Aiming for less of me!

Though in the process of shrinking, it is just as important to me to gain strength and stamina. After having total knee replacement surgery a couple years ago, I'm discovering that I can do more than I've been able to do since I was 16 years old. And it doesn't hurt!

In June 2011, our family spent some time in Italy and we walked miles. And miles. And climbed stairs...billions of stairs. And I kept up (mostly). I found when we got back home that I'd lost several pounds in the ...

In June 2011, our family spent some time in Italy and we walked miles. And miles. And climbed stairs...billions of stairs. And I kept up (mostly). I found when we got back home that I'd lost several pounds in the process. So that was my running start for Sparks.

Twenty-two years ago I lost 80 pounds with Weight Watchers. Little-by-little, I've gained back about 50 of those pounds. I DON'T want to see that last 30 come back--they are NOT invited! And those newbie 50 pounds are on their way to being evicted.

Update, March 2013: It's been long and gradual, but I see my weight goal in sight. I'll soon need to change my goals to maintenance-type goals. This will be the first time since I was a freshman in high school that I've been anywhere near an ideal weight. New territory to explore!

LONGER TERM GOALS

Fit back into those itty-bitty clothes in the back of the closet.

GOALS MET

Consistently get up from sitting in a chair without having to push off. (Update--I've been doing this consistently enough to move this to Goals Met.)

Wear the Hilo Hattie muu-muu that I bought in Hawaii and never could fit into comfortably. (Update--it fits! Now it has to get warm enough to wear it.) (Another update--I fit into Mom's muu-muu!)

Fit into an airplane seat without being cheek-to-cheek with a stranger.

Walked a 5K--Nov. 28, 2013, 57 minutes!

My Program:
Track nutrition and fitness (keeps me honest).

Eat within my limits.

Walk! And if I can't get out to walk, do at least 30 minutes on Wii Walk it Out or Leslie Sansone Walk at Home.
