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. ...

SparkPoints: 83,509

Fitness Minutes: 74,665

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.

Bill, did you change you ID name? This morning it said BA 5454 and it was your pix, or am I missing something.

I just looked closer into BA5454 and it isn't you. SHE has on the same blue shirt, has the same kind of harness on, with a walking stick, and THE hat. Really had to look and read HER profile. You must check it out.

Thanks for visiting my page. I looked for an emoticon of a piggie, but all they had was a ham. Don't think you'd want to eat a feral pig or a Russian boar!! Have a great day tomorrow!

emoticon for stopping by. I am glad the new day gave you a new perspective of your eventful trip to the ranch.
Today's food for thought is by H. Ross Perot:

“Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last-minute of the game, one foot from a winning touchdown.”
