Ready for a new me

MOST RECENT UPDATE 12/30/12 -- Over the past 2 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.

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.

SparkPoints: 59,796

Fitness Minutes: 61,972

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!

Other Information:
Totally into music, movies and reading.

Hi Raelene,
Our little Abey guy just turned six months! He is sitting up! We are going to visit in October. (I miss him so much!)

I must say that I do not have any progress to report. In recent months, my weight has been going in the wrong direction. The only good thing I can say is that I did not gain back ALL of the weight I lost a few years back (just about half, but that is bad enough!!!)

Good luck to both of us! Nice to hear from you!

Rotten potato smell is one of those really nasty odors to track down when a tater at the bottom of the bin starts to go bad...ick! LOL Think I'll be satisfied with the pleasant day and all the not so obvious trophies one gains when doing something like this.

It was great fun seeing you and Dave, sorry we had to take off early but sounds like it gave you some quiet visit time with Debbie and Dave so that's another prize for you! LOL

Giggling as I think about the weirdly wonderful sense of humor you have! Any wonder why we're sparkfriends?

Having resolve is akin to wishing....it don't necessarily make it so. But without it, nothing can happen.
