Hiking for Health

I am 55. I was thin for the first 25 or so years of my life. I still think I am thin. I need to develop a realistic sense of what I look like. I hope that will motivate me to take this whole health routine more seriously

I love reading, movies, anime, table-top gaming and video gaming. I would love to get back to hiking and camping. My creative outlets are in fiber; knit, crochet, tat, embroider, needlepoint, crewel work, quilt, and most recently spinning.

Update:
I am in graduate school now, Health Education. My first major project and paper are on preventing type 2 diabetes. For the project, I am proposing to use CDCs Diabetes Prevention Program. I think that it will dovetail nicely with Sparkpeople's resources. The project only requires that I know about this program and can write about it in a way to obtain funding for a community health project. I am actually working through CDCs DPP along with the SparkPeople 8-Week Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge. CDC wants participants to loose 7% of their initial body weight and work up to at least 150 minutes a day of exercise over a period of 6 months. My initial weight loss goal is to get down to 212 pounds. So 17 pounds in six months. Of course I'd like to lose more, but that is a very doable goal. I will start another 7% goal at 212 pounds.

So my paper and project will be done long before I get through the CDD PDD, and even before I complete the Sparkpeople 8 week program. That is okay, while the paper/project are for learning purposes, following the programs are for life.
