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. ...

SparkPoints: 88,539

Fitness Minutes: 79,465

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.

Wow! Hauling 50# bags UP a ladder??!! Holy mackerel! What kind of wildlife are you feeding? Yes, you need a new category for weight lifting!! I'd be on the sofa the rest of the day!

I wear a heart rate monitor when shoveling or hauling wood, etc. My SAT can't track it correctly & gives me 35 burned calories after 65 min. of shoveling & throwing snow up a 6' berm! So I add a few min. & the rest of my burned calories. I fear that other SPers think I'm dishonest but I'm NOT. I just want credit for 65 min of hard work & 408 burned calories (HRM's report!)

As we approached our garage, we saw 2 moose just 200' from the house stumbling through the downed timber. One guy was flailing & lifting his legs up high to get over the timber...crunch, crack, crunch. We could hear them long as we could see them. Fun to watch (from inside the car..not face-to-face). Their tracks are everywhere, so I'm a little reluctant to start snowshoeing up the mtn alone. I'm not very quick on snowshoes in deep snow. Have a terrific day...take care of yourself, pal!
