Watermelon Lady

Hi folks. I recently lost 35 pounds and hope to lose 45 more. My doctor said he would consider taking me off cholesterol medicine if I reached my goal weight. Weight loss goes very slow for me so it may take a very long time to get there. I may be around for a l-o-n-g time. I have always battled being a "junk-food junkie" so changing my eating habits (after 66 years) will be a tough challenge.

My Goals:
I want to (once and for all) change my eating habits from being a "junk food junkie" to only eating healthy food when I am hungry. I also want to get my cholesterol to where I don't have to take medication for it.

My Program:
I am writing down every bite I eat and use a calorie counter book to keep track. I also am trying to do between 1-2 hours a day on the treadmill, 4-5 days a week.

Personal Information:
My name is Susan and I live in Lancaster, Ohio. I collect watermelon items and my kitchen is full of them. I didn't gain all my weight from watermelon, however. I am a 67-year-old Christian and am happily married to my husband of 48 years. We have 2 children and 2 grandchildren and no pets.

Other Information:
I like to create greeting cards and grow flowers, but really hate housework. I would rather walk on the treadmill than dust and sweep!!

Geez! Louise! I just noticed the Spark Goodie that you gave me on 9-6-11.

emoticon It's my favorite gift EVER! AND... my favorite color, right size, JUST the gift I've been wanting....(I love a mystery!)

WOW!

You're good! (In every way!) Thank you!

LOVED the hat and scarf from LIFESGREAT2DAY! Very appropriate!

We had the same weird weather here! Friday it was 97, humid and sticky. I had the air conditioning on...the last few days have been 50's & 60's. I turned the heat on in the house because I was freezing! I never thought about the 'after effects' of the hurricane. Makes sense! I live in Mid-Michigan. Are you in the northern part of Ohio? Our leaves are changing and falling, all too fast for me, because of the sudden weather change.

This is the best time of the year - here - for watermelon though! I've been buying it everytime I go to the store. YUM! emoticon
