Hi! Thank you for visiting my page. My journey...Well, I have been on and off of Spark People since about 2011. I am now in my 50's and like others am finding it more challenging every day to lose the weight. I know it can be done since I have done it before, but I am a bit older and now have degenerative disc disease in my lower spine so that has kept me down a little, but I just need to change my focus and strengthen my determination to get going and lose this weight. Maybe less carbs, sugar, and more exercise? Maybe more determination and less laziness? Either way, somethings gotta change! Oct 2020 Covid hit this year, another stumbling block for me, for many. Decided to pick up my P90X workouts again even though I fight DDD. Frankly, I donโ€™t care, I deal with pain every waking day but you only get one chance at life so Iโ€™m gonna do everything I can to make it the best life for me. Decided to UP my game! Gonna attempt to get some walking in (daily if possible) AND kick some P90X (you know what!)...ahhhh I LOVE a good challenge ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ’ช.

My Goals:
My goals are to lose at least 40 lbs, gain confidence and pride in my appearace, have overall better health and just feel better.

My Program:
I am determined to get my mind set to work out daily, eat better, and eat smaller portions. You don't realize how the weight creeps up on you when your portion size is just a bit too large.

Personal Information:
I am married and mother to a wonderful fur baby German Shepherd named Nikita =) whom I love dearly. Family means the world to me. My husband, sisters, brother, their spouses and children and their children's children, my in-laws, my late parents, cousins, etc...I am truly blessed.

Other Information:
Something that helps keep me going when I find myself anxious is to remember to always do good to all people, at all times, in every situation, especially to those people that challenge you. It's not always easy, but it is important.

    Some doors lead to amazing things.
    Some doors lead to...well, not much.
    But the more doors a person tries, the greater the
    chances are that those amazing things will be discovered.

    If you try once and succeed, you're amazingly lucky.
    If you try 1000 times and succeed, you've earned it.
    The only trick is to keep on trying until it happens.โ€
