I am waaaay over 50 and need to get back into shape.  I have not had any major health problems and I want that to remain a fact in my life.  My youngest grandson is 2 years old and as lively as a lit firecracker.  I need to get  in shape and stay in shape for myself and my grandchildren.

My Goals:
I want to learn to eat properly and balance my meals.  I want to approach this as " a change in lifestyle habits."  Diets are negative and temporary in my world.  I don't want to tke off the weight so I can indulge in all those favorite"comfort"foods.  I want to keep in touch with people that will encourage me and teachme.  Hopefully, I will have something in my world that will be helpful to someone else.

My Program:
I track my food intake and my exercises.  I use a Gazelle Edge and a Leg Magic machine.  I walk outside when the weather permits.  I don't do heat well.  I use the Gazelle when I cant walk outside.

I tried to climb the mountain today. As I inched my way up the path, I felt out of breath and had to turn back.
I tried to climb the mountain today. But, It was so hot outside, I thought I had better stay in my nice air-conditioned house and rest up for tomorrow's attempt.
I tried to climb the mountain today. On my journey, darkness started to fall and I was full of fear, so I had to return to a safe place.
I was ready to climb the mountain today. But I had so may other things to do, so instead of climbing the mountain I took care of the much more important tasks; I washed my car, mowed the grass and watched the big game. Today the mountain will have to wait.
I was going to climb the mountain today. But as I stared at the mountain in all it's majestic beauty, I knew I had no chance of making it to the top, so I figured why even begin trying.
I had forgotten about climbing the mountain today, until an old friend came by and asked what I was up to lately. I told him about all my plans to climb that mountain someday. I went on and on about how I was going to accomplish the task.
He stopped me and said, "I just got back from climbing that mountain. for the longest time I told myself I was going to try to climb it but never made any progress."
"I almost let the dream of making it to the top die. I came up with every excuse of why I could not make it up the mountain, but never once did I give myself a reason why I could. One day as I stared at the mountain and pondered, I realized that if I didn't make an attempt at this dream all my dreams would eventually die."
" The next morning, I started my climb. It was not easy, and at times I wanted to quit. But no matter what I faced, I placed one foot in front of the other, keeping a steady pace. When the wind tried to blow me over the edge, I kept walking. When the voices inside my head screamed, stop! I focused on my goal, never letting it out of sight. I kept moving forward. I could not quit because I knew I had come too far to stop now. Time and time again, I reassured myself that I was going to finish this journey. I struggled mightily to make it to the top, but I CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN."
"I have to be going," my friend said. "Tomorrow is a new day to accomplish more dreams. By the way what are you going to do tomorrow?"
I looked at him, with intensity and confidence in my eyes, and said, "I HAVE A MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB."

Weight loss is NOT a physical challenge, it's a MENTAL one.
