'You have such pretty eyes--too bad you are so big'

I don't want to hear that statement again!!! I know that I have used a major illness , arthritis, and ongoing medication as an excuse not to try any harder to lose weight. I am admitting that I need help and am hoping to connect with others in this same situation.

My Goals:
My goal is to lose at least 100 pounds to start so that I can play with my grandchildren without so much effort, to take my boat out on the lake without being embarrassed, and to live a long and healthy life.

My Program:
I am limiting calories, eating less fat and keeping an emphasis on low sodium. I am riding my excercise bike 30 minutes every day and doing excercises with a ball and val-slide 3 days a week.

Personal Information:
I live in Wimberley, TX (40 miles from Austin in the Hill Country) and travel a lot with my job as a marketing rep. My children are grown and married with children. I live with my two buddies, Scout and Shadow (dogs). I love to fish and have a boat to keep me occupied in my 'spare' time!

Other Information:
I am a very determined person and once have set my mind to something, will succeed!!

Deborah,

How is your exercise ball working for you? Just reread your email from when we signed up a couple weeks ago and thought I'd check in with you. Looks like you are having some good progress! Hope all is well!

Hi and welcome to SparkPeople and our Managing Diabetes Group and High Blood Pressure Teams. Here you will find tons of encouragement, support and answers. Everyone is so helpful! If you have a question, comment or suggestion, just post it. Someone will respond quickly.
When I first joined SparkPeople, all I did was read the comments. The encouragement and emotional support I received from that kick-started me into checking SP out in more detail. Now I even join in the posts, put pictures on my SparkPage (something I never thought I would do) and tell the world how much I weigh. (sigh)
My days are brighter and each day brings a new beginning. Just take one small step at a time and enjoy the journey as you go. Remember to just take one day at a time on this journey of a lifetime. This journey consists of many small steps, a few speed bumps and pot holes, and a lot of fun. Start slowly. If you can only do 5 minutes, that's great. Maybe do 5 minutes two or three times a day and add as you can tolerate. Get a good pedometer (about $10) and see how many steps you are taking a day. Soon you will be adding steps to see how many you can do. Before you know it you will be checking to see how many miles you have walked in a day. WHAT A GREAT MOTIVATOR!!! I do walking every day in addition to my bike, etc. sometimes in the 5-10 minute increments depending on what my 4 year old goddaughter and I are up to.
Stay focused and keep a positive attitude as this will be a great help to you in your daily life!!! Smile although sometimes that is the hardest, but it really helps!!! And, if nothing else, it makes people wonder what you're up to.
It's good to meet and have you with us.
God bless you in your new adventures.
Hugs,
Helen

Hey Deborah,
Thanks for adding me as a friend. How are you doing today with your diet? I have done pretty good so far today but missed my water areobic class this morning. I feel bad about that but I wanted to sew something so I stayed home and sewed a pretty draw sting bag for my insulin pens. Have a good day.
