Hi, I'm a 56 year old disabled female Veteran wo recently moved to the Oregon Coast after living many years in Florida, brrrr its cold here. Over the past year+ I've gone from 250 to 189, and still need to drop 50 more. I'm looking for support and any insights you may have, since I've hit a plateau and am getting discouraged. If any one needs my encouragement or advice, I'd be willing to share how I got this far.

Member Since: 8/19/2008

My Goals:
I want to be healthier, thinner, sexier LOL, get a real handle on my diabeties and HBP as well as my cholesterol. I hope that losing the weight will lessen my pain and dependcy on medication as well

My Program:
I'm eatting less and healthier foods. I try to move myself more and stretch consciencely, make my body bend and straighten as much as possible, and do a lot of motor skills with my hands arms and other joints, except my back and hips.

Personal Information:
I've filled this out before, but it keeps disappearing. I'm living with my hubby and puppy on the Southern Coast ofOregon. On Monday we celebrate 36 years together, and I celebrate being back to my wedding weight!! WHOOHOO!!! We have 3 grown children 2 girls and a boy, 8 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren. I'm the eldest of 8, we were 5 girls and 3 boys. Except for Johnny who is in FL, and Cheryl who passed away from cancer 12 years ago, all ive in upstate NY, where both my hubby and I were raised. Graduated from MACS and hen on toSUNY at Oswego. Boh of us ended up in the Army, did our time and came home, me disabled and with 3 children, him, a tad wiser, and learning how to handle the situation as best he could.

    Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
    If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

    Be thankful when you don't know something,
    for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

    Be thankful for the difficult times.
    During those times you grow.

    Be thankful for your limitations,
    because they give you opportunities for improvement.

    Be thankful for each new challenge,
    because it will build your strength and character.

    Be thankful for your mistakes.
    They will teach you valuable lessons.

    Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
    because it means you've made a difference.

    It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
    A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
    are also thankful for the setbacks.

    Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
    Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
    and they can become your blessings.

    May you have a very Happy Thanksgiving. I will be counting your friendship among my many blessings. Thank you for being my friend.
    Blessings and hugs,
