Hi Everyone!

I live in Cheapeake VA. I have been on Spark for a few years and while I lost 20 pounds, I have not been putting my full effort into losing anymore weight. Now that is going to stop! I want to stay healthy as I get older as I am 72 years old so its like now or never......right! I was always thin until I retired from nursing and then with some medical issues, surgeries, etc. got side-tracked.
I am counting steps, drinking a lot of water and decreasing portion size and keeping my calories within a certain range. I have a lot of support on Spark and I have made some wonderful friends! WE can all do this by making it a priority in our life! Here's to Healthy Eating!

I am starting this on Monday Sept. 14th, 2015 so I have time to plan my routine and foods I will eat and the options I will give myself.
Holiday times will be hard but will keep in mind the 2-3 bite rule.

Go up a flight of stairs without being short of breathe.

First goal is to reach 186 lbs. by the end of 2015. When I reach that goal then I will set another goal until I finally reach my goal of 155 lbs. hopefully by the middle of April 2016 and then onto maintenance.

Happy Valentines Day and God Bless, hope your day is blessed!

And you enjoy the following Valentine Poem! emoticon

You Are Often In My Thoughts

Love is a command
That Christians are called to do;
Our Lord says "Love your God,
And love your neighbor, too."

Some people are easy to love;
They are human rays of sun;
They light up every life,
And encourage everyone.

You are in that group,
So I sincerely want to say:
You are often in my thoughts;
Happy Valentine's Day!

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Nobody knows the truffles I’ve seen. . .

I eat chocolate with my wine so that I’m not drinking wine on an empty stomach.

Everyone thinks a girl’s dream is to find the perfect guy. Pfft . . . .
In reality, every girl’s dream is to get thin by eating chocolate.

Anything with raisins in it would be 10 times better with chocolate chips instead; For example, a box of raisins.

If dark chocolate is less fattening, eat your chocolate with the lights out. Problem Solved!

Hope to see you later at Happy Hour.

It's Valentine's Week!

For those of you worried about over-indulging on chocolate this week here's a good guideline from a best selling author:

"As with most fine things, chocolate has its season. There is a simple memory aid that you can use to determine whether it is the correct time to order chocolate dishes: any month whose name contains the letter A, E, or U is the proper time for chocolate." ~ Sandra Boynton

Hope you're having a good start to your week. How can it be bad if it starts with chocolate?! Thanks for the goodie and your note!
