It's January 2021:
Curious what this year will bring.

January 2020 update:
I've been stumbling all over the place.
Looking at my 2019 goal - it was not met. I'm carrying it over to 2020: Build more activity into every day.

January 2019 update:
Still working on those last 10 lbs...
2018 was a lazy year, as far as physical activity goes.
I'm lucky I was able to maintain.
I'll be building more activity into my days in 2019.
Strategy is to plan it, schedule it, do it!

January 2018 update:
10 unwanted pounds have found their way back onto my hips and thighs... Goal is to lose those again.
It's slow going.

Member since March 2007.

Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 10+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Prior to finding SP I had lost 30 lbs doing WW online but was unable to lose the last 10.

After 6 years of fine-tuning, trial and error, I finally reached my ultimate weight goal in early 2013, and am now maintaining within a +/- 3% radius.

I'm hanging out and hanging in, still fine-tuning as I go. Maintenance does not mean you have it all figured out...

My Goals:

My Program:
1. Eat mostly clean and unprocessed
I believe there are no "forbidden foods". Instead I am focusing on the quality of what I eat.
2. Drink plenty of water
This has been a challenge - always.
3. Be active
Zumba, yoga, and hiking are my favorite pastimes.
4. Get enough sleep
Goal is 8 hours.
5. Manage stress
My stress managing methods are exercise, music, and meditation/yoga.
6. Positive attitude
Turn can't into can, and don't into do.
7. Gratitude
Appreciate who I am, where I am, and what I can do.

    Thanks so much for stopping to read my recent blog. Luckily the power has remained on since Thursday. Oh my goodness, without the power, about all one could do was stay under the blankets and quilts day and night. I hope this doesn't happen any time soon, never would even be better. Yes the toll was the stress from not knowing when we would get the power again. Then to find out these outages in several places were made by the directors over the power. Forced the power be turned off knowing the severe cold weather was happening, as the cold was state wide, and outages were ordered through quite a few counties in Texas. So that really does make many discussed with the board appointed by the governor.

    Thanks for the blog love about filling my bobbin and making a mountain will zoning out. That is a treachery of spinning for me-it is very easy for me to zone out thinking about other things because my hands know what they are doing.
