TIME TO UPDATE

Yes, it has been a while since I updated this page! And I really want to change photos as I have many in my computer but always depend on daughter or daughter-in-law to help me with that. Maybe I will try it on my own.
Right now I am at weight that one weight loss company told me should be goal. But that is still overweight and I really want to lose 10 more lbs. to be where SP recommends.

I am very proud of the exercise I now get when in the beginning I could not walk for 5 minutes due to a bad knee and hip. Today I get as many as 130 minutes of exercise. Especially love the water aerobics, but also enjoy walking and the recumbent bike.
My husband of 56 years supports and encourages me all the time. And I have just started challenges which I enjoy even though I am not a competitive person. But they do keep me on my toes. During the 56 days of the 2010 Winter 5 % Challenge I hope to lose 10 lbs., a real challenge for me!

To Be Healthy and now to maintain my weight loss.
FAVORITE SAYINGS:
Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.
Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to

My Program:
The Nutrition Tracker is my constant buddy as I use it faithfully every day. With my bad knee I didn't think I could exercise much, but now am up to a 40-45 minute walk and 30 minutes of riding the recumbent bike. Losing weight has certainly helped!

Thanks for the comments on my blog. I did build a new gate, and I also fabricated a metal mesh covering over the Mule's air intake system so the mice can't get in there any more. I also feel much better today after resting yesterday afternoon. The Anthrax outbreak is soil-borne and typically occurs every 20 years of so in that area. It mainly affects cattle and deer, but can spread to other animals in they mess with an infected carcass. Take care!

Well, I've tried to send you a goodie twice, but neither is showing on your page, so I'm not quite sure what is going on, but I wanted to take a minute and thank you for checking in on me. Just a lot of stuff going on, but it makes me feel really good to be missed! Thank you.

Dear Carol, what you share about your Lake House is so lovely! And I don't blame you for not going on hikes with wild snakes in the area. I wouldn't either, I am terrified of snakes. There are a few snakes in the countryside around Paris, but they are afraid of humans, so if I wear hiking boots and long trousers, and if I am careful where I walk, I am fine.
