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

Re-Group Time!!
I met an interim goal to be under 140 lbs when I had foot surgery in October'13! Following Foot #2 in March '14, I reached back up to 147. I'm now in the process of reversing that "trend"...which will take time but is totally "do-able"!

I'm able to consistently exercise again--WooHoo!!- even though the feet still whine a bit. LOL Walking is my mainstay and I'm back up to 3 miles consistently...Biking is my #2 exercise, and have gotten back up to ...

I'm able to consistently exercise again--WooHoo!!- even though the feet still whine a bit. LOL Walking is my mainstay and I'm back up to 3 miles consistently...Biking is my #2 exercise, and have gotten back up to surviving 20 mile rides. My goal is to increase both those until its 5 miles walking and 30 miles on the bike. Yep...a ways to go yet!!

I'm adding in Resistance Band training for some extra strength training to get my upper body in better shape too!

Most importantly...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 last fall!!

Patti,

I emailed my congressman this morning, and already sent an email back stating that if this is important to call his office in the morning, which I will be doing. This is just ridiculous and uncalled for in my opinion,

Be blessed,

Hi Patti,

Just dropping by to say hi and see how you're doing. Are you off on some great new adventure now that all your surgeries are over? I'm sure you're out there investigating some new trail "Indiana Jones" style. emoticon

Wishing you an wonderful time,
Paula

Thank you for your tip on avocados. I've been looking for ways to add in healthy fats and I will decidedly give them a try.
