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.

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.

hey Bill .... how's everything in your neck of the woods? what have you been up to lately?

gettin' hot here in AZ but at least now that we've been here (on again off again) for 3 years, I no longer feel like I'm gonna die just because the temp gets over 90

Hi Bill. Remember me...I was on the Teddy. Bear. Team with you a year or two ago. I remember when you went to. Mardi Gras last year or the year before (mind is slipping), anyway thought I'd let you know that I'll be in NOLA for 8 days beginning next Wednesday. WhooHoo! Good luck in the challenge bro. I'm on the Champions on the Kitchen Team this 5% Challenge. Say hi to all my beloved Teddy Bears for me. bev
