Reinventing Myself & Loving My Life

After learning I had dangerously high blood pressure, I embarked on a lifestyle change that resulted in a total weight loss of more than 50 pounds going from a size 14-16 to a 4-6). It came at a critical time in my life when I had just ended a 29 year marriage and moved halfway across the country (with my Black Lab Lily) to get a new start and return to my roots, near old friends and family).

After learning I had dangerously high blood pressure, I embarked on a lifestyle change that resulted in a total weight loss of more than 50 pounds going from a size 14-16 to a 4-6). It came at a critical time in my life when I had just ended a 29 year marriage and moved halfway across the country (with my Black Lab Lily) to get a new start and return to my roots, near old friends and family). The weight has remained off ---- and I found a new love. I've also become a very good cook --- learning how to prepare great tasting food that's also good for me. The miles and miles Lily and I walk together gives me time to think while strengthening my body and has also resulted in a healthy, lean and muscular dog. I found out that life can be truly good again ! But keeping the weight off is a never -ending job that needs to be tended to constantly. I find tips from Spark and other places promoting healthy living can be great aids in keeping motivated.

My Goals:
My goal is to maintain the weight loss I achieved back in '07 with a healthy diet and regular exercise that keeps me feeling good about myself and full of the energy I need to meet life's many challenges.

My Program:
I eat a diet that includes lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fish and poultry. I plan what I'll be eating at the beginning of the day, budgeting my calories just as one budgets their money. No foods are forbidden, so I never feel deprived. I track my food daily and also make an extra effort to walk and exercise daily.

I've been waiting to find the time to thank you for your comment on my blog earlier this month, and what better day to do so than on this wonderful day of giving thanks for all we've been given. I am glad that you enjoyed the blog and with your encouragement I have attained my weight loss goal, thank you.

Congratulations on your healthy successes to share with your family! You're an inspiration to me and it is so encouraging that the path I've taken towards a healthy lifestyle has proven successful for you over the year. I hope in three years to be where you are!

Have a happy Thanksgiving and three cheers for us both! emoticon
