rediscovering me and my world

I started my new lifestyle on January 9, 2012. I was 240 pounds, my knees hurt and I wasn't doing much besides work and home.

It is now September 15, 2014. I got down to 150, stagnated at 165 and now am back to 180 after my Father's passing. I am back in the gym, back tracking calories, back to low carbs, low fat, low sugar. I did it once, I will do it again. My goal is to be close to or under 160 by the end of this year and to reach my goal of bing active and fit as soon as ...
I started my new lifestyle on January 9, 2012. I was 240 pounds, my knees hurt and I wasn't doing much besides work and home.

I am back in the gym, back tracking calories, back to low carbs, low fat, low sugar. I did it once, I will do it again. My goal is to be close to or under 160 by the end of this year and to reach my goal of bing active and fit as soon as possible after that. I'd like to say 1145-150 bt my Docotr says with my active life-style and strength needed for my job, I ma need to be happy with 150. We shall see.
I am still grieving and learning how to move on after being a care taker for 15 years. My weight loss opened a new door for me once before and I look forward to spending more time outdoors, traveling and longer workouts at the gym. More healthy cooking and new discoveries in international cooking. (I think I was from Indian in a past life!)
So much to learn and re-learn...... onward!

Thank you for your words of support and encouragement on my recent blog. I totally agree with you as far as this becoming a way of life. And frankly, for the most part, I'm okay with that....in fact I am even enjoying it. That feeling of not being overly full, sluggish and uncomfortable is wonderful ! emoticon

Good Morning! I'm also from MN and one of my June goals is to check out more info on kayaking, and possible lessons.

I saw a Nana kayaking a few years ago and I thought hmm, looks cool.

Then with all the walking I do by the lake I have seen many women kayaking all various shapes and sizes. I thought, well my azz get stuck in there or am I too big??

Lol, I will fit. I researched a lot! So, here's to us!

Kayaking in JUNE!
