JANUARY 1, 2015 I managed to keep weight down for two and 1/2 years. Unfortunately I allowed myself to gain about 6 pounds during this last holiday season. I can't let this happen. I must turn it around now!! I'm going back to the basics. Do the things that got me to my goal in the first place. Drink 8-10 glasses of water each day.(I've been slacking off). Eat my fruits and vegetables and stay away from rice and pasta. The most important thing I need to start doing again is workout ...
JANUARY 1, 2015 I managed to keep weight down for two and 1/2 years. Unfortunately I allowed myself to gain about 6 pounds during this last holiday season. I can't let this happen. I must turn it around now!! I'm going back to the basics. Do the things that got me to my goal in the first place. Drink 8-10 glasses of water each day.(I've been slacking off). Eat my fruits and vegetables and stay away from rice and pasta. The most important thing I need to start doing again is workout regularly. That will keep me where I want to be. 2015 is the year of Successes, whatever that means to you. ---------------------------------------- -------------------------------------- -------------
SUCCESS!!! My goal was to lose 100 pounds. I have lost 103 pounds. I weigh 170. I haven't been this small in a very long time. It may not seem small but it is. I still have those darn chicken arms. LOL. I'm not a spring chicken and I've been large so long that if I lose any more I will look bad. I decided I will stay right where I am and my doctor agrees. I am happy, healthy and my DH and I think I look great!!
My new goal is to help others succeed in their goal to become new healthier people.
1/2015 I will maintain my current weight
I will maintain my current workout regime
~When I wake up I will drink a large glass of water and eat a healthy breakfast ~Do a five minute exercise burst each morning before breakfast ~Do a least 30 minutes of Strength or cardio 6 days a week ~I will stay within my nutritional ranges as least 5 days a week
My name is Pam. I'm a Christian and have been married for 19 years and we were together 10 years before that. I have 4 grandchildren. Boy 22, girl 14, boy 6 and another boy 4. I'm Nana to all of them and I love spending as much time as possible with them.
I am disabled. It's frustrating because its only been about 5 years and I'm not used to being limited. I'm blessed because when I had back surgery it was completely successful and it stopped the majority of my pain.
I live a blessed life. All my needs are met and I am able to spend quality time with my 86 y/o Mom. She's happy and healthy and we have great fun together.
