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!

Nov 2014 Update: Still having some foot issues (neuroma is the latest.. sigh) that are preventing me from doing everything I'd love to. But I'm way better than I used to be prior to Bunion surgery and Gout Dx. I've started regular Strength Training at YMCA ...its going to help me become more fit. And, contribute to taking off those last 5 lbs down to 138!

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

It never occurred to me to say a prayer for myself, but I actually did, because as I was praying for everybody else, I told God that I'm in there with everybody else, so this prayer is for me, also! Thanks for reminding me!

Blessings!

Thanks for leaving a comment regarding my gout attack. I drank a lot of water, took my Indomethacin and extra dose of vitamin C & cherry fruit extract yesterday and this morning its almost gone!

It's been a while since my last attack but my eating hasn't been the greatest so I'm sure that's to blame.

Thank you again and good luck on your journey,
Lisa
