Functional Exercise

Exercise is part of everyday life. In past generations, they had a lot of functional exercise built into their lives, and that is what I work on everyday. I live, and take a few more steps, or lift something, and get up during commercials and do housework.

RESET your TIME ALLOWANCE for Weight Loss!!!!

I am near my GOAL weight --only a little more than 5 lbs. away! I KNOW it's easy to be anxious about the last pounds before achieving GOAL WT!

Plant a Garden

Yes, it costs $ to put in a garden, but you will definitely get a great return on your investment. I like to can tomatoes and make jelly. Getting back to what our grandparents did is not only healthier, but smarter!

Keep an eye on medication levels as you lose weight

I began to feel light-headed and faint sometimes after losing weight although I was eating and exercising in the recommended ranges. In fact, my improved health meant that I was over-medicated and my doctor reduced my prescribed medication to my new weight and metabolism. Great news!!
