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!

May 2015 Update: Following my last foot surgery, my focus in April was increasing my exercise back towards my normal levels. Now that I can get 5 miles of walking or 16 miles of cycling done, I feel much better!! That level of work brought some water weight gain on the scale ...C'est la Vie!..so this month's goal is to see that drop.

"Notice to Scale: its all gonna be downhill from here!"
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....

Thanks for your comment on that Beck blog Chapter 4. Just to clarify, although I find it helpful to reboot, I'm not starting over: have maintained a 90+/- pound weight loss for some 14 years, keeping in my size 8s (some size 6s) all that time.

If I stopped doing my ab crunches, my abs would lose tone right? And if I stopped practicing the Beck brain training techniques . . . yup, same thing is a possibility.

Thanks for your kind words. Afraid the kittens are lost to this world. Over two days now and not a sign or sound from them :(

Thanks for your comment on my activity feed about 300 days of logging in. Until this year I was never home either and life was too busy. Now I have retired and our move is complete. We live in a small farming community and there isn't much to do here. SparkPeople is my connection to the outer world. I think it is saving my sanity. I appreciate you reaching out.
