Yes, it has been a while since I updated this page! And I really want to change photos as I have many in my computer but always depend on daughter or daughter-in-law to help me with that. Maybe I will try it on my own.
Right now I am at weight that one weight loss company told me should be goal. But that is still overweight and I really want to lose 10 more lbs. to be where SP recommends.
I am very proud of the exercise I now get when in the beginning I could not walk for 5 minutes due to a bad knee and hip. Today I get as many as 130 minutes of exercise. Especially love the water aerobics, but also enjoy walking and the recumbent bike.
My husband of nearly 62 years supports and encourages me all the time. And I have just started challenges which I enjoy even though I am not a competitive person. But they do keep me on my toes. During the 56 days of the 2010 Winter 5 % Challenge I hope to lose 10 lbs., a real challenge for me!

My Goals:
To Be Healthy and now to maintain my weight loss.
Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.
Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to

My Program:
The Nutrition Tracker is my constant buddy as I use it faithfully every day. With my bad knee I didn't think I could exercise much, but now am up to a 40-45 minute walk and 30 minutes of riding the recumbent bike. Losing weight has certainly helped!

Personal Information:
I live in the country outside Wake Forest, North Carolina with my husband of 58 years and where our son and wife are next door with our three grandchildren. We live on the second floor in their Carriage House just a few feet away. We have two more grandchildren who live in Columbus, Ohio. We have a daughter there and a son in Port Clinton, OH.

Other Information:
Much of our summer is spent on Lake Gaston while much of the winter we are in Frostproof, FL.

    Your 12# loss has been great. I have Metabolic Syndrome, so my weight loss has been slow, too. 35# in 8 months but I will NOT gain it back. My doctor was really surprised I'd lost anything. I told him that before SP, I'd lose five pounds and gain back six over and over and he said "Well, that isn't surprising with Metabolic Syndrome."
    Just keep eating GOOD nutrition and doing SOME exercise. Jack LaLanne is 92 and works out two hours every single morning of his life, so know you can do well. He says that the more we push ourselves, the more our bodies will improve and I believe that. USE IT OR LOSE IT......Jack's Motto.
