Me and my Granddaughter in my old "Fat Pants" May 2007
Christmas 2006, WOW Seeing IS Beleiving, 374 pounds
July 2007 *I AM DOING IT*
Shared Fitness Tracker
In 2007 I joined Sparkpeople, it turned out to be one of the best things I've ever done for myself, I lost 150 pounds, felt like a million bucks, looked like a million bucks too. Finally learned howto live healthy and not feel deprived. My life was wonderful, I was in a real good place in my life.
Then my husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. My whole world fell apart around me and for the next 16 months my world was full of Chemo, Radiation, and heartbreak as I watched the strong vibrant man I had loved for 23 years deteriate a little bit each day. On October 22,2010 my 29 year old son died unexpectedly, 29 days later my husband lost his battle with Cancer, then 4 months later I was diagnosed with Leukemia. Needless to say, I have been a mess, mentally, physically, and financially .I have gained all of my weight back plus 15 extra pounds. I am miserable, I have a lot of health issues but I am ready to do this again. I turned 50 in May and decided that it's now or never I can either sit here and want it or I can get up off my big butt and do it. So... I am DOING it, cause in the end it's all up to ...ME. Here I go.......................( I am keeping my old pictures up as inspiration)
To be able to walk with out being out of breath.
To fit back into my FAVORITE jeans.
Simply to feel as good as I did when I lost 150 pounds.
1. Track.. I know tracking is so important, it's what keeps me grounded
2 Excersize in the pool at least 5 days a week, even if it is just to walk in the water for an hour.
3. No more MINDLESS eating !!!!!
