Getting there...

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Weigh in day today, down to 278.2lbs, BMI of 44.71. Not bad considering I started out at 300 lbs and a BMI of 48. emoticon Go me.
It is getting easier and a habit to eat and track . I am exercising more on my Wii fit plus, knee permitting. Bought me a new program as reward. EA Personal Trainer. Will start on that tomorrow.On my Wii fit Island bicyling , I moved up to advanced level, but I got lost trying to find all the flags. So I ended up doing 7.5 miles. emoticon
I quit my full time job, because it was still too much , too soon. So now I will look for something part-time. It just sucks to get old and have bad knees. especially as a Nurse , who has to be able to run all shift. emoticon
I just love trying out all new recipes from the Spark Cookbook and the Spark recipe website. My kids are learning to eat healthier and my husband lost 17 lbs and his Diabetes is under better control. I keep telling every one , it's not a diet, it's a life style change and I love it.
I keep spreading the Spark.....
And thanks to all my Spark Friends , who support and keep cheering me on, you guys are great and I love you all.

    You are so right! My husband would ask me, "Is THAT on your diet?" and I'd tell him again, "I'm not on a diet." It sure works better than a diet! Congrats on your progress, and on getting husband on board!

    I wonder if there aren't variants on nursing that would give you less running around - such as a smaller nursing care home or hospice.

How wonderful that your interest in eating healthier has spread to your family!
