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.

SparkPoints: 107,341

Fitness Minutes: 93,923

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.

Bill ~

I noticed in your "Current Status" above, that you're trying to eat healthy. A lot of people think that means the same as boring. Well, with the help of some herbs & spices, virtually any food can be made interesting. Don't know if you cook, but if you do, "spice it up" a little.

Ex*Air Force huh? Army for me {but not retired from it}

** EDIT = How did you get that "Fitness Gold Medal" for eating a healthy breakfast? It is just SO cool & I want to earn one or more myself. **

My quote for you today is by Buddha:

"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment."

Yes we're home. My travel blogs are usually after the fact once I have time to peruse my photos, re-read my diary and consider what might be of interest to others. I admire those who can manage this while on the road, but at the end of an active day all I want to do is unwind. Maybe it's age?
