On my way to a new life

In 2006, when I changed jobs, I decided to change my life as well and lost 60 pounds in a year. Early in 2010, I learned I needed a total hip replacement and that losing more weight would help in my recovery. So I lost 25 pounds more. But I still have a long way to go to reach my goal and be truly healthy.

Fitness Minutes: 373

My Goals:
My primary goal is to be healthy and to live my life to the fullest. Specifically, I want to get down below 200 lbs. and exercise at least 3 times per week. I want to get off high blood pressure medication, if possible.

My Program:
I had a total hip replacement on Jan. 17, 2011. It was impossible to do much exercising before then and I really have only begun in March 2011, but must do so SLOWLY. We bought a treadmill. I am following Spark People's meal plans. I am changing my life to stay away from unhealthy habits.

Personal Information:
I'm a small business owner with a wonderful husband, whom I love more now than I did when I met him 20 years ago, and a smart and kind son, who just got married in September.

Other Information:
I weighed 343 pounds at my heaviest. I lost 60 pounds on NutriSystem four years ago and have lost 25 more this year. I have never let anyone see or know my actual weight. I'm changing that now by allowing my weight tracker on my page. It's a hard thing for someone who has hidden it for so long.
