Starting Over

My name is Bill. I gained a lot of weight over the past several years taking care of my beautiful wife. Now that she has passed away after a 4-year battle with Amyloidosis, it is time to start taking care of myself. The first year had mixed results, but I'm determined to turn this around. The activity isn't the problem - it's the healthy eating. I will do this, though!

I'm taking part in the Spring 5% Challenge. My goal is to lose 11 pounds during the challenge.

Fitness Minutes: 93,565

My Goals:
I want to get to 180 lbs by August 2105. While I can't run very much due to tendon damage after a broken leg, I want to continue the habit of exercising daily while eating healthier.

My Program:
Eat healthy, watch the portion sizes, and exercise frequently. This formula always works, but it's easier said than done! I've got to find a way to make them habits instead of things that I HAVE to do.

Personal Information:
I live in San Antonio, Texas - an absolutely great place! (except perhaps in July and August...)

Other Information:
I grew up in Texas, but spent 26 years in the Air Force. After retiring from the Air Force, I worked another 15 years at Brooks AFB, TX as a contractor. I love outdoor activities of all types. I especially like hiking vacations. My son and my 7-year old grandson went with me on a 20-mile hike in the mountains of Wyoming last year.

Here is my Saturday quote for you by .~ Marta

Never give up, and be confident in what you do. There may be tough times, but the difficulties which you face will make you more determined to achieve your objectives and to win against all the odds."

emoticon and Happy Friday! I hope you have an emoticon weekend filled with joy and fun! My quote for today is by Francis of Assisi :

"Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible."

Here is to new beginnings and doing the impossible. Remember emoticon emoticon emoticon

Checking in on a few SPARK friends and wondering how you are...I gave up the computer battle with this site and while on facebook found their page, clicked and have been on site for 15 minutes and still going.
I must loose some weight first priority in battle with sever spinal stenosis but cannot walk much, use a cane if I go out of our house and can't trust legs to hold me up ... quite a change in a few months... not fair, I just got my heart fixed and now my lower body goes numb - lots of work and changes for us but still strong faith and will do my best. How are you?
