Norma Jean's Motivation SparkPage

I joined the Silver Sneakers Program at the Cleaver Family YMCA in Kansas City on Feburary 5, 2013. I joined SparkPeople on February 17, 2013.

Since joining, I've eliminated using a cane and antidepressant medication (used for approximately 15 years). I was a couch potato prior to joining. I've lost weight too. Not at my goal, but have put a 22 pound dent in the goal of 120 pounds. I know I will get there in my life's journey to a better life style.

I crave exercise. I don't have the urge to lay around. I have so much energy more than I can remember since I was an adolescent. That's a time span of 53 years.

I was off the cane in 3 months and off the medication in 5 months.

With regular exercise and the Spark tool tracking components I found the key to my life's journey to good nutrition and wellness in general.

My life has changed for the best!!

My Goals:
**** Changes to rellect my current status Under Construction 09-21-13 ***

-------------------------------------

I want to loose 32 lbs by May 2014. I will determine if knee replacement surgery s necessary.

Have eliminated carrying a cane for support. This is a real accomplishment.

Have reduce the habit of eating Potato Chips daily. Have learned to moderately consume them which means not every day or week

Forward and Better!!!

My Program:
Tracking food, sleep, and fitness daily.

Using pedometer to track steps as of Feb 14, 2013.

Good practice. I walk more since starting to use this tool.

Personal Information:
My name is Norma Jean Westbrook.

I'm 66 years old. I recently retired in June, 2012.

I'm divorced and like the single life.

I was born in Charleston, Mississippi, raised in Chicago, Illinois since 5 years old. Living in Kansas City Missouri for the last 25 years. Still call
Chicago home because my family and long time friends live there. I love Kansas City though!!

I rally around and support Chicago sports teams first, and Kansas City teams second. When the teams don't play each other, I'm an loyal fan of each!!

Other Information:
I'm a advanced knitter. Like sports, fishing, gardening and a pretty good chess player. I had a rating with the chess federation many years ago, but could not qualify after not playing regularly and getting rusty. Maybe, I'll regain that ranking.


I'm discovering more good and positive actions
since joining the Spark community.

I feel so much better plus, I see physical results.
