For today

I've never been good at focusing on distant goals, so as I work on being healthier I'm really focusing on the idea that "for today" I will be supportive of myself and work to do what will help me in the long run

My Goals:
I start this journey at least 150 pounds overweight. My desire is to be an average sized woman, able to buy clothes in a regular store for regular people. I want to be as healthy as possible so that I can inspire someone else to take this journey and succeed.

My Program:
I am working to take an honest look at what I've done to myself and how I can change my attitude toward myself while I work on becoming more physically fit. I use walk videos several days a week, walke 30 minutes to an hour every night, find corie burning yard work to do, and work out with stretch bands. I work on keeping my calorie count below 2000/day. My main focus really is on changing my way of thinking when it comes to my lifestyle. The Word says "with God all things are possible" and I have to hold on to His promise that what I ask in His Name will be taken care of . I believe with His help I can do this.

Personal Information:
I'm origonally a Kentucky girl, now living in Indiana. I am 57 years old and have a married 27 year old daughter. She and her wonderful husband live in a neighboring town and have an English Mastiff for me to spoil.

Other Information:
"I can do all things through Christ Jesus which strengtheneth me."

I have many hobbies and interests. I go many places and present as a Christian motivational speaker, primarily to women's groups, and sing Southern Gospel music. I quilt, sew, knit, crochet, tat, paint, write, and anything else I can come up with. I garden, mostly flowers, and work in my big yard. God has richly blessed my life and I so appreciate His loving kindness.

Tatter, I decided to come back and get to work on my weight loss. Yes, I gained ALL of it back and then some. emoticon However It is today now! With the Lord's help, it will turn around. I just retired, so I have more time and energy to take care of myself. The Spring has finnaly come to Mn, so the gardening is starting. It can get any better than that! Blessings, Teresa

I hope you don't mind, but I'm visiting spark members that are celebrating our LORD JESUS. Today, we rejoice and celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and King! Alleluia! HE IS RISEN! May the blessings of the Lord guide, protect and be with you always! Sending spiritual HUGS from my home to yours. Have a beautiful and blessed Resurrection Day!

That's so cool, my daughter used to be a waitress and if only people knew how much they actually make without tips, like you do, that'd be so wonderful!

I hope you have a beautiful day ahead for you! And never forget to smile! emoticon

Isn't that the truth, no matter how good of friends they are, if they keep doing things like that, it's time to start thinking about ourselves for once.

I hope you have a great week ahead! emoticon

High winds, hard rains and a good possibility of ice/snow tonight. Very odd Iowa weather. Pray it stays above 32 for us!
