Up until about age 43, I had no weight problems that were not self correcting.

I am dysthemic; Seasonal Affective Disorder and PTSD!I also have silent GERD I take daily medication.

My Status,1/7/2012
"SUNNYWBL is working hard to push herself out of the dumps and back on track."

I am slowly building up my activity level into weight loss mode again. I want to start working on weight loss again through Spring, Summer and EARLY Fall. The majority of calories burned in spring and summer have come from renovating the back yard gardens.

From a low of 145 pounds in 12/2010 I am back to around 170 pounds and need to RE-LOSE the weight. Aauuggh!

Breaking my wrist in fall of 2014 and hosing my back in early summer of 2015 has seriously limited my weight loss efforts.

Member Since: 12/4/2008

Fitness Minutes: 109,161

My Goals:
I am shedding the pounds that added up slowly and then a little faster when I drove a school bus for more than six years before I retired.
I am still shedding some of my house's accumulation of 'stuff'.
I never want to develop Type II diabetes.

My Program:
I got a GoFitWear armband and started tracking my activity and eating on July 1, 2009. Boy! no place to hide there, it tracks your activity 24/7! Later on, I could no longer get support or parts
8/20/09 down to 169!! (down 13 lb!)
8/30/09 down to 167 (down 15 lb)
12/17/09 down to 155 (32 Lb)
7/4/10 down below 151. (36 lbs) My low was 146.
I had to give up Curves on 12/31/2010 due to budget problems.
I mostly power walk or the Gazelle Edge for my cardio. I DO enjoy Strength Training.
I keep my sodium at or below 1600mg.
I'm sorry to say I have regained some of the weight I'd lost. 1/6/13

    My living in Maryland does seem like a stretch if all you knew of me is Hawaii & California! I've been all around the world - family heritage from the deep South, born in Alaska, childhood in the mountains of California - naturalists & hippies, adulthood in Germany (end of the cold war time) & Maryland, then middle age in Hawaii and southern California :O) I get around... it seems :O)

    Good to chat with you!! Audrey

    Hi Sunny, I didn't know you were from Pennsylvania. My son-in-law is from that state too. Is your connection to Pennsylvania the reason you asked about my connection to Maryland?

    Hi Sunny, I just noticed your comment on my page, about Maryland. My connection to Maryland is that I went to college there, the University of Baltimore (class of '95), lived there for more than 10 years, and my daughter lives there still with her husband and baby daughter. I lived in Anne Arundel County, fairly close to Annapolis and my daughter is north of Baltimore, near to Pennsylvania. Do you know Maryland?
