Down Home in Indiana

The journey begins with one step....ya know, it took me a long time to move from thinking about losing weight and wishing it would just start to disappear to actually taking responsibility for putting it on and for getting it off. I want to be healthy and fit, stronger with endurance. I want to see if I can get my BP down by exercising and losing weight. I want to accomplish this for me and for those I love and who love me.

Fitness Minutes: 52,996

My Goals:
My goal is to help myself be as healthy as I can be so I can enjoy my life to the fullest. I want to stay active and engaged in life!

My Program:
Eating more veggies and fruits, healthy proteins and fats and very little gluten and sugar as these seems to inflame my arthritis.
Exercise is a key element to losing weight and maintaining once I reach my goal weight, as well as for the arthritis. Movement is healing.

Personal Information:
I'm from northern Indiana and working full time. I have 2 children and 4 soon to be 5) beautiful grandchildren who live too far away. I belong to the "over 60" crowd and I'm loving it!

Other Information:
"Integrity" is my word for life. I like the wholeness and completeness of the word and the intent to allow the pieces to all originate from the center rather than trying to make the pieces fit a path that is not my own.

Deb, I'm also on a gluten free diet to calm inflammation - have palindromic arthritis and this has helped. Cutting out sugar has also helped. If you need any gluten free recipes or ideas or anything, just contact me - been doing this for several years now. I hope it works as well for you as it has for me!
