Hi everyone! My name is Dee and I'm glad to be a part of this community. I'm starting my Healthy Lifestyle Plan today, Tuesday, 21 Dec 2010. I thought about putting it off until after the holidays & after my husband's birthday (which is 6 Jan) but I can't take it another day!

I just wrote my first Blog about it today, entitled: Shoot! Even my "Big Slacks" are Too Tight! :-(
BUT...I'm already on my way to a Healthier Life!
"Some day" is here!
THIS is the day!

Member Since: 5/16/2009

Fitness Minutes: 2,609

My Goals:
I turned 50 on my birthday, 14 Sep 2010. My goal is to be at least 50 pounds lighter & much healthier before my next birthday!
**My Immediate Goal:
lose 10% of my current weight

My Program:
* Drink at least 8 glasses of water/day
* At least 30mins of daily exercise
* Plan my meals & healthy snacks in advance & track in my Food Journal
* Add more fresh fruits & vegetables to my daily meal plan
* Multi-vitamin daily
* (Shoot for) 7-8 hours of sleep/night
* Plan rewards for each mini-goal achieved!

Personal Information:
My parents & grandma were recently called home to Glory. I'm still trying to come to terms with that. Indeed, it's overwhelming. Every day is a struggle. I miss them more than words can express.

One thing I'm Sure of is that they are proud of me & cheering me on, as always! They lived a Blessed life & I am Blessed to have had them in my life: raising, nurturing, teaching, & loving me.

They fought to live, they fought the good fight. Now, they are resting in the arms of our Lord. In honoring them, I will do no less than to be the very best I can for My children as They've been for me.

Other Information:
Born & raised in the Great state of Ohio...Go Buckeyes! Currently living in TX with my wonderfully supportive & loving husband of 26yrs. We have 2 terrific, loving, & God-fearing sons: 24 & 20 yrs old. We are a very close family :-)

I am learning to speak Spanish. So far, so good! If anyone here in San Antonio is doing the same, let me know! I'd love to invite you to one of our Spanish Language MeetUp Group meetings!
