I Wanna Ride with no Guilt

I really started wanting to learn weight, to ride my horses, but they have moved on to other homes. Because I also have some issues with riding it turns out. But I still want to get to lose enough weight that I can start taking riding lessons. I am not sure I will ever be to the low weight they want for some one my height, because I am not extremely unhealthy, just have a weight issue.

Another reason that I am trying to lose weight is that I do not want to have some of the health problems of another of my family members. They will be having a major surgery to remove a lymphedema within the year and I never want to make it to that point. Although I am unsure if it is completely related to their weight.

emoticon for the comment on my blog...

Once I realized how many calories I was consuming from alcohol alone, it was kind of apparent to me that I needed to make a change there. The potassium -- I dunno -- asked on one of my team forums and someone suggested that all items being tracked may not have values entered for potassium and magnesium. If it was really as low as it appears in my feedback I think I'd probably be dead!

Hope you have a great weekend! (so far I'm spending my Saturday canning tomato juice and freezing roasted tomato sauce, and still have about 30 pounds of tomatoes on the kitchen table!)

Hey, just wanted to share with you that I also went to MSU, and had planned to go to vet school but then got stupid and got married and -- well, it was one of those things where life gets in the way of the best-laid plans! I hope YOUR dream will come true for you -- although, life is what we make it and, as they say, when one door closes, another opens.

You can do it, inch by inch!!

I'm glad you have set a small for yourself to get started. I set 8 pounds as my first goal. I figured I could handle that. Now I'm going for a total of 40, 32 more. SP says that will take me over a year.

I am learning a lot about nutrition on the site, and I already feel so much better.

I figure out a lot of solutions to problems when I walk in the mornings, things like how to get in the needed exercise, or how to increase my fiber intake, or how to get my butt up and moving, or how to plan menus and get the food in so I'm not sitting at the computer during every free minute.
