**After previously surpassing my goal, I have gained back EVERY bit of weight I lost and more.

I'm working on taking better care of myself again. My goal is to be as healthy as I can. It's frustrating to be back at the larger size but I know that I can do better. I've got to manage stress better and make the commitment to consistently CHOOSE health over comfort.

I joined SparkPeople on March 1, 2010. While recovering from badly broken bones, tibia/fibula, I managed to become stronger, leaner, and healthier.

With hard work and with the help of Spark People, I lost over 20 pounds.

I can be stronger and leaner again!

Previous Goals:
1. Heal from broken leg enough to walk without crutches.
Achieved March 5, 2010

2. Gain strength and stamina to be able to walk a 25 min mile.
Achieved approx. March 10, 2010

3. Gain strength and stamina to be able to walk a 20 min mile.
Achieved March 24, 2010

4. Gain stength and stamina to be able to walk a 15 min mile.
Achieved 05/12/2010

Thanks for you comment on my quilt photo. I had enough material to make two quilts. One for my daughter who loves her veges and one for an auction for my Grandson's school. They were fun to make. Karen

Thank you for commenting on my blog and showing me that you are glad that I am feeling better. Positive energy is what fuels me. You are so right about getting nutrition down as a must in weight loss. I see now that I can go a little while without exercise, but I really need to pay attention to my intake if I want to lose weight. It was a hard lesson to learn, but I think that I get it now! Thank you for always being a source of support and inspiration for me! emoticon
