Oregon Grandma

I am 69 years old now and still fighting the battle of the bulge. The move from Colorado to Oregon has not helped in the battle yet, but living in a new home in a new state is still in the adjustment stages. At least I'm still fighting my health battles and SparkPeople has been helping me for more than two years now. I lost 22-25 pounds and then gained and re-lost a few again. I switched to the Atkins program which helped me break the plateaus feel much better without the cravings. The packing ...
I am 69 years old now and still fighting the battle of the bulge. The move from Colorado to Oregon has not helped in the battle yet, but living in a new home in a new state is still in the adjustment stages. At least I'm still fighting my health battles and SparkPeople has been helping me for more than two years now. I lost 22-25 pounds and then gained and re-lost a few again. I switched to the Atkins program which helped me break the plateaus feel much better without the cravings. The packing and moving and unpacking and living in chaos for the last 9 months has really thrown a monkey wrench into that program. Now that our temporarily live-in family members have moved out to their own place we can get our schedules and eating patterns back into a healthier routine.

An old song says that only the good die young, and I figure with my youthful history I'm going to be around 200-250 years, so I better take care of this body so I can enjoy those extra years!

Fitness Minutes: 16,905

My Goals:
My goals are simple: get my weight down about 25 more pounds and my clothes down about 2 additional sizes. My original AHA moment came when I realized 1 more pound would put me in the BMI obese category, and my target is to get into the healthy range and stay there.

My Program:
I am determined to get onto SP everyday and to track my calories when I do. Weighing and measuring portions has become a way of life. My biggest challenge has been to get our dietary habits reorganized as my husband has been our family chef for many years and now we will be sharing this task.

Personal Information:
I have transitioned from the paid workforce to retired status and look forward to discovering new places and creating new friendships.

Other Information:
I am deeply immersed in a wide variety of metaphysical activities. I welcome correspondence with those who share this journey.

Thanks so much for those wonderful comments on my today's blog.

I also have an old Richard Simmons tape that I saved.

My Son gave me a new T.V. that has a DVD player built into it. I have not used that part yet.

Blessings and much happiness to you.

Good point I will discuss this with my therapist, I am taking my daughter the next visit so she can meet her and understand a little bit of what Ive been dealing with (my daughter and her issues). Thanks for stopping by the blog. I think I put so much pressure on myself to do EVERYTHING that if I dont do it all I am a failure. I know its something I really need to work on...and I am.

emoticon for stopping by my blog....It was a lovely day indeed. Thank you for the Good Wishes

But a dampener, with the havoc the earthquake has caused in Nepal and the aftershocks continuing till Sunday noon.

Prayers needed for the country and the victims. emoticon

Hugs, Prayers & Blessings

Yes you are right... tmrrw is another day. I know I am on the right track because in the past I would give up because of one day not keeping to my plan, but I am actually EXCITED to get back on track. Thats a big difference for me. Thanks for the encouragement emoticon
