I joined SparkPeople in 2011, and here it is 2017. Six years of trying to get it right and six years of failures. It has been a long and bumpy roller coaster for me. But now I am finally on the right track.

There are no excuses, I would just quit. My eating habits never really changed from eating junk food to healthy food. I just tried to exercise the fat away. I would always jump in with both feet and do good for a few weeks, then give up.

Tracking food was not a strong point for me, did not like doing it and found it bothersome to always have to write it down. Another downside was that I didn't weigh my food, I just guessed about the portions, and yes, I did fudge the portions some.

Exercise has never been one of my favorite things to do. Although I joined a gym and spent an hour there every day on my way home from work, all I really did was walk on the treadmill. Occasionally I would use a few of the weight machines. Looking back now, I believe that I was going to the gym because deep down I didn't want to go home to an empty marriage, so exercise was an outlet for me. The downside was that the more I exercised the more I thought I could eat whatever I wanted because I was exercising.

This last year I have devoted myself to getting healthy. My food choices have changed dramatically. I am eating healthy food. No more junk food or sweets. When I did my grocery shopping last week, the cashier was a young gentleman of about 19 or 20. He rang up my groceries and said "Wow, all you have are lots of fresh vegetables and fruits." I had not realized that everything in my cart was healthy...so I guess it really has become a habit. That was certainly a proud moment for me!

My Goals:
My goal is to become healthier and more fit, which will allow me to be the best that I can be.



My Program:
Eat healthy, don't skip meals, drink more water, exercise.



Personal Information:
Lived in Pennsylvania for many years. Needed a change so packed up and moved to Texas. Visited the area a few years ago and really liked it, so decided it would be a good place to start over. Love the hot weather...no more cold and snow for me. I write poetry, and had my first book published in 2006. Enjoy spending time with family and friends and my rescue cat Daisy.

    Way to go with the DASH program. Yes, I've heard of it, but can't remember what it stands for.

    I'm enamored with your butterfly seat. Gorgeous. emoticon
