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 weighed over 200 lbs from July of 1997 (highest weight 245) until early Sept 2015; 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 ...

I actually have goal measurements more than a goal weight; my highest waist measurement was 51 inches and I want it down to 28 w/ the rest proportionate. My final goal of 145 lbs will put me in healthy BMI territory--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: Refusing to suffer for the sake of a food plan; if it's not delicious, I'm not going to eat it! Using Ornish Spectrum emphasizing groups 1,2, and 3 d/t persistent health issues; long term goal is to develop an effective, sustainable lifestyle.
Exercise: Designing a plan working around my limitations (very painful ruined feet etc) so using a 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 better and taking care of ME.

Personal Information:
Tired, lumpy-but-shrinking, disabled middle-aged Respiratory Therapist returned to near Cincinnati after living w/ adult daughter for two years in Kansas City (stepson lives in Anchorage, AK); 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); if arthritis and neuropathy in hands give me problems I read 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!

Dukan is a great diet. I can't eat all of the carbs that South Beach phase 2 recommends either as I have hypoglycemia. I hope you find some good recipes.

It was great to hear from you!!

I hear you about the ruined feet. After my 20 years working as a nurse nearly everything I had was wreaked in some way or another.

Missouri is a beautiful state. We have vacationed there a couple of times.

We love it here. We are the foothills of the Missouri Ozarks.
