Biggest Goal---Saving My Life

Self-destruction has many agents; mine have been gluttony and sloth. I have plenty to live for; sick and tired of being sick and tired; ate myself into diabetes and severe high blood pressure. I have weighed over 200 lbs since July of 1997 (highest weight 245) ; enough is enough!!
I actually have goal measurements more than a goal weight; my highest waist measurement was 51 in and I want it down to 28. Much research has convinced me that 140-145 lbs is a good, workable goal ...

I actually have goal measurements more than a goal weight; my highest waist measurement was 51 in and I want it down to 28. Much research has convinced me that 140-145 lbs is a good, workable goal weight for me--maintained close to that weight for a long time in the past, especially once I add some more muscle.
I want my hourglass back (tired of being shaped more like a barrel)...here's to success!!!

My Goals:
Getting my weight down to 140 from my worst of 245 should get rid of my high blood pressure and control my Type 2 diabetes--no longer dragging around 105 lbs of dead weight should help my fatigue and foot and knee pain a lot!
Making exercise a habit; a strong heart and strong muscles will enable me to do all I need and want to do!!

My Program:
Food: After much trial and many errors I decided to start Zone again--ratios are the same as the Joslin Diabetes Center reccommendations. Problems w/ meat again so mostly vegetarian (plus some fish/seafood) for now. Allergic to wheat, millet and bell peppers, so choices are a bit limited but I can manage just fine. If it isn't delicious I'm not going to eat it!!
Exercise: Lowest possible impact a must due to torn-up, neuropathic feet so using good home pedaler, body weight, free weights, Pilates etc.
Attitude: treat myself like I matter--made my body into living sacrifice for enough years to essentially ruin my health so now focusing on gettting well and taking care of ME.

Personal Information:
Tired, lumpy middle-aged Respiratory Therapist (now greatly disabled by chronic pain and diabetic complications) moved to Kansas City area from Cincinnati. Fed up with being chronically ill which is mostly due to chronic self-neglect and food abuse.
Live with adult daughter and two spoiled-rotten rare-breed purebred cats; setting up new life challenging but fun!

Other Information:
Love sewing (now making clothes again), needlework (bought yarn as souvenirs in both Ireland and Alaska), travel, and recipe collecting/inventing; learning how to make healthy versions of my ethnic faves.
Also really into purebred cats; ask me about Cat Fanciers Association shows!
