Starting Over

My name is Bill. I gained a lot of weight over the past several years taking care of my beautiful wife. Now that she has passed away after a 4-year battle with Amyloidosis, it is time to start taking care of myself. The first year had mixed results, but I'm determined to turn this around. The activity isn't the problem - it's the healthy eating. I will do this, though!

I'm taking part in the Spring 5% Challenge. My goal is to lose 11 pounds during the challenge.

Fitness Minutes: 100,335

My Goals:
I want to get to 180 lbs by August 2105. While I can't run very much due to tendon damage after a broken leg, I want to continue the habit of exercising daily while eating healthier.

My Program:
Eat healthy, watch the portion sizes, and exercise frequently. This formula always works, but it's easier said than done! I've got to find a way to make them habits instead of things that I HAVE to do.

Personal Information:
I live in San Antonio, Texas - an absolutely great place! (except perhaps in July and August...)

Other Information:
I grew up in Texas, but spent 26 years in the Air Force. After retiring from the Air Force, I worked another 15 years at Brooks AFB, TX as a contractor. I love outdoor activities of all types. I especially like hiking vacations. My son and my 7-year old grandson went with me on a 20-mile hike in the mountains of Wyoming last year.

emoticon emoticon Just driving by to share with you a quote by Wilhelm von Humboldt:

"True enjoyment comes from activity of the mind and exercise of the body; the two are ever united."


I hope you are finding September to be an emoticon month! Keep up all of your hard work and you will find emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm following your lead onabeling my activity as "moving boxes". I was actually moving wood...to split it, pack in pallets, then from pallet to wood shed. That'll be our "moving boxes" activity for the next few days. Trying to avoid injuries so we're not doing it all at once like previous years. Our hearts are willing to work all day, but our backs aren't! lol

Thanks for the support Bill! Another Spark Friend made the comment that if people treated each other as human beings, there'd be no need for unions. It's situations like this that really leave a bad taste in my mouth. Oh yes, definitely going to take advantage of the time!
