Update: Oct 21, 2012: 20 pounds are now gone - so slowly! About 20 to go! I am halfway there, or more, depending on the results. I am shooting for 125 to 130. The thyroid, perimenopause and my age make this so difficult. Low carb seems to work better for me (and I love my carbs!), so I have been lowering those and adding more strength training. I need to be more consistent with both food and exercise if I want to get there!

Prior:
The last 3 years have been difficult weight-wise. I quit smoking and then my thyroid died. I need to turn this around. I try to stay hopeful, but fighting my age, menopause, my thyroid and my slow metabolism makes this a hard mountain to climb! So far, I have lost 10 pounds, not even an average of half pound a month. Very discouraging! I need to work twice as hard to get anywhere, but my body just does not want to do it!

My Goals:
Lose weight, shape up, and get healthy. And survive the experience. I would really like to be below 130 again, though 120 is probably the correct weight for my challenged height. But I will be happy with 130!

My Program:
I am working with DVDs, a recumbent bike, a rowing machine and the Wii to get myself back in shape. I need to be more consistent! The Sunny Gal team helps to keep me focused.

Personal Information:
I am married, with one daughter, and two grandkids - a girl and a boy. Unfortunately, they live across the country and we do not see them often enough.

Other Information:
I love to read, garden, surf the internet (especially SP) and play with my puppies.

Thank you so much for your comment! emoticon I take my blood pressure at home, and also every time I remember when we go out to a store that has a monitor. They are very similar. It's really confusing to me. My blood pressure can be 113/72 one day, and today was like 160/80! It was not a stressful day. emoticon That is what really concerns me I guess is how random it is. BTW-I caught the top of my flip flop stepping up on our ramp (it's almost to the top of my knee so big step) and just went down. Should have walked UP the ramp. The first time I fell it was pitch dark in the room and I was a little disoriented to the direction of the bed. emoticon I do get my eyes checked yearly, but I have heard blood pressure can effect your vision too. Worth asking about that! I will not let it rest, so to speak, until I really feel like my health care professionals are on the same page! I determined to feel better! If I do meet with a cardiologist again, it will for sure be a different one! emoticon Thanks again for the encouragement!!!! emoticon

Thanks for reading my blog and commenting. I thought I'd let you know that while I was searching for a recipe for radishes, I actually found one that uses the greens as well. I'm sure they are an acquired taste though, and not everyone would enjoy them.

Thanks again!
