Rita's Road

Lost weight thanks to Spark People. Wish I could say that was the happy ending, but health problems and surgeries got in the way. I have since regained much of the weight I lost. Having huge challenges with my diet. Thankfully, the exercise habit that Spark People helped me make a lifestyle has remained strong. Struggling with arthritis and fibromyalgia has given me added challenges, making me realize how important physical activity is.

Fitness Minutes: 73,450

My Goals:
My current goal is to 1.continue to record my food every day,
2 drink 8C of water daily,
3 to exercise and be more active daily
4 to weigh myself regularlyl

My Program:
I take part in water aerobics 3 days a week, swim laps and walk until the weather clears for me to bike again.

Getting stronger every day!
I feel great! April '09 was the start of an incredible journey into losing the weight that was effecting my health. It's been a great journey that surprisingly enough, has shown me that I could do what I didn't believe I could! My family is proud of me and that means the world to me!

Personal Information:
I was born in Billings, Montana and have lived here my entire life. I have been married to my very supportive husband, Bob for 33 years and we have 5 children and 3 grandchildren with 3 more on the way in 2011. I am a Christian and love serving in my church. I take care of elderly and love that profession.

Other Information:
I have reset my spark page. I need to lose the weight that I regained after 5 surgeries. I regret that I was careless and regained weight while ill and recovering. I was not as active as I like to be and didn't watch my food intake. Shocking how fast the hard work of losing weight can be undone!

emoticon It's February...let's make it FLY month...Finally Love Yourself emoticon

And it's easy if you follow these guidelines...
*Drink your emoticon
*Eat your five servings emoticon
*Track your food and fitness emoticon
*Get in an extra 10 minutes of dancing emoticon
*Get plenty of emoticon
*Believe that you are worth it emoticon
* Keep walking emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

You are not alone on this journey. We do not stand in front or behind but beside each other. You can do this. Don't get down if you make a mistake but get back up and do it again and again until you get it right. It will happen. Maybe not today or even tomorrow but you will do it if you believe in yourself. Find that strength deep inside and bring it out. Don't jump into a decision to quit and then regret it. Even a small victory is a step ahead. I believe in you and now it is time for all of us to believe in ourselves. Let's make this the month we really FLY!

******THE ROAD OF LIFE HAS MANY TURNS******
Sometimes the road of life takes us to a place we had planned....

Sometimes it shows us a surprise around the bend we could never have anticipated. We make decisions based on the information we have...We accept our ups and downs as they come...We live "one day at a time."

But often we find it is only when we look back that we can see that what we had thought was a "wrong turn" has brought us to exactly the right place and every step was a right one after all!!

Thank you for letting me share this with you!! (Actually Barb-BARBIE52, shared it with me and I just wanted to share it with you.) Trust that you are exactly where you are supposed to be today..."We know that ALL things work together for good to those who love God and are fitting into His plan." Romans 8:28

"If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you.
If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you.
Whatever good things we build end up building us."

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston
