Starting Over

My name is Bill. I regained a lot of weight during the past six months taking care of my wife. Now that my beautiful wife has passed away after a 4-year battle with Amyloidosis, it is time to start taking care of myself. It may be difficult at first because of the grief, but I have to do it!

While I didn't do well with the last 2 challenges, I'm determined to do better on the Summer Challenge. My Goal: I want to drop 11 pounds (5% of my weight) by the end of the challenge. ...

Fitness Minutes: 67,270

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

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'm currently finishing a vacation cabin at some acreage I have near Rocksprings, TX. This was our "get-away" spot where my wife and I could really enjoy nature.

that embraces me with a peace..
this is a special day for you..
but, you share in such a way..you give me a hope not to fret over what I can't control. Love...no regrets...love..no matter what is in the future...
And live our best life...together...
Living your life to the fullest expression of yourself...what a tribute to her..to your relationship....
WEAR IT OUT!....leave nothing behind.
(still see that trout you are going to be pulling out of that water!)
I love fish...I guess eating it more then fixing it...

I am getting to like this connecting with others...my fingers are doing something besides licking them!!
I am pushing through a lot of under lying issues that I left or didn't want to deal with...
Knowledge is good...only..if we are willing to do something about it.
My eyes are opened a little more with my life and things around it.
Thanks for your comments..they really mean a lot to me.
I just got back from my weigh in at my Dr.
Got to drop some meds...lower some..lots of praise...
Might as well do one more month of the same things....
I want ALL the freedom I can get!
Enjoy your best life....I am sure that is what "your honey" would want for you. until next blog.....peace....me,betsy

Hi bill... I dropped off the scene from the teddy bears i think last fall... had so many family issues that it was very hard to even think about myself... but i realize that i need to take care of myself first... no matter what the issue if we don't look after ourselves we are no good to anyone...

I am very sorry to hear about your wife passing... the last i was on here she was stil with you and you were caring for her... it is hard to lose someone you love. grief is very hard to deal with .. it comes in different ways to each of us...

I tend to eat my way through it and that isn't good...

it was good to see you on here... i got put on the tiger monarchs for this challenge... was disappointed not to be with the bears again... but am doing the best i can do with health issues that i deal with.

have a great day and wishing you all the success on your weight loss journey emoticon emoticon
