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: 77,152

Fitness Minutes: 67,600

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.

Thank you for stopping by. I am glad you were able to use the umbrella. When Bill and I visited San Antonio it rained too, but I understand that the small amounts you get aren't enough. I would gladly send you some of ours if I could. I am tired of the rain, but I understand we are still in somewhat of a drought, but nothing like your area or even California. So far my vacation is going well, but I will be glad when I get to Arizona and California where it is sunshiny and warm! Have a great weekend! Hugs

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I've missed keeping up with spark friends while we solved our Internet problem.

I hope your walk/jog program is going well. I'm sure I told you that my first experience with that was 30 sec run/4:30 walk and repeat to 30 minutes. Slow and steady and you'll see improvement without injury,

Hang in there.
