Thankful for my life, now time to appreciate it.

It's been years since I've actively participated in SP. I was in a near fatal car accident in Aug. 2015 and have worked hard to recouperate from a broken neck, broken tibia plateau and 3rd degree burn on my leg from the engine block. I'm thankful every day that there were angels on earth to come to my aid and that I've been given additional time with my loved ones.

To do that, I need to start taking better care of myself, get my diabetes under control and lose weight so my leg and back can hold me up.

Current weight is 210. Goal weight - 175
Current activity level - very little. Goal for activity - 1 hour per day

My Program:
Shop the perimeter of the store

Going to exercise at the pool at least 3X per week

Walking 30 mins or climbing stairs every day.

Drink lots of water

Use the 40% Carbs, 30% Protien & 30% Fat ratio for my daily cals. This works best with my diabetes.

Personal Information:
I live in Kemmerer, Wyoming. My name is Charlotte. I have 2 grown children and I am married. I run a rental businesses and I love to quilt! I am very good at organizing for other people, so now I am going to organize my health routine and make it work.

Other Information:
My BMR currently is 1948 with sedentary daily activity (1623 x 1.2). To have 500 cal/day deficit = 1448 avg. intake. If I want to lose 2 lbs. per week need to also do about 500 calorie burn in exercise. I am limited on amount of activity and endurance sine my car wreck, so I'm setting my goal at 1 lb per week instead of 2.

    Just checking in with some old friends.........glad to see you are posting again! I'm not quilting much now either and not even a member of the quilt teams because I didn't feel I was contributing much. I'm still here at spark people and I can certainly empathize with the arthritis issues because I've had 6 surgeries on my arms and hands in recent years. I still long to quilt again but it discourages me to know that my ability to do careful handwork is over. I'm even intimidated by the sewing machine; maybe I don't want to find out that I can't do well with it now either. Anyway, we all have to make come backs in life and I know you and I can do it! We just need to refuse to give up! One day this weight will be gone and I will finish another quilt! emoticon

    I stopped by your page today to see what your award was all about and couldn't help but view all your photos. Very impressive quilts (and a lovely daughter!). You have inspired me to create a new quilt! Thank you!!!
