MOST RECENT UPDATE 12/23/16
Went Low Carb in July. Over the past 5 months, my hubby and I have lost 20+ lbs each and have not felt deprived. This is the longest I have stuck with any program in many, many years. I plan to continue and perhaps add some fruits and other variety in moderation. My goal is 40 or less grams of carbs per day, but sometimes I find myself at 20 or less. I joined another Spark Team with a Paleo focus, so am looking for inspiration and validation. 2017 is going to be a Onederland for me!

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: 74,319

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!

    Thank you for your comment on my blog and the goodie. I had my PT evaluation yesterday and feel very encouraged. I'm so glad I decided to go to this woman. She really thinks outside the box.

    Yup...I got out there and thank goodness I have all this ballast to keep me from blowing away! Sheesh it's windy! Hope you had a reasonably good day today and even more, I wish you a good night's sleep for a change.

    Hi Raelene! So good to hear from you. Happy New Year!

    I am not really active here at all. I log in every day and my exercise tracks directly from my fitbit. I set a goal for 125 active minutes each week, and I just got to 56 WEEKS of meeting this goal!!!

    The trouble is, I still EAT way too much!!!

    I'm glad to hear that you are doing well. Maybe I should come around more. Maybe all my old friends could help me get a grip!
