Try, Try Again

I am 50+ years old. Arthritis limits my mobility. I am planning a 30th wedding anniversary trip to Spain in September 2010, and would like to be able to do some walking without too much pain.

Update 1/12/11: I had knee replacement surgery on 12/15/10. My recovery is going well. I will continue to take weight off so this knee will last as long as possible and so that my other knee replacement will be easier (now that I know what to expect). We did take our trip to Spain in September ...

My Goals:
I want to average a weight loss of 2 lbs per week this year through a healthy lifestyle. This would create many "pluses" in my life (including the satisfaction of losing over 100 lbs in one year; having a BMI in the normal range; no diabetes; no high blood pressure; less pain).

My Program:
I will record all my food in spark people. I will make exercise an important part of my day. I will journal every day in my little black book.

Other Information:
I will not sacrifice what I want most for what I want now~

I know you like analogies ... here's one I like that talks about getting discouraged:

"Imagine you are driving down a street where there
are lots of parked cars. You make a slight error in judgment
and hit one. Would you say to yourself, “Oh no! I
hit a car. Oh well, I might as well just go ahead and hit
all of them now,” as you continue plowing into one
vehicle after another. Of course not. You would stop,
assess the situation and get the information you need
to repair the damage. You would go on with your life
having learned a lesson to drive more carefully and not
hit parked cars! When we have a set back we need to
learn from it and move on!"

No more plowing into all the cars for either of us :)
