BigT-On the Road Again

So here I am starting over again from square one. My life has been a series of ups and downs for the last 13 years...some big, some small...this down is a very low one indeed.
I have had to re-adjust my sails many times during this time. I have made it through some pretty tough storms, but I am starting to wear down from the fight.
When I joined Sparks 6 years ago, I was a broken person...both mentally and physically. The support of the wonderful people I met here helped me ...

When I joined Sparks 6 years ago, I was a broken person...both mentally and physically. The support of the wonderful people I met here helped me to heal. I lost weight and gained my confidence again.
Then another series of events 3 years ago turned my life not only upside down, but sideways. I have tried to make several restarts, but I just can't seem to get back that old enthusiasm.
I hope this time will be the charm. I have got to get off this weight off and get my life back. It is going to be tough due to recent knee surgery, but I will never succeed if I don't get started.

My Goals:
I joined SP in July, 2008, lost 46 lbs. and was doing a good job of keeping it off...until May of 2010. That is when my world as I knew it ceased to be. In just two short months I had to change jobs (after 30 years), change states (after 53 years) and leave all my family behind. I put back on 20+ of those hard fought lbs. I am trying to get a handle on my eating (and my attitude) once again. I want to lose this "Ohio" weight, I just need to find my motivation again.

My Program:
I am going to track my food and get my 8+ glasses of water a day. I plan to ride my bike as much as I can. I have gotten myself into the habit of riding my bike or walking to do my errands. I love to walk, but I will have to take that slow for a while since having my knee surgery. I just recently found a water exercise program that I will be starting as soon as I get my doctor's okay.

Personal Information:
I am from a small town in the mountains of VA. I am 55 years young. I have two grown children, two beautiful granddaughters, one 8 years old and the other 3 months old. After working at the same place for almost 30 years, I had to transfer to keep my job. I had to move to another state after living in the same county for 53 years. I am learning to live on my own for the first time in my life.

Other Information:
I love to ride my bicycle, go to the beach, and play with my granddaughters as much as possible. I especially like it when I can do all three at the same time!
I love reading good mysteries, watching British mystery shows, and listening to good rock music...old or new.

Thanks for your comments on my "frenzy". I am calmer today after spending more time in the kitchen. You are right that we are blessed. We have shared many things over the years some sad, many happy, but, we will always be family! Wishing you and your family a wonderful and peaceful Thanksgiving. emoticon emoticon

Terrie... I had a good time with my mother and nephew today. I spent 6 hours there. It was nice. I spent time with my mother. Then we all went out for lunch. I had a salad that had cold steamed veggies and grilled chicken on a bed of lettuce. I ate the veggies first. I was surprised that I liked them. It was Broccoli, Zucchini and Carrots. That on top of lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes. Then we walked through the 99 cent only store. Not real exercise but at least we did not just sit around. Then my nephew drove us though some of our old neighborhoods. We did move a lot. But it was fun to see all the old places I used to live and how much things have changed.
