I Gotta Get It Right!

(Updated Feb 2013) I'm tired of the doctor telling me I'm borderline this and that. I tried getting my blood pressure and cholesterol under control with diet and exercise. My blood pressure came down and my cholesterol went up, so now I have to take medication for that. In a couple of months I will be cancer-free for 8 years. It's nearly time for my annual cancer checkup. When they do the blood tests, I'd like to see some improvements.

After Christmas I bought a Wii and Wii Fit and have been finding fun ways to exercise. It helps to get me moving more in the winter when I can't be out in my yard and gardens. I also have gotten back on my treadmill that sat idle for WAY too long.

Yesterday I started a new Women's Bible Study called "Made To Crave". It is not a diet, but empowerment to make healthy choices. It is giving me hope. When I got home I got back on SparkPeople. I gotta do this and this time I gotta get it right! (This last paragraph was written in Feb of 2012)

Since I wrote it a year ago I've fallen off the wagon, lol, and have just recently gotten back to healthier eating. I feel much better and even stronger and younger. My BMI is finally in the normal range and I plan to stick with it.

SparkPoints: 15,570

Fitness Minutes: 869

My Goals:
I want to lose another 15 pounds to be where I was when I graduated from high school, and firm up some muscles I haven't used in the past 8 years because of my illness and job.

My Program:
(Updated 2/17/13) I'm using SparkPeople, Dr. Gott's No Flour No Sugar Cookbook, other healthy recipes. I 've started back on my treadmill and added Wii Fit.

Personal Information:
I live in Iowa on a small farm with my husband of 48 years.
I raised 3 sons and 2 granddaughters. I have one adorable great-granddaughter and a brand new granddaughter! A great-grandson will join our family in a couple of weeks. All are beautiful, of course, and more precious to me than my own life.

Other Information:
I'm a born-again Christian. I don't argue religion with anyone, because I know what I know is true. I buried an adult son and survived cancer, only because of God's grace and mercy. No one can disporove that!
