Hi. my name is Francine and I need to lose some weight and eat healthy foods all the time as I am a diabetic and also a asthmatic. I never had a weight problem growing up( I was very thin then). It was difficult to accept all the weight that has been piling on this frame of mine. So I'm taking this journey to lose weight and get healthy. I'm 64 years young, would like to look better, I know I can do this, if it takes longer than I want---so be it, will hang in there.I like the saying, age is just a number. I will try to remember that its what you do for your body that keeps one younger regardless of your age.
Lose 40 to 50 pounds
Enjoy life, not bemoan the fact I've made life
changes as its the best thing to do for myself
Work out at the gym--2 or 3 times a week doing both cardio and strength exercise
Do exercise at home
Use the nutrition and fitness trackers
My name is Francine, most people call me Fran. I have a twin sister Georgine, we were each named for one or our parents. I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Married 41 years
2 grown children
My hobbies are sewing, knitting, crafting, reading and spending time on spark people( I lose time real quickly while sparking)
Love outdoors during spring, summer and early fall, however, I'm not fond of the winter months

That is one of the perks, the only one, you get to not worry about getting things done with an injury. Good to focus on the healing process. We are going to be taking our time in coming down. Will be leaving here 2 weeks from Sun. with a week at the Spencer Cty. Fair and then the next week the RV group (SP) is meeting in OK for a mini rally. After that we want to do some travel hoping to get in about the end of Oct. or early Nov. By then the heat should be more tolerable. Today here was cool but humid and another storm heading this way from the Fargo area. Just looked at the radar and can't see a thing so might not have to worry about being awakened during the night:-) Have a relaxing Sunday.

Thanks for your comments on my blog, including the encouragement, prayers and good thoughts. Not getting something done is scarier to me than actually having surgery.
Being alone and knowing what can happen if I don't or can't get it corrected is not something I want to think about. I really don't want to have to live with m children. ((HUGS)) Linda Kay

Thank you for your support on my blog about my 20% body weight loss.
I am a little worried about not tracking, so I will continue daily weigh ins to make sure I don't go into a gaining mode. I know a few members that are working on intuitive eating, so I want to look into that as well.

Good Morning Fran and Thank-you for the Smoothie . Yes , this year has been a challenge but you know I love a good intrigue. I am gradually getting better as it takes about six months for the medication to work in the body . I am taking a brake from posting to read other peoples blog while I'm at moms in Florida . For the next two weeks I am getting my garden ready for the fall . When I return from Florida , I will be back at the Botanic Gardens for the Fall Festivities - New Pumpkin Carving Festival - will photo !
Fran you're awesome - Hugs Karen
