The day came when the risk to stay tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom

My Metamorphosis

Hello :) I'm 62 years old and married to my best friend for 42 years. We have a son and 2 daughters and 5 grandsons. The picture of my grandsons is way outdated as my oldest is now 16 years old and the youngest is 9 years old. I was a RN until I suffered a back injury in 2004. Since then I've been unable to stand for more than a few minutes because my back won't support me. I'm hoping the weight loss will help.

Hello :) I'm 62 years old and married to my best friend for 42 years. We have a son and 2 daughters and 5 grandsons. The picture of my grandsons is way outdated as my oldest is now 16 years old and the youngest is 9 years old. I was a RN until I suffered a back injury in 2004. Since then I've been unable to stand for more than a few minutes because my back won't support me. I'm hoping the weight loss will help. In the meantime I use a walker with a seat and if going a long distance my husband takes me in a wheelchair.

I've been away for a long time. But I'm back now and I love new beginnings! I'm gonna make it this time. I have a good support system (my DH is doing this with me) and healthcare team to back me up. But I realize I have to do the work and be accountable. I began my current journey on 1/25/2012 after a visit to a NEW physician and a wake-up call. I credit my new doctor with getting me started and to her I will be eternally grateful :) It's been 7 months and my lab values are now completely normal after 10 years of struggling with various health conditions. I feel soooo much better but I have so far to go still. I will persevere!

My Goals:
New Journey started on 8/15/2012

1.) My First AND MAIN GOAL is to get down to 245 lbs so I can get a recumbent bike (most only hold 250 lbs). I really miss bicycling!

2.) My TOP GOAL is to find tasty convenience foods that are nutrient dense and as close to nature as possible.

3.) My 1st MOST CHALLENGING GOAL is to exercise at least 3 days per week.

4.) My 2nd MOST CHALLENGING GOAL is to eliminate sweeteners from my diet.

5.) Ugh! Eliminate binge foods from my home...beginning with Ranch Dressing!

Personal Information:
I'm from Cleveland, Ohio.
I grew up in Pennsylvania.
We have 3 indoor cats.

Other Information:
I love to read. I read at least one book per week but usually more. I'm currently reading, "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak.






Also, I love peanut butter, it''s one of my weaknesses.

Hi just wanted to say hello.
emoticon

I'm a team mate on the Over 60 with 100 plus lbs to lose.

I see you live in Cleveland. I lived there for a while. My son was born there.

I love peanut butter too. I buy Arrowhead Mills crunchy most of the time and pour off all the oil. I have about 11 grams of that a day - my one treat with an apple.

Bye and I know you can make it.
