Ready to get healthy for life!

Well, what can I say about myself? I've battled weight ever since my teenage years. Some years are better than others. I recently got married, and was loosing weight without really trying for it, but a few months later and I was at my biggest size yet. I really just want to be a steady, healthy weight...But that's always been easier said than done. Why does being healthy have to be so hard? Enough of that now...Hard or not, I'm strong enough to do this.

My Goals:
I want to stand next to my 6'0", 165 lb husband and not think that people are asking "what's he doing with her". I just want to step on a scale and have my BMI point to "normal".

My Program:
Since my husband's blood tests came back with dangerously high cholesterol and triglycerides, we've been on a low sugar, low fat, low cholesterol, low carb, low sodium diet. What else can we possibly cut out? :-) The Wii fit is a great workout! So worth "caving in" to my husband for a new gaming system.

Personal Information:
My name is Shannon and I currently live in Alabama.

Other Information:
I have 2 dogs and 2 cats...They're my kids. They keep me on my toes and prevent boredom around the house. I can't imagine a better family!

I found these Motivational Quotes to remind employees and others to eat healthily at work and in the home:-
.
"You can't change where you come from.
You can change where you are going"

" We are what we repeatedly do"

"The first wealth is health"

"Never eat more than you can lift"

" We never repent of having eaten too little"

"He that takes medicine and neglects diet wastes the skills of the physician"

"Those who think they have no time for healthy eating will sooner or later have to find time for illness"

"The wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings. Let food be your medicine"

"To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art"

I found these very thought provoking. Hope you enjoy them too.

I came across your page and hope you don't mind me adding you as a friend. Your dogs are sweet. I love the cat with the broccoli. That is how our cat would react. emoticon emoticon

I feel you. I had to stop most of my volunteering as it had somehow become a second full time job; now I stick to just the basics with them. Glad to hear you are still on the fast track at the gym! Go you!
