Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. ~ George Bernard Shaw

I stumbled across SparkPeople by accident back in May of 2007 and I do believe it is one of the BEST things that has ever happened to me! I know this journey IS different for EACH person, but I started with drinking my 8 glasses of water a day and logging my food. Let me just say that logging my food was a HUGE eye opener... DANGER!

I stumbled across SparkPeople by accident back in May of 2007 and I do believe it is one of the BEST things that has ever happened to me! I know this journey IS different for EACH person, but I started with drinking my 8 glasses of water a day and logging my food. Let me just say that logging my food was a HUGE eye opener... DANGER! DANGER! From there I moved on to exercise which for me consisted of walking, walking and yes, more WALKING. I am starting to seriously branch out in how I exercise... Kickboxing, Zumba, Spin and even Bootcamp!

THANK YOU SPARKPEOPLE FOR HELPING ME CHANGE MY LIFE!

I can see my toes without moving my belly out of the way or bending over.

I can touch my toes.

I can reach the center of my back with my hands.

I can put my leg up on my knee to tie my shoes without pulling my foot up with my hands.

I can walk to the end of my driveway and back without feeling short of breath.

I can walk around the block (1.5 miles) without feeling like I might die.

I can alternate walking and jogging on my morning walks.

I can comfortably wear a pair of size 14 jeans. (I was in an 18, pushing a 20 when I joined.)

I can wear size large shirts.

I no longer fit into clothes at Lane Bryant... They are TOO big!

I can breathe easier.

I am OFF of all high blood pressure medications.

I not only sleep better, but fall asleep easier.

I can hike and I do it often.

I have joined a gym and use it.

I have participated in a boot camp fitness club.

I have walked a 5k, a 10k, a 15k, a half marathon and a marathon.

I have jogged a 5k.

I have done a stair climb.

I have walked 60 miles in three days to fight breast cancer.

I know I could go on and on, but I won''t...

Good to hear from you, I am fine I am currently on Unemployment as of January, I was burnt out and needed a rest from retail. I have my hopes on landing a local job here in Arlington. Other than just making sure I get my walks in daily and working around the house I am saying on track and with my hopes on Hubby finding a job on this side of the Pass as he is still in Kennewick working and staying at our other home.
He comes home most weekends however I will not let him come home when the snow is flying.
Hope you have a wonderful week.
Sandy

Thanks for stopping by my page! I appreciate the encouragement!

Life is treating me good. I am logging my food most days. I don't like doing it but it sure helps. I do love when I log exercise and get to eat more=)
I am down four pounds for the month and hope to be down one more by the first.
The new dog has me out walking almost everyday which is good except that I skip the gym, after work, to get home in time to walk her before dark.
Now I should get up from the computer and get busy working toward my goals.

Have a great day and Spark on!
Go Hawks!

Thank you for stopping by my page. Sadly I'm not so determined any more and I haven't found my motivation. However, today I am starting by drinking water which is something I rarely do anymore. So baby steps I guess you could say.

You look great! Congratulations on your continued success.

Everything you need to be successful on your weight loss journey is inside of you......so dig deep, if necessary, and push forward to meet your goal. Whether your goal is for the next hour, day, week or month you can meet it if you stay focused, positive and determined. Believe you can do it and you are half way there!
