Journey to Health & Fitness

I am a 67 year old female that recently retired. I love being retired. I find it amazing how many activities are out there for seniors…and many of them are little to no cost. I live in “sunny” San Diego, California with my husband and doggie. I am pleased to say I have lost 46 lbs. in the last 2.5 years and now down to 202. I find myself motivated to be physically active but challenging to stay on a healthy eating course. This is why I find the recipes, trackers and other support ...

I also love reading the blogs written by so many wonderful subscribers and find them motivating.

Fitness Minutes: 11,910

My Goals:
I am now pre-diabetic and have borderline high cholesterol and high blood pressure. As such my goals include losing weight and becoming more physical active as a means to improve my health and reduce arthritic pain.

My fitness goals are water classes, elliptical and gym machines. I would enjoy being more active but find arthritis sometimes gets in the way.

My long term weight loss goal is to reach 165 lbs. which is reasonable for my 5’ 4’ height. I expect to reach it by 10-31-16, possibly sooner.

Another goal is to focus on what I do right, not wrong. I tend to be a little bit of a perfectionist so this is an ongoing very worthwhile challenge.

My Program:
Regular physical activity and posting it on Fitness Tracker is a routine part of my program. I also strive to stay between 1400-1600 and follow Spark People nutrition guidelines for fat, fiber cholesterol and sodium. Finally, I find doing regular meditation helps me manage stress. This is important as I tend to overeat when stressed.

Personal Information:
I enjoy playing solitaire, reading, drawing and surfing the net.

Thanks for adding me as a Friend. I just did the same. I smiled when I read you love retirement. I do too! And, you get to live in the city with the best weather in America - lucky you!
Your plan to lose weight over a course of time makes a lot of sense. You've done well so far. I used to always be in a "big rush" to lose the weight but have realized that I always burned out quickly. I am working on patience and just doing the right things - weight loss will be a positive symptom of healthier living.
Have a great March!
