Ruu's Health Quest

It has taken me over half a century to get a handle on managing my weight. The day after Christmas 2008 I got on the scale to find that I weighed 200 pounds. I made a resolution just for the month of January 2009 to exercise at least 30 minutes a day. I also joined my local TOPS club for support.

It has taken me over half a century to get a handle on managing my weight. The day after Christmas 2008 I got on the scale to find that I weighed 200 pounds. I made a resolution just for the month of January 2009 to exercise at least 30 minutes a day. I also joined my local TOPS club for support. It took almost exactly 2 years, but I finally reached my goal weight. For the last two years I have written down everything that passed my lips and totalled up the calories. I tried to keep my calories under 1400 each day although to lose the last few pounds I did have to drop it to closer to 1200 to make any progress. I am trying to learn how to maintain it now and I hope the slower loss gave me time to learn new habits.
I also exercise at least 60 minutes each day using my treadmill, walking outdoors, Curves and Wii.
I would like to lose another 5 pounds to be in a good position to stay under my goal, but I look good and feel good and plan on keeping up what I am doing. Spark People is another tool in my journey.

"Though no one else can guarantee your success, you can guarantee it by making the commitment to do whatever you must do.
You can guarantee it with your intention, your focus, your action and your persistence.
Today, tomorrow, in any place, whatever the situation, you can make a difference, for your own life, and for your world.
Grab that opportunity, make the most of it every chance you get, and you'll guarantee your own success."
-- Ralph Marston
