For My Family!

I want to be healthy and have a long energetic life so I can enjoy my daughter growing up. My goal is to get back to a healthy BMI and maintain my weight between 125-135 pounds. I plan to lose weight slowly with a Volumetric, anti-cancer diet focusing on vegetables, fruit, beans, and whole grains, plus drinking plenty of water! I'll avoid sugar, salt, red meat, and fried foods. Another big thing I need to work on is getting exercise. My initial goal is to get outside for 30 minutes most days.

Hi and welcome to the team, we look forward to you becoming an active member, joining in with the chats and challenges. We have the JULY STEPS thread going which you can monitor your daily steps, just copy what the others are doing, very easy and you will get your recognition for your achievements at the end of the month.

Also it can be a bit boring just counting steps, so we are putting them to good use with the VISIT A MEMBER challenge - so enjoy a virtual visit and have fun with your story!

Don't be a stranger!
