Rainbowchoc,

I have lost weight. I have said no to things, I have walked my dog at least twice a day. I haven't been perfect but I haven't beaten myself up for detours from the path.
From a place where I wore "unisex" coats in 3XL and wouldn't go to a pool I have a pink mac and have gone through four sizes of "cozzie" at my aquafit class.
From a BP reading (pre treatment) of 225/125 to 106/68 and from a fasting glucose which indicated type 2 diabetes to HbA1c of 5.
Something is going ...

Fitness Minutes: 116,451

My Goals:
To achieve a "healthy BMI"
To wear knee high leather boots in winter
To go to the doctors without being told the problems are weight related
To encourage other people without making them feel inadequate

My Program:
Based loosely on the 80s WW programme, protein with every meal, limited fats and carbs, unlimited veg and fruit. I don't eat dairy or nuts so will never be a vegetarian but have meat free days following overindulgence.
Drinking 2 litres of water a day has been an education

Personal Information:
Married to himself for 37 years. We have retired to Kent, UK and our son lives in America. We are always on the go, travel and visiting friends/family
.

Other Information:
A year of Sparking has created a self confidence I had hidden with bravado and fat for many years. I have learned it isn't too late to change and be renewed.

DOMS stands for delayed onset muscle soreness. You have probably even felt it. You work out today and feel the pain tomorrow! It happens when you haven't worked either a certain muscle group in a particular way or when you haven't worked out in a while. I do abs almost every day but I did this Jillian Michaels workout called No More Trouble Zones and there are a string of ab exercises that almost made me scream.

The crossword puzzle in the newspaper seems to hold my husband's attention better than the TV. I think because of the pain medication, he just dozes off while trying to watch TV. I make him sit up in the recliner after eating for at least an hour. Prior to having this surgery, he has had a lot of episodes of gagging in his sleep which wakes him up and then he vomits. I know he probably doesn't tell his doctor about this. If it is sleep apnea, he wouldn't use the CPAP machine. His life could be easier, but he makes it harder on himself.

Big hugs to you, my friend. I hope you are pacing yourself with caring for your sister, husband and friends.
