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!

Hi, Alley. Just stopping by for a visit. Kudos to you for being able to keep a hula hoop going. I did it all the time as a kid but can't get the hang of it again for the life of me.
Keep on Sparkling you active little pooch, you!!!

I've never had a problem with the AdBlock Plus I got from the Chrome Web store but that is all I can say. I don't know if it is a virus, sure hope not. All I know is that it does a pretty good, not perfect, job of blocking many ads. I am so sorry those ads are driving you crazy. I know the feeling!

Congrats for being second place. So for I'm doing very well in the challenge. Eating well and lightly and getting in my workouts. I came into this one understanding what what I need to do better and with a much more motivated frame of mind. emoticon
