Seniors Can Learn

Hi !
Glad to see you. Yuki is " the bird " my name is Mary.

I am a Senior, just turned 65. Like most of you I struggled with my weight problem for years. Being a single Mother I put myself on the bottom of the list.
When I first started Sparkpeople a few years ago I couldn't overcome my all or nothing attitude. I became overwhelmed gave up and dropped out.
Although I dropped out I never gave up my new exercise program of using my treadmill daily. Oh ...

When I first started Sparkpeople a few years ago I couldn't overcome my all or nothing attitude. I became overwhelmed gave up and dropped out.
Although I dropped out I never gave up my new exercise program of using my treadmill daily. Oh my was I out of shape, I could only walk 10 minutes at a time. very slowly. Days I wanted to give up but I didn't and then it got to be a habit... Thank you Sparkpeople .
Last year, I decided I needed to work on the eating part of my journey...guess where I came? yup! back to Sparkpeople.
Even though I was doing the treadmill at 3.5 mph for 60 minutes 2 x's a day 50 % of the time I wasn't loosing any weight. I was a junk food junkie...binge eating most nights.
I started slowly I started by not eating junk food one day a week, the next week no junk for 2 days that week. You get the picture.
My next step, was to cut out processed foods. Add more real foods, cook at home.
The last step I took was to plan, plan, and more planning. I now make out a weekly menu, if I know I'm going to have a busy week, I will cook a few meals on Saturday... so I only have to heat them up in the microwave for my crazy days.
I started going the the YMCA this summer, not only to do weights but for socializing.

I haven't felt this healthy and fit in years!
Thank you SPARKPEOPLE!!!!!

“Get Off The Scale!

You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.

It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!”

(Steve Maraboli)
