Hello, My name is Nancy. I've been married for 44 years, and over-weight for at least half of them. In the last few years I have developed high blood pressure, high chloresterol, coronary artery disease and pre-diabtes. Last December I decided to get serious about getting healthier so that I can enjoy retirement with my husband. At that time I was 203 pounds. I have a ways to go. I love animals and most crafts, the times I get to spend with my grand daughter are precious ; and singing praises to Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior is the best of all.

Member Since: 2/13/2009

Fitness Minutes: 61

My Goals:
My goal is to learn Godly wisdom and self-control, epecially in the area of food; and to stop indiscriminate eating.
By May 18th (my next doctor's appt) I hope to lower my glucose and triglycerides and increase my HDL

My Program:
I have started tracking all food that goes in my mouth. I keep a food journal and my goal is 1150-1500 calories a day. Even on a day when it gets ugly I write it down. Praise God there have not been too many of those days since starting this journey. I can't do alot of aerobic type exercise because of a ruptured tendon in my foot and plantars fascitis, but I have a chair dancing DVD and I love to dance around a little to a lively Praise tape. I do strength training exercises also.

Personal Information:
My husband and I are pressently living in Seattle Wa with my 97 yr old father.....who is quite amazing. We retired while still in our 50's and moved to AZ (mostly snowbirds - leaving during the heat of the summer to head back to WA or OR coast and visit family). We moved back up here to stay with Dad about 5 yrs ago. We hope to return to AZ at some future time. I definitely want to be healthy enough to do that! We have one son, and a wonderful 12 yr. old grand daughter that we don't get to see enough of. We have two kitties who love traveling in our RV as much as we do.

Other Information:
My first reward will come when I reach 175 pounds. I plan to get my hair cut and foiled.

    Hi Nancy,
    how have you been and how is your Dad doing? I hope he got better.
    I had thought that I couldn't eat all that the biggest loser club wanted me to eat but then just yesterday I wrote down everything I ate and I found out that while I am not eating that much it added up to 2305 calories for the dayOOPPS.NO WONDER I GAINED 4 POUNDS AND NOW I AM BACK TO 240..
    I found this page on www.webmd.com and under diet and nutrition it has where you can put in the food and it gives you the calories...
    you can also print up pages for your food journal and your exercise journal..
    I hope you have a happy Mothers Day..

    Hey I found you!! But I didn't find your thread (How About Fit Over 70) I probably didn't enter it right. Oh well. I'll get it figured out. Either way we can get together in other ways.
