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.

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~

Yes, I do have a 5K on nov 21. It's just so hard to keep on track! Well... no one said it's gonna be easy. I stuffed myself with food since elementary days... it's not that easy to lose all the weight i have gained over the years.

how are you doing by the way? :)
