My Journey to Good Health

Five years ago I reached my goal weight with Weight Watchers. With their help and some loss before joining, I lost 60 pounds. Last year I lost another 10 and was at last back to my high school weight. My husband of almost 40 years has always loved the outdoors, but my weight prevented me from doing most of the activities he enjoyed.

Five years ago I reached my goal weight with Weight Watchers. With their help and some loss before joining, I lost 60 pounds. Last year I lost another 10 and was at last back to my high school weight. My husband of almost 40 years has always loved the outdoors, but my weight prevented me from doing most of the activities he enjoyed. Getting in shape has allowed my husband and our family to discover the fun in hiking. While our life used to revolve around watching other people exercise in the form of sitting in front of the TV during baseball, basketball, and football games, we began to spend nearly every weekend hiking and planned our vacations around hitting the trails. We've introduced our grandchildren to the joys of being a part of nature by showing them the magnificent offerings we can find out of doors.

Since I retired from teaching in June, I have gained 17 pounds. My inactivity has begun to concern me because with the weight gain has come a deterioration of my body. Hiking has become such a vital part of our lives, I have to get myself back in shape to enjoy the trails!

Fitness Minutes: 14,844

My Goals:
I have been gradually regaining a 65-pound weight loss. I need to lose at least 10, preferably 20, pounds to be healthier.

I want to get back to the trails

I need to remember to wear my pedometer

I have to turn off the television

I must drink 8 glasses of water a day

Personal Information:
My name is Judy. My grandson Dusty called me "Bummer" when he was too little to pronounce Grandma. I was very sad when, at 4, he decided he was too mature to call me Bummer anymore.

Other Information:
I'm a retired high school English teacher, grandmother of 10, and I love to travel. Once getting back in shape, I want to begin hiking again. Two years ago we hiked the Sierras and last fall we hiked in Yellowstone. There's nothing quite like it.

What have you been up to? I haven't seen you around for the longest time. So did you reach your goal and you don't need us any longer, or did you just give up?

Hugs, Eve

Comfort from our LORD: Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
