2012 a new attitude!

My name is melodie and I have been with spark people since october 2011. I am a critical care nurse specializing in open heart patients. I know all the hazards of eating badly. I teach my patients about good health and healthy heart living after surgery and conditions such as congestive heart failure and heart attacks. I was not overweight til I went to nursing school 15 years ago. The stress of my job, bad choices and eating on the run has put a toll on me.
I really not sure how ...

I was not overweight til I went to nursing school 15 years ago. The stress of my job, bad choices and eating on the run has put a toll on me.
I really not sure how my weight got here, used to be so healthy. I was a marine in 1983 and actually ran the marine corp marathon, funny how life changes. I also love to cook.
I just turned 50 in december and had a blood clot to my leg due to obesity and my job, hard work running up and down halls performing cpr due a code blue. I made a healthy change in october and the duration of 2011 took off 25 lbs. I need to lose about 80 or more lbs to be considered healthy but this time I will do it.
I also love horses and have just 2 now. The lil colt (cowboy)in my picture is all grown up and is a 5 year old gelding(as of the other day) and I have a mare sweetie who is expecting a foal in may. I got out of riding due to my weight and that is one of my goals for losing weight.
I want to enjoy life instead of passing through it. Please come with me on this journey.
I recently returned from texas visitng family and after talking with my aunts I decided to make a food blog mostly of our families history with food. My grandmother recently passed at 98 and after cleaning out her place found a ton of recipes, some I had some I did not. So check out my blogger site, hence the name change.

My Goals:
first goal- 25lbs 10% weight goal by christmas day 230 -DONE!
2nd 15% weight goal 38lbs by valentines day 216lbs
3rd- 20% by easter
205lbs

My Program:
I love eating as clean as possible nothing processed, lean meats at 2-4 whole grains a day and lots of vegetables. I never really ate fried foods unless it was a special event but the wrong foods. I have a stressful job and eat on the run and there was always something in the breakroom to grab a handful of chips, a few chocolates, or cake someone brought in they wanted to get rid of from home.
This is my new beginning.

Looked up Sparkfriends that love horses and found you. I too miss riding so much and I look forward to getting light enough to not feel guilty about putting to much strain on my mount. Your horses are beautiful. You're so lucky. ‹

Every human being needs relationships. They are the source of our most profound joy and pain. It is in relationships that we find out who we are as humans, and what matters most in life. Relationship is at the heart of the Christian faith, reflecting the fact that we as humans have been made for relationship. Relationships reflect our deepest human struggles. They are the source of our most profound joy and pain.

This is the reason why I post daily messages to my Spark friends. A friend relationship is important to me. However, I sincerely want you to know that YOU, the person, are of value to me the most. Everyday I look forward to hearing from you, knowing what you are doing and sharing in your joys and pain. It is an honor be your friend.

Here is something to think about: "True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it be lost." - Charles Caleb Colton (So I am valuing YOU now while I can.)
