MamaOwls gives a hoot

I am a grandma that wasn't keep up with her grandsons because of bad knees and too much weight. I still need to lose more weight but I am more able to keep up with the boys. One is 7 and the other is 5. They are a handful but I really enjoy them.

My Goals:
I've heard we will have combined 3 class reunion next year so maybe I can get down to below 170 by then.


I would like to be below 170 before my 40th class reunion sometime in the summer of 2012. I'm not sure when so I need to be prepared. We didn't have a reunion this year so I was saved by that fact.

I really hope to be below 180 by the Randol Family Reunion July 29th. I made it with plenty of time to spare.

To lose 3 pounds by my Sparkpeople Anniversary. I will be at about 180 pounds if I do.

Didn't quite make this one either.

Lose at least 20 pounds before my birthday in April. I didn't quuite make it. I was 1.5 pounds away, but I'm happy I got that close.

I would like to be able to wear clothes that aren't XL or XXL Most every thing I wear now is Large. Hooray.

I have gotten out of the XXL clothes and depending on the style I can wear mostly Large. I guess I need to create a new goal.



My Program:
I've been using the Sparkpeople site since mid June 2010. I it has made me more aware of the foods I eat and helped me make better food choices. I am now walking almost every day, something I haven't done in years. Hopefully, I can sustain theses good health habits for the long term.

Personal Information:
I have been happily married to my best friend and motivator for 40 years. I'm a moomaw (grandma) to two terrific little boys whom I get to see a lot of, We all live in southwestern Colorado. I have worked at the same job for over 15 years. I've struggled with my weight most of my life but hopefully I've finally found my secret.

Other Information:
I like to crochet and sew. My husband and I have recently started square dancing again after almost 35 years. We are having a great time and getting lots of good excercise in the process.

Hey... So, what kind of surgery? Could you get some hand weights to help hold you over while you aren't walking? Oh, I'm so sorry. There is almost nothing worse than knowing you CAN'T move! Will keep you in my thoughts!

Best,
J

Hey, I to am SO READY for spring. The only grass I see is where my husband plowed for our dogs to go out. It's still up to my knee in the back yard. I don't think I have looked forward to 'weeding' as much as this year! But, like all things, it will come in due course. We actually got another 2.8 inches of snow yesterday, and more on Friday! I don't think some of the piles will be gone until July!! Oh well, can't change that now can we! How are you? Are you busy? Small steps? Yes?
Be well, stay out of trouble, and talk soon!
Best,
J

My husband and I found the Elliptical on the side of the road, we knocked on the door to see if it worked they said yes, they just wanted to get rid of it, we would NEVER have gotten it as they are so expensive so this was a great way to get one:)

Hope you are well, happy Year End!!
