Hi Everyone! I have been fighting a weight problem for more than 15 years and now it has come down to a health issue for me. I have just been granted disability so I have an entire host of health issues that I am dealing with. I joined a health club to work out at when the weather is bad, but I can only do so much in a day, or even in any given week. I am in pain constantly, I am an emotional eater and I need to find support.

I am in the process of stopping my Diet Coke intake. ...
Hi Everyone! I have been fighting a weight problem for more than 15 years and now it has come down to a health issue for me. I have just been granted disability so I have an entire host of health issues that I am dealing with. I joined a health club to work out at when the weather is bad, but I can only do so much in a day, or even in any given week. I am in pain constantly, I am an emotional eater and I need to find support.

I am in the process of stopping my Diet Coke intake. This is huge for me. I LOVE my D.C.!! I am increasing my water intake and starting to track my food intake with the Spark food tracker.

So, I am on my way to start my next 15 plus years on a healthier track. My husband needs me, my kids need me. I need them to be healthier and I need to lead by example. So I can use any and all support that is offered.
I am off for a walk!

SparkPoints: 16,924

Fitness Minutes: 4,422

My Goals:
1. drink 8 glasses of water daily

2. eat 5 fruits & veggies daily

3. walk and/or train daily & track on tracker

4. track food intake daily

5. Purchase one new fruit or veggie weekly to try when grocery shopping!

My Program:
My overall goal is to get healthy and get off of the 11 prescribed medications that I am on. Even to get off of some of them would be a Win for me! My ideal weight would be 130 pounds, but to make it more idealistic, I hope to lose 50 by the end of the year (2011).

With the multitude of medical conditions that I have, it is difficult to do too much, but on most days, I can walk at a slow to moderate rate. This is what I will continue to do for as long as I can.

I will add in resistance training on the days that I can tolerate it. I know every little bit helps.

I am working on drinking my water, eating my fruit and veggies and tracking everything. I am an emotional eater and a binge eater. As long as I know that I have to track everything, I know that I have to be held accountable. This, along with the great support of the friends and community should help me on my way to my goals!

Personal Information:
Kris
St. Charles, Illinois
khfour2@yahoo.com

Married 1986 to my soulmate Ken

Two children
Kory - dob - 5/90
Kaitlyn - dob - 3/93

I have a Golden Retriever puppy, Nala, that takes me for a walk when the weather is good. And we have two long haired cats that we rescued. Edgar is all black, and his brother Figo, is gun-metal silver.




Other Information:
I no longer work outside of the home due to medical reasons. I keep busy with house stuff and have to take frequent breaks to lie down due to pain.

I like to read, typically horror or medical suspense books.
I used to do alot of handiwork like crochet or needlework, but my hands don't want to work anymore due to arthritis. Now, I don't know what to do to keep my hands busy. Any suggestions?

I love animals and would have an entire farm of them if I thought I could!

I love the outdoors and being able to be with nature.

I cannot wait to get myself in a better place, physically and mentally, so I can enjoy the things that make me happy once again.
