I will never give it up. I got to get myself in shape. I have gotten to the highest I have ever gotten. This needs to be my wake up call. I got to get serious before the dangerous side effects of the weight catch up with me. Right now everything is mild or none existant. But I don't want to wait till it is bad and I end up in the hospital or worse.

I have 3 grandbabies now and I want to be able to see them graduate high school and college if they go. I want to be able to see my great grandbabies like my mom has. So i got to get serious.

So i am back here watching my calories and exercising.

Goal 290

Though I am not stopping there. Just my goal right now :)

My Program:
I am doing the sparks program of watching my calories and other things that go with the food.

I do my cycling 4-5 days a week for a minimum of 30 minutes, but up to 50 minutes. I also add strength training every other day. Right now it is low weights but working up as my body gets stronger.

Drinking pretty much only water, cause i know the pop and tea have sugar and that keeps the weight on for me.

Personal Information:
I am a mother of 3. My kids are all grown now. Wife of 28 years to my supportive loving husband. Love swimming and camping though I don't do it much anymore.

I think this is they hardest I have ever worked to lose weight.

Other Information:
I am a big Laurell K. Hamilton, Anita Blake, NUT. I love how she writes. Excited for her next book to come out in June.

    I remember a time when it hurt just to walk to get to the bathroom after I fell. Seriously messed up my left leg and ligaments all the way up to my hip. Took me 7 months just to be able to walk again without pain. It did damage my lower legs though to a point that I need to strengthen those too. Lymph Gland issues behind my knees and groin. Have to love it. So as the weight comes off, slowly the fluid is able to travel back down again to the feet. And when it does, then you won't have cold feet. I wear diabetic socks now as well, because anklets cut off the circulation as well. Learn something new every day! Have a great day, thanks for visiting me. and looking forward to a successful 2011 with you and everyone! *hugs* Jean emoticon emoticon emoticon
