In January, I will begin the 2014 Winter 5% Challenge. I love these challenges as they really do hold me accountable and help me to stay on track.

As always, I will strive to reach my 5% weight loss during the 8 week challenge. I was not able to achieve that during the past three challenges so I am hoping for success during this challenge.

In January, I will begin the 2014 Winter 5% Challenge. I love these challenges as they really do hold me accountable and help me to stay on track.

As always, I will strive to reach my 5% weight loss during the 8 week challenge. I was not able to achieve that during the past three challenges so I am hoping for success during this challenge. I know that I have got to get back on track and be good so that I do not become a diabetic. I have learned this past challenge that I really do need to stick to exercise and a certain way of eating. I have had some health problems, DH has his problems, and my youngest daughter is going through a lot of health problems too. I have let stress and anxiety take over my life and not doing the things I need to do for myself.

I went to the dr today and will get the results of my blood work in a couple of days. I was very disappointed that I had gained 10 lbs and I am just praying that my A1C doesn't go any higher than the 5.7 that it was last time. I had it down to 5.5 so I know that I can do it again. I am 61 and my mom passed at the age of 66 from diabetes. That is just 5 yrs older than I am now! She was taking 2 shots of insulin a day. I am not there yet and I don't want to be so I have got to turn things around now!

I will be continuing on the diabetic diet the dr gave me. It has been working for me. normal range. I have since then though kind of fallen out of my routine and have gained a couple of pounds back. In March my AiC was back up to 5.7 so I know what my limits are.

I will be committed to my team, team mates and myself. I will log my food, exercise daily using the treadmill, Leslie Sansone walking dvd's and other exercise videos as well as walking outside with the temps being cooler. I have also acquired the Rocking Body exercise program and I will be trying that during this challenge. I will encourage my teammates, comment on blogs, send goodies and anything else I can do to help keep them motivated and be successful. I will strive to do at the minimum of 60 minutes of exercise for at least 5 days a week. I also have the Zumba Dance game for the Wii and I am looking forward to using it. I will weigh in on Saturdays and I will do the Living the Good Life Challenges and post results. I believe that this will be my 8th challenge with the MIGHTY DAWGS!!

I am really looking forward to this challenge and I am ready to go.

My Goals:
Ihope to continue losing weight to avoid heart problems and diabetes as these are two health problems that run in my family. I am currently on a diabetic diet as I was borderline on being a borderline diabetic. I will exercise every day and drink my water. I am participating in the 5% Winter Challenge and want to meet my goal during this challenge.

My Program:
I have a treadmill and an elliptical that I use at home. I also have several other exercise machines and various exercise videos I use. I use the pre-diabetic diet now and of course I use the tools available for me here at SP! I am slowly making progress and I know that one day I will reach my ultimate goal. I have dropped my A1c from 5.7 to 5.5 so I am in the normal range for not becoming diabetic.

Personal Information:
I am 61, the mother of 4 and have my 12 grandchildren. My husband retired from the Navy after serving for 27 yrs. I got to live in Rota, Spain and I also got to visit Bermuda. We will celebrate our 42nd wedding anniversary this year.

Other Information:
I live in TN and I am a retired Teacher's Asst. I worked with special needs children and I miss them terribly. I am trying to get use to not working every day and this is really a hard thing for me to get use too. I have developed some bad habits since I retired, like staying up to late and sleeping in too late. Things have got to change and get back into a regular routine.
