Welcome to my page...please read my story

I am a full time care giver to my husband who has Dementia. He was diagnosed 3 years ago at the young age of 60. It has been quite a journey but we both know that without knowing the LORD ...this journey would not be possible.
In the beginning of this journey...I began to put on weight...this was how I controlled my stress. In a year...I had put on 20#. I didn`t realize how "fluffy" I looked til my daughter posted a picture of us on Face Book and realization set in. It is true...pictures ...

I needed to take care of myself, so I could be the best I could be , to take care of my husband.
I made a year goal in Sept. 2012 til Aug.2013 to lose the weight and I did. I had a vacation we were going on to Santa Barbara and I wanted to feel the best I could. I did attain that goal.
Now, Feb 28th, 2014...I have set another goal. We are planning on a 2 week vacation in June to hike Bill Williams mt. in Williams, Arizona. This is a famous mountain with an altitude of 9300 feet. 20 years ago..we hiked it 2X.
I am training for my goal now, by joining LA Fitness and building up endurance as well as strength.
I have accomplished enough to not be afraid of the hike in June I am confident I CAN do it an I am excited to do others around the area.
Oh, I`m not finished yet, I still have a ways to go before I am totally ready...but I WILL be ready.

My Goals:
I know this is a goal that many of us want but it is the best for me.
I want to lose my last 20# once and for all. I not only want to lose it.....I want to KEEP it off and never put it back on again. I want to be a true size 12 and forever get rid of my size 14s and 16`s. I have weighed over 200# and never want to reach that again.

My Program:
I will eat 1200 -1300 cals a day and get into a 30 minutes exercize daily routine (or at least 4X a week.)

It was such fun to see your comment on my page! I am doing well, Eldon is better, hasn't fallen for a couple of weeks and is healing from his shoulder injiury. We're enjoying a bit of welcome warmer weather! Have been outdoors some enjoying the sunshine.

Good plan to have the washer NOT drain into the septic! I think that may be part of why my Mom used a wringer washer when I was growing up. Along with the fact we were not on a public water line, had a cistern so conserving water was important.
