Oregon Grandma

I am 69 years old now and still fighting the battle of the bulge. The move from Colorado to Oregon has not helped in the battle yet, but living in a new home in a new state is still in the adjustment stages. At least I'm still fighting my health battles and SparkPeople has been helping me for more than two years now. I lost 22-25 pounds and then gained and re-lost a few again.

I am 69 years old now and still fighting the battle of the bulge. The move from Colorado to Oregon has not helped in the battle yet, but living in a new home in a new state is still in the adjustment stages. At least I'm still fighting my health battles and SparkPeople has been helping me for more than two years now. I lost 22-25 pounds and then gained and re-lost a few again. I switched to the Atkins program which helped me break the plateaus feel much better without the cravings. The packing and moving and unpacking and living in chaos for the last 9 months has really thrown a monkey wrench into that program. Now that our temporarily live-in family members have moved out to their own place we can get our schedules and eating patterns back into a healthier routine.

An old song says that only the good die young, and I figure with my youthful history I'm going to be around 200-250 years, so I better take care of this body so I can enjoy those extra years!

My Goals:
My goals are simple: get my weight down about 25 more pounds and my clothes down about 2 additional sizes. My original AHA moment came when I realized 1 more pound would put me in the BMI obese category, and my target is to get into the healthy range and stay there.

My Program:
I am determined to get onto SP everyday and to track my calories when I do. Weighing and measuring portions has become a way of life. My biggest challenge has been to get our dietary habits reorganized as my husband has been our family chef for many years and now we will be sharing this task.

Personal Information:
I have transitioned from the paid workforce to retired status and look forward to discovering new places and creating new friendships.

Other Information:
I am deeply immersed in a wide variety of metaphysical activities. I welcome correspondence with those who share this journey.

Thanks for your support during my son's illness. It was frustrating, but he seems to be fine now.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Yes, a sweater or light jacket will probably be needed for the concert tonight, it's only up to 61 now and it'll be going down in the low 50's tonight. I am about ready to pull out my sweatshirts that are put away. This week has definitely been a preview of fall. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Hugs,
Shirl
