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. ...

Member Since: 3/2/2009

SparkPoints: 77,032

Fitness Minutes: 67,390

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.

Hi....
I read your blog...I was encouraged....
There are times in our life...it gets put on hold..for others...
A blessing to hear your life story....grief to be felt...released..
Then to live your best life....what your loved one would want..

I am 70..my hubby 79...I am aware of the short window we have...we are both active...healthy..it isn't forever..
Thank you for sharing...we do have "hope" at any stage of our life..
I have lost 30# and have 12# to go...maintaining is the next big goal..
I am starting to connect...blog by blog ..to be on focus to be a winner at losing...
day by day...meal by meal....
