Today a friend and I went around the island. Cetti Bay Overlook is a beautiful place to see. Several years ago a set of stairs were built to a higher level than the base that most people went to at this overlook. Because of my weight and knees I have never climbed those stairs. Today I did and took some wonderful pictures of Cetti bay, Cocos Island, Sella Bay and the surrounding area. There are nice railings on both sides of the stairs so coming down was easy also.
I am on a high!!

I have finally dropped another 5 pounds! It seems to have taken forever. Traveling did not do me good. I gained 5 pounds the first week and could not drop it until I got home and then it took another .... weeks to drop the next five. I am relived!
What I like about Sparkpeople! Support, support, support! Support from professionals, support from each other through blogs and chats, support from videos that show me how to do an exercise correctly,support from recipes of good food and ideas on how to fix more healthy favorites. I am pumped! Keep it up Sparks!
I went to the doctor yesterday after having blood work done May 20th. She was delighted that my weight was down. That is over 35 pounds since January 31st. Then she looked at my cholesterol, dropped 62 points; triglycerides, dropped 127 points; glucose, dropped 19 points and was very pleased. I told her about SparkPeople and she took the information down to give to some of her other patients who have been struggling with hypertension and weight loss.
I started out doing yard work in early January and was winded in ten minutes. I am up to 40+ minutes most days now.
She asked me if there was a teen program and I said I was not sure. Is there? I will pass the information to her if so.
The bottom line? THANK YOU SPARKPEOPLE! I especially want to thank all of the support people I meet on a daily basis here on the net through the different teams.
My long term goal? I want to attend my 8 month old grandson's wedding standing on my own two feet! If he is 25 I will be 82.
