At age 53 I fulfilled my goal of becoming a certified Scuba Diver. Now, my weight loss goals are next. I am a 3 year uterine cancer survivor. I know that losing weight is important for keeping cancer away. January 2009 update: Have lost 30 pounds now and feel so much better. I just ordered a new wetsuit, booties and fins in my new size as a non-food reward. Next, I will need a smaller BC. What fun to go shopping for new things in a "normal" size again. Update March 2009: Have now lost 35.5 pounds. I feel so much better, healthier. Food issues are still hard some days. I am now trying to "get busy" when I have those urges to overeat.

Member Since: 12/28/2007

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
1. To keep the weight off this time. I have been at my goal weight 3 times in the past 15 years and always gained it back within 2 years.

2. To journal and plan my meals for the rest of my life. In the past I had quit journalling and planning and that's how I regained the weight.

My Program:
I make a menu twice a week so I stay on a healthy eating plan. I do exercise video's 3 times a week. Now I have added strength training to my exercise routine.

Personal Information:
I live in Oregon. Love flower and vegetable gardening. We raise organic angus beef, have chickens for eggs, and raise our own chicken/fryers.

Other Information:
Scuba is my passion after many years of snorkeling. It took great courage to learn scuba, in fact I quit the class twice because of fear. I persisted for two years and finally made it through all the water tasks. Now after 60 dives I feel more confidant, calm and relaxed while diving.

    Wow! You have lost about 40 pounds already- way to go! I'm so impressed. How did you do it? I normally gain over the holidays but with the passing of my Mom was not interested in eating.
    My cravings are pretty mild most of the time, due to Korean herbal tea (or as my co-workers call it- deer blood). The tea is meant to make my liver and kidney's more healthy but it also curbs hunger and cravings. When it hits me though, I will definitely email you for some support! And you do the same please.

    When is your next dive trip? I'm heading to the Aquacat in 2 weeks and then I'm going to Roatan in May for a few months to get my DM.
