inspired, feeling good now

Hi, a few years ago I posted the following.."Soon to be 60 and after all these years I finally feel that I am in control of my eating and exercise program..." Well lost the controlled feeling and up and trying to lose the 30 lbs again, this time, trying the Atkins low carb diet. I never would have tried it but after listening to others and reading the new book I have decided to give it a try.

Favorite exercises: hiking/walking trails, swimming and active gardening and racquetball. Inside, I use my treadmill, Air Dyne bike, old Nordic Tract ski machine and core exercises with DVD's, floor and weight exercises.
I love to garden and spend a lot of time in it. It's fun in the springand fall but also keeps me from staying inside too much in the winter and summer hot days

My Program:

Personal Information:
WrittI am now down to the weight I haven''t seen in years and feeling just wonderful. I live with my husband, I have grown children who live in other states. I love to garden and spend a lot of time there especially in the summer. We live 15 mi from a small city and people are always surprised to see "all the beautiful flowers out there." We like also like to grow a lot of our produce. Keep busy mostly with propagating, trimming, weeding, and making compost for new gardens.
I love to walk but prefer to find good places to hike. Now when I don''t get exercise for a day or so I feel the craving to get back to it.

Other Information:
Looking for anyone who has been on the Atkins new low carb plan.......I could use any advise..especially in all the measuring of vegetables etc.

Did anyone ever tell you how to get on your team's map. You need to go to your list of Spark Teams (not on your page) but under the start menu is a place called "My Spark Teams", click on the see all of my teams button. Scroll down to find the list of your teams and then click on the "Manage my Team" button and you can then check to be shown on the team map. Hope this helps. Good luck with achieving your goals. emoticon

Isn't gardening just the greatest? Good exercise, too? Your entry garden reflects a lot of tender loving care. It's beautiful.

Here's hoping you'll meet than next 10# goal. You've worked hard to achieve so much. Congratulations!

Hey, love seeing your weight going down. Hope you are doing well otherwise too. I am not doing that well, but I keep trying. I can do hardly any walking now so that slows things down. I do hope all is well with you and your family. Much love, Betty

Your entry garden is breathtaking !!

My husband purchased a pond kit about 3 years ago and gave it to me for Mother's day...the kit still sits in the shed. I told him this spring, I was going to dig my own hole.

Best of luck in your weightloss journey !!
