Linda's starting over

Hi, everyone. I thought it was time to update my intro. At my highest weight (298 lbs before SP) I was miserable. I hated myself, how I looked and how I felt. I was and still am terrified of what health issues my weight affects. Diabetes, heart problems, and cancer run in my family. I know there is a probablity of me developing at least one of them, but I'm trying to delay that as long as possible.

After many years of caring for my ill parents, the time has come for me to ...

SparkPoints: 18,014

Fitness Minutes: 29,622

My Goals:
My goal is to become healthier. I'm not really looking at what the scale says. It's more about how I feel, physically and mentally.

My Program:
Eat some fruit with breakfast.
Eat some fruit or vegetables at lunch. Make lunch at home.
Eat a more well rounded dinner.

Cardio on the treadmill.
Strength training- haven't decided yet.
Core training- still researching. Might try pilates.

Other Information:
The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them. Even the most tedious chore will become endurable as you parade through each day convinced that every task, no matter how menial or boring, brings you closer to fulfilling your dreams.

Do you like your Fitbit and still use it? I am so worried that if I get one I will be enthralled for awhile but then give it up like I do most gadgets/gym memberships, etc.

Thank you for your kind sympathy on my blog last week. It was a really tough week, but I'm starting to peek out and face the world again.
