Wanting to lose weight & stay healthy

I am re-committing myself to lose the weight and get healthy again. I want to make sure I can take care of my mom who has cancer and be able to play with my two grandchildren, one is 9yrs & the other is 20 months, without getting out of breath or too tired. I'm overweight, well, ok...fat. (yes, I actually admitted it)

I've never smoked but I do have exercise induced asthma (go figure, LOL), obstructive sleep apnea, and acid reflux. After research on these, I found one could be the ...

I've never smoked but I do have exercise induced asthma (go figure, LOL), obstructive sleep apnea, and acid reflux. After research on these, I found one could be the cause of the other and they all could be caused from being overweight. I've looked into the Body4Believers plan and have lost 10 pounds so far. Now that the holidays are over, I'm back on it as well as exercising.

I'm trying to eat as few processed foods as possible and intend on growing a garden again next year. I will do my best to get the excess weight off keep it off. I'm a work in progress.

Fitness Minutes: 1,800

My Goals:
I am wanting to lose weight carefully so I don't re-gain as I did years ago when I had lost down to 130 (ended up having my gallbladder removed because I lost 50 in 3 months, way too quick). I hope this will also help reduce my cholesterol, acid reflux, sleep apnea and increase my energy so I can keep up with my granddaughter and grandson that will be here May 2011!

My Program:
1. I WILL incorporate 5 fruits & vegetables throughout my meals per day.
2. I WILL drink at least 6 glasses of water per day (and stop drinking sodas).
3. I WILL choose leaner cuts of meat.
4. I WILL do my exercise of the morning to get my metabolism started.

Personal Information:
"Small-town", North AL

Other Information:
This is NOT a diet. It's a life-style change....a way of life!

I think I will sell all my "diet" books 'cause all I need is 'The Spark' and SparkPeople. ;-D

I haven't done well at all!!
Everytime I start or re-start, I do well for the first few weeks but then something always happens to knock me down and it takes forever to get going again. What's up with that?? I have to figure out a way to NOT get knocked down. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated. emoticon

Thanks for your comments on my blog. I noticed you are on the Huntsville Sparker team. Email me with whereabouts you live, maybe we live close enough we could walk or something.
