My mother died in May. I found out I had breast cancer in May. Not my favorite month of 2012. Done with surgeries, tests, etc., will be starting radiation soon. I need to get back to a healthy lifestyle of good eating and exercising. I had to cut back on my activities because of surgery and I missed my exercising. Very frustrating. Needless to say my weight has gone up and I am anxious to change that. I'm planning to go to Europe with my son when radiation is finished and my goal is to lose 12 pounds by then and to be in shape to do a lot of walking. Onward!

My Goals:
After a break from Sparkpeople I have had to work to become remotivated. I have achieved a lesser degree of motivation than when I first started and it has become more difficult to lose weight. My goal is to stick with the program and get on the steady weight loss track again. It is much easier to stick to a healthy lifestyle while strongly motivated!

My Program:
I am tracking my food every day and drinking lots of water. I get some form of exercise everyday. My non workout days always include a long walk/jog with my pal Luci. Now I run inside or outside almost everyday and do strength training every other day.

Personal Information:
I have one son that graduated from college in May and is working in Chicago and another son who will be finishing his 3rd year in college and graduating this May, a year early. I live in Illinois, love to play golf and hope to retire to a golf community in Arizona some time in the next year.

Other Information:
I have a wonderful rescue dog named Luci. She is my walking/running companion - I just have to pick up my walking shoes and she is excited and ready to go!

    Thanks for your suggestion, less is more is my new byword! Portion control is a tough one, but I find if I slow down and eliminate mindless eating I am in better control.
    emoticon bet I can't just eat 1!

    Thanks for your words of wisdom on my blog... I have to keep in mind that I have time on my side here (in the grand scheme of things). I may not make my birthday goal...but I can certainly push forward and make a new goal.

    Have a great day!!!

    Yes, our goals are quite the same. PLUS, we've both lost the same. I weigh in Friday, but I unofficially am down 17 lbs.

    And we both love dogs. What kind is yours? My three make my day -- wake me with kisses every morning. They don't care if I have morning breath!!!

    Thanks for being my friend! emoticon
