Cool New From Alaska

Hi everyone!
I am new to the whole diet thing. I never had to diet in the past, But Alaska's dark, cold winters have a way of packing on the fat.
I am 38 and a Grandmother as of August! I want to be a fun Nana. I don't want my Grandson to sit in my lap in a rocking chair... I want to chase him around and take him on hikes and camping trips.
At 170, you can imagine I don't move very fast. I guess if a bear ever chases me I will make a good meal.
My big idea for weight loss is the South Beach diet and cardio 7 days a week. Walking in a foot of snow is pretty strenuous.
My husband and I have a hay feild we work in the summer, but every year there is more weight to lose and I don't seem to make the mark by September. So I am already heavier going in to winter than I was the previous year.
So far I haven't had bread, rice, potatoes or anything with Starch in 3 weeks. No sugar for two, and no caffene in a week. Now I am ready to Start Phase 1 (had to make sure I could do it before I started. I don't like to fail.)
So, my goal is 140. That is still overweight for my height, But...38. I don't expect miracles.
I hope you all have a great day. I am glad to be part of the support group. I look forward to making friends.

HI, I am new to this site and dieting as well. I wish you luck on your journey. It must be great to live in Alaska... I love snow and we rerely get it where I live. Believe in yourself and keep working as hard as you already have the past few weeks.

welcome dangergirl!
The grandma thing amazes me! I guess it shouldn't though. I have known a few 36-39 year old first time grandmas. Living in Alaska sounds like an adventure. I don't know if I am cut out for it but it sounds interesting to me!

good luck to you and join us on our goal threads! the current one is for valentines day.
Laura

Hi! I'm a fellow alaskan, so I totally understand what you're saying about the long, cold, and dark winters!

I'm also looking for a ticker. But when I go to user control panel, I don't see signature.

Danger, Suzanne was forced to up the post count for tickers/signatures, because we were getting a lot fo spammers. Once you hit 30, you'll be oK.
