KTMorrill, So. Maine

Hi, I joined SP on Mon. Feb. 9, 2009. I live in Southern Maine. I turned 58 yrs. young this past April. I am 4' 10 3/4" tall. I WAS at a whopping 182 lbs.

My husband is now giving me total support (after 25 yrs. of failed dieting, and his sabotaging my dieting willpower with his junkfood) He is now keeping "his" junkfood "out of sight", and is even doing all the cooking!! :o) Needless to say he missed his calling. He needs to open a "health" restaurant.

Hi, I joined SP on Mon. Feb. 9, 2009. I live in Southern Maine. I turned 58 yrs. young this past April. I am 4' 10 3/4" tall. I WAS at a whopping 182 lbs.

He needs to open a "health" restaurant.

I set a goal to lose 67 lbs. After my Dr. scolded me, because my BP was sky high 150/90. She warned me of the threat of diabetes with possible amputations down the road, even blindness, heart disease and stroke; if I did not lose the weight. I do not want any of that to happen to me. So, I started the diet 'she' recommended, with great results; "The South Beach Diet".

I need to manage my stress. When I am stressed out, I go for the sweets. I have a slight case of seasonal depression also. I need to be more active during the winter months, and get as much sun as I can. Not feel like I want to hybernate.

I own a nice piece of exercise equipment, the "Total Gym 1700 Club". I need to get back to that, plus walk and do weight training. Get back to drinking the recommended amount of water and getting 8 hrs. of sleep. Leave off the sugar. Consume the 'good' fat and the 'good' carbs.

My friend Cheryl (pronounced Chairul in German) told me about this site. So, here I am. Thankyou Cheryl!! :o)

I will get alot of info. and support here. And, in conjunction with my Dr. recommended diet I feel I will succeed.
