My Goals:
So, I am going to shake things up a bit... Let's see if THIS will work. I need to become more accountable
1/22 227 BIG ICK
1 pound per week. This I am going to try and do. Eat better, Move more, it's a pound, I can DO a pound, but gee whiz, 52 pounds this year, sounds so much better than 1 pound this week...

My Program:
I need to remember what I am putting in my mouth .
I need to remember that if I canít (wonít) walk because itís cold out, I need to move in another way.
I need to remember that if I donít burn calories, I will not continue to lose weight.
I need to remember that whole foods are better than processed foods.
I need to remember that this is a journey to the rest of my life.

Personal Information:
I joined Sparks a couple of years ago, and every once in a while I would post what I ate. This spring (2010) I decided I would make myself more accountable. So, here I am, 50. WOW how cool. I am 50. Now the flip side of that is I often don't think I have changed the world, I think I thought I would. I didn't invent anything that changed the world, People don't say, Oh, there she goes, you know, she founded... Updated..
1/14 I am still here, I am now 53, and I am still on the journey, and I WILL NOT GIVE UP.

Other Information:
To wake up every day grateful for the things I already have. To remember that life is a gift not given, and that if I don't do something about my weight, I may not have a long life, which I need, and so does my family.

I go to the doctor on the 28th but it is just to make sure I'm doing okay. I only went to physical therapy for about 4 weeks and only once a week. I was at the top of the exercises they wanted me to do so it was decided that I didn't have to go anymore. I still have to do the exercises twice a day until Halloween. I have good days and bad days. I think I have bad days because I do too much on the good days. I'm just just 5 months out from surgery and the doctor said it could take up to 9 months to heal completely.

I can not believe it is September. I'm surprised at how fast the time is going. I thought it would drag since I will be retiring in April of next year. I can hardly wait to be able to sew and crochet along with fishing and traveling to my hearts content. I don't believe I will be bored in my retirement.

I certainly hope things are going well for you. Do you like the winter time? I personally don't mind winter but my husband hates it. He wants to go south for the winter. We may try it in 2016 we have a good friend near Phoenix that has an RV hook up at their house that has been bugging us for years to come stay with them for a month or two.

Have a wonderful day and enjoy the glorious fall season. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thanks for the shoes. I was just thinking that when we go to Grand Junction this weekend if we have time I would look for a new pair. I was released from having to go to the therapist on Monday but I have to keep up the exercises until Halloween
