My Goals:
Would love to lose at least twenty pounds. 30 would be better! I'll take even a couple at this point. But that's the goal! Would like to feel good in a swim suit again . When I look at recent photos find myself asking who the chunky girl is? .....and then say eeeew! its me. This is the biggest I've been since post babies! Just want to be able to feel better in my own skin, stay active and be healthy. Though there's been no sign of it yet diabetes and heart problems run in the family.


My Program:
track my food...add some exercise back into the plan. I'm active but NOT active enough. Step on the scale again when I'm not so afraid of the BIG numbers! until then just eat better. It's a start........

I totally understand. I hate to be hungry and it can be dangerous for me. I'm not fond of sparkpeople's tracker either. There are a lot better ones. I cook from scratch too and it is a lot of work on sparkpeople.

Thanks for the comment on my status. I couldn't have said it better myself. I know if I am trying but the scale doesn't reflect that I totally lose my MOJO!! Glad you understand. Hope things are going well for you.

Hi Carol, and thanks so much for commenting on my last blog. Since them I've taken up swimming down at our local univ. pool indoors of 87 degrees and does that ever feel heavenly on these joints!! I bought a 3-month membership that will put me in November and then I'll see if I still like it in winter. I try to go 2-3X/week and it's making me feel some better. Thanks for your encouragement and we can do it, because we've done it before. You are so right and I'm wishing you the best too, Girlfriend!!

PS.....I just re-read my blog and since then, my Rheumy has advised to not walk on my arthritic feet for exercise, because of hurting them more, so that's the main reason why I've taken up swimming and I love it. I try to swim for an hour, I go back and forth with swimming or water walking/jogging. I must've swam too much yesterday with the breast stroke because my right, damaged, eroded wrist is throbbing today. I may not go tomorrow as I am planning on driving on Friday, to our daughter's for the weekend, 3 hrs. away. My hands have to be good enough for the steering wheel!

Hugs, Karen

Good Thursday morning to you, Carol! And yes, it feels like starting over to me too. In fact, every day's a new day and we can start afresh. We will keep plugging along! See ya! emoticon

Hi Carol
So nice to see you back here on SP! I plan on being here for the rest of my life because the support is out of this world and it keeps me on track. I have made such awesome friends here and know that people will always be there to help when I need it!
All the best to you, you can do this! Let's get out there and kick some butt! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
