FINALLY... I've Found a LifeStyle!!

Most important...I'm healthier than I was Dec 2012 at 151lbs; and 140lbs is in sight! And I'm NOT stopping until I see it between my toes on that scale. It felt really good to be there before. I know I'm able to do many things which health issues prevent others from doing. So I am grateful and looking forward to maintaining my health as much as I can as I get older. (Medicare is in sight...shheesh!)

Like almost everyone, I have some health issues lurking in my Life. I picture ...

(Medicare is in sight...shheesh!)

Like almost everyone, I have some health issues lurking in my Life. I picture it as sitting at a campfire with the wolves circling: there's one named Pre-Diabetes, one names Gout; one is Metabolic Syndrome...with its offspring: High Cholesterol and High Blood pressure. As long as I keep throwing "good nutrition" and 'exercise" on my fire, I will keep them at bay!

Nov 2014 Update: Still having some foot issues (neuroma is the latest.. sigh) that are preventing me from doing everything I'd love to. But I'm way better than I used to be prior to Bunion surgery and Gout Dx. I've started regular Strength Training at YMCA ...its going to help me become more fit. And, contribute to taking off those last 5 lbs down to 138!

Remember this is a continuing Journey, not a destination!
All the Best on your own Journey....

Thanks for your encouragement on my blog on gaining and losing ratios. I still have 10 pounds to lose from the holidays alone - then another 20+ to goal weight. Also will need to check on A1C. Hope my results are as good as your were!

So well said. I do have to remember how far I have come this last year, just in the last few months I have pushed my body further to do more than I thought imaginable.

No matter what the weigh in, I will remember to stop and appreciate how far I have come.

:) Thanks for the reminder!

Patti, really appreciate your comments on my blog. I am not a psychologist (except for myself) and the only things I have ever written are economic research papers that most people weren't exactly standing in line to read! I am glad you enjoyed my thoughts.

Patti, Glad to hear about your success with weight loss and blood glucose. It is role models like you that motivate me every day on SP!
