TIME TO UPDATE

Yes, it has been a while since I updated this page! And I really want to change photos as I have many in my computer but always depend on daughter or daughter-in-law to help me with that. Maybe I will try it on my own.
Right now I am at weight that one weight loss company told me should be goal. But that is still overweight and I really want to lose 10 more lbs. to be where SP recommends.

I am very proud of the exercise I now get when in the beginning I could not walk for 5 minutes due to a bad knee and hip. Today I get as many as 130 minutes of exercise. Especially love the water aerobics, but also enjoy walking and the recumbent bike.
My husband of 56 years supports and encourages me all the time. And I have just started challenges which I enjoy even though I am not a competitive person. But they do keep me on my toes. During the 56 days of the 2010 Winter 5 % Challenge I hope to lose 10 lbs., a real challenge for me!

My Goals:
To Be Healthy and now to maintain my weight loss.
FAVORITE SAYINGS:
Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.
Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to

My Program:
The Nutrition Tracker is my constant buddy as I use it faithfully every day. With my bad knee I didn't think I could exercise much, but now am up to a 40-45 minute walk and 30 minutes of riding the recumbent bike. Losing weight has certainly helped!

We live on the second floor in their Carriage House just a few feet away. We have two more grandchildren who live in Columbus, Ohio. We have a daughter there and a son in Port Clinton, OH.

Much of our summer is spent on Lake Gaston while much of the winter we are in Frostproof, FL.

Thank you for your comment on my 'story' and my blog. As for my children and their eating habits ... I try my best ... and have great support from my husband; but I do have one child that is quite difficult. All I can say is we're working on it :)

emoticon Just stopping by with my motivational quote for today by Ella Wheeler Wilcox:

"There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul."

So, determined soul, press on towards your goals! emoticon emoticon emoticon
