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: 73,462

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!

Thank you for your comments on my blog Perfection. I am amazed at how many of us have the same childhood issues.

emoticon In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.

Success is a Choice
-Unknown
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."

Congratulations, Rita, on being NUMBER FOUR in Spark Points on the 12 Weeks to Walking Team. It shows you have the determination and motivation to move forward toward a healthier lifestyle! Stop by and let us know how you're doing!!

You've got something to give.
Something good and right and true.
Something fashioned in heaven and placed in your heart.
Something we need and it's beautiful.
Maybe it's a smile.
A little kindness.
That dream you're ready to start living.
You matter.
Oh, how you do.
The God who flung stars into place, who holds the world in His hands, who makes all things possible lives in you.
And this week will be better because of what you two do together.
Watch out, world, here comes you...
