Update: Oct 21, 2012: 20 pounds are now gone - so slowly! About 20 to go! I am halfway there, or more, depending on the results. I am shooting for 125 to 130. The thyroid, perimenopause and my age make this so difficult. Low carb seems to work better for me (and I love my carbs!), so I have been lowering those and adding more strength training. I need to be more consistent with both food and exercise if I want to get there!

Prior:
The last 3 years have been difficult weight-wise. I quit smoking and then my thyroid died. I need to turn this around. I try to stay hopeful, but fighting my age, menopause, my thyroid and my slow metabolism makes this a hard mountain to climb! So far, I have lost 10 pounds, not even an average of half pound a month. Very discouraging! I need to work twice as hard to get anywhere, but my body just does not want to do it!

Fitness Minutes: 28,848

My Goals:
Lose weight, shape up, and get healthy. And survive the experience. I would really like to be below 130 again, though 120 is probably the correct weight for my challenged height. But I will be happy with 130!

My Program:
I am working with DVDs, a recumbent bike, a rowing machine and the Wii to get myself back in shape. I need to be more consistent! The Sunny Gal team helps to keep me focused.

Personal Information:
I am married, with one daughter, and two grandkids - a girl and a boy. Unfortunately, they live across the country and we do not see them often enough.

Other Information:
I love to read, garden, surf the internet (especially SP) and play with my puppies.

Thanks for showing so much concern for my husband and our family. It feels like I really do have a friend who understands and is there for us :/. so the cancer is spreading to his lymph nodes but isn't showing any cancer markers in his blood. so he is considered a stage 2a. He starts Chemo this Monday and will be doing chemo for the next 9 weeks. Thankfully he already has a port so hopefully that will ease some pain. I'll keep you and everyone else updated on his health

Hey...Sorry I'm SO late getting back to your post on my page, and thanks for the welcome!

Thanks I really like my current page too! It is actually a bunch of different inspirational images from pinterest. I found about 10 or so that I liked, pasted them all into a word document, and then uploaded that image to my sparkpage, and it just repeats throught the sparkpage. I haven't been on spark for a second because of some family things, but I looked at it today and remembered how calming and uplifting it is - I need to put it on my phone or something so I always head back here! How are you doing?

You are right! I spend, or waste, a lot of time trying to figure out what I can and can't eat. The list seems to grow smaller all the time and I don't like it. I at least want to be able to eat healthy foods I like!!
