I am a work in progress

I'm a midlife wife, mother, RN, who likes to stay active and wants to keep it that way for the rest of my life. Have been overweight for 25+ years. I love dogs, I have a four year old Bichon Frise named Linus who likes to walk/run then plop down until I carry him.

I'm a midlife wife, mother, RN, who likes to stay active and wants to keep it that way for the rest of my life. Have been overweight for 25+ years. I love dogs, I have a four year old Bichon Frise named Linus who likes to walk/run then plop down until I carry him.

9/8/15- Recently had surgery removing my thyroid and 2 parathyroids due to autoimmune disease making them overactive. Now trying to adjust to thyroid replacement medication. Looking for "just the right dose".

My husband is supportive and joins me in diet/exercising.
My 26 yr old daughter moved home with us in 2012 due to career opportunities in this area. Happy to have her home and joining us in creating a healthy life style.

My 21 year old daughter is living an hour away at college. She broke her foot 5 months ago and gained a bit but has lost it now that she is active again. She is a big inspiration!

My Goals:
1) To lose 24 pounds in 6 months. That will bring me to the 4th of July 2016. I will set another goal after I attain this one.

2) To stay active and live a healthy lifestyle.

3) To set a good example for my family and loved ones.

4) To encourage my family and loved ones in their own goals and to help them along the way.

5) To lose weight while maintaining lean body mass (i.e. muscle and bone density)

6) This is the most important Goal for me right now: To monitor my TSH, T4, Calcium and parathyroid hormone levels. Maintain the proper dose of medication so that I have energy and a clear head.













My Program:
I have to make it simple. My life is too complex already.

1)Stay within calorie range.

2)Walk with my dog two to three miles a day when weather permits.

3)Exercise on elliptical or bike 3-4 times per week.

4) try to strength train with light weights.

Positive thoughts each day to reinforce healthy habits.



Personal Information:
Nature inspires me.


Other Information:
I love hiking, biking, kayaking or just getting outside to walk in the park.

Hi Harriet, it's great to see you back for the BLC. I saw the picture of Linus and thought "I know who that is". LOL Hope all is well with you. Take care.

Hi Harriett, just dropping in to say hello and to see how things are going. I've been in for my artery surgery, and all went well, still plugging away at losing weight, I went with the Azure Team..a very busy team, but tons of support and encouragement! Take care!

Hi Harriett, hope this finds you feeling better! Yes I could kick my butt for trying to rush, and not taking the time to take the books out, I still think I'm 20 lol! I worry about things with these feet, they are quite bruised and sore..I have a friend that is losing his foot to diabetes..scares me stiff!
Take care, keep in touch!
