I am re-committing myself to lose the weight and get healthy again. I want to be able to play with my two grandchildren without getting out of breath or too tired. I'm overweight, well, ok...fat. (yes, I actually admitted it) I've never smoked but I do have exercise induced asthma (go figure, LOL), obstructive sleep apnea, and acid reflux. After research on these, I found one could be the cause of the other and they all could be caused from being overweight. Most days, I eat as few processed foods as possible but sometimes life happens and I eat unhealthy but I start back over again. I will do my best to get the excess weight off and keep it off for good. I'm a work in progress.

My Goals:
I am wanting to lose weight carefully so I don't re-gain as I did years ago when I had lost down to 130 (ended up having my gallbladder removed because I lost 50 in 3 months, way too quick). I hope this will also help reduce my cholesterol, acid reflux, sleep apnea and increase my energy so I can keep up with my granddaughter and grandson that will be here May 2011!

My Program:
1. I WILL incorporate 5 fruits & vegetables throughout my meals per day.
2. I WILL drink at least 6 glasses of water per day (and stop drinking sodas).
3. I WILL choose leaner cuts of meat.
4. I WILL do my exercise of the morning to get my metabolism started.

Other Information:
This is NOT a diet. It's a life-style change....a way of life!

I think I will sell all my "diet" books 'cause all I need is 'The Spark' and SparkPeople. ;-D

    Well I got a set-back during my check up with the Sleep Apnea doc. I weighed 192. Evidently my scale doesn't work correctly! It shows lower. So I'm going to get a new one this weekend. Any suggestions for a good, cheap one is appreciated emoticon

    I'm not going to let that get me down. I'll change my starting weight to 192 and go from there (since I don't really know what that was to begin with). What else can you do? Just go forward from here and stick with it! emoticon
