I need to be fit to survive Disney World with five grandkids !




I want to be a healthy weight so I can wear a bathing suit on the beach and not feel uncomfortable.




Wilfred helps his friend find her memories by sharing his. I hope I can do the same.

I want to be healthy and fit by the time I turn 60.....

so that I will live to enjoy 70, 80 and beyond!





Member Since: 1/18/2010

Fitness Minutes: 2,556

My Goals:
My main goal is to regain my fitness and my health while I lose the weight. Along the journey, I hopefully will have "SPARKED" these secondary goals:
---Bring down my cholesterol and BMI
--- Live longer so that I see my grandkids grow up... and maybe even see great grandkids
--- Be active with friends and family
--- Not be embarassed to see old friends
--- Relax around other people and be myself
--- Have people ask "Have you lost weight?"
--- Wear a swimsuit on the beach
--- Keep up with all my grandkids




My Program:
I've just started Jan of 2010 so I am still taking baby steps, trying to find what will work best for me. At the moment I am counting calories and trying desperately to keep my fat, protein, carb levels all in the right ranges.
I am also getting 30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week -- trying for 6!



Personal Information:
I just had my 59th birthday and I am bound & determined to use this last year before I turn 60 to get in shape! I am a retired 2nd grade teacher and librarian who has recently moved (with DH) to northwest Florida. We have built next door to my parents, to be able to help them age gracefully. (As if I'm not already trying to age gracefully myself! lol)


Other Information:
Other Interests:
Reading - Kindle
Pets - 3 Rat Terrier mix
Gardening - I have a brown thumb but I'm trying to switch to green! At least it's great exercise :)

    Hey--

    Hope you're enjoying spring. It finally arrived in ATL many weeks later than usual, but the last few weeks have been spectacular.

    Thank you for tracking my status reports while I was going through a down period last month. Knowing there were other people out there fighting the good fight helped me keep going, even when all I could do in a given day was log in, track food and fitness and (mostly) stay in target ranges for each.

    Hope all is well with you and yours--
    Mel in ATL

    I got tickled when I read where you wrote that you have a “brown thumb”, because my experience in Florida was that practically all I had to do was to stick a plant into the soil & then they grew quite effortlessly! I miss that blessing!

    Since leaving the Sunshine State my formally “green thumb” has reverted to it’s original “brown thumb” condition!

    Be blessed!
