Up until about age 43, I had no weight problems that were not self correcting.

03/10/15 - I weighed 168 pounds today. I have set an interim weight goal of 10 percent or 151 pounds. I WILL do some exercise every day and log it; I will log my food.

I am dysthemic; I have SAD, aka Seasonal Affective Disorder and PTSD! I take daily medication.

My Status,1/7/2012
"SUNNYWBL is working hard to push herself out of the dumps and back on track."

I am slowly building up my activity level into weight loss mode again. I want to start working on weight loss again through Spring, Summer and EARLY Fall. The majority of calories burned in spring and summer in 2012 have come from renovating the back yard gardens.

From a low of 145 pounds in 12/2010 I am back to around 170 pounds and need to RE-LOSE the weight. Aauuggh!Breaking my wrist last fall

2/15/16 I started Nutrisystem several weeks ago, and am slowly loosing a few pounds.

My Goals:
I am shedding the pounds that added up slowly and then a little faster when I drove a school bus for more than six years before I retired.
I am still shedding some of my house's accumulation of 'stuff'.
I never want to need BP or cholesterol meds nor to develop Type II diabetes.

My Program:
I got a GoFitWear armband and started tracking my activity and eating on July 1, 2009. Boy! no place to hide there, it tracks your activity 24/7!
8/20/09 down to 169!! (down 13 lb!)
8/30/09 down to 167 (down 15 lb)
12/17/09 down to 155 (32 Lb)
7/4/10 down below 151. (36 lbs) My low was 146.
I had to give up Curves on 12/31/2010 due to budget problems.
I mostly power walk/wog for my cardio. I DO enjoy Strength Training.
I keep my sodium at or below 1600mg.
I'm sorry to say I have regained some of the weight I'd lost. 1/6/13

    Hola, I sent you a friend request. My sparks buddy, Linda, referred you to me as I just blogged about some tests that I am getting for my GERD/esophagitis on Tuesday. I have had several endoscopies as I have Sjogrens Syndrome and it is presenting itself in my GI track the most.
    they found a hiatal hernia and severe esophagitis which has been treated with drugs which knock it down for about 3 months but then I get another episode. so on Tuesday I get both the esophageal monometry and the esophageal PH tests to determine if surgery will help.
    I had to go off meds for a week accept pepto so am suffering right now. I will read your blogs and see what you have gone through.
    hope you are having a good day.

    Thank you for the tip! I remember having to clean the fur out of the old trackball mice, but didn't think that was an issue with the optical.

    My living in Maryland does seem like a stretch if all you knew of me is Hawaii & California! I've been all around the world - family heritage from the deep South, born in Alaska, childhood in the mountains of California - naturalists & hippies, adulthood in Germany (end of the cold war time) & Maryland, then middle age in Hawaii and southern California :O) I get around... it seems :O)

    Good to chat with you!! Audrey
