Hi from Ontario Canada

Hi,
I live near Oshawa Ontario Canada. I'm in my 50's and need to lose about 40 lbs. I've been up and down over the years and at times have done quite well, but it's such a struggle anymore. I walk my dog, seem to eat right 90% of the time, count calories. Sometimes it's all so tiring isn't it? I think I grew tired of thinking of food all the time and have been on hiatus from exercising and tracking for about 8 months now. I used to go to the gym 4 or 5 times a week. Need to get ...
Hi,
I live near Oshawa Ontario Canada. I'm in my 50's and need to lose about 40 lbs. I've been up and down over the years and at times have done quite well, but it's such a struggle anymore. I walk my dog, seem to eat right 90% of the time, count calories. Sometimes it's all so tiring isn't it? I think I grew tired of thinking of food all the time and have been on hiatus from exercising and tracking for about 8 months now. I used to go to the gym 4 or 5 times a week. Need to get back at it.

I have an underactive thyroid and am pre-diabetic and trying my darndest not to become fully diabetic. It runs in my family. However, more than one dietitian has told me that those two syndromes, though neither one is terribly serious on its own, in combination make weight loss more difficult, and that I have to work twice as hard as a lot of people to lose weight. Oh Joy! I seem to do so much right yet weight loss is sooooo darn slow.

If anyone has extra willpower, please pass it on to me as I'm sorely lacking. :)

Member Since: 5/7/2007

SparkPoints: 4,059

Fitness Minutes: 3,795

My Goals:
To be healthy and to fit back into my Size 10 Wranglers. The last one's more of a dream than a goal, but sure would be nice.
P.S. In all honesty they're sort of stretchy size 10's, more like a size 12 really.

My Program:
I have been tracking my food intake for what seems like years now. I normally consume around 1300 calories daily. I work out at the gym 3 or 4 times weekly plus walk my dog every day. Recently I bought the Wii Active for my Nintendo Wii. What fun, though some days I'd like to clobber the virtual personal trainer, LOL. Hope it works.

Personal Information:
I live in the GTA, east of Oshawa.


Other Information:
I like Country music...the good "butt-kickin" type as opposed to the slow boring stuff that's on the radio lately. I also like rock n roll...oldies of course...like me.

I love the humour in Mae West's quotes. She was ahead of her time with sayings like "You only live once,but if you do it right once is enough."
