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.

The doctor has been pleased with my progress. I go back next Tuesday. I'm not sue if I will have x-rays then or the next week. I'm generally feeling okay, well enough to be working half days. That is good for me. How are things with you?

I know how hard it is to do everything "right" . I'm trying really hard to eat less right now because of the lack of exercise. We do the best we can and just a little more and we should be okay,

I had a grest side effect fron the pain pills. No appetite; therefore I didn't eat as much and my stomach shrunk a bit. I'm eating about 1/2 of what I was before the surgery. As a result I'm about 7 pounds lighter than I was before the surgery. I don't think everyone should go to such extremes to get rid of excess weight'but I'm not complaining. emoticon emoticon

Thanks for stopping by and checking on me. I went to the doctor yesterday and he is pleased wifh the healing. I go back Tuesday to have the stiches removed. I'm up moving around and doing quite well. Not ready to run a marathon yet though.

I will probably be able to go back to work at least 1/2 days either next week or the week after. I'm so glad I have the scooter inztead of crutches it is pretty easy to maneuver on.

Take care of yourself.

Thanks again for your care and concern
