Ready for a new me

MOST RECENT UPDATE 12/30/12 -- Over the past 2 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.

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: 58,713

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.

Thanks for your kind words on my blog. I wish I could be my best every day but I'm sure not there yet. Some day ....

Hi Raelene,
I just thought I would say hello. I see that you were feeling dejected in your recent status. I hope your mood has lifted. I can't say that I have been doing very well with my eating! The best I can say is that I am not gaining weight. That counts for something.

Anyway, just thinking about you...

Let's face it that is one of the appeals of running as opposed to walking as is the calorie burn in an hour of running computing to pizza or ...................whatever, LOL I guess right now though, the thing that seems to be of the most value is that shedding of stress. Gosh I wish I had been a runner in my working years! Maybe I wouldn't have entered retirement with all this excess baggage. emoticon
