I have the same story as most people on here. I am overweight. I have high blood pressure, and possibly diabetes. I need to lose the weight, I know I do. I know how to do it, because I have been successful in the past. Do I follow the things I KNOW I need to do to lose the weight? I haven't for the last 20+ years, so I decided I needed to get serious and joined a year long weight loss program presented by the hospital. http://liveyoung.skylakes.org/offering=wei

I'm hoping this will give me the tools and the accountability I need to succeed. I joined with my Mom so that we both can also be a support system to each other.

Updating: In 3 weeks, my blood pressure is in normal ranges, which is a HUGE improvement from before (164/117) to now (123/83). I had an A1C test done to check for diabetes and my numbers showed no diabetes. Yesterday after my HUGE Thanksgiving feast, my blood sugars registered 110 on my Mom's meter. My point, small steps bring BIG results. If you think you cannot do it, you won't. If you just make one little change every day, you will slowly see good results. 3 weeks is really NOT a lot of time to see these amazing changes. BABY STEPS will pay off!

My Goals:
I just turned 49 on October 5th. My goal is to live better than I have the last 30 years. I will do this by:
-Getting more exercise
-Eating healthier
-Not making excuses
-Finding things of interest and learning as much as I can about them.
-Getting out and making every day count
-Traveling more
-Meeting new people
-Evolving


My Program:
My current program is evolving. I like using my fitbit to gauge how active I am; however sometimes I don't realize that it does not track so it looks like I have done ZERO, NADA, ZILCH steps. I have joined a Live Young Weight Loss program with our hospital.



Personal Information:
I'm in a long term relationship with my best friend Will (26 years), with no children unless you consider my five Chows my kids. I'm in Oregon & I love it here. The thing that makes me love this state is the beauty all around. I live close to several lakes, rivers, and mountains. I enjoy walking with my dogs in the park & river rafting. I'm only about an hour 1/2 from beautiful Crater Lake and the Lava Beds.


Other Information:
I like 60's - 80's rock music, metal and little bit of country.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My favorite movies are thought provoking or a little on the dark side. I also like movies that are goofy, or the ones considered "chick flicks".
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My favorite motivational quote is actually from a Nike Commercial:
*Your life will not be transformed overnight. *There will be no sudden miracle. But steadily day by day, you will transform into the image you hold in your mind. *Sooner or later, you start taking yourself seriously. *You know when you need a break. You know when you need a rest.
*You know what to get worked up about and what to get rid of, and you know when it's time to take care of yourself for yourself, to do something that makes you stronger, faster, more complete, because you know that it's never too late to have a life, and never too late to change one. Love what you do. Do what you love and let the world go its own way. ~JUST DO IT~

    I have decided that you are tired of me, 6 boxes of cottage cheese and a half a case of pineapple, and a half a case of soup.
    Guess you are tired of shopping. Are you moving or getting ready to?? Get with it so you can save the rent money for a down payment. I have some fence boards if Will wants to get the fence up. He will need 2X4's, Get with it gal, times a wasteing, and speaking of waist, I bet yours is showing now?? Keep up, you can do it. Love you the most. emoticon
