FINALLY... I've Found a LifeStyle!!

Most important...I'm healthier than I was Dec 2012 at 151lbs; and 140lbs is in sight! And I'm NOT stopping until I see it between my toes on that scale. It felt really good to be there before. I know I'm able to do many things which health issues prevent others from doing. So I am grateful and looking forward to maintaining my health as much as I can as I get older. (Medicare is in sight...shheesh!)

Like almost everyone, I have some health issues lurking in my Life. I picture ...

(Medicare is in sight...shheesh!)

Like almost everyone, I have some health issues lurking in my Life. I picture it as sitting at a campfire with the wolves circling: there's one named Pre-Diabetes, one names Gout; one is Metabolic Syndrome...with its offspring: High Cholesterol and High Blood pressure. As long as I keep throwing "good nutrition" and 'exercise" on my fire, I will keep them at bay!

Mar 2015 Update: First day of spring finds me at 147.4, so it is time to get my act together!! I can start exercising more after Mar 30th when I see my foot surgeon to get the pin out-- WooHoo!
"Notice to Scale: its all gonna be downhill from there!"
My long term goal is under 140, hopefully by July summer trip to Yellowstone. I'm planning on standing on top of Mt Washburn at 10343 feet...and I *Don't* want to carry any extra weight up there! LOL

Remember this is a continuing Journey, not a destination!
All the Best on your own Journey....

Starwind, thank you for answering my question about tracking my soidium. Three days in and I'm starting to enjoy this change in my diet and being able to keep track throughout the day makes it so much easier. emoticon

I really appreciate the help and support that we all give to one another on this site. Thanks again!

First, thank you for commenting on my blog. I appreciate the encouragement. As for the picture on my spark page, it is a google image. I agree it is beautiful. I love beautiful scenery but I take lousy pictures.

Going 5 days without chocolate was a small challenge. there were plenty of times I wanted some, but had a piece of fruit instead. I'll have a couple of pieces tonight, then will try to stay off chocolate during the week. We'll see how long that works. LOL.
