This Sunny Gal wants to see some progress!

Update: Oct 21, 2012: 20 pounds are now gone - so slowly! About 20 to go! I am halfway there, or more, depending on the results. I am shooting for 125 to 130. The thyroid, perimenopause and my age make this so difficult. Low carb seems to work better for me (and I love my carbs!), so I have been lowering those and adding more strength training. I need to be more consistent with both food and exercise if I want to get there!

Prior:
The last 3 years have been difficult weight-wise. I quit smoking and then my thyroid died. I need to turn this around. I try to stay hopeful, but fighting my age, menopause, my thyroid and my slow metabolism makes this a hard mountain to climb! So far, I have lost 10 pounds, not even an average of half pound a month. Very discouraging! I need to work twice as hard to get anywhere, but my body just does not want to do it!

My Goals:
Lose weight, shape up, and get healthy. And survive the experience. I would really like to be below 130 again, though 120 is probably the correct weight for my challenged height. But I will be happy with 130!

My Program:
I am working with DVDs, a recumbent bike, a rowing machine and the Wii to get myself back in shape. I need to be more consistent! The Sunny Gal team helps to keep me focused.

Personal Information:
I am married, with one daughter, and two grandkids - a girl and a boy. Unfortunately, they live across the country and we do not see them often enough.

Other Information:
I love to read, garden, surf the internet (especially SP) and play with my puppies.

My family is moving to Boston in the next two months!

Things aren't terribly well here. I'm struggling a lot, internally, and the extra stress from relocation isn't helping. Unfortunately, nothing to be done about the source of my struggles as they aren't in my hands, but I'm doing what I can.

I'm mostly packed, lol. I know. I have most of my things taken care of. Won't be listing until June as well. Gave myself some more time. Will be ready by then. Have a great week! emoticon

Hi! Thanks for stopping by the blog. The realtor stated that the houses in our area went in 3-77 days. I'm hoping it sells fast too as I don't want to pay 2 AC bills in the Summer.

I don't always write much. SOme days it's physically hard and some days I just have a hard time feeling like it. I really need to do some blogs, but I'm digressing there. Anyway, I just want to let you know again how much I appreciated the phone calls and visits when I was in the Phoenix hospital and how much they meant to me so far away from everyone. I had a very difficult time spending too much time awake. I do disagree with my son and daughter in law here about some things now, but they were so invaluable during those early times and their experience with hospitals and emergency care treatment meant a lot. They both reviewed charts and talked to drs and nurses, and they believe that over there once I was off the intensive care unit I was kind of overmedicated. I can agree with that. Anyway, I would love to visit you again but I don't know when our paths will cross for a face to face visit. However, we never know and one day I might end up in your physical path again. But till then I'm so glad we have the Sunny Gals to share on. I still wear my t-shirt by the way. Hope you have a wonderful day today!
