My Goals:
I want to lose at least 130 pounds because my knees are getting really bad. I want to be upwardly mobile for a long time!

I use the nutrition tracker and the activity tracker. I am walking at least five days a week for 50 minutes a day and staying within 1200 - 1550 calories to lose 2 pounds weekly.

Personal Information:
I am Kay, 64 years young, and live in Townsend, TN. My husband (of 44 years - a keeper) and I are retired educators and camp about six months a year - usually out West/Northwest in summer, Outer Banks of NC and coast of SC in fall, and Florida Keys for the winter.

Other Information:
I have three children (twin daughters and son). The girls are married and each has a son and daughter (My FabFour). My son is not married -- yet. I still have hopes he will find the right one!

I am so sorry to hear about your sister, but it is the best comfort knowing you will see her again. I am doing great!! I have not lost more weight, but I am still at 100 pounds lost when I weighed yesterday. Whew! The biggest thing for me is to learn to maintain!! I would love to lose at least 20 more pounds, but I can live with me this way. hahaha!! I am getting my energy back. We did a 6.6 mile hike last week and another one almost 5 miles. I am not doing any steep hikes yet, but I am so thankful to be able to do more!!! My mom is being anesthetized tomorrow for the urologist to check her kidney for a possible tumor. She is 90, as is my dad. Our goal is that she not suffer. We fear Dad may insist on doing whatever they can do to keep her going as long as possible. Our prayer, of course, is that they do not find a tumor, as indicated on a CT scan. Take care and enjoy the day! Rainy here, but mild.

Hi Kay,

Just was thinking about you this morning, and wanted to say Hello and see how you are doing. I had a pretty hard January, I lost my oldest sister on January 9th. Not a good way to start the New Year. There are 7 of us and she was the first one to loose. But I know where she is at and I will see her again.

Hope you are getting along well and the pills are not making you to sick.

Guess I better get busy and start on all the Monday chores. emoticon

I am enjoying every day!! I did a five mile hike Monday and a little over three today. I am beginning to feel more energy and have fewer days when I have no energy to do anything. I am very thankful!! I am even hoping to see some snow in the next few days!!! There is joy in every day!! emoticon

Listen to your body and do what you can. Sometimes that is only getting up and doing the minimum.


Tomorrow will be a better day! Rest and recoup! I'm hoping the emoticon is shining there in TN. If not, try visualizing a day at the beach. Whatever it takes to feel better!

Sadly, the Keys are out this year, but not too sad. I am enjoying my time here, too. We would be arriving there TODAY, if I did not have to stay for the infusions. I can be happy here, too!! We had a great Christmas in SC with the kids and then my parents and siblings and their families on the day after Christmas. The day after we got back home, I had an infusion and oncologist's visit (and blood work). So, yesterday, I had a Jello Day. Actually, Jello may be more energetic than I was. I don't think I jiggled much. All the preparations (cooking) and traveling and visiting and then Knoxville trip for cancer stuff caught up with me. Today I feel sooo much better and have gotten a lot of things accomplished. I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and will have a healthy, happy New Year! I have not been dieting at ALL over the holidays. I will weigh, scream, and get back on the wagon Monday!!! emoticon
