Healthier for the Summer heat!

I am soooooo glad to be back. A lot has happened over the past couple of years. I have been pondering what to do to get back on track - I was led back to SparkPeople.

My Goals:
I'm really doing this for my health. I pay attention to numbers and at my last doctor's visit, my numbers were not good. My goal is to get the numbers back to a healthy point: weight, BMI, cholesterol and get out of the pre-diabetic range!

My Program:
If you eat it, you need to count it! Count the calories, count the carbs, count the sugar (in all its forms), count the exercise minutes and count the calories burned!

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. The weather in the Bay Area is NOT to my liking at all. I am happy to be in sunshine and look forward to the summer! I've carried extra pounds most of my adult life. I've tried just about every weight loss program short of having surgery. Now I'm doing it on my own with the help of SparkPeople and the support of a million plus Sparkers!

Other Information:
It IS possible to make positive lifestyle changes that become second nature. I am still a work in progress working toward my own perfection.

With summer fast approaching I hope that you have been doing well.
Now that the weather is getting better there are so many different activities we can get involved with. I love swimming so I can't wait to swim in our lake. I also enjoy a good walk in a park listening to the birds sing and watching my dog try to chase a rabbit or squirrel. She had very poor eye site so she never see the squirrel go up a tree and rabbits just disappear on her. Have fun and remember the sunscreen. emoticon

Back from Holidays and ready to get back on track. Something in the healthy eating and exercise routine I established must of stuck as I continued it even on vacation. I did allow myself to indulge as well. Would you believe I lost a pound. Must of been the walking, swimming and hiking that I did. I was expecting to gain as I have always gained while on holidays. Now that I know it is possible to loose even if you are away from home once you figure out what works for you. I met my goals that I set when I first started with Spark People now I have set new goals. I want to see the 150's by June. I haven't been there since my kids where in grade school and their adults now.

Well I hope all is going well. Getting healthy isn't easy it means we have to make time for ourselves but we are worth it. So here is to us. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
