Is it the journey....or is it the destination?

I have overcome many obstacles in my life and my goal is to conquer one more, my weight. As I drag on through middle age, so does my waistline and hips. I want to climb a staircase without getting out of breath or my quads burning. I have started to eat more healthy, and I am working at completing at least 30 minutes of walking or a cardio routine every day.

During the daytime hours I teach middle school language arts. You think that would keep me thinner, just from the stress, but it doesn't. One nice thing, the students are encouraging.
I am a cancer survior...Stage 3C melanoma. I am so thankful to be around and able to challenge myself to live a more healthier lifestyle.

Member Since: 3/4/2008

SparkPoints: 11,466

Fitness Minutes: 23,902

My Goals:
To be physically active at least 30 minutes each day to
become more physically fit, so I can hike and climb the beautiful White Mountains. I turned 55 and have not met the goal of losing weight that I set when I was 50 and started this page. If I don't work on this goal, I will not be able to do all the things I want to do when I retire.

My Program:
I am trying to eat within the framework that SP has given me to follow. I am cutting my calories and focusing on eating less fats and carbs. I have been able to do this most days, though there have been a few days that I have not done so well.

Personal Information:
I live in New Hampshire, not far from the ocean, but only an hour's drive to the mountains.

I love my career, teaching, and my students motivate and inspire me each and everyday.

Hey elyse. Did you roll the dice today and get your bonus points?
It is beautiful here, sunny and warm but not too hot. I live in Illinoes so don't know what the fall will bring but already chilly at night. It got down to 45 the other night and 50 something last night. Supposed to get it the 80's tomorrow though. This is the craziest summer weather I have ever seen. Well have a great weekend. Pam
