I'm also new here and have to say this journey has been the hardest thing I have ever done! I am from Lago Vista TX , which is 42 miles NE of Austin . I've been married for 46 years and both hubby and I retired in Dec.2012. We are both trying to get our weight in check . I should have never let my weight get to be 165 as it was in 2011! I am seeing a PT for a shoulder and rotator cuff issue that is so painful I could cry! When I get through my therapy for ever how long it takes, we want to move further south !
I live by my food scale and measuring cups! And thanks to the Silver Sneakers program with our insurance we are able to go to the YMCA 3 to 4 days a week!
I have an awesome dog and cat and the dog doesn't let me forget that he needs a walk! I can't run anymore because of Osteo, in my left knee so I do a lot of walking , and elliptical at the Y. With everything that I do and as active as I am , I can't believe I am overweight! Talk about a slow metabolism! My cholesterol is off the charts but my Doc is checking me every 3 mos, until it comes down, I've had my meds changed twice!
This is a great site and made a promise to me that I won't give up!
Thank you for letting me babble on!
