I celebrated my 45th birthday this year. I use "celebrate" loosely as that word implies that there was joy in marking the milestone. Really, I've always believed that you're as young as you feel and act. Well, this year I have to acknowledge that lack of attention to my health has resulted in me feeling older than my age.

Up until the last year or two I haven't felt like I was getting older. Now it's a shock to look in the mirror or at photos of myself. In my heart I'm still the pretty young thing that has travelled around the world and enjoyed so many adventures! That image of myself doesn't match what I see in the mirror.

I'm joining Spark because I want to be around when my 4 yr old daughter graduates, gets married, has children. I want her to be proud of me and to follow the healthy example I will set for her.

My Goals:
My goals are two-fold...losing 60 pounds is secondary to my dream of being physically fit again.

I have weight goals which are going to be hard to measure since I only plan on weighing in occasionally. I prefer to judge based on how my clothes fit and measuring inches lost.

180 lbs -
170 lbs -
160 lbs -
150 lbs -

My Program:
My plan is to stick to the Spark diet as close as possible.

We got a Wii for Christmas last year so I've signed myself up for the 30 day challenge that's part of the Wii Fit dvd.

I also have a variety of other exercise dvd's that I'll put into the mix for variety.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I've been gone from Spark for awhile, but I'm back and determined to get this done. Would love to hear from you if you are still on this journey!

    Welcome to Living Healthy w/Insulin Resistance/Low GI Diet. Glad you're here.

    My DD is 16 now. Adopted her when she was 3 mths old (I was 41!) Some days right now I think to myself, "What was I thinking!" but have so much more energy now, and take care of myself, so those days are fewer by far than before. Once you get started, you'll find that, too, I hope!
