. After a lengthy illness that resulted in several abdominal surgeries and various follow-up treatments, I'm finally in the clear, on the mend, and very much ready to get my weight and daily exercise routine under control. I've let things go for far too long, using far too many excuses. Even if other people think they are valid, I know they are not.

I'm very active, but not always in the "right" ways. Our life is always a bit hectic and socially-based, so I'm taking advantage of having just moved a few thousand miles away from everyone we know and using this time to get myself into a set routine of eating properly and exercising consistently.

Hi there! It's been a while since I've been on Spark and I've been catching up on your blogs. I am so impressed with your cake and cupcake decorating skills! I dabble a very little bit in cake decorating too, mostly with the shaped pans, but I can only buy so many of those so I've been thinking of trying fondant and other methods. My daughter is also interested. Did you take classes or are you self taught?

You are doing wonderfully with your weight loss too. Down 31 lbs! I'm hoping to get back on track and stay on track this time. Keep up the good work!

So glad to have connected with you here and on Facebook!

You're welcome. Yes the scale can really depress you! So cover yourself by keeping track of multiple things. I know the scale has almost made me give up many of times!
