FINALLY... I've Found a LifeStyle!!

Most important...I'm healthier than I was Dec 2012 at 151lbs; and 140lbs is in sight! And I'm NOT stopping until I see it between my toes on that scale. It felt really good to be there before. I know I'm able to do many things which health issues prevent others from doing. So I am grateful and looking forward to maintaining my health as much as I can as I get older. (Medicare is in sight...shheesh!)

Like almost everyone, I have some health issues lurking in my Life. I picture ...

(Medicare is in sight...shheesh!)

Like almost everyone, I have some health issues lurking in my Life. I picture it as sitting at a campfire with the wolves circling: there's one named Pre-Diabetes, one names Gout; one is Metabolic Syndrome...with its offspring: High Cholesterol and High Blood pressure. As long as I keep throwing "good nutrition" and 'exercise" on my fire, I will keep them at bay!

Mar 2015 Update: First day of spring finds me at 147.4, so it is time to get my act together!! I can start exercising more after Mar 30th when I see my foot surgeon to get the pin out-- WooHoo!
"Notice to Scale: its all gonna be downhill from there!"
My long term goal is under 140, hopefully by July summer trip to Yellowstone. I'm planning on standing on top of Mt Washburn at 10343 feet...and I *Don't* want to carry any extra weight up there! LOL

Remember this is a continuing Journey, not a destination!
All the Best on your own Journey....

The lab technologist told me today that I could have water on a fasting lab work. They always ask and say, "Have you had any food or water in the last 12 hours, so I never thought I was allowed to have water. She also showed me on the lab sheet where it is circled Fasting: Y or N.

I am praying there is nothing wrong with my kidneys, but I have been having flank pain on the left side. I saw in a movie that a man had cancer and flank pain was the only symptom he had. We have a mattress that could be causing the trouble too, so I will find out. With Jesus, I am a winner whether I am healed or go to be with Him (die).

I will pray about your gout and for your foot. My husband had foot surgery in December. He had his other foot operated on for the same thing. His tendons to his ankles were encased in calcium and were messed up. He also had extra bones in both feet which were removed.

This getting old business is not for wimps. Thanks for commenting on my blogs, "I might need to study for my lab tests" and " The visit with my podiatrist.
