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....

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!
