Its about the Journey, not the Destination

I am starting over on my journey to a healthier me. I''ve been here before, but thanks to a fellow SP-er, my outlook has changed. Instead of having tunnel vision to the end of my weight loss race, I''m going to focus instead of the journey itself. Finding joy in little things like cooking well balanced meals for my growing son and the hubby, or knocking time off my 5k on the elliptical. There are so many things that I want to accomplish and there''s no reason I can''t start doing them now. I ...
I am starting over on my journey to a healthier me. I''ve been here before, but thanks to a fellow SP-er, my outlook has changed. Instead of having tunnel vision to the end of my weight loss race, I''m going to focus instead of the journey itself. Finding joy in little things like cooking well balanced meals for my growing son and the hubby, or knocking time off my 5k on the elliptical. There are so many things that I want to accomplish and there''s no reason I can''t start doing them now. I don''t need to wait until I''m a healthy weight to get started. I also started a food blog to keep track of healthy recipes we try and whether they are successful or not. I''m learning that this makes me want to cook more, too. Check it out at shericancook.wordpress.com. Also, taking a page from BOBCATGIRL76, I''m going to post my weight here in an effort to keep myself honest. --- 2015 --- 08/22/15 - 289 08/15/15 - 291 (ugh!) 08/08/15 - 286.7 (not drinking enough water) 08/02/15 - 283.5 07/26/15 - 296.5 (3 days in the hospital for a jump start) 07/20/15 - 306.0 (starting weight). A1C was 10 (!)

SparkPoints: 19,352

Fitness Minutes: 5,438

My Goals:
My daily glucose reading needs to be in a normal range.

Lose 2 lbs a week

Become regular at the gym again (5 days a week)

Start lifting again (3 days a week)

My Program:
I'm using SP's suggested caloric range for my current weight and doing the best to keep within those limits.

I'm cooking the majoring of my meals at home with the help of eMeals.com meal planning. I'm learning to substitute healthier options for high calorie/high carb foods (like using zucchini noodles instead of spaghetti)

Personal Information:
Real name: Sheri
From: Arkansas

I'm a 41 year old mother of a 9 year old. I've been married to my high school sweetie for 22 years (gasp!). Our little boy is the light of our lives and definitely keeps things from getting too quiet around the house.

I work full-time in the logistics field (I help people move freight), in an office where I am not only the oldest, but also the biggest. While everybody else is high energy, planning to run a Tough Mudder, I'm sitting quietly in my corner eating ice cream cake. No More!

Other Information:
Hobbies include: drawing abstract designs in black pen (like my background), scrapbooking, and writing. I am also a Simmer and own every Sims game ever made.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! I went to Road Runner Sports and got evaluated on their Shoe Dog program to see if I needed stability shoes or regular shoes, and I got custom insoles fitted. This might be worth doing for you if you have a store nearby, or a running store that does custom fittings. I wrote all about the experience, with pics, here:

oh my gosh!! you are a sweetheart! Thank you for the SCOOTER...
I just know our doggies would get along together...and just think of all the desert 'wabbits' they could 'play' with together, lol...

LOL, I'm going to attach a sidecar to the scooter you gave me, using duct tape of course. This way you can ride shotgun anytime you feel like an adventure through the desert boonies...and we can both watch the doggies play with all of their 'furry' friends.. :P
