I had my biometric screening earlier this week. I am not going to lie, I am rather proud of myself and these numbers!
Total Cholesterol : Now 175, 18 months ago 244
LDL (bad cholest): now 109, then 162
HDL: now 39, then 56
Waist circumference: now 33, then 44
BMI: now 28.6, then 37.6
Also, who knew that my shoe size would decrease. I am not so sure that this is a good thing. I put my snow boots on and definitely will need a new pair.
I guess I not only will get to shop for new clothes, but also new shoes. As far as pants go, I have my work pants (scrubs) and a pair of jeans that fit. I have had people give me a lot of sweaters and I have really thinned my closets. I really don't want to go spend money on clothes as I hope to lose 22 more pounds.
I found my before picture today and I never want to be there again. I put it on my page so I can remember how far I have come when I get discouraged.

OK, so to let all know what I have been up to...
My work is really focused on health, after all it is a hospital. Anyway some anonymous donor made it possible for 200 employees to enroll in the HMR Healthy Solutions plan for free! We also got a free membership to the Wellness Center with a twice weekly session with a personal trainer. I started last Tuesday and am down 7.25 lbs!
I was 208.25 now I am 201! (I will change my weight ticker to correspond with the center's scale so that I don't confuse my self) My scale was off by a lot, but then again I am wearing nothing on my scale at home!
I am not abandoning Spark people because I want to keep in touch with everyone and share my successes as well. I will not be doing any challenges, tracking food, or fitness since I am doing it with this other program.
Please keep me in your prayers as I begin this new and exciting journey.

OK, so I never really left Indiana.
I have been on a little break from Sparking and my new lifestyle. I have gained almost 10 lbs in the last 6 weeks. I am hoping most of it is water and will come off quickly, but we all know how that story goes.
I volunteer as the camp nurse for a Cub Scout camp in Charlestown, IN. Besides my grandsons it is my reason for living. I enjoy my time there so much. I take trips there throughout the year, but the 5 weeks that I live there in the summer fulfill me. It is close enough to home that my family comes and visits, and that I can actually return to my real job for 3 days those final two weeks.
The downside is that I eat basically junk the whole time, get virtually no exercise and feel my clothes get tighter. I had to give up wearing my fitbit, because it picked up the movement of the golf cart I drive around and was giving me way too much credit.
I have decided to start all over, with the basics and get back in the swing of things. I feel horrible. I ache all over. My joints feel like the tin man's and really could use some oil. I have missed my friends here and I feel like I will never get caught up with all of you.
Please check out the facebook page TMR WRC where I have posted hundreds of pictures.
Now back to catching up with you
