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: 68,443

My Goals:
To be a healthy weight so I can be more active - and vice versa! Specifically:
weight under 200# by the end of 2015. 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!
'15 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.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Maybe the peaceful vibe of the picture comes from that glass of wine I had as I painted. I was feeling pretty mellow.

It sounds like you are enjoying your trip out East for Easter!

Perhaps not brave but I am on a bit of a roll and I would like to ride that toward some success. The scale simply won't budge other than the little bounce up and down with the same 1 or 2 pounds coming and going at will. However, the pants fit better even straight out of the dryer! LOL So I know my efforts are having some payoff.

sigh...don't you just wish we didn't have to work at it so? LOL

Tony probably feels warm in his new bedroom too. Good thing he's a Packer fan!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the kind words. My BS and MS are both in Speech Therapy but I wrote more reports than I ever wanted to write so my writing skills have been honed.

I am still taking Meloxicam for my heel. I'm supposed to be weaning off but I thought for a couple of days I'd resume dosage and then go back to the weaning process. I don't feel too bad today but my heel and thigh are definitely hurting. At least the knee is good.

I'm not looking forward to the snow. I, personally, feel I've had enough winter enjoyment and it can just stop now. I want to plant my garden instead.
