Ready for a new me

MOST RECENT UPDATE 2/9/15 -- Over the past 5 years, (see below) I have not made much progress. However, I am still learning a lot from my SparkFriends and about myself. I not gained (or if I did, it was temporary) and I have tried new eating and drinking habits. My age and metabolism are working against me. (Only the dates have changed in the past 2 years. In other words, the only thing I have lost is time.)

12/30/10 -- 230# I recently had an embarrassing episode on the airplane when we took our annual vacation. The seatbelt almost didn't fit!!!!! OMG! Talk about a wake-up call! In pictures, I look like Buddha. This week has been a time to make a plan to reach those goals I set almost THREE years ago!
************************
Hi, here I am, still trying to change! Tried everything out there, including gastroplasty over 20 yrs. ago, fen-phen, etc. and still do not have a handle on eating and exercising. Age 61, retired, no kids at home, travel around quite a bit. Had fibromyalgia years ago, but still think there is some residual symptoms. Neuropathy sometimes a problem; have high BP, borderline high cholestrol & diabetes. Slowly getting back to a walking program after knee probs.

My Goals:
To be a healthy weight so I can be more active - and vice versa! Specifically:
weight under 200# by the end of 2013. Well,THAT didn't happen, with a vacation and the holidays. SO now, my goal is 25# in the next 3 months. Exercise 6x a week for at least 45 min.
Lower Fasting Blood Sugar to 100 or less.
Lower Blood Pressure.
Lower Cholesterol.
Addendum: Lab tests Sept. '10 & '11 were all LOWER! (exc. triglycerides.) Dr. was pleased, as was I, to see that my efforts are showing! Yay for oatmeal!
'12 labs were "OK"

My Program:
Eating more veggies and fruits, less JUNK, less alcohol. I will pay attention to portions. I pledge to do 30-45 min. of exercise every day! (w/ one day of rest)

Personal Information:
Raelene here, living in NW WI, but my heart is in Jamaica! Or anywhere tropical. We have 3 children, 7 grandchildren, no pets. Our goal as a couple is to be there for each other when we are old and gray. Getting there fast!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the kind words. My BS and MS are both in Speech Therapy but I wrote more reports than I ever wanted to write so my writing skills have been honed.

I am still taking Meloxicam for my heel. I'm supposed to be weaning off but I thought for a couple of days I'd resume dosage and then go back to the weaning process. I don't feel too bad today but my heel and thigh are definitely hurting. At least the knee is good.

I'm not looking forward to the snow. I, personally, feel I've had enough winter enjoyment and it can just stop now. I want to plant my garden instead.

Thanks for stopping by my glasses blog. Every year my prescription has a tiny change and I am told it isn't necessary to get new glasses. My old ones were 7 years old though, quite scratched and even chipped in a couple of spots. I was ready. Unfortunately I discovered yesterday that my over-the-glasses sunglasses I like don't fit the new pair. I need something a bit larger. It's always something, isn't it?

My glasses are trifocals. Progressives. I don't really need to reading part much though. I read best without my glasses.

P.S. You're right, I could do Minong. I kind of have been thinking about Two Rivers though.

Honestly, I'm sure that's what we all are really struggling with...wanting the healthy habits and health more than we want those other things. I keep seeing my parents at my age and the decade or two after this age and I want more than anything to have a better quality in the years ahead. Of course I want other things too but I really need to resolve myself to understand where the value lies. I can easily do that with some things, but it's not so easy with others. Hmmm....now I am hearing that old song in my head....I beg your pardon...I never promised you a rose garden. LOL

I love, love, love my pedicure. My hairstylist is just starting to do them and offered a two for one so I will definitely have another. It has to be before the end of November but that's okay. It still looks fabulous!!!

P.S. Thanks for stopping by my corn maze blog.
