Update 9/5/18: I am now 60 years old. I lost 55 lbs last year through a combination of daily exercise and WW. My A1C dropped to normal levels and I no longer take diabetes medication. As of today, I have gained back 45 of those lbs. I have seen both my A1C and FBS (Fasting Blood Sugar) rise. If I don't do something, I will be back on medication soon. I am committing to daily exercise. I will also be mindful of what I eat and track it on SparkPeople.

1/12/11: I had knee replacement surgery on 12/15/10. My recovery is going well. I will continue to take weight off so this knee will last as long as possible and so that my other knee replacement will be easier (now that I know what to expect). We did take our trip to Spain in September and had a very good time.

Start Date: I am 50+ years old. Arthritis limits my mobility. I am planning a 30th wedding anniversary trip to Spain in September 2010, and would like to be able to do some walking without too much pain.

My Goals:
I want to average a weight loss of 2 lbs per week this year through a healthy lifestyle. This would create many "pluses" in my life (including the satisfaction of losing over 100 lbs in one year; having a BMI in the normal range; no diabetes; no high blood pressure; less pain).

My Program:
I will record all my food in SparkPeople. I will make exercise a daily occurrence.

    Thanks for commenting on my Positive Affirmations journal! And you are right, it does help make them sink in, and I don't just copy and paste either...
