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: 99,990

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.

emoticon Hoping your Monday was a happy one. Today's quote for you by Confucius:

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.”

So, here's hoping you have a glorious week filled with rising above whatever challenges the week may bring you! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good morning Bill. Hope you've been having a great week. Just a quick thank you for dropping by and commenting on my blogs. Hope you get a chance to see my Two 'linked' true stories blog, as it's some Chicago history I learned from a friend in England. emoticon emoticon
