I Gotta Get It Right!

(Updated Feb 2013) I'm tired of the doctor telling me I'm borderline this and that. I tried getting my blood pressure and cholesterol under control with diet and exercise. My blood pressure came down and my cholesterol went up, so now I have to take medication for that. In a couple of months I will be cancer-free for 8 years. It's nearly time for my annual cancer checkup. When they do the blood tests, I'd like to see some improvements.

After Christmas I bought a Wii and Wii Fit and have been finding fun ways to exercise. It helps to get me moving more in the winter when I can't be out in my yard and gardens. I also have gotten back on my treadmill that sat idle for WAY too long.

Yesterday I started a new Women's Bible Study called "Made To Crave". It is not a diet, but empowerment to make healthy choices. It is giving me hope. When I got home I got back on SparkPeople. I gotta do this and this time I gotta get it right! (This last paragraph was written in Feb of 2012)

Since I wrote it a year ago I've fallen off the wagon, lol, and have just recently gotten back to healthier eating. I feel much better and even stronger and younger. My BMI is finally in the normal range and I plan to stick with it.

Fitness Minutes: 869

My Goals:
I want to lose another 15 pounds to be where I was when I graduated from high school, and firm up some muscles I haven't used in the past 8 years because of my illness and job.

My Program:
(Updated 2/17/13) I'm using SparkPeople, Dr. Gott's No Flour No Sugar Cookbook, other healthy recipes. I 've started back on my treadmill and added Wii Fit.

Personal Information:
I live in Iowa on a small farm with my husband of 48 years.
I raised 3 sons and 2 granddaughters. I have one adorable great-granddaughter and a brand new granddaughter! A great-grandson will join our family in a couple of weeks. All are beautiful, of course, and more precious to me than my own life.

Other Information:
I'm a born-again Christian. I don't argue religion with anyone, because I know what I know is true. I buried an adult son and survived cancer, only because of God's grace and mercy. No one can disporove that!

emoticon for joining the "I Can Do All Things Through Christ!" team. I wish you much success with your weight loss. Take things one healthy meal, one exercise, one positive day at a time and always believe in yourself that you can do this, one pound at a time. emoticon -- Lou

Thanks for the goodie and comment! I'm so ready to be outdoors and doing some fun activities. Today it's snowing and some schools didn't have classes. Winter needs to end! emoticon

I'm back up to 30 minutes on my treadmill. I'm trying to get my metabolism back on track.
