Still struggling to Make It Permanent!

OK, so I continue to TRY! It seems I've been TRYING all my life and sometimes my efforts have worked beautifully and sometimes they haven't! I know the program works but I'm not working it the way I should. Since being diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knees, hips and feet, exercising has totally gone out the window and at my age, I NEED THE EXERCISE! I will continue my struggle but I know it's going to be a struggle!

Fitness Minutes: 14,995

My Goals:
My goal is to get my weight down to a point I can maintain without too much effort. When I get the weight off, I don't want to spend the rest of my life worrying about everything I put in my mouth!

My Program:
Since discovering that I have osteoarthritis, it has been difficult finding an exercise program that won't aggravate my joints. I'm working on this but there is no excuse for poor eating habits so getting back to eating in a more healthy way is a must. My main problem is portion control and getting that under control is a must!

Personal Information:
I'm a southern gal originally from North Carolina but have lived in "the big city" since coming out of school. My second husband and I have been married for 16 years and each of us brought a son to the marriage. His son made us grandparents.

Other Information:
I love the movies and the arts. As a matter of fact I once thought I wanted to be an artist but I never studied. A favorite Christmas gift were DVDs of The Help and Tyler Perry's For Colored Girls. My mother was a maid so I understood The Help completely. Years ago I saw For Colored Girls on Broadway and was anxious to see what Tyler Perry would do with it. He did an excellent job! I'm retired but my husband still works. He said he would go crazy doing nothing all day and goes merrily to work each day. To be honest I don't think I could handle him being underfoot all day! Lol!
