It's a Forever Lifestyle Change.

I can't believe I have been with SparkPeople for four years. I have learned so much and have met so many great people. I have learned how to track my food and count calories and I know now that I have to put exercise into my life every day. Before my heart surgery I could walk three miles a day and play tennis three to four times a week and I am getting back to that. In 2011 I had lapband surgery and I really like having it as a tool to lose the weight I still have to work hard and eat ...
I can't believe I have been with SparkPeople for four years. I have learned so much and have met so many great people. I have learned how to track my food and count calories and I know now that I have to put exercise into my life every day. Before my heart surgery I could walk three miles a day and play tennis three to four times a week and I am getting back to that. In 2011 I had lapband surgery and I really like having it as a tool to lose the weight I still have to work hard and eat healthy before the lapband surgery I was almost 250 pounds. I know the lapband works I have seen a few woman in my town that my lapband surgeon has done surgery on and they look amazing. There is so much to give up so you don't get sick I gave up red meat for my heart health but, it's also hard to eat it with my lapband and I feel it was a good choice for me. I don't eat bread, pasta, sugar or salt. I don't drink soda at all but, I am known to sneak in a Carmel ice coffee once in awhile. I am not on a diet I just try to control myself and watch what I put in my mouth. Some day I would like to be proportionate to my height maybe 130 pounds. I know it can happen. Let's do this together. Always looking for new Spark friends add me any time.

Hi Patty Happy Sunday !!
Hope it gets cooler over there for you.
For some reason in CT this summer it didn't get hot at all really. It's been a strange summer. Never really got that humid. Very weird. It's warm everyday but nothing like the years prior
Glad Tim is driving and happy. Hope it foot ball goes well. Jonathan is super happy doing well keeping busy in college. I talk to him everyday and we sometimes skype on the computer. Yes we miss him like crazy.
Chris and I are very solid happy crazy in love and so ready to live together. We climbed a lot of obstacles this past year with the distance but we hung in there. I'm so ready to move and be closer to him. I can't wait. If I find a place next month then I can move in Ohio in Oct 1st. I'm hopeful
Lots of work and changes to happen. Exciting.
It will be nice to drive half way and meet you. Chris would drive me anywhere to get that chance.
Skating is going well. I'm getting stronger on the ice each time. My ankle is weak but Fridays lesson went really well.
I will still skate in Ohio but not sure with lessons and stuff till next year. I'm sure I will teach though at the rink I really liked.
I walk a lot here too to build up my strength
I hope your getting stronger each day too. Once fall is here you will be able to do more and maybe get your tennis going again.
Have a nice Sunday and week ahead. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
