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 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!

Hi, AALLEY2. Thanks for wishing me well (and healthy). My plan for these next several days is: rest, stay hydrated, take the meds the dr prescribed, and to not pass along my germs to anyone else.

I'm also a self-taught knitter and crocheter, and it's with great pleasure that I discovered the Family and Consumer Services (home ec) class at the local high school. I've been helping out in the Textile Arts portions. It's great fun to teach these young kids how to do something I so enjoy, and yes, there are a few boys.
