Slowly Losing Weight and Getting Healthy


I'm making this a lifestyle change not a diet!

Dieting always leads to NOT dieting which equals gaining it all back. I am done with that!
It took years to develop my bad habits and I expect it will take years to develop my healthier habits.
I am working on it! I will never give up!
I will get down to a normal weight!

In 2013 I will weigh in EVERY Wednesday.
I will try to lose every week. It's OK when I don't!

I am enjoying hiking most Fridays with my hubby. We are doing about 4- 12 miles each time. We have explored some amazing places!

I go to the gym twice a week. Most weeks.

I have a chronic bladder condition that sometimes limits my activities. I will not let it stop me!

Veggies have become a much bigger part of my diet and hubby, who does most of our cooking, is on board with this change. He has perfected a yummy garlicky veggie mix that we have most nights with dinner and I have in my lunch the next day. Now I am mixing them in with scrambled eggs too.

I still struggle with junk food, especially in the evenings. I need to work on that!

Personal Information:
I am 52, happily married to Tom. We live in Tacoma WA.
We raised 5 terrific (most of the time) kids. Now we are enjoying the freedom of them being grown up.

I work as an assistant manager/truck driver at a distribution center in Kent. I get to drive a pretty blue tractor /trailer.



I like to explore, hike, garden and travel.

There are many wonderful hiking trails not far from my home in Tacoma that I visit often.
I also hike at Mount Rainier every chance I get.
Now that fall is here we are hiking around North Bend. We are loving exploring the trails there.

We are not given a good life or a bad life.

I ma doing great for the most part! I know about those injuries, as you know about my bike accident back in May and then in October wrenched my foot and hurt my heel. So, that still gives me problems off and on, but I still keep going.
I am glad to hear from you! Don't mind at all the update...always nice to know what you are up to. Miss your blogs! You live in such a gorgeous area! Glad you are still hiking!! And that you are feeling better. Have a good visit with your brother! He may not want to go back to NY with all the storms heading that way!
My scale hasn't moved much either, except maybe up a bit! emoticon
Hope your dry spell ends soon! That snow is important for the water levels. Even though we may hate it at times.

Hi, again. emoticon
It has been almost a year since I've been back and my body is complaining! This will be a New Year and , hopefully, a new "improved" me!
