Slowly Losing Weight and Getting Healthy


I'm making this a lifestyle change not a diet!

Dieting always leads to NOT dieting which equals gaining it all back. I am done with that!
It took years to develop my bad habits and I expect it will take years to develop my healthier habits.
I am working on it! I will never give up!
I will get down to a normal weight!

In 2013 I will weigh in EVERY Wednesday.
I will try to lose every week. It's OK when I don't!

I am enjoying hiking most Fridays with my hubby. We are doing about 4- 12 miles each time. We have explored some amazing places!

I go to the gym twice a week. Most weeks.

I have a chronic bladder condition that sometimes limits my activities. I will not let it stop me!

Veggies have become a much bigger part of my diet and hubby, who does most of our cooking, is on board with this change. He has perfected a yummy garlicky veggie mix that we have most nights with dinner and I have in my lunch the next day. Now I am mixing them in with scrambled eggs too.

I still struggle with junk food, especially in the evenings. I need to work on that!

Personal Information:
I am 52, happily married to Tom. We live in Tacoma WA.
We raised 5 terrific (most of the time) kids. Now we are enjoying the freedom of them being grown up.

I work as an assistant manager/truck driver at a distribution center in Kent. I get to drive a pretty blue tractor /trailer.



I like to explore, hike, garden and travel.

There are many wonderful hiking trails not far from my home in Tacoma that I visit often.
I also hike at Mount Rainier every chance I get.
Now that fall is here we are hiking around North Bend. We are loving exploring the trails there.

emoticon It's good to see you on here. I didn't think you got on anymore because your last blog is from 2013, and your status hasn't been updated in quite some time. But now I see you must be using your spark people as your fitness tracker, etc.

emoticon Glad to see how active you still are. It's a great motivation.

Thanks for stopping by! My husband and I stopped the sweets for 2 weeks and it was easier as time went on. Trying to eliminate as much sugar from the foods we eat as possible. SP says try to buy products with less than 8 grams of sugar in it or less. It is hard, but can be done! Keep going! I had been down with a sinus infection recently and then a bad virus, but better today. I am ready to get back at our walking and biking! Hate that it is getting so hot though! emoticon 96 on Saturday!
Enjoy your hiking with the better weather! emoticon emoticon
