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: 95,645

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.

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?

Bill...I must say I was concerned when I again saw no post from yesterday this morning. Oh my, oh my, oh my...Thank the good Lord you are okay. I saw those trains fall off the overpass and onto the road below on the news and all I could think about was people getting hurt and you saying you were in New Orleans. What an experience and horror story that ended okay. I was in a grocery store when my phone told me to take cover once and that was bad enough, but being in the middle of it and hearing it. Again, thank you God that Bill is okay and alive to tell this story.
