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.

Thanks for reading my blog and commenting. I thought I'd let you know that while I was searching for a recipe for radishes, I actually found one that uses the greens as well. I'm sure they are an acquired taste though, and not everyone would enjoy them.

Thanks again!

Thanks for the suggestions! A soak in Epsom salts is a GREAT idea. It seems pretty clean, but it still not "healed over". I have just kept a bandaid around it tight. It sure it ugly too. Anway, if it's not looking/feeling better for the most part in a week I'll cave and go to the doctor! I appreciate you checking in on me and encouraging me. emoticon

Hey lady, we have a 2007 Toyota 4 Runner ... with a V8. We are pulling an old 1975 Airstream Argosy ... Argosy are painted instead of the traditional silver bullets and they were only made for a short period of time. The Argosy is 3500 dry weight and tops out at 5000 loaded. Our Toyota has a towing capacity of 7000. We usually have NO problems ... if we have traction emoticon
