My goals are to be free of disease and health problems that come from being overweight. In the process, I know I will have more energy, clothes will fit better, and I will save a lot of money that would otherwise be spent trying to regain my health.
I enjoy walking indoors and out. When I am indoors I use an elliptical or Wii Walk It Out. I average 1-2 hours a day 6 days/ wk. Most days I stay within my calorie range by using the food tracker. Whole grains, fruits, vegetables and nuts are my mainstay. I quit drinking soda and replaced it with water.
It's so good you have such a strong support network. I'm sure the friend you helped yesterday really appreciated all you did.
I almost went back after I posted my three things to add a 4th....I saw my first daffodile sprouts coming up yesterday morning from the bulbs I planted last fall right after I got diagnosed. At the time, I didn't know if I'd be around to see the results this spring. it's so nice to see them!!
