Here's me on March 10, 2010 [after losing 20 pounds]
ME in October 2009 ~ Naturally, in front of a restaurant!
I'm a little teapot. . .
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I've been fighting this battle most of my life . . . now is the time to win the war, once and for all!
1. Become more active, thus fit.
2. Use activity instead of food to calm and center myself in times of stress.
3. Keep hands (and mind) busy when I do sit, knitting, reading, etcetera.
4 Put the task of becoming a healthy weight behind me, once an for all!
I am trying to become more active. Once I sits, I sits. That has to change. As I get in better physical shape, hopefully, I will be able to drop some of the many medications along with the many extra pounds I carry around!
Originally from New England, married a long time (over 30 yrs), two grown children, one grandson, one granddog; MA from USF, a true Jack-of-all-Trades, I love sewing and quilting but have done many, many different things (roofing, social work, teaching, volunteering, housekeeping, painting-- all sorts of things). I try to enjoy those around me and life in general. Currently, I am facing a classic Boomer stage-- role reversal with a parent. I belive having family support and self-determination will help me take on this new role with grace.
I am well versed in all matter and form of diets... Weight Watchers (have my 50 lb pin!), TOPS, South Beach, e-diets; you name it! Joing with a friend (my daughter) will help me keep on track. Besides, a little friendly competition can be a good thing!
