Biggest Goal---Saving My Life

Self-destruction has many agents; mine have been gluttony and sloth. I have plenty to live for; sick and tired of being sick and tired-- ate myself into diabetes and severe high blood pressure; parts of me are beyond repair so having to adapt to limitations. I have weighed over 200 lbs since July of 1997 (highest weight 245) ; enough is enough!!
I actually have goal measurements more than a goal weight; my highest waist measurement was 51 inches and I want it down to 28. Much ...

I actually have goal measurements more than a goal weight; my highest waist measurement was 51 inches and I want it down to 28. Much research has convinced me that about 145 lbs is a good, workable goal weight for me--maintained close to that weight for a long time in the past, especially once I add some more muscle.
I want my hourglass back (tired of being shaped more like a barrel)...here's to success!!!

My Goals:
Getting my weight down to 145 from my worst of 245 should get rid of my high blood pressure and control my Type 2 diabetes--no longer dragging around 100 lbs of dead weight should help my fatigue and foot and knee pain a lot!!
Working on developing an adapted exercise program, taking my foot/hand/knee damage into consideration; a strong heart and strong muscles will enable me to do all I need and want to do!!

My Program:
Food: Priority #1 is getting blood sugars stabilized, emphasizing foods from Groups 1-3 on the Ornish Spectrum (mostly vegetarian plus fish/seafood). Allergic to wheat flour/pasta, millet and bell peppers, so choices are a bit limited but I can manage just fine. If it isn't delicious I'm not going to eat it!!
Exercise: Lowest possible impact a must due to torn-up, neuropathic feet so re-learning how to use good home pedaler, body weight, free weights, Pilates etc.
Attitude: treat myself like I matter--made my body into living sacrifice for enough years to essentially ruin my health so now focusing on getting well and taking care of ME.

Personal Information:
Tired, lumpy, disabled middle-aged Respiratory Therapist returned to near Cincinnati after living w/ adult daughter for two years in Kansas City (originally from SW MO) . Fed up with being chronically ill which is mostly due to chronic self-neglect and food abuse.
Live w/ husband who has serious mobility and breathing problems and four spoiled-rotten assorted purebred cats. Major task this year is resuming decorating and refurbishing our modest but cute elderly house.

Other Information:
Love sewing and needlework (bought yarn as souvenirs in both Ireland and Alaska) but must limit time spent on them d/t arthritis and neuropathy in hands so I read a lot instead. Really enjoy recipe collecting/inventing; learning how to make healthy versions of my ethnic faves.
Also really into purebred cats; ask me about Cat Fanciers Association shows!
