Finding out that I am pre-diabetic has re-empowered me to lose weight. I do not want to go on meds. My Doc is also not happy with my cholesterol or triglycerides either. I want to become healthy again and the first step is to change my lifestyle.

I joined 2017 5% Fall Challenge to keep on getting healthy again. External motivation and being responsible for a team effort will help keep me on track.

I decided instead of looking at a mountain of weight to get rid of, I would do it in 25# chunks. I can mentally deal with a 25# goal more effectively than the other.

My Goals:
I am in the process of losing my "baby fat" Even though my youngest is 27+, I never lost the weight gained from him & his older brother.

My weight loss goal for the 2017 Fall 5% Challenge is 11 pounds.

My Program:
Tracking Tracking Tracking. Portion control and being mindful of the type of foods I eat rather than just the calories. Also have added some low impact exercises to help with overall loss and health. My eldest son & I are following a Keto way of eating. It's good to have a family member supporting me @ meal time.

Personal Information:
A New Englander by birth, I have lived in NJ since 1971. I share my home w/ my husband of 44+ years. I have a new reason for getting healthy, my 1st grandchild, Elijah, was born 6/18/17 and I want to be able to keep up with him when he starts moving around!

Other Information:
Hopefully in the next 12-24 months will be living in the Carolina's. Not sure if North or South yet, will figure it out after we sell our NJ home.
