My Goal to Become a Fit Grandmother

Took a look at my Spark page recently, and decided maybe an update was needed. A lot has changed since I initially joined Spark People in 2009. The granddaughters have grown, 6 and soon to be 8, (going on 25 or so). I am retired from my long-time job as business manager of the local newspaper, although I still show up there on production day to help with the insert stuffing and such.

Took a look at my Spark page recently, and decided maybe an update was needed. A lot has changed since I initially joined Spark People in 2009. The granddaughters have grown, 6 and soon to be 8, (going on 25 or so). I am retired from my long-time job as business manager of the local newspaper, although I still show up there on production day to help with the insert stuffing and such. Two summers ago I lost my husband of 36 years to pancreatic cancer, a quiet, deadly disease that gives little warning or hope of cure. I still struggle with gaining and losing the same poundage repeatedly, although my current weight is almost 20 pounds less than when I began Spark People. Have 20 pounds to go to get to goal and recently joined a local TOPS group to make me accountable to a weekly weigh-in. Nice group of ladies who are very encouraging and patient with my set-backs. I continue my musician duties on the weekend, it's a nice supplement to my retirement income and the folks at both parishes have become like family to me. I continue to cut fabric into very small pieces and sew it back together, enjoy my computer and do my best to maintain my old house and acreage. I'm blessed with a loving family and many good friends, and determined to be persistent in my weight-loss efforts with the goal of staying active and healthy as long as I can. I've worn a pedometer for years, recently switched to a Fit Bit and try and stay competitive with my 35 year old son. It is usually a losing battle, but it's fun.

Member Since: 1/10/2009

SparkPoints: 165,448

Fitness Minutes: 93,907

My Goals:
My beginning goals are pretty basic.
1. Drink my water
2. Add 20 min. a day to my usual exercise
3. Journal my food (and feelings)
4. Work on evening eating, I've really allowed it to sabatoge my program
5. Limit refined carbohydrates

My Program:
I have most of the eating principles of Weight Watchers and South Beach (plus a few recent ones from OA) committed to memory. They are often de-railed by emotional eating, occasions when I use food for comfort or entertainment. Addressing the emotional aspect will be as important as the plan of eating.

Other Information:
My favorite leisure activities are walking, reading, writing and quilting..

Good chilly morning to you.... The frost is on the punkin...

I'm just glad it's not emoticon , again or yet!

I like the wood fire too, but carrying wood in and ashes out, not so much.

We have two gas furnaces and one electric, but we burn wood because we have that too and it feels warmer with a real fire we can watch and it does save some of the other fuels. We live in a big old house too, part of it is about 90 I think, and the new part will 40 this coming year. My husband likes the four seasons and I'm from OH so this is what I've always known except it is flatter where we live now than in SW OH where I grew up. Oh well, I am just trying to bloom where I'm planted and right now it's here!

Stay warm and dry!
