I am a retired Naval Officer living on a small ranch in Montana. My children are grown and married. We have some livestock and my husband works for local residents doing odd jobs from carpentry to haying. I have chickens and a small vegetable garden. I do a lot volunteer work. We live 11 miles outside of a town with a population of 95. We love Montana. Losing weight is a problem because I do all the baking at home-nearest grocery store is 45 miles, nearest Walmart is 90 miles. There is not a public gym to go work out at. I try to walk not just for weight but for my COPD. I use a pedometer and really enjoy looking at how much I walk each day. My will power is terrible. I am 62 years old and need to lose weight because of high cholesterol and COPD. My husband gave me a Wii Fit for Christmas 2008, I also have a Gold's exercise bike, and I plan to walk. I succeeded in quitting smoking after many tries in 2000 so I am hoping I can get my weight down to 175 again after many tries. My first goal is 225. I like to do a lot of crafts but my eyes have hindered that this year and I will probably have cataract surgery this fall. I would love to become buddies with other women my age.

Walking for Health
With the nice weather coming, I am interested in setting up a challenge that includes walking. A pedometer is not required because you can base it on minutes. I am basing the challenge on the Webwalking USA Walking Program that you can find at http://walking.about.com/cs/measure/a/webwalkingusa.htm run by Wendy Bumgardner. This challenge could also equate minutes of exercise to miles travelled. Take a look at her program. It looks like fun.

I SPENT MOST OF THE WEEK GROOMING MY DOG WITH TERRIBLE MATS. GOT THAT FINISHED. HEADING OUT TO THE GARDEN. I DIDN'T GET MUCH EXERCISE THIS PAST WEEK. I MUST GET RE-FOCUSED IF I AM GOING TO MEET MY GOAL. JUST RECEIVED THE SWEATER AND SKIRT I ORDERED FOR THE TRIP. LOOKS LOVELY ON. I NEED A VACATION.

Very Happy Down .5 inchVery Happy


Last nights meal probably put a pound back on but thats okay. Having fun is part of the mental health that keeps us going. I have posted my blueberry dessert in the kitchen It tastes a whole lot ritcher than the 282 calories per serving. And if made with fat free sour cream and splenda would be less calories. I can't participate in the stair challenge because there are no stairs around here that large. So I will try to do something else. 1/2 way there already. Wow. I have a long way to go but it is all in the trying.
