I was at the doctor for my annual physical this past week. I am 53, soon to be 54 years old. I am fortunate in that I do not have high blood pressure, do not have high cholesterol. I do have histoplasmosis, asthma and some mobility issues. I am looking forward to getting stronger and more mobile. (This was my first entry from July, 2008 - I weighed 343 pounds)

I am adding to this in January, 2010. Since the time that I made that first entry, I have lost down to 280 ppounds, but I have plateaued and started creeping back up. I am now recomitted to losing weight and I am posting daily using the "my nutrition" tool which is really helping to get back on track.

    How are you today? I too have Hysto, but in my eyes. I love the challenge of living the same life as others, doing the same things, with a disability. I think it gives me strength. Let's go!

    Found your crunchy mama post for the hot cereal. I know it was last February, but it is that time again for warm, comforting b-fasts. Delicious! Thanks for the post!

    I see from your blog that you are walking daily. Thought you might be interested in walking events. Go here to find a listing of upcoming events.

    emoticon Checking on you and love to see how great you are doing.

    I'm reading the BECK DIET SOLUTION, which isn't a "diet" but she teaches how to THINK like a THIN person. (Got a copy from the library.) I recommend it to everyone. (We have a support team here at Sparks.)
    -------------------
    Walking for five minutes is better than walking for zero minutes. Exercise is essential even if I don't do very much at first. I can build up the amount that I do over time, but I have to start somewhere.
    -------------------
    Hunger is never an emergency. It is only mildly uncomfortable. I can tolerate it. It will come and go.
    ---------------------
    I really do deserve credit for breaking old habits and it is essential for building my confidence. Once my confidence grows everything will become so much easier.
    -------------------------
    If I want to lose weight permanently, I can't make exceptions. I'd rather be thinner. I can't overeat on week-ends or any other time.
    -----------------------
    I have to develop the habit of eating every bite slowly, while sitting down, so I can fully enjoy it. It is worth developing this habit, so that I can have a lifetime of being thinner.
    ---------------------------------
    I'm not going to let any minor setback ruin everything I've accomplished. One mistake dosn't ruin my diet, but falling back into old habits will.
    I will recommit to my diet right here, right now!
    ----------------------------
    Exercise is not negotiable for good health. It needs to be a daily lifetime habit and I need to make it so. The hardest part is getting started. I'll feel so much better when I'm done. So get started!
    ------------------------
    OH WELL! I'm going to ignore this craving. I'm going to do something and let it subside. I'm turning my attention to something else, like exercise.
