Life's a Beach

Living in Southern California it's all about the ocean. I love to sail, scuba dive, go to doggie beach and eat sushi. I want to look good in a bathing suit again and enjoy all of the activities I enjoyed when I met my husband 17 years ago!

The last couple of years have been tough. I have gained 30 pounds, much of it while actually trying to diet! My doctor is talking about replacing my knee, even though I am only in my 40's, but it is so bad I am getting steroid shots every few ...
Living in Southern California it's all about the ocean. I love to sail, scuba dive, go to doggie beach and eat sushi. I want to look good in a bathing suit again and enjoy all of the activities I enjoyed when I met my husband 17 years ago!

The last couple of years have been tough. I have gained 30 pounds, much of it while actually trying to diet! My doctor is talking about replacing my knee, even though I am only in my 40's, but it is so bad I am getting steroid shots every few months. To top everything off I am beginning menopause and experiencing all the wonderful side affects from that, along with more weight gain!

So now I am trying something new - Bodylogics. I heard about it on Dr. Phil and Oprah. Suzanne Somers talks about it as well. According to the website "BodyLogicMD highly trained physicians specialize in bioidentical hormone therapy, fitness and nutrition. Helping women and men suffering the symptoms from hormonal imbalance, menopause and andropause."

I began the program this week. After 2 months of blood tests and saliva tests my doctor said my hormones are way off balance- but something had been telling me that for a long time!

I will try to post a weekly blog to let everyone know how it is going...I am keeping my fingers crossed that between SparkPeople motivating my to eat right and exercise, and the proper hormones and supplements from BodyLogicMD, I will finally start to feel good again!

My Goals:
I would like to lose 5 lbs a months for the next 6 months.

Personal Information:
I live in Southern California. I'm 48 years young and love to spend time at Catalina Island.

Other Information:
I travel a lot for my job and this can be both a blessing and a curse. Every hotel I stay in has a workout room with a treadmill so getting in a workout is usually easy, unless I am just too tired. Eating right is more of a challenge since every meal is in a restaurant.

Thanks Tib :) Yes, I think they are helping me feel better both physically and mentally, which is encouraging me to track my food and water intake, and to exercise every day. I'm blogging about it here: http://catalina-mom.blogspot.com/

How are you doing? You seem to be getting motivated again too!

Congrats on your weight ticker going to the right! Do you think these hormones are helping by giving you more energy?

Thanks Catalina, glad to hear the aliens will return her, although at this point they can keep her..just kidding. Road Warrior hell...I am happy anymore if I don't gain while I am on the road. Fell off the horse the last few days but getting back on today.
