My name is Sheila and I just moved to Texas with my husband, Fred, my son Jeff and our dog, Max. I am a 70 something who has had major surgery earlier this year. I recovered from that and a badly sprained ankle so I had a lot of sedentary time followed by a major move to the DFW Metroplex area. We moved here to take care of my 97 yr. old Dad. I need to lose 16 lbs. and have healthier cardiovascular stamina. I'm learning to back up my priorities with daily exercise. I am exercising again and eating fruit daily. I look forward to hearing from you about what is working for you as well as your successes and challenges..

    I'm sorry about your brother. I know you are going to Texas to take care of your father and I think that is wonderful. I hope that you will find a wonderful home there and make some great memories with your father in the time he has left. Thanks for the support.

    I'm not feeling well today so walking will be minimal. I think furniture refinishing is fun too. Have a great day!

    Hi Just checking in to see how you are and how the weight loss is coming. Wondering if you will make your Sep 30 goal. I am 3.4 lbs from MY goal which I set for myself and not what someone or something thinks I should weigh. I am feeling lighter and healthier but am a little apprehensive about the maintaining because I haven't been successful before. This time I have changed my attitude and have not looked at loosing the weight as being on a diet but rather thinking of it as a lifestyle change. I've joined a Maintenance Team and have been reading many many blogs!

    Hope all is well at your end.
