Back with Sparkpeople

Friday, November 12, 2010

I have been away from Sparkpeople because I was confined to a nursing home to recuperate and get IV's. My knee has healed and I have recovered and I am now back at home. I am ready to go on with my life and I am starting with going back to Sparkpeople. I have gained 8 lbs. and I really need to lose weight, so I am starting all over on my low-sodium and low-calorie diet. I could believe how hard it is to diet in a nursing home. They feed you way too many starches. I love starches so I ate them. They didn't offer any alternatives. They also, serve sweet snacks two times a day. I stayed away from them though.

My goals are simple. I intend to begin exercising and to follow my diet to lose weight and get in shape at the same time. You don't know how embarrassing it is to have these young girls lift on you, when you are in your 40's and well over weight. It would be much easier all around if I would just buckle down and get my weight to a normal amount. I could save myself much embarrassment.
