TOMORROW I am going to start on SP again after being away for almost an entire year. I will continue to take ACE, eat as many of the food choices from Dr. Phil on his 20/20 Diet as I possibly can and DRINK MY WATER everday as I can. ALSO eat less salt and be more active and stay busy doing things that I need to do such as cleaning the house, walking more, getting out in the fresh air and just keeping busy and doing entries on SP instead of spending so much time on FB or watching TV in the lounge chair. MOVING is better than sitting still. I need to do more exercising and have more action daily.

My Goals:
My goals consist of:
1. feeling better
2. getting my weight under control
3. taking some of the pressure off my knees
4. keep my blood pressure low & keep it where I'm only taking one pill every other day.
5. helping others to feel better and reach their goals
6. encourage others
7. get back in my skinny clothes & shoes
8. showing others I can do this for myself as well as my family
9. living healthier to serve God better
10. keeping sugared foods and fats in check.

My Program:
I am first cutting my daily calorie intake. Also I am drinking at least 8 full glasses of water a day and trying to not drink a lot of caffeine. Also I am trying to cut my fats way down.

Personal Information:
I live in the midwest, my name is Janet, I have been married over 47 years, I have 2 children and am the grandmother of 7 and now have a great granddaughter. I love to scrapbook, I love to keep up with my friends and family either on the internet or by phone. I like to trace family history and I love Jesus with all my heart and looking forward to making Heaven my final home someday.

Other Information:
I am impressed with people who have overcome obstacles in their lives, who don't complain about their circumstances and who reach out to others. I also LOVE the elderly. I have many friends and some are in their upper 90s. Seniors can teach you so much. They are also so much fun to be around if they enjoy living. Most of my 90+ year old friends are more fun to be with than people my own age. They seem to teach me something wonderful and new each time I am around them. One in particular is Bert. She teaches an exercise class and she loves to Line Dance. She is such a joy to be around. HATS OFF TO THE ELDERLY.

    I didn't do good today, Sissy. Ate out 2 meals and we were busy running errands. Tomorrow we are going to be gone again. This has not been a good week for me. I took ACE and it helped but didn't drink my water like I should and didn't eat well. Went over calories, fat and cholesterol. Tomorrow is a new day. PRAY FOR ME. I am struggling. OK? emoticon

    Okay Janet, I started logging and you quit! What happened? I've found that if I eat more than 1000. calories a day, I don't lose any weight. I know when I was young, I went on a low calorie diet and the doctor said 1500 maintained one's weight, 1200 one would lose slowly, and 1000 one could lose a pound or two a week. For me that's been the case now; if I eat more than a thousand a day, I can't lose weight. But, I don't work out or do much of anything to burn calories. emoticon I've been checking yours and Mary's food and I can't see anything. emoticon I was hoping we would all fit into a bikini one of these days. emoticon

    Well, I have started logging again, thanks to your letter of encouragement. I know it's hard to log every single day but even when we can't log, we still know how to eat. It does keep us on our toes to log.
    Thanks for the encouragement,
