my goal is better health, and a more fit, toned, in shape, more flexible, powerful, athletic, positive, full of energy... ROCKIN' body!

I am 49 years old, almost 50. i am 222.6 pounds, but not for long! i know this is a lifetime change, and i am ready to commit! i obviously have to do something about my health and weight, cuz i don't have a magic wand to wave the pounds away!

Just like everyone else, it is hard to find strength to work, do family things, housework AND work out. i am a perfectionist, which makes it hard, when i screw up (which is more often than i would like).

i tore my ACL, and other knee damage about 7 years ago, and i still have a mental wall that prevents me from the "animal edge" i used to have... and getting older makes it more of a challenge, too. i have never had so much support as i do here on sparks, i know i can achieve my goals here with all my friends! i hope i can help others reach their goals, also.

And now something for you to ponder: An old Cherokee was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them, "A battle is raging inside me ... it is a terrible fight between two wolves. One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith." The old man fixed the children with a firm stare. "This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too." They thought about it for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?" The old Cherokee replied: "The one you feed." ~
