Working Towards A Healthy Weight

I am the mother of 4 grown children and have 12 grandchildren. I volunteer at a local gym and at a Family History Center. I am active in my church community too.

I have been a perfect yo-yo dieter for 28 years now. I have been either perfectly striving for a healthy weight or perfectly abandoning any resemblance of a healthy lifestyle. OK, not quite that bad...but definitely eating well and exercising or eating non-nutritious stuff and not exercising.

I am the mother of 4 grown children and have 12 grandchildren. I volunteer at a local gym and at a Family History Center. I am active in my church community too.

I have been a perfect yo-yo dieter for 28 years now. I have been either perfectly striving for a healthy weight or perfectly abandoning any resemblance of a healthy lifestyle. OK, not quite that bad...but definitely eating well and exercising or eating non-nutritious stuff and not exercising.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 I actually got to my lowest weight in years: 163. I actually was eating balanced meals and exercising regularly even through most of 2012. Then I went nuts for some reason I have not been able to identify. Nor have I been able to turn things around. Today, April 18, 2013 I am making an attempt to regroup and get back to the positive behaviors I employed so well in the past.

In August of 2012 I had my right knee replaced. Very difficult. In March 2013 I had my left knee partially replaced. I'm still recovering from that. This is challenging my ability to exercise as hard as I would like...but that will come with time. And in January 2014 I had foot surgery. Boy, getting older is so much fun!? Actually, it is. I just have to keep going, right?

Stopping by to see how you are doing. Hope everything is ok. Your last blog was a week or so ago and I hope you are not being hard on yourself. YOU were doing so well......there is no room for perfection on this journey only doing the best you can on any given day and move forward.
