Hi... I've been told by my doctor that it is time for me to be serious and start to lose weight. So, now I'm getting serious! I'm a 50 yr old mother of two beautiful adult girls. I have been married to my husband for over 30 yrs... and want to make it another 30 more!!! I can't wait for grandchildren to someday arrive - and I want to lose the weight to be able to play with them, see them grow.

Fitness Minutes: 6,130

My Goals:
My Goal is to lose 100 lbs. I want to be healthier... I lost both my parents at a young age and I don't want my two girls to live thru the same thing! I want to be a fun grandmother some day - not one who sits from a chair and watches the world go by.

My Program:
I have no real program yet. I'm still getting my eating habits in order. I am breaking the fast-food habit (which is hard).
I exercise but no as much as I should. I need to get serious about exercising!!! Modivation eludes me at times!

Personal Information:
I live in Wisconson, about 30 minutes north of Milwaukee. Love my state! I'm over 50 years old. I've been married to the best hubby in the world for over 30 years. I have two wonderful girls - both out of college now. Love animals - have 4 dogs (chihuahua, lab, bull mastiff and amierican mastiff). I play the French Horn - in 3 groups right now.

The Cardioblast video is six different 10 minute workouts. You can watch one or choose a combination of them. The first three are basic and should be mostly okay for me to do. The last three I may attempt when I have been recovering longer. They may be too hard on my back until my vertebrae has more time to regrow or my muscles strengthen. I have not watched the other one yet. I may watch it tonight just to see it and know what to expect. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the add. This was my first week back to work since January 1. I am beyond exhausted. I had some frustrating times as it seems like each new activity brings new pains. I didn't log on at all this week.

After you get into an exercise routine it actually is uncomfortable to not do it. It feels like your muscles are protesting. Watch a bunch of different exercise videos on this site and see what seems mildly interesting to you. I preordered the new book coming out to be delivered to my Kindle Fire on the day it comes out. The awesome thing about the Kindle is I use it at work as a reference (I'm a RN), then I read my book during lunch. Nothing will keep you from hitting those nasty vending machines faster than a book reminding you why you don't want to do that. Plus you get two exercise dvds and a free coach for a month I think it is. I hope that my coach is a good motivator.

I need to restock my locker, I emptied it before my leave because we honestly didn't know if I would be able to walk again, much less return to work. I used to keep healthy snacks and bottled water in there so if I needed something I could hit that instead. Plus I work on the second floor, east side of a large building and run down two flights of stairs and to the basement west side to get to the locker room so I'm exercising on my way there.

I wish gyms had you make appointments and called you if you didn't show up like the physical therapy department does. That would be a motivator! I do have eight different exercise videos to mix it up a bit. And my 26 year old daughter has others at her house. We're going to swap back and forth to try to keep things interesting.

Do you have a dog? The most success I had was when I had a dog. He was a pug/boxer mix. His stride matched mine so we could walk, fast walk, or run comfortably together. I lost 30 pounds with him. They don't take no for an answer, you must walk them everyday at least once or you will pay (he got naughty if I didn't keep him exercised). Sadly, I had to rehome him because he didn't like my husband. He peed in his shoes, chewed his belongings, and was jealous of him. My husband wouldn't make an attempt to be the pack leader with the dog so I gave up the battle. He's a therapy dog for a stroke victim now. I miss him sooooo much. Maybe I should get a part time job as a dog walker for someone?
Sorry I got so wordy. Just trying to give you some ideas.

HI !!! I am Grandma Franny !!! Thank's for choosing me as a friend. I am 72 1/2 yrs. old and I would be glad to help, motivate & suppport YOU in any way. Last year I weighed ( April 3, 2012) 162 lbs. but the main reason I taalked to my Dr. beacuse of bloating and my trygleceride level was 229. Had 2 heart attacks which I wouldn't wish on any one. First one when I was 48. Dr. put me on probotic diet. NO CAKES, PIES, COOKIES, PIZZA OR POP. I was determined Started exercise & dieting immediately next visit in June lost 19 lbs. but that was not good enough tryglceride level dropped down 29 points. Then a came on to SPAARKPEOPLE and then I went to work. Today, I walked 10,004 steps. WHEW!!! I now weigh 102 and Dr. visit on April 15th. It takes time, so I end my messages. LET'S DO IT !! emoticon
