2013 and a New Me!

Hi, my name is Diane. I am a chronically overweight 65 year old woman. I have been struggling with weight my entire life.

I have dieted about 8-10 times in my life to lose the weight, only to gain it all back again with a few additional pounds for good measure.

With the help of SparkPeople.com, I am committed not to a diet, not to a program, not to just a temporary fix, but a true lifestyle change!

Hi, my name is Diane. I am a chronically overweight 65 year old woman. I have been struggling with weight my entire life.

I have dieted about 8-10 times in my life to lose the weight, only to gain it all back again with a few additional pounds for good measure.

With the help of SparkPeople.com, I am committed not to a diet, not to a program, not to just a temporary fix, but a true lifestyle change!

Now that I have reached my goal, I will work very diligently to keep me at a healthy weight for the rest of my life. I can do this only with the help and grace of God.

I have succeeded in losing 35#. I would like to take off another 5# just for the sake of insurance that I will stay at my goal of 128# or lower for the rest of my life.

I feel great. My cholesterol numbers dropped drastically and recently my doctor took me off the statin drugs used previously to control my high cholesterol. I am controlling my own numbers now by eating healthy foods and loving what I eat and the results that I'm seeing.

This is the new ME in 2013.

Fitness Minutes: 48,231

My Goals:
Resetting my goals today.
I have managed to lose most of my goal weight, bouncing from 129-131, but staying in a range I am comfortable.

I plan to challenge myself in regard to exercise. My routine is just that, routine.

I need to change it up every day and maybe that last few pounds will finally go away for good.


My Program:
By keeping fresh fruits and vegetables on hand at all times, following tips and recipes on SparkPeople, I have the confidence that I will be successful in reaching my goals listed above. SparkPeople has been the greatest accidental meeting I've ever had.


Personal Information:
I live in Northern Illinois, lifelong Midwestern girl. I love the 4 seasons and could never live where the trees are always green. Once you experience the beauty of autumn in the northern regions of this country, it would be so difficult to miss out on that phase of nature. I'm a 65 year old wife, mother of 2 sons and grandmother of 4. I am a retired massage therapist.

Other Information:
I love going to the movies, dining out with friends, spending time on the water with my husband, fishing or reading a book while he fishes. I love living in the country, wide open spaces, fresh air and campfires on a summer night.

NANADEE,

Thank you for visiting my blog "Make Friends With Your Food".  I believe it could be helpful to many people struggling with food.  If I you believe the same please pass it along to your friends and other teams.  This comes from my heart and my main goal in my life right now is to help as many people as possible in their weight loss/health journey.  I'm including a link to the blog but it will not work in a comment but at least you will know where to find it.

Thanks for your help.
