It's Time to Take Care of Me

A journey begins with one small step and this is it.

I've been over weight, over tired, and over stressed for far too long. My doctor just told me I needed to learn to take care of me before I have a stroke or heart attack.

Read the Bible through this year.
Let God's love be seen in my life.

My Program:
Drinking 8 glasses of water daily and limiting the amount of diet Dr. Pepper (which for years has been my only beverage) Tracking my food intake and exercising.

Personal Information:
I'm 60 and need to lose 50 pounds but I'd be happy with 30. I've always put the needs of my family first. I can take good care of others but I don't know the first thing about taking care of myself. My doctor suggested Spark People. I clicked on the web site and thought "at last some help"!

Other Information:
I love to read light mysteries, (Agatha Raisen, Betsy Davenshear series, etc.) I crochet, knit, sew, bead, crafts in general. All are interesting and relaxing. But alas burn very few calories. I need serious motivation to get up and exercise. Each morning I wake up thinking ok I'm going to do it ----well maybe tomorrow.

Hi Gayle... I just read your comments about caring for your beloved mother, and how much you miss her. Two years ago my angel mom passed away. She taught me so much, and I miss her terribly. I could go to her about everything. We had a perfect friendship. It was my honor to care for her in her last years. She lived to be 97. My two sisters and I shared her care. One time as I helped her in the bathroom, she touched my arm and asked me, "Who will take care of you when you get old?"..... I have three grown, married sons---and I cannot expect daughters-in-law to sacrifice their freedom for me and my dear husband. So I answered my mom with a "laugh"... saying "I don't know!" haha....
My sympathy to you, Gayle, but feel blessed that we had marvelous moms who loved us unconditionally.

Gayle, your doing great with exercising. Loved that you posted that you are doing laps around your house. You may be doing a lot more house laps beginning Sunday. Rain is in the forecast for most of next week. Hope you can make it to the get together at Sarah's home on 2/1.
