Shared Fitness Tracker
UPDATE-Spark 1 year anniversary: I have lost a lot of weight, gained strength, confidence, smaller clothes, and sunnier outlook and am getting my health back. One year ago I was out of breath, in pain all the time, not sleeping well, unhappy, and tired. I have NOT reached goal in the time sparkpeople magically set for me. That bummed me out for a while, but I have since decided that no one else is me. I will do this in however much time it takes ME. I will keep pursuing a lifestyle of better choices, and I WILL get there in my own good time. In the meantime, I aim to enjoy this new body, energy, and health. Join me?
PREVIOUS-Day One: I am finding it more difficult to lose weight as I age, and harder to get around. I have injured myself twice (torn gluteal muscle, and injured shoulder) when regularly exercising, and now have a fear of doing it again.
I'd like to feel healthy and energetic. I also would like to get off the handful of medication I take every day. If I look good as well, that is just a bonus. I am tired of feeling sluggish, used up, and too tired to do anything but sleep.
8/26 UPDATE: I am feeling more energetic. I have lost 35 pounds. I am off some meds. I am beginning to feel like this new life is a true habit. I still like my sweets, so I have to watch that my calories are used well. Still have a way to go, and it is OH SO SLOW, but there isn't a time limit on this. If I die 10 pounds overweight, I WON'T have died 60 pounds overweight, and will have enjoyed a more comfortable life.

I love to read. I have a nook that goes everywhere I go. My reward is often an hour to read with a cup of tea by the fire.
