After spending the last several years battling a heart attack, a total hip replacement, uterine cancer, losing my job and having to find a new one, major depression and binge eating I think life is finally beginning to turn around. I think the main thing I have learned through this is summed up in the Galaxy Quest tag line, "Never give up. Never give in." God has been with me through all these ordeals and I have managed to come out a little better than I when I started through each one. I jokingly tell my friends that maybe I'll get it together by the time I'm 65 (I ‘m 60 now). However I'm definitely trying to get my weight and health back into line before then. My goal is to be a healthy weight and physically fit by October 2019 and then to keep it that way!

Personal Information:
I'm an empty nester. My son graduated from law school 2013 and married in May 2014 to a wonderful girl. I work as a RN in ICU and in my free time I love to play computer games, read, watch movies, and knit.

    Thank you for your kind note and pedometer goodie. Work stress can really suck the motivation right out of us. Stay strong and take good care of yourself, Pink Flamingo friend!

    Just stopping by to say hi. Hope you had a nice 4th of July. Mine was relaxing and it was just what I needed. I hope you are enjoying the challenge. Not sure what is happening with my weight but it is going up instead of down. It's frustrating because I have been exercising like crazy. It's amazing what stress can do to your body. But I am seriously thinking of going to the doctor to have them check my thyroid and maybe adjust my thyroid medicine...or maybe even something else is going on. Anyway - enough about me. You are rocking this challenge!!! Keep up the good work. Debbie

    Thanks for posting your weight for week 4. I hope you are making time to do most of the activities. All of this works together for overall health. When I do not eat right nor lose weight, I remember that I have made other changes in my habits to be more healthy...water, movement, sleep, saying No to bad choices and becoming too busy, prayer, music, getting outside, massages, etc.
