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: 109,447

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.

Taking few minutes to peak in on Spark friends of old ...debating about resuming efforts here if I can ... Had back surgery iOn Dec 1 nd did not go well - lost feeling in right leg and then horrendous pin when the nerves began to come back ..18 days in hospital and house bound since then ...am able to navigate with walker nd started cane training this past week. mental was also affected by anesthetic problems so have a long row to hoe ...Positive things are that I will progress some further along and will not know full progress till next Christmas - big PLUS is that dear husband got me a baby Yorkshire Terrier and I am enjoying puppy hood of a 4 pound bundle of joy ☺ How are you doing? I'm trying to check in with "old friends then will see if I bow completely our of Sparks or resume full fledge.
