Well, it's like this.....a little over a year ago I started working on losing weight and it worked really well. I lost to within three pounds of my know, that place where you begin to get a little cocky and start cheating and then never make goal? Yea, uh hu. Then my husband got sick and ended up in the hospital off and on and we had to move to Houston for a few months and then one excuse led to another and I gained all that weight back. Now, I am upset with myself and I am ready to do something about it. My coworker who used to help keep me motivated is not sitting beside me at work any more, so I can sure use some encouragement to help me stay on track and to get this weight off my body again!

So, anybody that would.....HELP!!! Thanks in advance....

Fitness Minutes: 2,585

My Goals:
My goals are to make healthy meals everyday, instead of just eating "stuff". Learning to shop, cook and prepare meals for just one person day in and day out is a new experence for me. So, I have a challenge there.

Also, I want to change my view of food from living to eat to eating to live. I don't want food to be my forcus is life.

My Program:
Prepare foods ahead of time and freeze them. That way there will be no excuse for not having a healthy meal and I will have more control over the calorie and fat intake.

Also, I will add exercise as well as the yard work that I already enjoy to help burn excess calories.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in Texas and am proud of it; however, I have been living in Oklahoma since 1977. I am 59 years old.

I have three lovely children and three wonderful grandsons.

I am recently widowed and learning to live in that situation now. Not having to answer to anyone at home can be nice, but one tends to eat poorly because I don't have anyone to cook for except me. I tend to get lazy about that and it is showing.

Other Information:
I enjoy working out doors. My yard is a challenge this year because I have had to neglect it for about 2 1/2 years because of my husbands illness.

Other interests are my grandchildren. I attend a lot of baseball games for my oldest....he will be 12 years old May 28. The other two, ages 7 & 3, live next door and can be quite entertaining on a sunny afternoon in the yard.

I also enjoy attending church and visiting with friends and family.

    Hello sister dear. I jammed my spine back in May and it is giving me much pain. It was hurting when I was home and that bed of Mother's sure didn't help it any. I am in therapy, but it's not helping as far as I can tell. The pain and problems are getting much worse. I wish Dr. Javed would do another MRI, because I think things have changed since he saw my last one. I hurt. I can also see and feel the swelling mostly on my right side. Well, got to run. I have therapy every morning at 10:00/. Love you sis.

    I do have more pictures. Karen was suppose to email me and walk me through a way to get them were I could send them all out at once to everyone with an email address. I wonder if she is back from Mexico. Someone told me she was going. I will get a hold of her and see what I can do. Love you sis. emoticon
