O M G it has been THREE YEARS since I have been on here. So much has happened and unfortunately I have let my fitness routine fall by the wayside and with some very recent weight gain. I need to get active. Biggest change is I moved to a sedentary job environment and combining that with increasing skipped workouts has gotten the results you would expect.

Well my journey brings me here and I am encouraged by my past successes and all the success I witness from spark members. I am taking baby steps and with your support and God’s help will be back on track.

Watching the Olympic Atheletes really makes me feel LAZY!

Greetings from Florida!!!!

Member Since: 9/1/2006

Fitness Minutes: 4,354

My Goals:
To reach and maintain my goal weight for life.

My Program:
I am not saying this is ideal but this is what I am doing now. It is an improvement from where I started.

Monitoring my calories and eating more nutritious foods, walking, stretching and some light strength training.

After a couple weeks I am going to follow a more structured program.

Monitor calories.

Personal Information:
My weight climbed AGAIN after abandoning spark and letting life get in the way again. I truly need to make a lifestyle change that is PERMANENT.

I am back again and plan to tackle this once and for all. I was happy with myt weight 3 years ago and know I can achieve that or even better.

Given my current age I can't afford to keep yo-yo'ing up and down the scale and truly need to solve what is keeping me from maintaining a healthy weight.

Other Information:
Glad to be back. Let's motivate each other to our goals and have some fun along the way.

    Hi, Well thank you for stopping by my page and commenting. I believe laughter is a true gift and we should make a point of laughing many times each day, first thing in the morning before even putting my feet on the floor; I praise God that I woke up and that he offers me another day of life to live. Then smile and laugh out loud or to yourself that your nighty is up around your neck and you didn't even mind your rear was hanging out....and either did the hubby! Laughter and finding humor is so much better than anger and disappointment. Have a great day filled with smiles and laughter but most of all love.
