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....

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I keep digging at the past uncovering little rocks and big boulders. My road undersurface is so rocky that the top surface is bumpy. When I hit a bump I swerve in another direction like one of those little cars that hit the wall, back up then go again only to hit another bump or pothole. I am overwhelmed by how many rough spots and potholes there are in my road!

If I can keep the steering wheel from shaking I might make more headway. Maybe the tires need realigned... One of those potholes was deep enough to bend the rim. Gripping the wheel tighter doesn't help, and I'm trying to avoid jackrabbit starts, learning to ease out on the clutch while pushing gently on the gas, and not frantically pumping on the brake when I see another obstacle in the way. Steady pressure is the new way to brake.

I'm headed in another direction now and there is a whole road crew working to help me navigate the potholes, bumps, and boulders. They are wearing safety vests. The silver reflective letters on the vests spell out the words emoticon One of them is holding a red emoticon sign, and one is holding a yellow DETOUR sign or is that a emoticon sign? And there is a another one with a sign that says emoticon . emoticon I think emoticon emoticon

Thank you for you comment on my blog. I do wonder how other find an advocate to help them through the process. If I didn't have as much medical knowledge as I do after retiring from the profession, I don't think we would be where we are today for many reasons. The vunerable adults do have a very difficult time even though the laws are there for them to be cared for. Thank you again for stopping by.

emoticon That was a really good answer you gave to MOONGLOWSNANA about the road undersurface - I'm going to remember that - you should make a blog post out of it (if you haven't already - I didn't check) Your answer helped me too (I tend to be stuck in the past a lot myself) emoticon emoticon

Weight gain doesn't happen overnight, neither does weight loss.

Have a wonderful day emoticon
