Getting There

Everyday, it seems like I try but not hard enough. I want today to be different. I like stepping on the scale and seeing a weight loss. I like knowing that today I had the self-control to NOT eat mindlessly all evening, or, on a really bad day, all day. I want to be able to do more with my my family. I want to be able to go hiking at the area state parks and be amazed at the beauty all around me not so breathless that I have to sit down and rest. My mother is in her sixties and ...
Everyday, it seems like I try but not hard enough. I want today to be different. I like stepping on the scale and seeing a weight loss. I like knowing that today I had the self-control to NOT eat mindlessly all evening, or, on a really bad day, all day. I want to be able to do more with my my family. I want to be able to go hiking at the area state parks and be amazed at the beauty all around me not so breathless that I have to sit down and rest. My mother is in her sixties and terminally ill. We can't change our DNA but I am trying to to do what I can to be healthier. And I want to succeed this time.

My favorite people are my family. My favorite things are our pets, my books- thousands, my photos, my Nook and my computer. I have been on the internet since 1996 and can't imagine life without access to all the interesting people, places, sites, facts and so much more. I use the internet as a learning tool- for myself, and a teaching tool for homeschooling my son. And so many other things including keeping up with people I love and increasing knowledge of the many things I love. Books, history, food, cooking, travel, music, humor, current affairs, homeschooling, politics, flowers, and a zillion other things.

Member Since: 5/13/2012

SparkPoints: 3,132

Fitness Minutes: 1,552

My Goals:
I have lost forty-five lbs and want to lose forty-five more. However much I lose, I want to be happy in my own skin. No more avoiding mirrors.

My Program:
I am tracking my food and trying to stay within the range of 1200 to 1600 calories per day. Tracking is forcing me to be honest about what I eat. Every bite counts. It has always been so easy to think that a nibble here and a nibble there don't really make a difference. I'm learning that they make a huge difference.

I am also exercising every day for at least 15 mins. On a good day, I do 45 mins but usually 30. I am doing low-impact aerobics at home. I never thought I would be willing to join a gym because being around all those skinny and fit people would have been depressing. Today, I feel strong enough to consider that as a possible option for exercise.

Personal Information:
I have lived in the South most of my life and have returned to my hometown in Alabama. I'm not always comfortable here because my life and political and religious views are not conservative. Being a blue dot in a red state makes life interesting.

I have been in a committed relationship with my college sweetheart for twenty-three years. Looking forward to another forty.

My son is thirteen and several inches taller than both of his parents. He is the light in my life that never stops shining. We homeschool, not for religious reasons but because he is a free spirit (with ADHD) and would have been miserable in public school. I'm not as good a teacher as I would like to be but he seems to be thriving regardless. He is very active in the Civil Air Patrol and has flown a Cessna four times!

Other Information:
The child is in me still... and sometimes not so still.
Mr. (Fred) Rogers
