My Goals:
The extra weight I'm carrying makes the hard physical work on the farm a lot harder. My knees are worn out and my energy level is low. I want to lose enough weight to feel tired at the end of the day, not totally exausted.

My Program:
I am choosing more vegetables and whole grains to increase the fibre and fill up with healthier calories.
Now that I can walk again after a knee replacement I will be using the maps feature to track my mileage. Farming gives me strong muscles so I will concentrate on calories and walking.

Personal Information:
I'm a dairy farmer in Westport, Ontario, Canada.
My hobbies are gardening outdoors, growing Orchids indoors, geneology, photography, reading and traveling.

Hi there,
Hope you are still sticking with your goals! Dairy farming is a tough job and I really admire all the hard work you people do. I grew up in rural southern Ontario (not on a farm). I saw what dairy farming was like. Stick with your getting healthy goals so it will make your life a bit easier. I am married with two grown sons and a grandson expected to arrive early April. Living presently in eastern Ontario. All the best to you !! You keep the rest of us healthy !! Farmers feed cities !!! :)

Welcome to Candian Gardeners, KJ. Gorgeous pictures- I lived for many years near Belleville and remember those sunsets well. Looks like your garden is growing very well, you must have had some good rains. Look forward to sharing gardening, food and exercise tips with you...MJ in NS
