This Sunny Gal wants to see some progress!

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!

Fitness Minutes: 29,143

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.

All year long we focus on Healthy eating and moving the body to become fit. We do this for a chance to live life to the fullest. This fullness is to be shared at the dinner table at the holidays, not by what you put in your belly, it is to be measured from the joy you receive from being grateful for one more year with your loved ones. We do not get a guarantee to have another year with everyone you see, so make the most of the moment, and leave the worries for another day. Happy Holidays to you my Friend!

I'm in Lake Havasu...and LOVING it here, even in the summer! emoticon
I am a California escapee, like most everyone else that is full time in this town. The winter weather can't be beat and even though the summer is so very hot, emoticon I enjoy the awesome spectacle of mother nature's monsoon storms. emoticon

Go CARDS! emoticon
