I tried to go for this back in Jan. but had a bad fall while trekking in the woods with my dog and I broke my elbow and sent my other arm into an even worse state with tendonitis. I thought I would continue the weight loss journey but the pain I was in proved to be to much and I just gave up. I was far too scared to walk outside for fear I would fall and do more damage. I'm back to work now and although both arms are still not 100% I'm feeling more like myself and I know if I can have just a little success it will propel me forward. In 2010 I lost 54 lbs on Sparkpeople I was known then as GracetoGrace, I'm hoping I can channel into my old motivation and lose weight and get healthy. Dr. Has told me I'm pre-diabetic so I need to make a real change. Good luck everyone.

Update scale says I'm down 2 lbs and my mood feels lighter as well. Thanks Sparkpeople. Baby Steps will get us there.

My Goals:
My first goal is to get back in the habit of eating healthy and doing some meal prep so I don't eat the unhealthy things my hubby who is an amazing cook, but not a healthy cook has ready when I come home from work. I want to reestablish the habit of tracking my food and spending time here at spark. For motivation, friendship and friendly competition or team challenges have motivated me in the past.

My Program:
Will be following the principles of the Simply for Life program.

Personal Information:
I am married, and my husband is now retired. We live in what is known as cottage country in Nova Scotia and share a multi-family property with my daughter and her husband, and I get to see my 2 sweet grandchildren every day. We are excited to be getting a new little grandson this summer. My best buddy is my Golden Retriever "Friday". We feel very blessed to live in this beautiful area. I have 2 adult sons as well but they do not live here.

    I hope that the suggestions were of some help to you. My best friend is "Noni" to her grandchildren, so it is pretty close LOL! I'm just plain old "Granny" to my grandchildren and my great-grandson (who is 3 1/2yrs old and a real little cutie :-)

    As far as exercise, we need to pace ourselves and be aware of what and how much we do, AND how we do it. Good form .... no problems, however POOR form, and it can mean major issues! :-)

    You've got this. Just don't try to do too much too soon!

    Yes, I remember being so confused when I started the 5% challenge. Once you are assigned to a team things will become clearer. Don't be afraid to ask questions of your challenge leaders, they are they to help. Be sure to read through the information given at the Community Page.

    So glad to have you in the challenge. Wishing you much success! emoticon
