I am in my sixth year of living a healthy life style!! I celebrated my fifth year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2016. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals. I started off with walking. If you would have told me three years ago that I would have run a 5k, I would have never believed it! As of today, I have run 5ks, 10k's, 3 ten milers, and 5 Half Marathons! Funny how fast one's perspective can change...even for us middle-aged people! Even though I have conquered all of the above, I am faced with an even bigger "challenge". I lost my 26 year old son last November to Anorexia Nervosa. I am in the first year of my grieving process and it is very difficult. I need to stay healthy, but, it is not the first thing on my mind. And, since he passed away from counting calories, weighing himself on the scale 3 times per day, and eating halves of everything - it has been a real mental challenge for me. My favorite quotes... �All you can change is yourself, but sometimes that changes everything!��Gary W. Goldstein Goals are dreams with deadlines. ---Diana Scharf Hunt Take care of your body. It�s the only place you have to live. - Jim Rohn What you are doing is not nearly as important as how you feel about what you are doing. - Unknown There'll be two dates on your tombstone. And all your friends will read 'em. But all that's gonna matter is that little dash between 'em. - Kevin Welch All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. �Walt Disney Accomplishment only takes place when you actively participate with your intentions. Therefore, fully commit to participate in the dreams of your choice and do so against all the risks confronting you.�Guru Singh No Matter How You Feel, Get Up, Dress Up, Show Up, and Never Give Up - Unknown

    If you believe, truly believe to your core, that you can do this, you can. You absolutely can. Don’t be a doubter; be a doer.

    My daughter sent candy and I ate it and got into hubby's sugar cookies to dunk in my coffee.

    After that, I banished the cookies to hubby's Igloo and put them in the guest bedroom. He has a big popcorn tin full of pig-shaped sugar cookies with purple sugar sprinkles on them and a food storage bag full of them that wouldn't fit in the tin. She wrapped two cookies into foil packages and put the foil packages in the bag.

    I hope the food temptations are over. If there is birthday cake, I will have some. I just don't want the cake left here. My failings on my diet are to chocolate and sweets.

    I don't know if there will be a celebration since I was supposed to go to Wyoming with my husband. I'll have to wait and see.

    I have all my gifts opened and washed up to use and all of hubby's stuff is unpacked, laundry washed and put away. The cardboard boxes are in the recycle bin for pick up tomorrow night. I got buffalo jerky and hubby, son and I had a stick together this afternoon. Our son came over and he and hubby got the patio set into the basement and a park bench I had on the pool deck.

    Our son helped me to set up an online identity to be able to do online banking. Our bank was bought out by another bank and I don't do online banking. Hubby came home with a blank receipt and I needed to be able to look at the transactions he had made while he was gone to make sure that all were entered into the check register.

    Our son showed us again how to use the Roku streaming player he bought for our TV since we cancelled Dish Network. All is done now for winter preparations of our property. We put a trash bag over the pool filter, a sand filter, and the wind had lifted it off while everyone was in Wyoming. They put it back on and secured it with a bungee cord.

    Hubby and I made room for the stuff they brought inside, instead of just sticking it some place until next summer. I like having access to all that I have.
