A new year and a new me

I have decided that this is the year I become the new me. I am dedicated to making the changes that are necessary in my life to have a healthier and more pain free life. I am coming up on my 1 year spark-versary. I am ready to learn how to prepare and eat more nutritious meals and to explore exercise options that can help me strengthen my core muscles allowing me to expand my exercise repitoire.

I have decided that this is the year I become the new me. I am dedicated to making the changes that are necessary in my life to have a healthier and more pain free life. I am coming up on my 1 year spark-versary. I am ready to learn how to prepare and eat more nutritious meals and to explore exercise options that can help me strengthen my core muscles allowing me to expand my exercise repitoire.

I am 43 and 84 lbs overweight with severe health issues. I am scared that if I don't do something soon I won't be here for my son and my partner. My health issues are made worse by my weight gain. I lost 20 lbs last year, and that is a good start, but I need to go a lot further. I can't seem to do it on my own so here I am. I struggle with exercise because of pain but my Dr.'s tell me if I can get more exercise in that my pain will decrease. I am motivated to make a change, just having a hard time putting it into action. How do you get up and move when it hurts just to breath?! I will find a way. I MUST find a way. I can't stand living like this. I know when I weighed less my pain was less so I know it is worth it. The day just gets away from me when I wait for my pain level to go down before I exercise. So I am here for motivation. I would love to find someone who lives nearby to walk and exercise with.

My Goals:
My goals are to learn more healthy eating patterns and to find exercises that I can do that don't cause more pain than they are worth. In doing these two things I hope to begin losing at least 1 lb. a week until I am down to about 150 lbs. and keep it off.

My Program:
I have joined the BLC21 to have more motivation in making a program and keeping up with it. I am trying out some new exercise videos to try to find the right fit and reading a lot of articles on healthy food and eating right to improve my eating habits.

Personal Information:
I have lived most of my adult life in Chico, CA. I moved to Everett, WA in 2011 which is where I still reside.

An Irish Blessing for You:

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!
