Getting and Staying Healthy For Life

It has taken me a lifetime to get where I am today, it wasn't so fast!
I have been up & down on the scale so many times I just want it to end!
In 2009 my doctor told me I would have to take cholesterol meds to lower my cholesterol and then when the Long Term Health Care application was rejected because I was 20 lbs over their limit, I knew it was time again to try to get to a healthier weight. Besides, I hated how I looked in a pic!
Really to stay motivated isn't very easy ...

Really to stay motivated isn't very easy for me, I need a support system, and constant reminders. The weight creeps back in to my life when I don't keep my goals in check.
The SP Fitness Tracker is awesome, I love mapping the different routs we take. After logging my food I use the daily analysis, it is great to see that my eating and exercise was in sync or not!

Personal Information:
Walking, biking, aerobics, and strength training, are my favorite way to be active. Using the hula hoop is fun too, but I don't burn off many calories doing it. If you want to hula hoop, make sure it is as round as you are tall. A weighted one will help you keep going.
I am determined to stay motivated!
Everyone at SP is a great network for support and strength!
Since before we retired, my dear hubby and I have been walking for over 10 yrs and he is one of my best hiking & biking partners!

Other Information:
I am more determined than ever to drop 8 lbs in the next 8 weeks. My DH & I have just celebrated 29 yrs of marriage and have been snowbirds for 4 yrs now. We are expecting our 5th grand baby this November. I am a self-taught knitter and crocheter. Just learning how to knit.

Love turmeric

Eat for the body you want, not for the body you have. Be fit, be healthy!

Challenges keep me healthy!

Thank you so much for those plump, perfect blueberries. Got them just in time to throw into my yogurt for lunch - yummm!
Have a spectacular afternoon!

The soup hit the spot! Thank you!! My cold is better, just a lingering headache.
How is your leg? It is weird how things pop up on our bodies. Hope the massage therapist can work on it.

Oh, I am so sorry about your calf, sure hope it feels better soon. Could it be from a bug bite or a bruise under the skin?

Are those ads still bothering you?
