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: 88,175

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.

I found you scrolling through the Spring 5% Challenge looking through the teams to see if I knew anybody. I am always drawn to the hiker spark members. I love hiking, love to be outdoors, joined an outdoors group about 3 years ago and now I go on 4-6 hour hikes about once every 3 weeks and also do a morning hike up the same trail every Tuesday morning with my friends and our dogs. I live in a mountainous area but had not gone too much until I joined the outdoors group, now, I have done about 30 different hikes and there are still more I haven't done yet. Hiking does so much for my physical, mental and spiritual being.

Spring is in the air... a great time for planting and nurturing the seeds
of health and to start something fresh and trust in the magic of beginnings.
We got this! emoticon
