I starting losing control of my weight and my health when I had my knee replacement in December of 2009, and for a long time I used that surgery as the reason I was gaining weight. Even though I joined SparkPeople, I kept gaining and gaining weight. I realized I used my surgery as an excuse for eating anything and everything. Unfortunately, I didn't know how to stop my bad behavior. I even went so far as to quit SparkPeople because "This will never work for me so why bother!" Well, I am ...
I starting losing control of my weight and my health when I had my knee replacement in December of 2009, and for a long time I used that surgery as the reason I was gaining weight. Even though I joined SparkPeople, I kept gaining and gaining weight. I realized I used my surgery as an excuse for eating anything and everything. Unfortunately, I didn't know how to stop my bad behavior. I even went so far as to quit SparkPeople because "This will never work for me so why bother!"

My Goals:
Lose 60 pounds by the end of December 2013 in order to lower my blood pressure and reduce my chance of developing Type II Diabetes. By doing this I hope to be able to live life more fully.

My Program:
I have revised my eating concentrating on fresh, whole foods. I will ease back into my weight training to keep from over-doing at the start. I will celebrate every triumph no matter how small, and not beat myself up when I make mistakes.

Thank you so much for the comment on my blog. It is so freeing to finally see myself as I am. I am getting rid of all the negative self talk. It's not holding me back any longer!

Thanks for the blog comment - Fingers crossed, but I think I'm slowly getting into the frame of mind that life will go on if this is it - and really, if it is... it's not a bad way to live at all!
