Never Giving Up!

8/4/14 - Ok everybody, here I am with trying to start again! It's been quite the journey so far. Ups and downs and going back and forth with the same numbers since the end of 2012. I joined SP in Sept. 2011 and over the next year, I lost 67#, plateaued forever and put around 20# back on, give and take over the next couple of years. I feel that I need to be more diligent at doing low carb as good as I can and staying in my low carb ranges. If I can do that the majority of each week, I know ...
8/4/14 - Ok everybody, here I am with trying to start again! It's been quite the journey so far. Ups and downs and going back and forth with the same numbers since the end of 2012. I joined SP in Sept. 2011 and over the next year, I lost 67#, plateaued forever and put around 20# back on, give and take over the next couple of years. I feel that I need to be more diligent at doing low carb as good as I can and staying in my low carb ranges. If I can do that the majority of each week, I know that I'll lose. It's tough with exercising but I can at least pedal on my recumbent bike. I love that and I try to stay on it until I still love it! That's how I used to lose the weight. Up the exercise with what I can do. So here's to me! I can do it with all my wonderful, awesome Sparking friends! My goal is 155# from what my dr. told me in 2011. He said to get down to there and go from there. Well, I keep plugging along at it and will get there in 2014. I can feel it now!!

My Program:
I'm making more healthy choices with food, paying more attention to exercise. I try to keep my goal in view every day.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from Seattle, WA and have lived in the Midwest for around 30 years now, married to my best friend. We own and operate our dairy farm. My husband and I have two grown children. Our daughter's married and our son farms with us full-time. We also have our beloved English Springer Spaniel named Hope! We love her undying love for us every day! We raise corn, soybeans, barley, alfalfa and wheat too sometimes. I love the distinct 4 seasons in the MIdwest, but not always the extreme temp. of heat and humidity in the summer and the cold winds along with snow in the winter. But we know that the things we don't care for as much, find us enduring and then that builds character! I love gardening, baking, collecting, shopping, sewing, music, singing, piano, painting, decorating, embroidery. I hope to become more and more healthy that I can enjoy all of these things more.

Other Information:
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.

Sure hope that you have a Tuesday filled with many memories of being blessed and thankful.

Today I plan on making this my Toss Out Tuesday. I will toss out one item that is clutter, eliminate one unhealthy habit for this week, and toss out one unnecessary time consuming task by saying, "No".

I just wanted to let you know that Linda Spangle is here on Spark now. She is posting in the 100 day of Weight Loss group and her posts are just a copy of each days exercises. So you can get the process without buying the book, if you are interested. I bought the books (there are 2 of them that go together) about 6 years ago and have worked through the exercises 3 times previously. Each time I realize how much I have made changes over the years. This time I decided that I wanted to do this from a point of having fun and playing a game and with no resistance to any of the exercises. It has been quite an eye opener for me. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week, month, and the rest of 2014. Joann
