58, going through menopause and back on Spark.

Onwards and upwards as they say..

I'm nothing if not determined (and getting lots of practice climbing back on the wagons!).

It's been tough with all the health issues for myself, my daughter and now my husband. Add to that now taking care of my mom who lives with us (88 yrs and frail); its tough to find time to eat properly and care for myself. So many things make her nauseous and it's tough to find something she can eat so I'm not making two meals all the time.

Hoping to find the time and the discipline to keep up with my goals. SO far, lost almost 20 pounds... mostly through intermittent fasting. It seems to be the only thing that has helped given the menopause has made it much harder.

Here's to staying true to myself!

Fitness Minutes: 25,408

My Goals:
Eating healthier
Get more fit
Lose weight
Reduce stress level


My Program:
Eating at the table instead of in front of the television; will help me to be more mindful of what goes in my body
Logging my food; both good and bad; keeping me on track with my calorie intake
Exercising to the best of my ability; being mindful of my body's limits to ensure I stick to it
Learning to let go of things I cannot control



Personal Information:
I'm 58, married and looking to get off the yo yo diet bandwagon. Love to travel and stay active outdoors when the weather cooperates. Absolutely love gardening... both my peace and my nemesis.... I often tend to overdo it by spending too much time gardening... with fibromyalgia it's tough... an alarm is not enough as i'm good at ignoring them... lol.... so my husband and mom both let me know when two hours is up.... giving me time and energy to finish whatever needs to be finished right away and clean up. Need to find some less taxing hobbies!

    thanks for the comment. Have been having difficulties with increased heart failure - sleeping a lot, very very tired, difficulty breathing, can't do much. Diet went to hell in a hand basket - gained all my weight back and then some as I do every tie I lose weight. My glucose levels have been crazy and now on insulin before each meal and before dinner. Need to get back to logging foods and exercise, etc. I'm still doing my aquafit at the pool 4 times a week when I can and starting a Cardiac Rehab Exercise/Education program for a year starting this Fri. Looking forward to my youngest sister coming Fri. afternoon and will be here for Thanksgiving and her birthday. Hope you and your family are doing well. Hugs, Lin emoticon
