SHARE our lives WITH others instead of live it FOR others. That would indeed be a goal to meet!

I am a 45 yr old mother of four and grandmother of two. I gained 60 lbs about 10 yrs ago when I used Norplant. My entire body chemistry changed and my metabolism came to a stand still. My diet has always been healthy but about 1/2 of the caloric intake as I should have. I am happy to have stumbled onto this website of wonderful people and inspiration. I've been hooked on The Biggest Loser but haven't been inspired as much as I'd like until I found SP. Thank you for such wonderful modivation and tools to help and guide me along on my journey to good health.

My Goals:
I am currently at 197 lbs. My goal is to lose 50 lbs, to become an active person. One who lives life to its fullest. Currently I'm still raising a couple of kids at home. My routine is a 40 hr week, feeding my family dinner, and housework. Even my weekends are for the major housework projects. When is it time for me. I plan to make exercise my time and to learn to enjoy and crave it.

My Program:
Continue drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Eat more and MOVE, MOVE, MOVE!! I've always eaten lots of fruits and vegetables but have skipped breakfast for years. Now breakfast is one of my biggest meals. Oatmeal with blueberries and walnuts added, coffee and a piece of fruit. Three days a week I've incorporated resistance bands into my physical activity.

Personal Information:
Born in Dover, NH. Family moved to Zephyrhills, FL in 1978, I was 14yrs old. Moved away for 15 yrs, decided to go back home to raise my kids. It's a good little town with all of my siblings and their kids. Some of my old teachers are now teaching my kids...The Circle Of LIfe!

Other Information:
I am a reading freak! I read anything from novels to Prevention magazine on my front porch every night. I put the kids to bed at nine and go to my sanctuary. The neighborhood is dark and quiet so I can let the days stresses leave me.
You should make yourself a special place.

    Nancy- Just couldn't help myself. I've never commented on anyone's page before. You sound like me when I made excueses. I have two daughters in sports. After working all day and taking them to practice and/or games, thought I didn't have time for anything else. It was hard to get started. Now I go to the gym at 6:00am. The girls get themselves ready for school while I'm gone. When I get home I do a load of laundry or load the dishwasher, shower and get ready for work. After work I make supper and the dishes wait til morning while we're off and running. I really hope you find what works for you. I was just sleeping/lying in bed too much. Thankfully I don't have a job that requires "homework". You can do this. Making a schedule works for me - I like checking things off the list. Good Luck.

    Hi Nancy~
    I just added you as a friend so now you HAVE to get a profile pic so my Spage doesn't show you as a blank square! LOL. Glad you are excited and motivated -- that's exactly the attitude you need for success!
    Your new SP friend, Shell

    Hi Nancy, glad to meet you. I'm 41 and my goal is to lose 33 more pounds. I too had the Norplant, but I never imagined it had anything to do with my inability to lose weight. I always believed I sabotaged my metabolism by years of starving myself by eating only 1000-1200 calories a day even while breastfeeding and working out up to six hours a day. Anyways, I started going to Curves because even though it didn't feel like a real workout to me, it was the only way I could discipline myself to go every day after work since I only had to commit for 30 minutes. I love moving my body, so I usually spend about an hour because I extend the stretching portion at the end of the circuit. After going for a month or two, I decided to buy the Member book because I was intrigued by the promise of being able to retrain my metabolism. How revolutionary to reccommend that when you hit a weight loss plateau, you raise your caloric intake! Also, there are two different food plans depending on whether you do better with a higher protein or higher carb diet. You take a quiz to determine this. I started out on the higher carb version based on the quiz, but lost no weight after one week, so I moved over to the higher protein version which makes me feel better and has more foods I like to eat. After four weeks of almost no change, five pounds just vanished and it was 98% pure fat!, more than a whole percentage of body fat! I am not the most patient person in the world. I was just about ready to give up. I mean, I'm the kind of person who works out and is looking for results the next day! I guess what I'm trying to tell you Nancy, is be patient with yourself and find what works for you because we are all different and that is what makes life exciting. I found that when I treat myself with kindness instead of meanness, I get just as much results but I am a happier person who is kinder to others. Walk in balance.
