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.

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

"If you have made mistakes...there is always another chance for you...you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down."

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, "In Memory of My Dear Friend, Little_Queen." The Mary Pickford quote was one of her favorites. Have a blessed day.

We must ALL try to stay safe! Thank you for your comment. Part of the trouble here is that the drainage system is still compromised so is easily overwhelmed. We're lucky to still have electricity as thousands of places have lost theirs. Kia Kaha!

"Defeat may test you; it need not stop you. If at first you don't succeed, try another way.
For every obstacle there is a solution. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
The greatest mistake is giving up."

You are posting early today. Have a wonderful day. I wish I was there with you to go to the pool. I could go to our indoor pool if I would just put it on my schedule.
