Shared Fitness Tracker
I am a 67 yr, old, married, retired, woman who loves animals, enjoys X-stitching, reading, and spending time with family - especially my grandchildren. I have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren. I volunteer at the local Humane Society and have 5 cats, all adopted from the humane society over a number of years. I need to lose weight to improve my health and prevent new health issues from occurring. I also want to lose weight in order to be happier with the way I look...pure vanity! For me, controlling my food intake and making good choices are daily struggles....but I am committed to getting back on track.
My first goal is to be consistent about tracking what I consume and how much exercise I do.
I have joined the local Y and use their fitness center - right now I am using the treadmill with some consistency.
I live in Maine. I am married, have 3 adult children, and 5 grandchildren. I am an animal lover and have 5 cats (though we have also had dogs in the past, our last dog died last Spring).

"Today is a new day. It's a day you have never seen before and will never see again.
Stop telling yourself the 'same crap, different day' lie! How many days has that lie stolen from you?
Seize the wonder and uniqueness of today! Recognize that throughout this beautiful day,
you have an incredible amount of opportunities to move your life into the direction you want it to go.”
Just coming by to say hello and to let you know that I've noticed that you haven't been around in a while. I hope all is going well for you. Don't give up on reaching for your goals! Drop by my page and say hi when you get a chance, ok?

"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
Hope your week is going great, Spark friend! Keep taking those steps towards your goals. Never give up! As long as you keep going, you will succeed. You are always worth your best effort!

Success is a Choice
"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."
Stopping by to wish you a great week, Sparkfriend! Keep doing your best to reach your goals...its up to you, and you know you're worth the effort, right?
