Ready for a new me

MOST RECENT UPDATE 2/9/15 -- Over the past 5 years, (see below) I have not made much progress. However, I am still learning a lot from my SparkFriends and about myself. I not gained (or if I did, it was temporary) and I have tried new eating and drinking habits. My age and metabolism are working against me. (Only the dates have changed in the past 2 years. In other words, the only thing I have lost is time.)

12/30/10 -- 230# I recently had an embarrassing episode on the airplane when we took our annual vacation. The seatbelt almost didn't fit!!!!! OMG! Talk about a wake-up call! In pictures, I look like Buddha. This week has been a time to make a plan to reach those goals I set almost THREE years ago!
************************
Hi, here I am, still trying to change! Tried everything out there, including gastroplasty over 20 yrs. ago, fen-phen, etc. and still do not have a handle on eating and exercising. Age 61, retired, no kids at home, travel around quite a bit. Had fibromyalgia years ago, but still think there is some residual symptoms. Neuropathy sometimes a problem; have high BP, borderline high cholestrol & diabetes. Slowly getting back to a walking program after knee probs.

Fitness Minutes: 65,309

My Goals:
To be a healthy weight so I can be more active - and vice versa! Specifically:
weight under 200# by the end of 2013. Well,THAT didn't happen, with a vacation and the holidays. SO now, my goal is 25# in the next 3 months. Exercise 6x a week for at least 45 min.
Lower Fasting Blood Sugar to 100 or less.
Lower Blood Pressure.
Lower Cholesterol.
Addendum: Lab tests Sept. '10 & '11 were all LOWER! (exc. triglycerides.) Dr. was pleased, as was I, to see that my efforts are showing! Yay for oatmeal!
'12 labs were "OK"

My Program:
Eating more veggies and fruits, less JUNK, less alcohol. I will pay attention to portions. I pledge to do 30-45 min. of exercise every day! (w/ one day of rest)

Personal Information:
Raelene here, living in NW WI, but my heart is in Jamaica! Or anywhere tropical. We have 3 children, 7 grandchildren, no pets. Our goal as a couple is to be there for each other when we are old and gray. Getting there fast!

Other Information:
Totally into music, movies and reading.

Your "good life" comment is the crux of the problem isn't it? The truth is, those "good" foods and beverages aren't really the good life...they are not to be banned from our lives but they can't be out of balance can they? Well, this is not an easy balance...we want so much...LOL and so it goes! My blog is my personal reminder to reign things in just a bit to again create the balance I can live "the good life" with. sigh

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It was Munson Winery in Owen which I think you've been to. My friend and I split a case so we could get a discount. I got a plum wine, cranberry, black currant, raspberry and two blackberry. I prefer my wine to be sweet but a couple of the ones I bought are semi sweet. We haven't opened one yet -- maybe Mayday is a good reason.

Hope your day is great!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! It's amazing how self control comes and goes so I'm trying to hang onto this episode as long as I can. Every time I learn something so maybe one day it'll stay.

hi sweetie, ok I'm back. Spark is finally on iPhone so much easier. Starting 2015 with a new determination, ok I know I've said it before but some one of these days it will stick. I must have lost and gained the same 30 lbs at least 10 times. XO K
