Mission Possible: Reclaimed Health

I'm Missy, a 53 year old mother of four, grandmother of a beautiful three year old little boy and three month old little girl, with one kid still at home (my baby, Melanie, 14). I am blessed to have a wonderful husband who cheers me on in all I do. He's CaptainCookie here on SP. I'm from New Orleans and now live just northwest of the city. A common greeting here is, "Where ya at?" Native New Orleanians are often, therefore, called Yats. I usually use the nickname NOLady, for New Orleans ...

A common greeting here is, "Where ya at?" Native New Orleanians are often, therefore, called Yats. I usually use the nickname NOLady, for New Orleans Lady, but that conjures up all kinds of questions. lol I have worked at home for over 20 years as a transcriber for court reporters, physicians, and others. That means I've sat in front of a computer monitor for untold hours at a time and grown fatter and fatter, eventually being a slug who never moved and then a slug who COULDN'T move. At my biggest, I became insulin resistant and put an extra 100+ pounds on my already very overweight body. No more! I've lost 74 pounds so far and still have a lot yet to lose. *PHEW* That sounds impossible, doesn't it? It's not. It IS possible! I'm making baby step goals for myself, one week at a time, and so far, I'm attaining them! I'm excited about the new me emerging as the rubble of a lifetime of bad habits is cleared away. The folks here at SparkPeople have been so encouraging and compassionate, and I'm delighted to have found this place!

Member Since: 5/21/2009

SparkPoints: 93,868

Fitness Minutes: 11,850

My Goals:
To become healthier and more energetic.

My Program:
My program has changed! SO much. It's all good!! Now I stay within the guidelines SP has set for my calories, carbs, fat, and protein when I can. More often than not I can't quite get all the calories or fat in, but I get close. Balance is such a wonderful world!! It's one of the finest things SP is teaching me. What hope there is!!!

I attend water aerobics three to five times a week and add a session or two of low-impact aerobics in to boost things a bit when I can.

Personal Information:
My husband (CaptainCookie here on SparkPeople) and I share our SparkExperience. When we're not here, we are enjoying FaceBook and a family oriented chat network called StarLink-IRC, which we hope will have a SparkPeople channel soon. We'll be happy to direct you there. Just ask!

Please join in prayer for the young family shared about in my recent blog. And, if you feel led, please share this need with other siblings-in-Christ.

God bless!

A reminder for this last day of emoticon May 2014 emoticon , as we head into the new month of emoticon June 2014 emoticon , with all its wonderful possibilities of getting each day of personal choices right. emoticon

Our Abba expects that His kids take care of the temple He has "assigned" to us on this earthly pilgrimage. May we continue to do His will in all areas of life!

God bless!

"BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD"

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

Again, Congratulations Beautiful!
