12/17/2015:

I am starting fresh.
If I don't make a completely fresh start - including completely revising my SparkPage, I feel like I will just be continuing to build on the past and... Let's face the harsh truth... the past two years have been a complete standstill with regard to my weight.

I know it's harder in your 40s.
Everyone always told me that.
It's true.
I can't imagine it will get any easier as I get older.
Time to seriously do something about this.

I am re-committing to myself.
I will not be derailed.
My goal is April!!!!
By April I will have lost between 10 & 15 pounds.
Reasonable goal.
If I truly commit to this I will achieve that goal.

Who's with me???


Member Since: 11/24/2008

Fitness Minutes: 98,446

My Goals:
1) Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day (or water equivalent... LOVING decaf green tea!)
2) Exercise EVERY DAY!!! No excuses!
3) Stay in control of my goals when I want to grab a snack... Do I REALLY want that? Wouldn't I rather fit into that amazing dress I have my eye on?


My Program:
Taking it day by day - Things I do every day:
1) Track my food!!
2) Go for a walk - inside or outside, depending on weather.
3) Continue with Pilates. It has repaired my body over the past few years & I want to keep moving forward with it!
4) ZUMBA!!! I LOVE it! It doesn't even feel like exercise!



Personal Information:
I am a 44 year old Mom of 3 wonderful children... 2 boys & a girl. I have been married for almost 20 (WOW) years. I live in The NYC area with my husband - BEST guy in the world - & kids. Grew up in NYC & LOVE being here! There is nothing quite like the energy of the city!


Other Information:
I am a very open person, but prefer to remain anonymous on this site because of various factors in my life. I hope that doesn't turn you off. I take being a Spark-Friend pretty seriously... I don't "collect" virtual friends. I want to develop a circle of mutually supportive people on the site & if I have too many friends I won't be able to give the support I want to give!

    You Can Be Whatever You Want To Be!
    by: Donna Levine

    There is inside you
    All of the potential
    To be whatever you want to be;
    All of the energy
    To do whatever you want to do.
    Imagine yourself as you would like to be,
    Doing what you want to do,
    And each day, take one step
    Towards your dream.
    And though at times it may seem too
    difficult to continue,
    Hold on to your dream.
    One morning you will awake to find
    That you are the person you dreamed of,
    Doing what you wanted to do,
    Simply because you had the courage
    To believe in your potential
    And to hold on to your dream.

    WE ARE GOING TO WIN THIS DREAM AND WE ARE GOING TO BE GREAT LOSERS!! WE MAY HAVE HAD HARD TIMES BUT LETS DUST OUR SELF OFF AND KEEP PUSHING!! IF YOU HAPPEN TO GET OFF THE WAGON THIS WEEKEND (THATS OK) DUST YOUR SELF OFF AND START OVER (HOLD ON TO YOUR DREAM) EVERYDAY WE ARE ONE DAY CLOSER TO IT!
    Hugs,
    Kermie67/ Rhonda :)
