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 ...
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 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!!!!!

"Did your mom ever tell you, ‘If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything’?
She was right–and talking nicely also applies when you’re talking to yourself, even inside your head.”

“Starting today, instead of saying "I have to" when discussing your actions or goals, substitute the words "I choose to."...
"I have to lose weight" becomes "I choose to lose weight." Saying "I choose to" puts you in charge and affirms that you want to see results.”

Its day one of the Pound-a-thon, and I just wanted to stop by to encourage you to do your best, one day at a time, to make progress towards your challenge pledge. You are always worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
