I am a work in progress

I'm a midlife wife, mother, RN, who likes to stay active and wants to keep it that way for the rest of my life. Have been overweight for 25+ years. I love dogs, I have a four year old Bichon Frise named Linus who likes to walk/run then plop down until I carry him.

I'm a midlife wife, mother, RN, who likes to stay active and wants to keep it that way for the rest of my life. Have been overweight for 25+ years. I love dogs, I have a four year old Bichon Frise named Linus who likes to walk/run then plop down until I carry him.

9/8/15- Recently had surgery removing my thyroid and 2 parathyroids due to autoimmune disease making them overactive. Now trying to adjust to thyroid replacement medication. Looking for "just the right dose".

My husband is supportive and joins me in diet/exercising.
My 26 yr old daughter moved home with us in 2012 due to career opportunities in this area. Happy to have her home and joining us in creating a healthy life style.

My 21 year old daughter is living an hour away at college. She broke her foot 5 months ago and gained a bit but has lost it now that she is active again. She is a big inspiration!

My Goals:
1) To lose at least 1/2 pound each week

2) To stay active and live a healthy lifestyle.

3) To set a good example for my family and loved ones.

4) To encourage my family and loved ones in their own goals and to help them along the way.

5) To lose weight while maintaining lean body mass (i.e. muscle and bone density)

6) This is the most important Goal for me right now: To monitor my TSH, T4, Calcium and parathyroid hormone levels. Maintain the proper dose of medication so that I have energy and a clear head.













My Program:
I have to make it simple. My life is too complex already.

1)Stay within calorie range.

2)Walk with my dog two to three miles a day when weather permits.

3)Exercise on elliptical or bike 3-4 times per week.

4) try to strength train with light weights.

Positive thoughts each day to reinforce healthy habits.



Personal Information:
Nature inspires me.
