I started with Weight Watchers a couple of months ago and so far I am happy with my progress. Getting on that scale in front of others keeps me accountable to myself and right now I need that incentive.

I know I must track food to lose weight. For me some kind of exercise has to happen every day or I just don't feel right! That is a long way from a sedentary lifestyle! On my "rest days" I often put on an old movie (I love them!) and will do Leslie Sansome type walking but on a slower basis. I find myself standing up during TV shows and just moving around for a few minutes.

I am ready for this challenge and determined to meet my goals!

I will continue to walk everyday at least 5 days a week. I will increase riding the stationary bike from 40 to 60 minutes and also increase the intensity. I will weigh/measure all food including condiments.

Personal Information:
Hi -

My name is Donna. My DH of 49 years and I live in central Florida. We have recently moved to an active 55+ community and a much smaller house (still getting used to that!). We hope to have more travel time with less to care for around the house. Everything outside is taken care of for us - yea! No more Florida yard work.

I love to read, play computer games, garden and walk. I spend most Saturday mornings at the local yard sales and am forever searching for that special treasure.

My DH and I like to travel - especially cruises. We like unpacking once and sleeping in the same bed every night. And someone else takes care of everything else. But for 2014 we plan to see the USA. We've done quite a bit but have places we want to re-visit and take the grand with us this time.

We are blessed with two grown children (one son and one daughter) and a sweet teen-age granddaughter. We love spending time together and try to take the grand everywhere we go. She still li


Other Information:
I love to read, do all kinds of puzzles, spending time with our teenage DGD but most of all we like to travel. We find cruises the easiest. Unpack once and someone else takes care of everything for us!

    Donna, you can do it!! There's no doubt about it. It'll be hard, but you're already working hard, so there you are. By the way, you'll be almost in our back yard on your vacation!! Have a wonderful trip and enjoy yourself. It's a beautiful time of year to see these places. Be sure to bring a jacket! LOL Hugs, Jeannie

    Donna, I hear you on the painting...my hubby always thinks he can do anything himself. It used to be true, but these days it isn't true at all. But, I try to pick my battles! LOL!! Good luck with the painting and projects!

    Hi there, "Daisy of the Day". We have a lot in common. It is fun to read about our fellow "Daisies". Our home is a log house in some woods and deer and bear are visitors. Our grandchildren are great fun and cruises are some of my favorite holidays.
    Have a successful 5% challenge! emoticon
