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 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?
