I've been making small lifestyle improvements over a period of more than 10 years. Looking back over my life I realize that I can thank good genes for getting me as far as I am! I don’t think I’ve EVER really lived a healthy lifestyle. Even when I was thinner or in better shape or both I got there by some really sketchy means. No, I was never bulimic, just never ate healthily when I was getting thin or staying thin. I smoked for many years. I still drink more alcohol than I should, though I am MUCH improved over my past.

I am a realist. I’m not interested in temporary “fixes”; however, I will only make permanent changes that are convenient and relatively painless. Great habits and routines have to be doable or they don't get done.

My progress so far:
~ Quit smoking
~ Cut alcohol consumption by 90%
~ Upped my water intake from almost none to just about enough
~ Cut my stress and anxiety levels enormously
~ Found the healthiest food lifestyle and will follow it for life
~ Improved the quality of the food I buy
~ Lost 35 pounds pretty easily
~ Worked many small fitness routines into my lifestyle
~ Improved my thyroid health

What's left?

~ Routinely getting enough sleep
~ Creating a better work/life balance
~ Losing 30 pounds of fat
~ Becoming truly active in the Primal Blueprint spirit!

My Goals:
I've never liked making goals, because once you reach them you just have to make new ones. Therefore I now have Intentions, rather than Goals. I mean, you can have Goals and never, ever work towards them. Intentions, on the other hand, imply a little more action, though not necessarily in any specific timeframe. Suits me to a T! My intention is to Be Happy and Live Long and Well.


My Program:
I'm permanently low carb. I am well nourished without much of the empty calories of grains, starches, or sugars. I feel better in most ways than I ever had in the past!

I am trying to be more active, as opposed to being an "exerciser". Exercise for its own sake bores me, therefore I won't do much of it. A few minutes a week of light weights, a lot of walking and running stairs while at work, and household upkeep will have to do me.



Personal Information:
59, happily married, two terrific sons and two adorable cats. Love me some video games!

    To answer your question about a tortoises growth. They can get to a pretty decent size but it takes them 50 to 100 years to reach it. Not as big as the giant tortoises from the Galápagos Islands, but they can get pretty big. emoticon

    Aww, Woubbie! When I read about "bad fats" and then look at just HOW many things I buy for the family contain those exact bad fats I don't even know how to deal with it. I don't have the time to make my own mayo and ranch and peanut butter. Just those 3 things would be horribly time consuming and we eat copious amounts of all 3. Why can't there be more companies who want to make good food instead of just cheap food?
